I'm a messy person and work in a cluttered environment. It's not that I don't have enough space. Not at all. I'm just disorganized. From time to time I go on cleanup binges, but order never seems to last. Maybe that's why my secret obsession is following the Tiny House Blog. Imagine living and working in 100 sq.ft., or a little more or a little less. You'd really have to stay organized. Simplify. Pare down.
This week Alex at Tiny House Talk posted this intriguing little video featuring plans for a tiny house with a pullout bed under the kitchen space. This makes it possible to have one's bed on the ground floor. Many seniors (you know who you are) don't enjoy climbing down and up ladders to the sleeping loft during the night to heed nature's call.
Meanwhile, in my very messy studio this week, I finished a few more books with "real" covers, and am now returning to some books with wraparound covers. For these I recycle (or upcycle, don't you love that word) failed wall hangings. I coat the backs with acrylic medium to stabilize them, then cut 'em up. Here's the latest; it's enough for one medium sized book and two tiny ones.
