A blog dedicated to my journey exploring the creative world, mainly through art journals. This is a very new endeavor, as I've spent most of my life thinking I wasn't creative at all. This is still something I struggle with, but I hope I will be able to look back upon the beginning as a jumping point off in my life. I also hope I can inspire other people who do not think they are creative to find their muse and CREATE!
I realized today that its been about two months
since I've done any art in my bedroom/studio.
I have taken over the kitchen table
Now I don't feel so bad about doing my
artwork on my kitchen table, because
I can watch our GIGANTIC tv from
the kitchen. (My roommate works for an electronics company :))
Except, my art has spilled out into the living room floor too.
What can I say, I need SPACE to do what I need!
Except this apartment isn't mine alone.
My roommate is my best friend.
We have lived together almost 6 years,
known each other for 11.

Say hello to Fergy!
I moved my bed to the center of the room,
and plan on placing my desk near/in front of the window.
I've always wanted to have natural light at my desk.

That trash bag?
Full of my paints/inks/mediums/paint brushes..mmmm...
I LOVE the little storage bins with fabric bins in them,
found at Target!
You can't really tell...
but there is a LOT of constructing
needed to put together this desk.
I can barely hammer a nail straight.
Phase 2: Project Want to Die While I Make a Desk
tomorrow night :)
Check out all the trash...
I am not even a pack rat,
and yet, when you move stuff around,
you always end up with lots of trash.
I love it!
Oh, and I definitely needed this tonight:
(this shotglass was bought especially for me,
because I'm so short. My friends think it is HYSTERICAL!)
