An e-mail arrived this morning from Donna Weibel that makes me feel much better -- she plans her creative mess ahead of time! Donna teaches classes in our store and is one of the most organized people I know. Lately she has been hooked on Tim Holtz tag projects -- last month she went to Phoenix for the second time to Tim's Creative Escape. And there is an earlier post on this blog about how much goes into the preparation for her classes (http://marcopaper.blogspot.com/2009/05/class-prep.html).
These are the finished products that Donna has been teaching recently -- next week starts her second installment of Tim Holtz Christmas Tags. Neat stuff! But Donna also sent me some shots of her studio after she finished creating. It's a trip back behind the curtain. I love her description -- "like a craft bomb detonated in there."
And then the finished products go into Ziploc bags and plastic containers, ready for the trip to our store. Donna says she has to be able to "see" everything to know what to put where, and she really does know what's under each pile. Takes a couple of days to reorganize once the job is done.
I understand completely, and I feel much better . . .
