seeing something that doesn’t exist already.
You need to find out how
you can bring it into being and that way be a playmate with God.”
~ Michele Shea
What’s your creative space like? It’s hard to get in the groove if you need to set up and take down every time you have a few minutes to spend on your project, whether it’s writing, sewing, scrapbooking, or any other creative endeavor. It quickly becomes more hassle than it’s worth, and that’s a shame. All of us need creativity.
a lot like looking at the world through a kaleidoscope.
You look at a set of elements,
the same ones everyone else sees,
but then reassemble those floating bits and pieces
into an enticing new possibility.”
~ Rosabeth Moss Kanter
My creative corner has an inspiration board, a calendar, family photos (especially of SweetPea!) and a painting of Taifa, a character in one of my novels, done by my daughter.
I also have a fairly ergonomic, if odd, arrangement of furniture and equipment. Because my main creative space is at work, writing on the laptop is perfect for me, as it goes back and forth with me every day. My space also has a large wooden table that not only holds my printer, but provides a place for notes. Just to the right of the top photo is a bookcase.
You imagine what you desire,
you will what you imagine
and at last you create what you will.”
~ George Bernard Shaw
When I sit down in my cheery yellow corner, I’m ready to get to work. What makes your creative space a place that helps your imagination run free?
