This is the state of my desk most days. I’m embarrassed to show it, but here it is. In my defense, I used to have a whole room devoted to the projects that I like to work on, and now that I no longer have it (enter cute baby), I realize how much I miss it. It’s hard to stop and start and get much of anything done, and I’ve found the set up and take down sometimes don’t always happen. Probably because the making part is much more fun, and probably because the making happens right up until the very last second of free moments that I have, leaving no time for the clean up. I found myself with one hour of time this afternoon, and this is what I had in front of me. So I made a wise decision and took fifteen seconds to lift it all off the desk and onto the bed. I’ll tackle it later when I’m forced to – you know, when I decide I’d actually like to lie down in that bed.
In that hour this is what I did. Finished off the civic building with a nice, fancy dome.
The bottom section was looking too gray (although I love those dimensional stairs!) so I added some planters and then some bunting. Because nothing says “civic” like bunting.
Here’s the city as it’s shaping up. That unwrapped canvas will be the top section of the residential building. Check back later tonight for that.
Hour’s up! (And so is that baby!)
