A little over a week away ...

Okay, imagine Elvis Costello singing in the background to music written by Burt Bachrach ... the album, "Painted from Memory" ... a studio that looks like all windows were open during a tornado ... but with exceedingly good order for the maniac who works inside ... and a deadline of today!

Here are the REAL tools of the trade ... the laptop and print-outs of the projects. I decided to work with hard copies in order to make notes about materials I need to pack for recreating the projects at North Light's studio. But secretly I'm thinking if I bring everything I own, I won't forget anything!



The jewelry trays contain each of the projects and the materials needed to make the projects.


Another view of the wreckage. I'm thinking that once everything is packed for the trip, I'll have a clean studio! I remember this being the phenomenon when the kids were toddlers ... once we got the playpen, the high chair, the stroller, the toys packed in the car, the house looked great!



Another perspective!


The final jewelry projects are mailed to North Light today. We're getting dangerously close! Butterflies! Pray for me ...

I wish my wreckage looked as tidy and organized as yours. The time since you started your book project has flown by! Good luck!

I still see some bare spaces so it's not really THAT messy. Unlike mine where I'm slowly losing the ability to walk across the floor!

Yipeeee!!!! Barbara, you did it! The projects are sent off?? What a an accomplishment, what a relief, what a great feeling!
Such a great idea - to house each individual project and their components in trays like this, all ready to go! So happy for you!
