my creative space


I've started making a "creating" space... in the belief that a dedicated space - even if it is jammed into our little bedroom - might help me escape a little creative rut.

It's still a bit messy (and one day perhaps we should think about painting the walls!), but it is filled with pieces I love - thrifted and inherited pieces, that gorgeous bag, and a bunch of early photos of me and him (a nice reminder as our "first date anniversary" - our 12th! - is fast approaching).

So far, no great creative output to show for it... but one day...

Kootoyoo is the place for creative space inspiration...

Wendy said...

Oh, Catherine...if those drawers go missing one day, you'll know where to look for them! Sooo neat! Your space looks like it's coming together beautifully...

Tanya said...

I agree, it looks really ordered and inspiring, and maybe if it's a smallish space it will be easy to keep neat...unlike mine...!

Lovely space. Does not look messy at all, you should see mine!

Vic said...

Having your own space is & will be wonderful!

That looks so lovely, compact, orderly and simple! I've come back a second time to have a look. The timbers all look wonderful ... and there's that bag waiting for its laptop contents.

Really, you've done a wonderful job ... I have to do some rearranging here, and you're inspiring me.

Kate said...

The little crafting nook looks perfect!
Can't wait to see the creativity that comes next.

Sally said...

Your crafty space looks wonderful. Enchanting even... I'm sure your mojo will return in now time.

Your space looks beautiful- I am in the process of trying to do the same thing - managed to find a spare corner in our granny flat, found a table and cleared it then blinked and it had been overtaken by a lego cargo trainset! Blast Legoman and Roboboy, it will be mine again!

we have the same sewing machine. I love your drawers. It is so good to have a spce where the machine is perminately set up- makes like so much easier.

Tania said...

Firstly, I am entirely besotted with your drawers. Secondly, if there isn't a creating space then where do you go to 'do' creative? Good move chook!

I think you will be very inspired in this charming little nook. Everyone needs a special place of their own. I love your furniture and the patterns. Very nice indeed. x
