Vacation Inertia

Ugh...I need the inspiration fairy to strike.

I got back from vacation days ago and I can't seem to get anything done. My butt is glued to my office seat and although my studio is alluring, I have no clear plan once I go in there. I feel easily distracted and uninspired, which is exactly the opposite of how I was hoping that I would feel after a jaunt away from home.

I did go tag sale-ing on Saturday and picked up a few fun items that I might incorporate into my work, including these odd little curio boxes from the 60's. They were obviously made for the decorative market, because when I started dissecting them I discovered that several of the pieces were assembled directly on the fabric backing with some black brittle resin type stuff. I am hoping that I can grind that crap off with my dremel. There were bits of newspaper stuck in behind some of them for filler and they were obviously Russian...which adds a bit of mystery to their production. They say that they were made in New York, so I am guessing in some drafty 5th floor walk up tenement in Brighton Beach.

Alright...enough talk, time to walk the walk...gotta get my butt into the studio and see what gets made.
