Studio happenings

So what do I do in my studio?  About a year ago I wondered the same thing and so I created a Studio Happenings card.  On it I noted the Date, Time-in, Time-out and Activity...might seem a bit technical for an artist but I really wanted to know what my studio time looked like. I went into my studio as early as 6:00 am and as late as 9:00 pm, working anywhere from half an hour to six and a half hours. And what exactly did I do?  Well, everything from pouring plaster to create a mold for paper relief to preparing work for a show, but the thing that surprised me was how much time I spent cleaning up.  Hmmm...more time cleaning up than creating, so what was happening in my studio when I wasn't there?
