I purchased a kit from The Pink Studio last year which included this Valentine heart box and little bubble window. I had lost it in my studio for quite a while. I found it about 5 months ago but still it sat right next to me. If you are an artist you will understand this. I just have to get in the mood or the spirit has to move me.
Back to yucky winter-I finally learned that when I'm feeling that feeling if I'll just go into my work room it immediately helps. Most times the first thing I need to do is clean at least enough to make room to 1) get in, and 2)get to make something. I have two desks but I always work on the floor. I'd love to have one of those huge, long tables in the middle of the room but I'm smart enough to realize how blessed I am to have a room dedicated to just my art that I'd never complain.
Once clean, I root around for inspiration. Right now is finishing things or starting things that are ready to go. Short story endless, that's what this was. A kit that I completely revamped with my own paper and vignette inside.
Lest you think I live a queen's life~I am resurfacing my family room floors tomorrow. Balance. Art~Work. Cook~Watch Glee. Laundry~Nap. I still want to earn my keep and be a productive citizen. And make pretty things.
