A Little Corner of My World
This is one of my favorite corners in my house (minus the cords hanging down from my tv...anyone got a good idea how to get rid of those?). My craft room is my idea factory, oasis, sanctuary, my tent of meeting, a warm and cozy place of inspiration for me. Someday I hope to call it a studio, but I don't think I am there yet. There seems to be a line drawn between those two terms, and I guess I haven't crossed it yet...someday. I love to snuggle into this spot and knit and make lists (one of my true passions!). The teddy bear welcomes my daughter everyday. I have been working to somehow kid proof the room. Its gone pretty well so far, I'll show you those ideas another day. But I always knew that she had to be welcome here. I want my daughter to grow up in a creative space with no limits to her imagination. Sometimes the task of parenting seems so scary, what if we screw her up! What if she goes on Oprah and talks about how awful I was!! But then I remember that Oprah is 50 something now, by the time Sydney is old enough to complain about me, she will have surely retired, right!
