Today was a typical Cincinnati spring day….rainy, chill and dreary. Days like this just sap all my creativity so I find the best thing to do is a dreaded studio clean-up. On the best of days this is not my favorite thing to do, but if I don’t periodically create some order in my work space I won’t create anything worth showing off.
As a child I was very creative and was constantly into something. My long-suffering mother though managed to make sure that I put things away when I was finished with a project. I had “chores” and I wasn’t allowed to start a project until my chores were finished.
And while I enjoy unfettered creativity there is something to be said for picking up after yourself.
So as I finish my tea and toast (and this post) I will gear to tackle the monster waiting in the basement, otherwise known as my workshop. With some upbeat music and my cat to keep my company I should be able to at least see the table top by dinner time!
