state of flux
|the Dwelling - doors closed|
Anyway, coming to the point, in short: got fired, last job ended December 2017, entered UnemploymentBenefit-land, the weirdest of bureaucratic worlds, discovered I don't do forms well, got caught in catch22 loops; thought I had decided to take time off and rediscover the full-time working experience of the Studio, seriously started tidying up the Studio, continued in the Dwelling, still could not stop, started helping my parents, then a friend of theirs...and then my light-bulb moment......
THIS is what I do pretty well & I enjoy it, and there are folks out there willing to pay for my services
What it boils down to is this: I want to start my own small business (still need a name in Dutch!)the business being 'tidying up your house, be it one room, the entire house from attic-to-cellar, hereby bringing order to your kitchen/bedroom closet/mind, whatever you feel needs decluttering'
The Dwelling now looks like this, not quite finished as I think I want to add paintings on the front, when the doors are closed and a few items have been added since I took these photos:
|the violin playing hippo and grey mouse also wandered in from E's house; as you can see the musical performance is much appreciated by all who have gathered together in the Celebration Room; OBK is delighted to make their acquaintance|
|shelves in the large kitchen|
a fine idea! Wish you were closer to Virginia, USA...I'd hire you.
how sweet of you Tina! and I love this rentadaughter concept, I sense it runs along the same idea I have in mind....maybe I could use this thought-thread for my company name
thanks Dana, I am elated, truth be told, this was the kick-in-the-ass I needed
and love the dwelling...seeing all the familiar is a comfort
no need to be sorry Sue, I am very happy it all happened as it did; how lovely it would be for the small critters to get in touch with one another, ha!
Other than that...I'm speechless at seeing the dwelling. So many feelings come up. I've been here at least 3 times looking long at each picture. Seeing DOG in his new home warms my heart like no other. My fondness for DOG is so strong :) I'm glad he is among friends.
the Dwelling inhabitants are slowly but surely settling back into the refurbished surroundings, change can at times be awkward, however they have decided to embrace it & come to realise that that is sometimes what happens in my Studio......
lots of unfolding going on Jude, on so many levels; life is overwhelming, in a very good way these days, sending love back to you too
