Our God is a creator – it was His first act, was it not? Light, Earth, Color, Foliage…We see His artwork everywhere. When He created us in His image, He put in us the ability, and in some a very strong drive, to create.
I am one of those that got a big dose of the drive to create. I get great fulfillment from a tidy house and a yummy meal, but I literally can’t sleep at night if I haven’t created something lately.
Because of the move, I haven’t had a functional studio in month, and I am feelin’ it! Now that we are well settled in and the other rooms in the house are all functional, it’s time to focus on getting the studio – my creating space – in shape. It has been the catch-all for tools, building materials, half-unpacked boxes, ski gear, and even trash since we moved.
Yesterday Jesse and I took the plunge. I am glad he was there to help – I was afraid to go in there by myself! Together we cleared enough room so Daddy could get in there last night to put up my shelving for me. Today my mom and some of my sibs are coming over to give me a hand – there is still a lot of stuff that needs to be brought over from the old studio.
These are the ‘before’ pictures – hopefully we’ll have some nice ‘after’ pictures soon!

Ah, yes. I found one online at Joann's, I'm not sure why I didn't think to look there! It's only $9.99 so I may have to get one of those, and then make room to use it. You're so lucky to have a separate room for a studio! I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of the finished room!
natalie, I found the thread holder at a thrift store, but I believe Joann's or even walmart had them last I saw!
We got a lot done in the studio today! I will be able to CREATE tomorrow! 🙂
I can REALLY relate to the "created to create" issue. These days I've been settling for cutting tiny snowflakes (found online) for our classroom board. I do have to do at least one project every few days though or I start to get cranky 😉

I like that thread holder thing…where can you get those? I've seen them before, but never in a store.
