a commitment...

i've joined a facebook group to go through this 12 week workbook...the artist's way...as already mentioned, i have no studio in which to do art...so i must do what i can (i've been going slightly crazy not being creative daily)...but i can find a way...drawing is not my strong suit but i can work on becoming a better one, plan out my sewing projects, writing the requisite "morning pages" from this book...


i have a creative writing degree...haven't written is quite a long time....blog aside...

now, this book has been around since the early 90s...i once thought about doing the lessons....now is the time to plumb the depths...there are many ways to be creative...

this is my current fave mag...where women create lets me see how others make a space for their art...studios, stores, homes...i can dream of my attic space one day going from a dusty, wall paper falling off the walls room to a reflection of me...how do you make space for your creativity?

I love seeing others amazing work areas. It has been a focus of mine this month and next to create beautiful areas of play for myself and the kids. I am trying to take each day, and really each month, to create one beautiful thing. Sometimes that is just a beautiful authentic smile each day;)

Love to ogle other art spaces myself! I've been super focused on getting all of my stuff into one space instead of half a dozen. I've got my eye on Evan's room.
