Yesterday afternoon I sat down to work in my studio and it was truly such a mess that all I could think about was cleaning it. Maybe what I was really doing was procrastinating but it was a successful procrastination because I finally cleaned and organized a closet that has been a catch all for odds and ends since day one.
Today I finished up cleaning and organizing and even took a picture to prove it. This is seriously possibly the world's dumbest picture. It is a vacuum hose sucking up a star. It is blurry because my hand was shaking. The carpet in my studio is atrocious. I will definitely not be winning styling points for this one!
This afternoon I took a much needed break and caught up with a dear friend. I made tea and she made yummy delicious kind of healthy peanut butter chocolate chip grain free cookies. We talked and talked and I felt much more motivated to work hard and keep at it in the studio. Despite the lovely visit I would also like to point out what a horrible photographer I am! In my mind I thought I was taking this gorgeous shot of us sitting outside on a breezy summer day. The cookies and tea seemed like a beautiful snack. If I described this moment to you you probably weren't picturing an overturned chair in the background and what the bag the cookies came in looked like. In a perfect picture the cookies would be arranged on a pretty vintage plate and there would not be a discarded popsicle stick on the table. I might even have shoes on.
I know I am showing real life but I really do want to be one of those people who only eats pretty food on pretty plates. I want to be someone who is not too lazy to pick up an overturned chair. I want a table that has been spray painted gold and does not have random price tag stickers from something else stuck to the tabletop. Kudos to Bryanne for her pretty sandals adding a touch of class to this pic!
I recognize that these are not real problems but a girl can dream, right?
