Looking For A Creative Space
Hello again Internet People! Well, I still have not made it back outside to do any work yet, and somehow I doubt today is going to be any different. I did almost finish the final Pansy for the "Monumental" basket, just a couple more crocuses to stitch and I will be ready to put the rest of the flowers into the basket.
I didn't do much drawing yesterday. I tried moving my work space into the living room last night so that I would have a more comfortable and stable work surface. Turns out all it did was give me more distractions (computer, TV, husband, etc.) so I didn't get anything done. I guess I will go back to using the drawing boards on my bed for now.
I have been trying to figure out a better place for me to create. For several months now I have been using our bed as my creative work space because it allows me the room to spread out without being in anyone else's way, and I have pretty good lighting. It works, but it is not very comfortable. I have tables and desks set up in several other rooms, but each one has its drawbacks and limitations. I just can't seem to find a space I am comfortable working in.
I have never had the luxury of being comfortable in my creative space, I just took whatever space was leftover after everyone else's needs were met. I have been crammed in corners and stacked on top of myself for as long as I can remember. Now that I finally do have the luxury of taking space for myself, I cannot find the right space to take. I will figure it out eventually, but for now I am still stuck on my bed, continuously fighting the urge to just take a nap.
Well, I am not going to get a damn thing done today if I keep sitting here staring at the computer screen all day so I better sign out of here and get busy. Until next time ...
