The Second Annual Shame-A-Thon

Hey kids!  iIt’s time for the second annual Studio Shame-A-Thon! Here’s how it works: I’m posting pictures of the current state of disaster in the Fobotorium, and in 24 hours, I will have to post pictures of it all cleaned up and organized or be FOREVER SHAMED.

A few tips if you want to conduct your own Shame-A-Thon:

1. Do it on a dreary, rainy, cold day, so you won’t have all of Mother nature distracting you. CHECK.

2. Get a good recorded book to listen to to make the time past more quickly. “The Paris Wife” by Paula McLain, about Hemingway and his first wife during the Paris years. CHECK.

3. Have an even worse task in mind that you really should be doing, so that this will seem like fun in comparison. Deciphering all the mailing list names and email addresses from the last two shows and entering them into the database. CHECK.

If you don’t hear from me by noon tomorrow, send out a search party, ’cause I’m buried under an avalanche of junk. Oh, and don’t let the patches of bare wood floor fool you–the wide angle lens makes them seem bigger than they are.MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

    Amy—your studio isn’t THAT bad….creativity can’t be neat and tidy!!! Hah! Good luck cleaning….is this an annual Shame-A-Thon, or is it a Guilt-A-Thon….cuz, now I feel the need to go and clean up the huge mess in my studio!!! A blizzard is coming my way, so I know where I’ll be for the next couple of days….sorting, cleaning, and then creating! Enjoy your audio book, I’ll be listening to my “oldies” station on the radio—geez, I hope we don’t lose power…….

    I’m doing the same thing…so much junk, so little time!!
    My book on tape is fired up, I’ve got the trash barrel nearby and the coffee is on!
    Trouble is, it’s a beautiful day and I’m soooo easily distracted.
    But, I’m taking pages from your playbook—think of the things I don’t want to do, etc….(it works sometimes…).
    Thanks for this, Amy!
    I feel so much better knowing I’m not alone!

    Yay for you for getting so much done today. Since we’ve been home, I’ve been flat on my back with a sinus migraine and back spasms. I’ll report my shop-of-shame tomorrow!
