Hah! That’s a laugh! My Creative Space this week consists of flat pack furniture and piles of crap waiting to be rearranged so they are less pile-y and crappy and more tidy and neat. Fun, no. Necessary, yes.
I’ve been wanting a dedicated work area for a while. Even if sewing is kind of a side line for me, it’s nice to feel like I have some actual space in the house that is mine and where I can put my stuff without having to worry about tiny light fingered people having it away on their toes with my bits of precious.
So I poked Jake a bit and played up the fact that it will (hopefully) make the house Much Tidier. Less boxes of fabric every where, more room for the rest of the stuff we have piled up around the house to spread out. That kind of thing. And he kindly, after several months of gentle poking, drove out to a certain flat pack furniture outlet and ordered some stuff. And then he built it for me last night because it was big and heavy and I was ill and he likes hitting things with hammers. Or something.
Now I just have to figure out how to fit all this in there:
That in itself will be a creative act, I fear. Sigh. For some actual creative people go check out the linky down there on the right for Kirsty’s place.
