How does this always happen to my studio over the year? This year I only had two quarters for it to get like this after my sabbatical finished in December.

I spent a couple mornings this week starting the tedious process of reclaiming floor and shelf space. I bought a new set of metal shelves for the semi-outdoor storage area next to my studio. I plan to move the bike parts or maybe some work out there to ease up space constraints inside. But perhaps I should just plan to price my work really low at June Art Fest to make more room in the studio.

While sorting, I started getting excited about how many gears and pedals parts I have in the boxes. Last summer I made a bunch of pieces with gears and I needed more options for sizes. I was also happy with one of the last pieces I build using pedals and wouldn't mind making another with similar parts.
Last year I ran into a bit of trouble near the end having enough options for metal parts or sizes. I now appear to have filled out my tiny parts collection and I have quite a few new pieces that I will have to investigate further to figure out how to use or take apart.
