on a treasure hunt for

A little over a year ago, in May, we had a fire in our house. As I liked to say ~ small fire, big smoke damage. The long and short of it was that we were very fortunate to not be hurt and really not very much was damaged. However we had to clean out nearly the whole house because of smoke damage. Sigh. It took a few months but we got back to our normal lives and were laughing about it. Fortunately the small room where my art supplies were housed was not damaged in any way. Unfortunately that one tiny room was used mostly on and, very occasionally, off for storage of many, many other items as we tried to sort through boxes and boxes of belongings. Our whole basement has seemed like a gathering place for a plethora of art supplies. the floor in my small studio space AND in the main gathering area left barely an inch or two through which to move.

I have tried to do art regardless, but I came to realize I was not being nearly as creative as I could have been. I was on a treasure hunt:

"a space for myself"

Now after many weeks, perhaps months, of concentrated effort, amidst other family challenges, huge grin, I am finally at a stage where I can move quite freely in my studio and have claimed a large part of the main gathering area as well.

After a bit more paper sorting and re-arranging, I will finally be able to shout out ~ I have found treasure.

Angels be with you dear friends.
