admitting you have a problem...


...is the first step to recovery.
I'm a collector,
potential-finder,
treasure keeper,
and maybe,
maybe,
a little bit of a
hoarder.
there.
I said it.
my mom and I have taken on the gigantic task of cleaning the shop.
the shop is our shared space of creating things.
mom did upholstery out there for 25 years, then I moved my LilyWhite sewing goods into the midst of it last year.
So now, the shop is a complete dirty, spider webby mess of fabric, sewing machines, tractor seats, and couches.
(and an allergy factory)

but we're working on it. little by little. The shop is slowly becoming a more culturally acceptable place, and my mom and I are slowly learning to part with things.
