My take on the Clip Up Organizer

One of my birthday presents from my best daughter was a Clip Up Organizer. This month anything with label or organizer in the title is my favorite thing. She has hers holding all sorts of beautiful scrap booking papers and its fabulous, alphabetical and everything. Not being a scrapbooker, I have used mine to hold my finished jewelry pieces, also fabulous but in a shiny and glittery way {read better}. I love it! It so works for me. One sample of every style is attached to a large mirror with clear suction cups and the various colors of each sample are displayed in the Clip Up Organizer. I think I need spot lights or something now and It will be perfection. I'm going to take a picture so you all can enjoy.

To My People At Dymo Labels

On Behalf of neurotic compulsive Capricorns, I wish to thank you and call an end to this the 1st Label Games of this century. On behalf of manic obcessives I will call you again to participate in the 2nd games once I have located refills somewhere in the Western provinces......Bonjour, comment savo.....yadda, yadda, yadda.

Let the art happen!

Got going by 5:30 this am. In the Studio, pulling out the good watercolor paper, I was exhilarated with the idea to do some family portraits. Drank another pot of coffee and decided the crystal was looking dim, the china cabinet smudgy, The kitchen was inefficiently organized, and the husbands work area could do with a "clean sweep". Three thirty found me exiled to the basement....something about my stuff is MY STUFF.... I was needing a lay down anyway. Tomorrow I will paint.

Took a break from my compulsive manic labeling state and discovered the incredible blog of Susan Schwake. Her jewlery is oddly addictive. I spent an hour in a trance like state completely in awe of her pieces.
