Today I finally had enough things on my “Get from studio” list that I decided to make a trip over there and pick them up. I had 6 or 8 things listed and as I entered the building it seemed like it had been forever since I had descended those stairs and keyed into the coded doors. I passed by the items on my outer wall, “Hello old friends”,
I had forgotten who I left here. I almost felt I had come to visit them. Sad. Then I went inside, got out my list and began wandering around finding the items I needed. As I walked around, I looked at other things, supplies & such and suddenly felt like I had entered a ‘previous life’ space. It was weird! I have been bingeing a TV show called Timeless lately and I suppose the premise of time travel was in the back of my mind, but it just felt like a space I had previously occupied and I was picking up things to bring to the ‘present’. I guess, in a way, that IS what I was doing. Go figure.
As I passed the table near the door, I spied some of my alcohol ink coaster sets. I had sold a few of these on prior “1st Fridays” but they weren’t going anywhere sitting here. So I decided to take a few pictures of them and maybe post them on Facebook or my website, or even here.
They are beautiful, if I do say so myself. Sealed and varnished with shiny coats, ready to go to their ‘forever homes’. Do let me know if you are interested. Email me here.
I also brought some of my blank (inside) Note Cards that were just sitting there all alone on my card rack. No one is buying them since no one can come in!… So I brought a few home, took pictures and if you are interested they are $5 ea or 6 cards for $25 – Just email me and tell me which you would like. I can porch drop off locally (Peoria area) or mail them if not local. Credit Cards, PayPal and checks accepted.
It was a bittersweet visit, but I wanted to keep it short. So I finished gathering and headed out… out to get some lunch at a local hot dog place and go sit with my husband overlooking the Illinois river from our car.
