Ok- so I'm going to go out on a limb here and bare my soul. Well, not really my soul... but the creative space that's at the core of my work. Really I'm just really really stuck with it. I've done a few things right with it, and have let some things get out of control, and simply don't have a good space to put a lot of it. Cleaning and organizing it is a daily to-do that I've yet to do.
Today other people's beautiful studios seemed to be haunting me. I did a little blog hopping before writing this post and ran into a few mentions and pics of other people's creative space and it just sort of reinforced the fact that mine is impossible as it is. It's actually become a storage space and not a work space at all. I can't usually find my desk and I really like a big open surface to spread out on while I work. So I cart things out of my studio and work on the dining room table or I work on the floor when it's clear enough. I'd like to be able to use my space again. I'd like to get a storage system of sorts for the closet. I'd like to use/move a lot of my supplies. I'd like to see my desk again. :)
So maybe that'll be my new year's resolution. Or my "do this before the new year" resolution. I'll let you know. :) In the meantime if you all have any tips or ideas that have worked well for you I'd love to hear it. I have my fabric nicely put away but all the extra stuff, like old t-shirts, old art, half done art, and memorabilia sort of get in the way of the rest of it. My mom keeps telling me I need a bigger room but space is at a premium here and unless I move out to the garage, I think I need to make do with what I have. So ideas are hugely welcome!!
