So the orders are caught up, the bead inventory is looking good. I have one big assignment that is due tomorrow. (the sketches to my first picture book!) So I'm starring down the rest of the week with 2 kids (4 extra hands) on spring break and thinking, it's time to update, clean out and redecorate my studio!
I don't know if I mentioned here, but when I went to NY, I won the Tomie dePaola Portfolio award at the winter conference for the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators. The prize was $1000 gift certificate to Dick Blick, which I have been happily spending. But all my supplies are in boxes, because I have no place to put them! And I have another shipment of goodies arriving tomorrow.
Clean out and sort
Rearrange furniture - 4 tables and 4 bookshelves
Create an environment that inspires me
Some inspiration for the task:
Teesha Moore - coolest art studio ever
A flickr group devoted to the cause
An ebook if you are totally lost
An article - organize your studio better
