72 lines and shapes

72 goods

good-bye maine.... thank you for a good visit... and for all the memories all pics here

at the marine store
{there was an amazing marine store there - just look at this rope!}

this week it's framing, packing, shipping central at the studio. i dream of having a little shipping center - table - brown paper roll on the wall - boxes and bubble and labels and string all lined up, organized, and ready to go.... is that strange? maybe someday i will have my own little shipping area.

i also ran downstairs to jot down 5 words. last night just as i was falling asleep i had an epiphany. i think i know what i want to do next in the studio. time to research ... i love this part - when and idea just starts to take shape.... it feels exciting.

hope your mid-week is going well....

p/s i've really been enjoying everyone's thoughts on making and the disconnect.... thank you for sharing

I love to see other people's pictures of Maine - makes me stop taking my surroundings for granted. It gives me a new perspective to see it through the eyes of someone who doesn't live here.

So glad you shared your picts!

these photos are lovely. i adore the one of the hand and the red couch. and enjoy your new inspiration and the brand new impulses to follow. of course, i can't wait to watch it evolve!

those epiphanies are so so good... when you have to leap up out of bed to capture it because you just know you've hit something amazing. i can't wait to see what comes of it!
and maria is too cute! it looks like such a fun trip. NY definitely has to be next on the list :)

OMG I must know what the epiphany is! Eek! I can't wait! :)

And I dream of shipping centers as well. I have a nice little gift-wrapping closet that I just sit at and dream of all the different wrapping concoctions I can come up with. It's quite fun, really. :)

You know I don't think that's strange! I even get excited down shipping/packaging aisles in office supply stores! I love seeing a fresh box of 500 envelopes packed neatly. And the finished product of course, ready to go!

...I'm getting carried away :)

I'm enjoying these peeks into corners of Maria's studio. One day...

Looks like you had a brilliant stay. I can definitely understand the desire for a shipping area. I too dream of a little organised spot like that. xo lj
