Top of the bookcase a few hand carved farm animals from (eastern) Germany, standing on a glass box of trinkets.
First shelf with smaller journals, and a few vintage ink pens.
Second shelf with some small paintings, which will probably be removed to make space for more journals!
Bottom shelf with stacked journals too tall to stand up right.
Open top drawer – nice and neat and room for more!
Open second drawer – paper stack – room for more!
Bottom drawer – filled – but I know where all the sketch books and blank paper is now!
Seth Apter http://thealteredpage.blogspot.com/ had a fun idea of everyone posting a photo of their paper stack on their blog today! We all love paper and it isn’t easy to find places to store it all, so it sometimes stacks up! Here is my stack, which includes journals, sketch books and other paper I can’t part with. Looking at it now I think I need to find an organized system to store most of this stuff!
Here you can see some of the backs of journals wedged into the paper stack.
Some discarded book bindings – I do plan to use them, eventually, no, really!
Top of the stack, current journal with yardstick in the background – measuring 23 inches tall – that’s way too much disorganization for me! I am painting an old dresser as we speak to put this stuff, the dust bunnies love, away!
Newly painted drawers for the paper stack! !
Very square and plain – but now its pretty turqoise – not as blue as it looks in the photos.
Once I started painting, I couldn’t quit! I kept looking for more things to paint. A couple of stars, a couple of chairs and..
a small thrift store bookcase to go on top of the newly painted chest! I used two colors for this piece! Lots of new storage now! Thanks, Seth, I needed a push to get this done! And thanks for always coming up with new ideas for us art bloggers!
