Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Or, as we called it down the pub, "Amateur Night."  ;)

Little Upgrade = BIG Help!

Tools.

Potter's tools. Sculpting tools. Everywhere! All over the studio.

Always in the way of something else.

I've had the idea of getting them organized for a long time, but the actual doing it hadn't come to pass. Until now!

I had some pegboard hanging around since we moved into this house, ten years ago. The previous owners had left it, and I wasn't about to throw it away, so...

Yes, I can be a pack rat. Let's not go there, o.k.?
I had hubby replace the brackets I had there already with longer ones, and then we attached the pegboard. I have a ton of the doohickeys you use for pegboard, lurking around in a giant Ziploc baggie in one of the garage drawers (also from roughly ten years ago), so it was just a matter of digging through them and figuring out what layout was going to work out.
It gave me the opportunity to see which tools I had and how many, so I don't end up buying more of the ones I already have. I love that they're all in view, in easy reach, and organized!
I'm a bit bummed that I had to ditch my Trick 'R Treat movie poster. I've had it in the studio for a long time, and I need to find another place for it. I'm running out of wall space!

For those of you wondering, those lovely, hand-made wooden tools are from Burlchaser's Etsy shop. They're spectacular to work with and inspiring to look at!

Light Reading

Been haunted by my demons recently, so that's why no posts for a little while. Back soon! :)
