I have just discovered that my studio came with rules; rules which I have been living by without knowing it. There are so many that I cannot list them all, but I thought I would list a sample of them – purely for entertainment value you understand.
· I can wear anything that I want with a few caveats. For example, if I get up one morning so enthusiastic about the project at hand that I delay putting on ‘real’ clothes; I will get a knock on my door from someone needing help.
· If I have no reason to put on presentable clothes because I will not be going out that day, I will inevitably run out of some vital component which will require going out anyway thus putting on presentable clothes anyway.
· If it involves glue, paint, glitter or anything not sewn, wear an apron. No item will be spilled, spewed or sprayed until the apron has been forgone or forgotten at which time my good clothes will have brand new embellishments that will look amazingly like glue, paint and glitter.
· I will always have more than enough supplies for any project about which I am not enthusiastic, but I will most likely run out of something essential for a project that I find exciting.
· If I had enough stuff for the last project, the odds are in my favor that no matter how much I have, it will not be enough for the next one.
· If the studio is clean, no one will visit. If it isn’t, someone will.
· If the desk is organized I will not be able to locate what I am looking for on it.
· If time stretches out before me like sand in the desert, it won’t matter. I still will not be able to finish everything on my list.
· If I am working on things for Halloween, it must be nearly Christmas.
These are apparently just a few of the rules. I did notice something though.
At the bottom of this extensive list in very tiny print, there is a disclaimer. It reads:
I know this is true. I’ve finished a kitty cat pin for Halloween and September has only just begun.
These are just a few rules from here. I am guessing you have discovered some of your own. Please feel free to share . . .
