"Normal Day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all in the world, for your return." ~ Mary Jean Iron
My poor art room has up-chucked the contents of boxes, bags, paint pots and other artsy things all over the room:
There are about five different projects going on at the moment:
My art room does not seem to be large enough to contain all of it...in fact, it even spilled down the stairs and into the family room at one point (no pics of that, though):
I am definitely going to have to clean up a bit before I can retackle my projects. I make HUGE messes (can't you tell) while I am creating, but sometimes I have to stop and clean it up or the chaos becomes too overwhelming and distracting and I can no longer create.
How does it work for you? Do you create within chaos, or do you need a neat and tidy space to work in?
