Also, I am a very messy cook. I can use every bowl and pan in the kitchen. It's a good thing I have tile floors, as there is no shortage of flour, chopped onions or cracker crumbs to step on after one of my sessions.
I am wondering if it's a schizoid personality thing...you know a defect of some kind - the desire for order and the inability to carry it out. I see this pattern repeatedly in my daily life. I love my home to be pretty, but I really only care about the rooms you might see when you came to visit. The rest of the house, not so much.
Nowhere is it more apparent that I am a natural slob than in the "back room". I share this space with the computer and office desk, but the the majority of the room is my creative space. I bead, sew and craft here, and these adventures are no less messy than my kitchen while I am cooking. I prefer to think of my back room messes as the result of creative genius.
And this week I am obsessed, hence the reason for the absence of blogging. I am participating in my first ATC swap with some fellow bloggers. I just happened upon Kimberly's blog on Artist Trading Cards, which are small 2.5" X 3.5" works of art. You can use any media, as long as they keep to the size. Needless to say, I want to play, Kimberly!! Tiny projects like this are very enticing to work on...you can finish them in a day. I need to create six of them for trading, so I have been working furiously on each little picture, leaving everything else in my life seemingly on hold. Four down, two to go!
Hence, my messy work space. Where are those scissors? What did I do with the gold pen?? Dang, I can't find anything! DUH!!!!
I will clean it up when I'm done. Really. I promise...
Laurel. Do something creative!
