It's location is perfect when I'm feeling creative. It's on the main level of the house, and right off the kitchen and living room. So easy for grabbing a cup of tea or a latte when I'm ready for a break, the bathroom is right across the hall for an easy access water source (and getting rid of the tea or latte), and it's got a door to close out the kitty girls so they aren't playing in all those baubles & beads while we're at work during the day. Unfortunately, that also makes it perfect for hiding and storing stuff so the rest of the house looks nice while we're in the middle of chaos.
The last few weeks when I open the door and walk in the room, I stand there feeling overwhelmed for a minute, and then turn around and walk out. It's very hard to feel inspired to create when I can barely find my workbench. . .although, I could use the toilet for additional seating at one of my workstations!
I'm hoping we finish up the remodel within a week or so, and that my little piece of the world will be restored. I miss it, and can't wait to open that door again and feel inspired. In the meantime? I'll find inspiration in my many design books and magazines; in my fellow designers' websites, blogs, and Etsy sites; and will simply find the beautiful in all the things around me.
