My Creative Space


I don't even know where to begin with my creative space today....


After the market last weekend, and working on bits and pieces for the upcoming exhibition, my house is strewn with remnants of various completed, and work in progress projects.

Add in the normal chaos of my life, with the comings and goings each day, and appointments and tasks, and constantly dragging things around the house, and dealing with Houdini Dog and Bastard Cat (who woke me up at least three times lastnight).... and I feel like I'm either in the middle of a cyclone, or living in some sort of alternate universe!


My task for today is to try to sort out some of this mess before I have to employ Peter Walsh and his clean up crew.

I really think that they should resurrect that old show Your Life on the Lawn with Lissanne Oliver. I'd be a perfect candidate!

The home of (hopefully much nicer and cleaner) creative spaces....

I tried tidying up last week ... but everything is back in its usual state of chaos now! I've decided just to go with it now!

I wish I could let all my things sprawl like yours!

I'll come and clean up your place if you do my consultancy work for me.

our shabby cottage said...

I know how you feel, mine looks like a bomb has gone off....

Cat from Raspberry Rainbow said...

I love your work bench, I always love having a peep at other peeps creating areas - yours looks like fun!

Jennie said...

Looks like you're doing something different with the colourful doilies - can't wait to see what you're working on.x

Isnt there some saying about how the workspace of a genius is always chaotic? ( or did i just make that up? )

Lola Nova said...

I am so intrigued with that pretty colorful work you have going on, how exciting!

One woman's mess, is another woman's sanctuary! All good mess leads to creativity. Loads of ways we can put a positive spin on this one. Love your space.

I hope Mellissa wasn’t making that up about messy spaces and geniuses – because if it’s true I must be absolutely brilliant. Seriously I wish my studio were only as messy as yours, mine is absolute chaos at the moment. I mean really chaos; it makes your look like a minimalist museum!

Tania said...

I have a theory that only architects and interior designers have clean creative spaces. The rest of us have to make do with organised creative chaos!

m.e (Cathie) said...

organised creative chaos! that sounds good.
it really isn't that bad Cam, I have seen worse..oh yeah, looking at mine now!

thanks for the add, i have never got that high up the list ;)
happy creating

Jennifer Rose said...

Chantal said...

Looks like good organised creative chaos!

Cotton Kiwi said...

Now how can you possibly have the energy to do any tidying when the bastard cat has kept you awake all night? I have one of those too. Evil little blighters. Loving your rainbow coloured doilies BTW.

Swirlyarts said...

I wish I could come over and rummage through your stuff - good job you live on the other side of the world!

Michelle said...

Don't clean it! It looks so pretty!!

michelle said...

i hear you sister. i can barely get in the door of my space, in fact it is so messy i have abandoned it in favour of the family room that is now equally bad

Amanda said...

I wouldn't be looking at my creatives space for a clean and tidy house/sewing room lol.

Melanie Gray Augustin said...

hehehe... when you're done with Peter, can you send him around here? My lovely organised room that I photographed on Thursday already looks like a bomb hit it again!

hehehe... and I have to add that my verification word for this is "kises"
