Organised Mess

When I woke up this morning the sun was streaming in through the blinds, highlighting what a mess my little studio had become. Today I cleaned it all up, tidied and organised, but not too much. The after shot is not much different to this one (LOL) an organised mess, rather than perfection!

I have been doing a lot of journaling lately and I 've really been enjoying the therapeutic benefits. It simply makes me happy. I dug deep into a boot box where I keep every little piece of art I have ever created. These little pieces are being pasted into my journal. They deserve to be receiving a bit of attention, not sitting inside a dark box with the lid on.

After quite a break I am back to a yoga practice, kneading & stretching all the kinks and tight spots in my body and mind. Another thing that makes me happy! I hope you are doing something that makes you happy today, life is way too short!


  1. these pages are so bright and cheerful. your studio looks great to me. Nice you can work in a small space.

  2. Love this ! Doing what makes you happy. Simple, right ? How come we forget so often ? I am going to follow your lead today, Lovely Patti. Be the change...
    Happy Thursday !

  3. My best friend gave me a sketchbook yesterday, one with a hardbound cover...I am turning it into an art journal, my first.

    I do like it when I make my studio area neat for a new project and the next mess.

    To each mess it's own space!

    Life is too short and I am going to be so pissed when mine comes to an end! I just know I will NOT be done or ready to go!


please share a thought......
