Creative Space – After (Part 3)

Posted by lori . 5 Comments


If you’re new to What Remains Now…let me catch you up.

January – I started my blog and wanted to have a creative space in my home, so I took over my daughter’s old room (with her permission).  My plan was to set goals, accomplish those goals and do it for $150.  I can assure you I wasn’t, but all evidence points to drug use over the holiday season.

February – I begged forgiveness, but was still delusional and promised good things in March.

March – I realized that writing a blog does NOT give you magical powers (drats!) and you are still the same person you were before you started writing a blog…for me that means a laid-back procrastinator.  So I told it like it is…this is going to take at least a year.

Here’s this month’s update…

1.  I added two shelves.  This arrangement looks better to me and gives me more storage space.

2.  I removed the big table.  I’m re-thinking the whole table thing.  For me and my habits, a big table might as well have a sign on it that says, “Put as much junk on me as you can until I am completely non-functional.”  Who wants that in their beautiful, inspirational creative space?  I want to look at a workspace I can easily put up when I need it, but just as easily take down before I get a case of the “messies.”

Here’s the big project this month…

3.  I cleaned out the closet.  Wondering what the black thing in the bottom of the closet is (third picture)…Twinkie, the kitty.  You know a cat can’t resist a new “empty” space.

Come back in May to see what happens next!

    Yeah, I was misinformed about that whole “having a blog gives you magical powers” thing, too. I think the room looks great and is coming along nicely. Just keep plugging away at it. You’ll get there!

    Now I feel the need to go clean out a closet.

    I think your space is looking good, and you inspired me to redo my own creative space! It’s almost done, with just a few tweaks left, although I do plan to tinker with a lot of things for a while. It was a great photo studio this afternoon! 🙂

      I’m SO happy for you. I’ve been enjoying your The Daily Shoot shots and look forward to many more wonderful things from the Houndstooth empire.

    The Daily Shoot has been really good for me! It’s pushed me to try new things and to sort of train my eye on what I’m looking for when I take pictures. Plus, it’s just fun!
