wow But is it art?
I am learning to be creative but is it art? Probably not; what it is, is a mess!
My work table is often a mess when I'm in the throes of creativity. This is my workspace this week.
I am stretching my creative abilities.
I am limited by space- 600 square feet
I am limited by time- 30 days
I am limited by budget- egg money
I am limited by resources- 2 chicks and a part time rooster
I am limited by my ability but not by my vision- no formal training
I can add storage by getting the Rooster to build a pantry in the basement and by placing and adapting an over the toilet cabinet alongside the fridge. I can re figure the furniture layout. With just about everything primed we are beginning to see the end. Brown has become white and I'm making mid course corrections as I go. Timely sales and the thrift shop have been very handy. I slept over one night but those were very long days and I wonder if you gain when you push too hard. But I did have time to experiment and say, "what if...". Saturday will be a big push with the Rooster.
I think if you push creativity in every area- food, decorating, writing, sewing, crafting, budgeting, etc; you will be enhancing your art at the same time.
