When I think about how different my world is from just a year ago, it brings tears to my eyes, it really does. I had moved into a rental home in 2006 after my fire and although it was good for the price and suited our immediate needs, it was run down and pretty ricketedy no doubt. I really hated anyone to even come over to be truthful, I was a bit embarrassed by it. However, any roof over one's head is better than no roof and I was very glad to have a place to live, especially after everything I had gone through.
I had an extra bedroom which started off as my studio, but as my supplies grew with my passion for creating, I used the bedroom for storage and my dining room to create in and any nook or cranny I could find for additional storage. You know what? I did just fine creating in my dining room. The fact I didn't have a dedicated studio space in no way hampered my ability to create. In fact, I did pretty darn well in that dining room if I do say so my self.
Whatever you do...just do it....just do it wherever. That said, I'm grateful, joyous, and proud of where I'm at right now. I'll never forget where I've been though and the road I've taken to get here. I'm really excited about where it's all going.
Please do pick up this issue of Studios and visit my space and all of our other Art Sisters!
Let me know what you think--the one thing I do have to say though about the space, it's still a work in progress. A friend told me that a studio isn't set up, it's grown into. So true.
Have a creative week!
