Spring has sprung indeed ,

Hi everybody (or anybody , as the case may be) , I've been slacking on the blog posts lately and thought I'd at least drop in and say hello.

I've been working on cleaning and organizing the kitchen studio. The house too , but who cares 'bout THAT lol. It takes me a while to gear up for the kitchen , to be honest. Just the thought of moving everything made me tired , but I did - I also found new storage at fab prices , and that's made a huge difference! I'm funny - I'll spend the money on supplies , but I balk at paying for plastic storage drawers lol. I don't like them to begin with , I think they're priced too high and though I did try - every time I put one in the cart I wound up putting it right back on the shelf shortly thereafter. I finally hit a sale (and the thrift) and got two more sets of drawers that were not only reasonably priced but would function WELL. That was my other peeve - I didn't want to buy storage that I'd still be "making do" with. I've got all kinds of weird stuff here , I could do that for free lol.

I have taken a few pictures in a responsible blogger sort of way and I'll load them up in the next few days so you can see what I've been up to. Don't know how exciting that is for y'all really , but hey - maybe you'll get a brilliant idea or be inspired to burrow through your own supplies and detritus in search of the table you're sure you had at Some point but you've been working on the counter for months (which is ok , you actually like that more) but anyway the table could be GONE for all you know because really all you can see is one leg. Which could be from a thrift store and not really belong to the table at all. Think about it.

So I did that , and now I'm working on unmounting all the rubber. If any of you have been thinking about doing the same thing , but have been procratinating as I have - you know what? Go with that. You think it's going to be a tedious job now , wait until you get started. It all goes downhill from there. I'm indexing and unmounting at the same time , and it really is just a long haul , girls. But I will say that the space I'm gaining is very nice , and it is totally worth it. I do love the sight of an empty drawer , lol - it's just not fun. But it's worth it , lol.

I'll tell you more about how I did my unmounting when I come back - hope the rest of you cleaning and organizing will post a few pics too , since this spring fever seems to visiting the studios of several of my friends! I love that I'm not the only one suffering through this lol. It really does feel awesome when it's done , doesn't it?!
