The reorganizing avalanche has begun!!
What started it? Wanting to do some brush painting--hehe! Did I ever get to the brush painting? Nope.
I'm getting set up to paint, right? Wanted to fill the wooden taboret I bought a little while ago--planned on having a lot of my Chinese brush painting supplies in there. So handy--can roll them out from under the table, right?
Got that done. Love it!
My tiny palette collection, etc.
I may shift things around in there later--but was so happy with the fresh change. PROBLEM--that shift left a gaping, empty hole in the hallway bookcase. Which led to packing up the oil and acrylic supplies....
....which left more empty space...
....and more chaos. :)
I'd try to ignore it. I can only do a little at a time, anyways, right? I'd take breaks for an hour or so....
....and then I'd think--I'll do just a little bit more. That is how I moved half of a living room bookcase directly over to the hallway bookcase by evening.
Little by little all day and all evening long--I finally filled the bookcase in the hallway. TADA!!!!
And emptied a bookcase in the living room!! (So much dust behind those books--hehe!)
Removed all the filled satchels from the other bookcase....
....and brought the new satchels (on the right) into the living room.
Total chaos over here--but I love it! It will eventually all get reorganized. The oil and acrylic boxes will be shuffled into the storage area down the hall. I have closets to go through, too--and other things I want to move down to the storage area. But first I have to clean and organize the storage area and take some things down to the garage....
And so the cleaning avalanche goes--hehehe! I can hardly move today, but I am very pleased with the progress.
Woke up to a real snowstorm out there! White! White! White! Travel advisories and the rest. I'm on R&R--and glad my huge cleaning and reorganizing project is finally under way. Guess I'll have to catch up with the brush painting group when I can, eh? Hehe! :):)
