Big messes you or someone made in your studio 6 Years, 8 Months ago  
I know it happens.

We have all our paint brushes, oils, canvases, or wood, metals, papers, containers all stacked on tables, or on our shelves....

We work on a piece and have all that we are using out on our table, paint cans/tubes open, varnish jar at the ready....

What big mess did you make? Or did someone else make?




I have a container specifically for my jump rings. I have silver, brass, bronze, black, matte grey, etc etc....from 6mm to 4mm. Each divider holds probably several hundred of each size and color....


Well...

my little sweet cat...the one that actually DOESN'T purposefully knock all your valuables to the floor when she decides she wants a second helping of dinner...decided to burst across my L shaped work desk and sent the container scattering across the floor.

Somehow, it didn't 'quite' open. So there were a good many jumprings all over the floor.

And every divider was mixed up with ALL different kinds of jump rings. hundreds of black rings with the silver, the bronze with the brass...oh and of course the different crimp beads i had were all over the place too. Forgot those were in that container.

So many hours I diligently spent separating each one back into their dividers, one itty bitty handful at a time.

And just as I am finished...not a week later - she does it AGAIN!


Oh how I wish I could seperate my cats from my studio...but we all have to share the same space.

>.<

Tell me your story. Cuz you MUST have one!

I am afraid I don't have a story to tell, in so much as I don't really have a studio, the house we are very slowly renovating has a tiny box room, where I store all my stuff! I do work in there too from time to time but it isnt really that great. I also move to the big pine table in our living/kitchen room, sit at a large eisel or sometimes at the table in our homebuilt verandah.

The only accident I have fairly often is knocking pots of water over, but I have wipe clean cloths on our tables so it is not usually an issue and I often use a tabletop eisel so my art is usually safe.

I guess the worst thing I ever did was trying to dry out paper maché at speed using the microwave. I set fire to it! lol

Sahetah, what was worse was that I didn't even know. My husband walked in from work and saw flames shooting out! (that could be one of the reasons he divorced me! lol)

OMG!!! That'd be so scary. He must have thought you'd burn the house down one day and he'd come home to a pile of ashes!
