Prompt:An extra room has magically been added to your home overnight. The catch: if you add more than three items to it, it disappears. How do you use it?
We live in a mobile home now since downsizing the end of 2012, and space is utilized to the fullest ….. there isn’t any to spare. I know what I would use it for but I’m not sure about the fact only three items can be added to it.
I’d like to have a room to paint in now that I’ve taken on a new hobby. The way it is now, I have to put all the paints and everything on a t.v. table and in a drawer, and haul them out every time I want to paint, which is a bit of a nuisance.
Now, the stipulation is three items which is kind of tricky. But if I could count ‘all’ paint supplies as one item that would help. Then I really would need a table or easel to put the canvas on, and I guess the third thing would be a chair. I don’t paint standing up.
Downsizing has it’s good points but also some negative aspects. I used to do scrap booking before we moved but as I didn’t have room for all the supplies, I gave them away to someone who very much appreciated them. As I had done scrap books for all of our children and others close to me I thought I would not miss it. I did though, but have done more blogging since then instead..
This past April I decided to try my hand at painting, partly because some of the people I blog with do it and it just seemed interesting. Having lived the best part of my life without ever doing it, I thought that if I just experimented with supplies from the dollar store, I wouldn’t be out too much money if I didn’t enjoy it. However, I do very much like to try different things and while I will never be an expert at it, I just have fun.
So just to end this post, I’ll show you the latest two that I’ve done. I now have four birds (six if you count the ones I gave to my son and his wife)….. so I’m actually going to frame them and put them up, even if I don’t display any more. I did a blue jay and oriole before and now these two…… oh and I did another floral one too…
By the way, I realize I’ve been like a kid with a new toy, showing so many of these, but I promise in the future I won’t keep posting every one I do……also C.F. I am still practicing to see if I can do what you would like me too…. not sure I can but I’ll keep practicing…… Diane
