Have I mentioned how I much I love Marissa’s In the Fishbowl e-course? Well, I really do love it. She has brought up some really tough (for me)questions about why I do what I do, why do I love it, and most importantly how do I see myself in relation to my work. THe last one is the hard one for me. There is more. So much more that she has covered. It’s been hard for me to really figure this all out. My thoughts and ideas seem so fragmented, but I feel progress in straightening all this out in my head. Slowly, slowly, slowly.
During this last session, Marissa spoke a lot about blog presence and making your blog a place you love and want to be, like your favorite room in your home. I do love my blog, and feel some freshening up needed in terms of a new banner (it’s been a while) . Then she spoke about inspiration or vision boards. The whole thing got me thinking about my craft room and my boards. My craft room has been in a disastrous state for a while and it has not been a space of creativity. I’ve been camped out on the dining room table. I decided to put an end to that and cleaned everything! EVERYTHING. It was liberating. I threw a bag of stuff away and a box of stuff to donate to goodwill. I also tackled my inspiration wall. It was wonderful, like I cleared out my head a bit.
I hung new art up, new images that I love from magazines and covered the drawers of my FIRA drawers. I accomplished so much today and am ready to tackle the rest of the house. The kid’s room and living room (which is covered with toys)is on at the top of the list. I feel energized and excited to get this cleaning out of my system.
Now, I’m off to watch Glee!!! Yippeeeee!!
