Endless chaos of the cluttered mind

The past few years have been really all-around crazy for me in every sense of the word. At times I feel that my head is akin to that drawer so many of us have that is just jam-packed with all types of junk imaginable, tossed in there because you just don't know where to put it.

If at least there was room in there for thoughts to ferment long enough to reach maturation, then to be released leaving space for the next thought or idea to develop...Alas, creative ideas just get thrown in with worries, useless thoughts, memories (both good and bad), plans and projects, lists of things I want to do, I could do, I should do...Every day the drawer gets harder and harder to close.

Ever the optimist, I keep trying to put order. The first thing I need to do is to take stalk of what is in there and focus on one area at a time:


3 Hearts



An assortment of Carniverous plants:


Five Heads:





This is just at first glance...Clearly, the time has come for some serious spring cleaning!

Curio Studio is where my creative side can really come out to play. It is where the interesting, the unusual and the creative come together. Nothing has to conform and nothing is judged. Sadly, it has been enduring a serious drought as the mundane has pushed it to the back of the drawer. The struggle for a drawer of it's own is evident...Hence this blog, hence yesterday's post and today's inventory of what you can find there. (Some, to my dismay, covered in cobwebs!)

You may be wondering who is keeping Curio at the back of the drawer...I know exactly who she is. Her name is Sonia, Curio's alter ego...No wait a minute, Curio is Sonia's alter ego...No wait, they're so different they can't possibly be occupying the same head-space! One thing I do know, Sonia is getting stronger and now she wants a blog of her own. We'll see who gets the upper hand!

what would happen if the drawers were all left open? Who would emerge - Curio or Sonia?!
in all seriousness, I can really relate to the spring cleaning need though. Since half my studio is scattered across my bedroom from my recuperation period, I've been slowly trying to bring it back into my true work space, and somehow it doesn't seem to fit anymore! One drawer at a time, eh?!

Karin, if the drawers were all left open, only Curio could survive. Sonia would be putting everything in order and have the place neat as a pin or she would just leave!

I've mentioned on my blog that I have a quote on my noticeboard...."Nothing happens untill it moves" - Einstein.
Just begin and see what happens. I love the heads in this post. They remind me of bleached bones.Wonderful features!
