on the table mable

4_8_06 studio

i have a few projects in progress:

one of jess hutch's odd fellows
a little wee stuffie
a book using wood Formica samples

i start soo many projects that don't get completed.
i take a long time making & i am fickle.
does this seem judgmental?
maybe so.
i think about what i am to do with all this stuff i have accumulated.
does anyone want a corset or two?
i made 30 for my graduate project. you can't even wear them. it's art.
i have a bunch of girdles too.
sometimes i think about having a sale to see if i can move some things out.
what do people do with all the work they make?
i think it is a real dilemma when one is driven to make, but feels encumbered by stuff.
it's a love/hate relationship.

i hear you so much! i'm an animation student, and there's always the dillema of "what do i do with the hundreds and hundresa of individual drawings left after they were scanned in and put together on the computer?! yet, you can't let go... in a way, they're your kids. right?

i know what you mean... i have to continually reign myself in so that i don't have too many projects in progress! I'm trying desperately to be a "finisher"! Now, as to where to put everything? Let me know if you have any brilliant suggestions!

I love the idea of that little book made out for formica samples, it looks really original. Pick one unfinished project a month to complete, before you know it they will all be gone. For may I'm trying to complete a project that I stareted 3 years ago!!
