On Saturday morning, I got up as the sun was just beginning to peak over the horizon,
painting the darkness with a streak of deep, glowing crimson...
I sat in the chair by the window in my studio, and sipped my coffee, drinking in the peace and quiet...
...watching as, bit by bit, the sky grew brighter...
...and the pink stripes faded into winter gray.
I saw smoke, and looked out to see a tree stump burning in the back yard; my husband was already outside, working.
Uh-oh... the dogs spotted me at the window, and ran to the door hoping to be let in. But first, I had something I needed to do without being trompled on by three boisterous and overly- affectionate dogs.
In my attempt to become more organized, thus saving myself the frustration and lost time spent searching for things, I bought two Alvin spin-o-trays. I can't tell you how excited I am about this- kind of pathetic, I know- but besides having three tiers of different sized holes with larger compartments on the bottom, it also spins around like a lazy susan. What could be cooler than that, right?
This means that not only can I see all my Derwent watercolor pencils, Inktense pencils, Graphitint pencils, scissors, knives, brushes and whatnot- I can reach them. And just look how nice and neat my drafting table looks now. I don't know if you're impressed, but I am.
To me, that's a good Saturday morning. Thanks for joining me. How did yours go?
