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 ...
