The vacuum cleaner stood in the center of the floor, the fabric needed to be put away, and don't even remind me the litter boxes need to be filled and the burnt out light bulbs replaced........because RIGHT NOW I have to make something.
Do you ever feel that the real world gets in the way of your creative side? I know creating is what keeps me going and the creative juices never stop flowing. Unfortunately, there is just not always enough time to get done what HAS to get done and to sit down in the studio and go inside my own world of what I call "making something". Today, however, that is exactly what I did.
Just an old 1950's jewelry box, but with gorgeous pink velvet lining became my starting place......I topped it with vintage papers, laces, trims, and even an old piece of antique murano glass from a broken mirror I just couldn't discard. Not the most intensive of projects, but one that gave me some satisfaction for the moment where I can get on with my day until I just can't take it anymore and wander back into that special room I call my own......to make something else that just can't wait!
