I've spent the past week mulling over what my first creative steps should be. I took some photos on a walk, but quickly realized my motivation for doing so was only to make this blog more inviting and pretty (and although I do strive for an inviting and pretty blog, that's not why I've created it). I thought about making a crazy pair of tights to wear, but that didn't seem right, either. Suddenly, while showering a few mornings ago (I do my best thinking in that shower!) it hit me! How could I even think of exploring my creativity without a creative space?
So I've been working on turning my second guest bedroom into a creative oasis...my candlelit caravan. I've moved the twin bed into a corner, for naps and quiet musings, and I've taken the sewing machine out the closet where I can better access it. I'm planning on painting poems on the walls and hanging sari-print curtains in the windows!
I'll have to be very creative when decorating my nest, since funds are limited, but I've promised myself that only those items that I absolutely LOVE will be allowed. Oh, and fairy lights will most certainly be included.
Do you have a favorite creative space? And if so, what objects feather your nest? I'd love to hear how you make your sacred space...well, sacred!
Photos are forthcoming...so stay tuned.
