Testing, Testing......

Somewhere between my last post and what seemed to be only yesterday, a whole week has escaped from me. This is not good considering it is only the second week of the year! My intention of showing you my newly decluttered benchtops has not come to fruition - mainly because I got sidetracked.

I know, I know, cleaning is such a satisfying task. It's hard to imagine that anything could divert your attention away from it.... right?

Did I just say satisfying? What I should have said was "challenging". I find it very difficult to keep on track when it comes to cleaning. In my last post, I told you about the standing joke in my family regarding my cleaning efforts. Their comments are truly justified.

But just what was I thinking when I started the New Year by cleaning up my studio? I'm sure you've heard the superstition that says whatever you do on the first day of the year you will keep doing all year long. Well I certainly don't plan to be cleaning the studio all year long. However, what I did next is something that I wouldn't mind doing all year..... I started playing with resin!

Have I ever told you how addictive working with resin is? If I haven't, let me shout it out....... WORKING WITH RESIN IS VERY ADDICTIVE!!! Once you start, you just don't want to stop. The pic above is testament to that.

To justify my lack of staying power in the clean up stakes, I keep telling myself that it really was necessary to play this much - after all, I WAS testing a new resin and I needed to see how well it would perform!

So those cluttered benchtops will have to wait for another day, maybe even another month but heaven help me, may it not be another year.

'Til next time......
