Neat versus Messy: witness the different styles at the AAQ board meeting

I serve on the board of the Alliance for American Quilts.  I take this seriously.  I attend the meetings, both virtual and in real-time.  Somehow, my untidy work habits in my studio follow me around.
Witness the contrast of board member styles:
On the left side of the room, is Mark Dunn's table.  See?  He seems to conduct himself like a normal person:
an ipad and a few notes.  

Now, take a look at our side of the conference room.  Admittedly, this is not all mine.  Frances Holliday Alford may be making an even bigger mess than me, but we are equally responsible for this side of the room:
Frances, in the midst of the "stuff"

I was limited to a small pouch of postcards, my portable watercolors, and a few markers.  I was flying, and I only carry what will walk on the plane with me.   Frances came on the train.  Enough said.


  1. LOL. And she probably has a suitcase that a small child can travel in. A creative mess is better than tidy idleness. You Go Girls!

  2. Your comment made me laugh, and I REALLY needed to laugh!


I love to hear from my readers! Please drop me a line!
