What I learned this summer!
Seth Apter is a friend to the creative community. I so enjoy his blog, The Altered Page. He reposted a popular post and it is called The Studio Table. There are 123 links to artist's work spaces. At about the 100th link I finally 'GOT IT'. Creativity is not really a neat process. :O My fixation with having a photo ready site for blog posts is killing me creatively.
Vicki, at Field Trips in Fiber hosted a Real Studio Tour. I participated and revealed my sewing space.here, here, and here , But don't think I was convinced and I don't think I was honest in that I was influenced by the fact that this was going to be a photo op for the blog. But the biggest factor is that because I spend more time organizing than creating and I am one frustrated gal. :O
I am not a neat freak because I can live happily with shutting messy drawers and pressing overflowing closets closed. But there is a point where counter clutter and table turmoil gets to me.
But I still can't quite bring myself to publish ugly. vbsigh So I'll be taking photos on the clutter free dining room table. lol And I'll be trying to be more creative while trying to ignore my regular ugly clutter. I will clear things from the edges because I need at least a two foot square working area. I will put big objects in front of avalanching piles, shut doors and close as many drawers as I can because sometimes they become level surfaces! :(
Perhaps when I'm expecting company I'll make a Do Not Disturb sign because after all, I'm an artist at work! ;^)
