I looked away from my finals long enough to notice something fun tonight! YAY for fun stuff! Mixed-media artist and blogger Seth Apter is hosting a sort of “stack-off” on his blog. Basically, he has admitted to being a “stackaholic” and has invited the rest of us to show off our stacks.
I consider myself a semi-pro stacker of things. I have rather embarrassing stacks all over my house. The dining room table is the resting place for all mail. The kitchen counter holds stacked dishes and could really use a good scrubbing. The couch has a rather sizable stack of laundry on it at the moment. Yes, I am behind on my chores again.
Because these are such embarrassing stacks and this is an art blog in response to an art blog I am not going beyond the stacks in my office/studio. Unfortunately I suffered a rather serious cleaning tantrum in here the other day. Ironically, this was because my kitty knocked a stack of papers off my desk. I do have a couple of new stacks started though… they aren’t nearly as glorious as their predecessors but they will have to do.
This is the stack of fairly important paper work that I have been putting off for a couple of weeks not. It is not very impressive, but a stack nonetheless.
Here is a much prettier stack. I was looking through my origami papers tonight in search of the pretty red, white, and black floral patterned pieces that I have been saving. I didn’t find them so they must be located in a different stack somewhere around this house.
I am not sure if these are technically stacks, but this is where I stack all the stuff that made the stacks on my desk when I clean up around here. The first pair of shelves is full of office supply type stuff and the second set is where I pile all of my sewing stuff.
These stacks aren’t even close to being as pretty or inspiring as the stacks Seth has posted and is sharing on his blog. Go have a look at his “Stackaholics Anonymous” post and join in the fun!
