I sure wish I could visit. I can smell the old mustiness and hear the floorboards creak.

Thank you for the tour. I really enjoyed looking at your photos.

You asked how I do so much in a day. I have a few secrets:
Not everything gets finished right away and I do little and often with several little projects on the go all the time.
I seldom plan what I am going to make and just make stuff with what is lying around.

I have thousands of bits and pieces lying around, so there is always inspiration available to set me off.

No constraints and trying new techniques is another reason why I do so much..., If I want to try something, I just have to do it there and then.
I do not go out to work everyday.. .and I have no commitments or resposibilities except to feed David and the cat.

Hope that helps to answer your question..

Have a great week.

I forgot to say....the melty stuff is household packaging. I used yoghurt pots, paper flowers and embossing powders and melted them down on a baking sheet on my electric cooker.

It gets very smelly and I fear the fumes coming off may be toxic, so I don't recommend it as a technique that anyone should follow. But when I see this stuff going out to recycling I feel the need to make things with it. The next plan is jewellery from the waste bin.
