I Made This...but not lately

So, I sat last night staring at a pile of stuff covering my desk/workspace, boxes surrounding it and thought, "I have nothing to show...what the heck did I do for the past week?". And then I remembered...

Over the weekend I worked on editing over 125 photos, creating layouts, mosiacs and placing print orders. These went into gifts for my parents.  Happily, they will be shipped directly to Wisconsin so I won't have to worry about schlepping them with me on the plane. But, I cannot share them with you here until after the holidays.

Then there was this...

Heat was restored after 3+ weeks of inconsistency. And, this is huge, contractors have been in (and aren't finished) to fix a hole that has been in my ceiling for years.

While they were here, I also had them: close a window that has never closed in the 7+ years I've lived here, enclose the skylight, caulk holes around the baseboards, winterize the air conditioner, fix the leaky faucet, re-enamel the bath, and the have completely repainted the whole place. All of this was done while the BF supervised due to demands from my day job and, honestly, it would have stressed me out to no belief to watch. The BF also, moved my treasures ensuring no breakage. Oh, and Tucker made sure that all involved were content., happy and working hard. He also enjoyed the plastic that covered everything.

So, I am still unpacking, rehanging, tossing and putting my tiny little apartment back into working order. The BF leaves on Friday to visit his brother's family for the holidays so I will have 4 days alone and will need to keep busy...creating. Maybe I will finish a few of those projects that I have laying around.

This is if I can find them...

Have you checked out the other artists who are sharing their workdesks with you this Wednesday?
