creative corner

I like to call this quiet space of my home my “creative corner”.  This window has the most beautiful light.  It seems that every other space is filled with toys, bouncy chairs, and all things pink!  But this corner is my own.  I spend quite a lot of time here –  thinking, meditating, and comforting my baby girl in the wee hours of the morning.

I love to begin my mornings curled up here, these books in my lap and my knees tucked beneath me, staring out of this window.  I’ve watched the seasons change from summer to autumn.  These past couple of mornings I have awakened to snow, a sure sign that winter is well on her way.

I write all of photo ideas and creative thoughts in these journals.  The larger one I use mostly for sketching or doodling, the smaller one I carry with me during the day, stashed in my bag just in case anything should inspire me while I am out.  They contain so many of my hopes and dreams, things that I wish to do, but simply don’t have the time to right now.  But I know that I will, someday.

Do you have a creative space in your home?  Somewhere that is just for you?


I want to sincerely thank each and every one of you for all of your heartfelt words in the comments from my first post.  It is good to see so many familiar faces that have followed me here, and meet so many new readers – thank you!

    I am an empty nester now so I have an entire house to myself from around 6am every week day. I love to read the paper in bed in the morning with my cup of Chai tea with honey. I do have a studio which in the last weekend of rain flooded eek!!! So some carpet removing happening this weekend. I love your space though and the window to the world so beautiful.ReplyCancel
