my creative space

I love this meme from Kirsty at Kootoyoo. i find it really interesting to see the spaces people create in. one of the things that strikes me is that it seems everyone else's spaces are so neat. mine tend to be less so - i have two creative spaces to share today, and they are anything but... the great thing is that now that i have my art space back, i can mess it all up by making things. but even though i have the space to myself now, i still find that often my creative space is in our lounge room - floor based, like on monday while i was making the tea cosy posted below.
pop on over to kootoyoo to be inspired by other people's neat creative spaces...

He He. I've got a room too & I'm hardly ever in it.

No neatness at my house!! Even though i have the dining table as my "Designated area" i always end up with the couch covered in crap :-)

I love the buttons photo. So true to how my space looks in the middle of "creating".

Melanie said...

Haha. My space is definitely *not* neat today, but I chose to photograph only a tiny sliver of it :)

Selina said...

clearly you didn't see my creative space a few weeks back. very, very untidy!! I thought by blogging it that would make me clean it up....no such luck!

Gina said...

Tee hee. It's total chaos over here too. Sometimes it's just nice to take an 'arty' shot that conveniently leaves out the pile of dirty clothes mixed in with the fabric stash, the breakfast dishes and potentially a few small children...
STILL loving the tea cosy. And your button stash is making me covetous...

love the buttons on the floor...there is always creativity in chaos

Perhaps my mourning the loss of 'my' sewing room is a bit exaggerated as I seem to do most of my crafting in the lounge & dining anyway!

thanks everyone, its so nice to hear that others have messy creative spaces too, and that its just artistic use of photography that makes everyone else's look neat.

and my button stash has also been inherited (along with the fabric stash) from my grandmother. and its less than half of it in the pic! my grandmother had was an amazing crafter, with an amazing stash of goodness that has been passed onto me...

Beautiful buttony love! I was only thinking today about how we lived only 12 months ago in a good sized 3 bedroom house and I wasn't really making anything. We're now in a cute, petite 2 bedroom house and I have a fledgling creative business, working from the kitchen table! Funny isn't it?!

Michelle said...

My space isn't tidy either. I think tidiness stifles creativity. I love your big jar of buttons.

I got so excited when I saw all those glorious buttons.

Neat creative spaces are boring!

Maybe next week I will post a picture of my handsewing (former nursing) chair in our family room. Since my husband finished my space a month ago, he gets a little antsy if I leave anything that is not a project being worked on in the room so I have to keep it clean!
