I have so much I want to do right now and packing and moving are not included in that list of things.
What I’d really like is to already be at the new house with my art studio all painted and set up so I can just go close myself up in there for hours and play and paint and rip paper and spread glue and journal and just create pretty things that make me happy.
But that’s not how it is right now…packing and moving have to be done first.
Pre-move painting is done….out of necessity, not that it’s actually complete. We did the rooms that HAD to be done and will paint my studio, the kitchen cabinets and the walls in the hall, not to mention an all out redo of the 2nd bathroom and laundry room after we move in. There was only so much time so prioritizing had to be done.
This before and after is in the hall. The house was built in the 30’s or so (I’m going to find out more about the house after we get moved) and this cabinet is a can closet for all the canned goods. The door to the left of the can closet goes into my studio. (And yes, that fugly wallpaper is definitely going but that will have to be done after we’ve moved in.)
So, you can see how busy we’ve been. I am so exhausted and my heart just wants to be done with this crazy move. I have art journaling I need to do for my Kelly Kilmer class but it’s just going to have to wait. My mind knows that we’ll be settled in within a week or so and I will have beautiful places to sit and journal with my morning coffee, to paint and collage til my heart’s content.
I keep telling myself, just a little more time and all will settle down. Just a little more time…
If I’m not around for a few days, y’all will know why…packing and moving. Oh joy. Wish me luck.
Peace, Love & Art,
