My basement/studio/workspace is very messy. It’s been a bit overwhelming. I find myself leaving and going for walks or bicycle rides just to get some courage to face up to it all and, hopefully, make some sort of plan. I find the walks do help; I often sort things out and come up with solutions for the mess when I’m out wandering. Partly it’s messy because I’m resorting and reorganizing and partly it’s messy because I just took part in a street fair and partly it’s messy because I’ve been buying more supplies.
Slowly I’m making progress.
But celebrate the little things right?
I managed to create a work station for “resining” the keys. I bought this little workbench from my neighbour’s garage sale:
And I emptied some of the boxes (now neatly stacked beside the workbench) into some cool new bins I bought on sale (well 2 for 1) that are on the bottom of this display rack (that I bought at a garage sale at the beginning of the summer):
So this part of the room is starting to look better.
And so is my worktable:
I’m pretty excited to be able to see the top of the table again!
But don’t be fooled. The display rack and table are really looking good because I moved everything to the floor and another part of the room so I can sort through it:
In and amongst all this basement and buying and street fair activity I made some more keys:
Going for walks is a lovely way to spend time and sort things out. Last night I didn’t go for a walk. I made some keys instead (even though the surrounding mess is annoying and disconcerting).
An even lovelier way to lose time and feel peace.
