The Results are In ... from the dirty studio contest!

So, I want to show you the results of my efforts to pack up my studio for the 13.5 hour drive from Florida to Maryland tomorrow.  I don't think I need to burn into your head the way the studio looked before today. Here is how it looks right now .. on Monday evening.














The winners are Renate at Put a Little Magic in your Life who came in at 2 hrs., 35 minutes.  Green beads are going to Renate.

And, because Sylvia at Studio Sylvia was only 10 minutes shy of Renate's best guess, she will be receiving blue beads.

Thanks to everyone who played along.  It made my job of packing up much more fun.  My successful time of 1 hr and 10 minutes is the result of that great tool bag and the black jewelry case that holds 8 trays.  Actually, the studio is looking a little cleaner than I normally leave it, but if I had said it took me only 40 minutes or something, you all would have thought I cheated!  

On another note, on this Memorial Day in remembrance of those who fought for our freedoms ... no matter in what country you live ... my deepest gratitude.

I am impressed! You must have one very well organized traveling/packing system. I am also inspired to go clean up my mess. Love those cookie trays for organizing. We have no cookie trays in our kitchen because they are all in the studio. Safe travels.

I can't believe you were able to clean up your studio in less than two hours!! Are you sure you didn't have little elves helping you out?? I guess you have this down to a science:)

Thanks, everyone, for giving me so much praise. But, I just wanted to let you know that obviously my studio doesn't stay like the "After" picture! :-)
