Yay! Finally some good news! The ongoing apartment saga is finally over (for now-cue evil laughter). They installed the blinds today (as you can see above). The blind that's all the way to the left was too short, so the guy went out and bought one that's supposedly temporary (I'll believe it when I see them replace it). At this point, I don't care. I just want window coverings and them outta here so we can move on.
This has been ongoing for over a year now. They finally finished installing the HVAC and windows in February. We waited over two months for blinds. For the past 30 days, we often were waiting several hours every week (more than once a week) for the guy to install the blinds. You can read the transcription of the text messages here. They read like a play. It's nothing new from this company.
Anyways, now I can finally start to rearrange the living room/a.k.a. my art corner the way I want it to be! The little shelves that are right next to the window are going to be for my tiny little kid robot dunnys and toys that I have collected (I have always been a huge fan of tiny toys. I still have all of my little toys from when I was younger). I want to keep the stamp cabinet (for now). My bookcase is staying. There's a space between the cabinet and the bookcase that size wise is awkward. We can't move anything else so it has to stay like that. We've been looking for a bookcase or shelving unit to put there but it's just an odd size space and I don't have a lot of money to shell out for a unit at the moment. We'll figure something out and when I finish arranging it, I'll post it here so you can see where I make my art and how I store my stuff.
FYI, my class at Zinnia this Friday is a definite GO! I'll be there from 11:30-3:30 teaching my Pen Work class (think collage + pen work + mixed media techniques). I love this class and seeing how my students translate it! Fun!!!
Today is a big day in history. Lots of things on my mind today. Am remembering:
The Haymarket Affair 125 years ago today.
First Freedom Ride 50 years ago today.
Kent State Massacre 40 years ago today.
