On a Roll and a Tip

IMG_7111

I read a quote recently that

started my engines.


                                                                A hunch is creativity trying to tell you something. 
                                                                                                  (Frank Capra)


As a result
my house is a big hot mess.

I am on a roll,

and if my Bee Gees painter

Benny doesn’t divorce me,

some things may get done.


He is a grumpy artiste

who says three things to me:


“You got the paint?”

”When you make up your mind.”

and

”Why don’t you like the color?”
P1000217

I don’t know why I don’t like the paint color,

I just know that when I stand in from of the

paint swatch strips at Sherwin Williams,

brain cells start leaving my body.


I am not kidding.

It may as well be geometry class,

or horror of horrors,

word problems.


Tomorrow is a new day though.

I will not be intimidated.


Now to two important tips:


I began my project of rearranging

and freshening things up

by

(wait for it…)


1. REMOVING THINGS.

(nothing is arranged in this room)



Removing things lead to my next step-



2.  SET UP A STAGING TABLE.

I edited first, but I needed a place to put those things

until I could deal with them later.

A library table in the center of my dining area worked for me.


So there is a plan.


I have studied the gallery wall tutorial

and tomorrow is the day.


Every tutorial I read included the word

frustrating.


Perfect.
