This morning I have been slowly attempting to file all of my photos into their appropriate database categories. Like any mixed media artist, sometimes deleting photos is much the same as tossing out that last little scrap of fabric or bit of ephemera....I don't... Also, when I am snapping a photo of a project, I end up getting a little trigger happy and consequently snap a few more.... usually just of what's around me at the time. This is the danger of the digital world...and also the gift of digital photography. I've wondered how many award winning photos weren't taken in the pre-digital world because the photographer couldn't afford to process them in the lab.
Here's a few of 'those snapshots' - mostly of a room I've begun to convert into a part sewing studio, part library. I recently learned Bea names the rooms in her house - romantic names.... like The Tangerine Sky Room so I've been considering what to name this room. Bedlum was the first moniker that came to mind...but I'm still brainstorming.
The above shot was one of my musing baskets. When I start to work on a project, I grab a basket and rummage through all of my different bits of ephemera that 'may' work in it. It's all part of my creative process - and one that I always look forward to - that of generating ideas and possibilities.
The little butterflies were a birthday present from my daughter Jillian last year. They are hooks, but as you can see, I haven't hung them - I would need a very large large house to hang everything I'd like to hang.
