Or not. Or, at least not all the time. Hopefully.
In my current apartment, the only place to put my office/studio is the living room. So, I’ve had to put some extra effort into making it organized and reasonably attractive. This is a good thing. Yesterday, since I was feeling a little mopey after putting my daughter on a plane back to college, I decided to really get it whipped into shape.
I discovered about 27 unfinished arts and crafts projects. I’d like to think this is a sign of a creative mind at work, but in fact it is more a sign of a distracted mind!
Two projects got trashed. Several other ones (failed knitting projects) are in the process of being “frogged” or unraveled so the yarn can be used again. This sounds tedious, but I don’t actually mind doing it. It’s a great excuse to watch trash TV on a rainy day.
And the rest are at least all in one box so I know where they are lurking.
OK, I know the shelf with all of the square openings is from Ikea. But are the brown baskets and green boxes, too? Because I seriously need some of those.
The green boxes are from Ikea, but the baskets I bought in Poland many years ago. However, I Ikea here has some baskets that are very much like them (probably from Poland, too.)
You inspired me to do a mini-cleanup in my own studio space! 🙂
Wow, that really looks awesome. I mean it looks tidy but not so sterile as to stifle creative impulses. I’m feeling a little inspired 🙂
Love the thought of being able to put a lid on unfinished project and let them lurk on in the dark!
