I have a show coming up in 10 days. The fact of the matter is that this is the state of affairs.
I promise that the rest of my house is much cleaner. REALLY! My polymer clay work area is much cleaner and comparatively boring. But this is the "put it all together" table and so things get a little out of control. I will eventually get to the point that the mayhem starts making me cranky (like when you've over mixed paint and have ended up with some sort of muddy grey/brown) and my husband will say "clean your work table - you'll feel better".
Order is actually coming from chaos at this point and I am producing a steady stream of finished pieces, hoping not to pull an all-nighter before the show.
