These are actual, current pictures of my "studio". We moved in to this house over a month ago and I can't seem to find the time to get down to this room and get everything put somewhere. I'm really trying to go through all the boxes we've had in storage and get rid of as many things as possible. That, and the daily needs of the other 4 people who live in my house have really put a hamper on getting this project done.
I recently checked out a book from the library "Where Women Create"
This is are really neat look at well know artists, quilters, etc and their studio space. There is a quote in the book that really hit home with me:
"It is both rejuvenating and inspiring to have a special place where I don't have to explain myself, accommodate others, or accomplish something - where I can just lose myself ...making something with my hands."
I really miss my own space and can't wait to have this done. My wonderful friend Kelley is home this week from college and is supposed to come over and watch the munchkins for me so I can get some work done, but it's a blizzard out right now, so I don't know if she'll be able to make it over or not.
Oh, here's what the room outside my studio looks like, which is what I have to get done first before I can get the studio done.I realize how incredibly lucky I am to have found a house where I have my own space. I'm really ready to be able to use it.
