I can't believe I am posting this photo, (Mom, don't look!) but I am thinking that public shame will be good motivation for cleaning.
For a year or so, I shared a great big studio in Detroit with a few friends, but since the weather and roads were often bad and Detroit is 40 miles away I also set up a space in the basement.
Since moving into our studio here in Ann Arbor last year (only 1 mile away:) ), the basement studio has become the place where stuff we don't know what to do with goes to die.
Today I am cleaning it out. wish me luck!
