You know how you have those moments in your marriage when you just want to call it quits, split up all the assets and go your separate ways?
Yea that's what I'm doing.
In the office.
I'm taking my sewing space out of my bedroom (yes, I've been creating everything in my bedroom for the last 2 1/2 years!) and
taking over sharing space with my hubby in his office.
You may think I'm invading his "man cave" but he had actually been suggesting this since his master bedroom starting "looking like a sweat shop", as he put it.
And although our office doubles as a guest room with a pull out couch, I started seeing the possibilities of how it could be "my" creative space as well.
|So here's where we started...Hubby's desk in front of the window|
|Couch on wall opposite doorway, bookshelves lining wall opposite window|
|Now couch is opposite window with less bookshelves|
|And Hubby and I are sharing the window side of the room|
And I'm definitely hiding the college yearbook on his side. I don't think I bought that thing. I look stinking' hideous!!
I think the funniest thing so far is that I thought this room didn't have enough light for me to create.
Turns out hubby just never opened up the blinds!!!
Speaking of hubby, he kept trying to help me move furniture this weekend but I didn't want to subject him to my need to visualize and adjust. After today I realize I was really craving some symmetry. Sure they may have been better configurations-and we can always change it again-but I was digging this layout at first.
Hubby convinced me to let go of one bookcase right at the helm and I'm going to get a little drawer unit at Ikea sometime this week.
|Oh someone's gonna need to make something for over the couch. Hmmmm.....|
I also picked up some fabric memo boards and an old table-top ironing board at our church sale for a whopping $8! Yes they need recovering, but I think I got a little fabric tucked away somewhere around here...
|"White. A blank page or canvas...so many possibilities..."|
I'm starting to realize that I need to nurture my creativity like a little baby. I was always stuffing this baby in corners and trying to keep it quiet (unless I was on stage, which isn't happening much these days.) Well I'm trying to let baby grow. So baby needs to sleep in her own room!!!
Now to get that fabric baby out of my closet...[that baby is HUGE...]
How about you?
Have you honored yourself/your creativity
with your own little space?
Any fabric storage solutions ya got?
