Cleaning Up Other People's Mess

Do you ever feel like you have difficulty being creative when your life feels cluttered? How about when your home is messy? I definitely have this 'syndrome' that says if there are tasks to be done, they start to build a barrier between me and my art. I am most happy when everything is clean and taken care of, and my unusual work hours and resulting insomnia don't exactly enable efficiency towards that end. Sometimes other people make a mess for me to clean, whether because they are mean, angry, or just thoughtless, there's no one else to take the task. This type of situation has been slowing me down a lot, lately, but I intend to tackle it to the ground.

The photos above are of local graffiti (I sell a print of one of the pairs of legs in my shop, taken months before these) which was subsequently defaced over and over. Someone finally painted the wall around the girls, but eventually the desecration became overwhelming. The wall is plain, now.

Giveaway: 3 Octpuplets

It's time to giveaway! Three winners will take home their favorite Octpuplet. You can see Dog 5 through Dog 8 here, and Dogs 1-4 in my previous post. All you have to do to enter is comment here and tell me which one is your favorite. To be clear. This includes your top choice out of all 8 dogs.... (1-4 in my previous post as well as dogs 5-8 in this post!) I'll draw three names on my birthday, February 12th.
(note: click on the photos to get a better view, sorry for the size, the photo does not do them justice.)

YAY! We have 3 winners. All were informed, and they are chickscratch, Karo Design, and demmi. Congratulations to all, and to the rest I am sure I will do more giveaways so stick around and visit often.
