I might have mentioned that I'm a little OC, Obsessive-Compulsive. Well, I am, so I might as well admit it!
I turned my OC eye to my studio Saturday and realized there was a better way to keep my collection of images for transfers than I was utilizing, so I set about organizing them. I went out and bought some of those pretty Martha Stewart-ish looking photo boxes, you know the ones with the index card dividers with the alphabet on them, and some 3x5 plastic bags. Then I started sorting. Okay, so I get to BIRDS. Hmmm, I've got probably 500 bird images, but putting them altogether wouldn't help when I needed one yellow bird in a hurry. So I decided to subgroup them into colors. Hmmm. That worked until I got to BROWN BIRDS. I did not realize I had so many Brown bird images. So then I decided to group them by BIRD NAME. Hmmm. Then I had to get the encyclopedia out, because my internet connection was on the fritz due to a thunderstorm Saturday morning. Well, it turns out that as smart as I think I am, I do not know my robins from my orioles. Hmmm. So I decided, 3 hours after my initial foray into organizing the images, to just put all 'dem BIRDS back in one bag under "B". Lord knows my OC self would have had a conniption fit by the time I got to FLOWERS. Shudder.
By Saturday night, still no internet connection (how do people live without it?), so I sanded and buffed some pieces I cured Thursday night for our weekly PCAGOE Clay and Play night. Notice there is only one bird pendant. I think that is a Robin, or is it an Oriole?
