Spring Cleaning arrived early this year. Here is what I am working on. Clearing out the clutter in The Cabin of Curiosities and making room for a new jig saw, drill press, and kiln.

Handmade, natural soap blocks curing on the workbench.
Little ball of soft soap pushed into one of my original faces.
The book shelves. All of the open space on the bookshelves was full. I have already purged a couple of boxes of books. Notice the broken shelving. I may get new vshelving units or I may just mount brackets and boards onto the walls. I am not sure yet. All I know is, this has got to go! Absolutely unacceptable!!!!
Fabric stash (which has been cut down to about a fifth of what it once was!) Folding tables and repurposeable lumber in the corner. This is where the built in for the kilns, jig saw, and drill press will go.
Left side loft: luggage, seasonal linens, travel crates and cages for dogs birds and just about any other animal, pool toys, and camping gear.
Right side loft: holiday and seasonal decor, crystal, china, and other kitchenware that doesn't fit into my ridiculously small kitchen, and gift wrap.
Now this is where it gets really embarrasing but, apparently, that is the only thing that gets me off of my ass and makes me get it done! There are lots of empty boxes, bags of bubble wrap, boxes of paper "ephemera" and other fodder for mixed-media artwork. Some of it is going to have to go!!! Here is a clutter close-up of all of the mayhem!!!
I just want to point out that under all of that foolishnes there is a nine foot church pew, a futon matress, and a gazillion magazines, and jigsaw puzzles. It's totally not as bad as it looks, Really!!!! OK, I may be a little bit in denial but, I am getting better and you will hold me to it. I'll post my progress next week...................
