A Space to Create
I have had lots of different spots over the years where I have set aside space and time to create. Sometimes it was the living room table, sometimes a space in my bedroom, I have also rented large spaces - now I have the "Studio" which is our small converted garage.
And I do mean small :) We live in a wonderful Craftsman home in San Diego with the original garage just the right size for a Model T! The plus (aside from having a private space to create) is that the original garage doors are so cool! They swing open carriage style and are lovely!
I also use part of this creative space to ship my Etsy orders! Fun and functional! I feel lucky, in so many ways. But I have also worked hard to make sure that I have a life filled with creative time, people and events. I have a wonderful day job, working with excellent people - how cool is that. And when I come home - all this is still here, waiting for me.
If you can - set aside a space just for you. Make it your own with a few sacred objects, and a bowl of fresh flowers. Sing a song of praise each morning that there is another day to create exactly what your heart desires, another day to love.
