This is what my dining room table looks like when the daughter and I both get late night creative urges, and we are in a whirlwind of creation... I know, scary, isn't it?
My very best friend in the whole wide world is having a birthday this week, and I am working on a tiny scrapbook for her. The theme? RODEO NIGHTS, of course. Every year for her birthday, I purchase rodeo tickets for us; we go to dinner, head to the rodeo, get seated, "yeehaw" like lunatics, and have ourselves a right good time! This year, we will be heading out on Friday evening to participate in the fun. To celebrate this time in our lives, a traditon, I am creating this book for her. I have not felt so great during the last few weeks, so I have obviously waited until what feels like the last minute! Hence my creative fury.
The daughter's boyfriend is away at the moment, and she is missing him like crazy, so she's working on a scrapbook / journal that my innovative friend Natalie taught us how to fashion out of a composition notebook. It is really an amazingly simple thing that makes the finished book look so cool. I will post photos of both finished products as soon as they are done.
I must confess, seeing the dining room table (in the above photo) made my head spin a little bit when I arrived home from work several minutes ago. How can we possibly get any work done in that? We really are able to accomplish so much, but it would seem that productive work couldn't possibly happen there! LOL...
It made me wonder...what does your creative space look like? Are you messy when you create (as we certainly are) or are you completely organized and neat? What kind of space works best for you? I would love to hear your thoughts.
I hope the rest of your week is a fabulously creative one!
