Having your own space to create is important. Decorating that space to make it inspirational is a bonus. The importance of finding your own place to zen out and focus is crucial to the creative process, in my humble opinion. As a mom of two littles, trying to carve out some creative time and space is tedious but much needed. Shout out to all the overly caffeinated moms out there! Make the most of bland beige walls, add a splash of color or your favorite framed art, get a little messy and unorthodox, it’s your space so embrace it.
We’ve moved twice in the past two years and now that we own our place I can finally do my collage wall that I have been wanting for so long. I just jumped in feet first and started hanging stuff up. And I LOVE it. It’s so colorful and fun.
How have you decorated your creative space? Is it modern, simple and clean, is it ordained with nice classic paintings as you sit on your wing-back chair, is it a paint splattered art studio with concrete floors, is it a giant cork board with all of your current projects, is it a colorful mishmash of things like mine? Any place can become a creative space.
Remember a creative space can be whatever you make of it, just as inspiration can come from anywhere. Whether it’s a closet turned office like Perry Covington author of the wonderful Child of Atlantis series. (Check it out here). I designed his publisher’s logo by the way! #logodesigner Or if you hide away at the local coffee shop like Jerry Rogers author of the supernatural mystery awesomeness The Fallen and The Elect series. (Check it out here). I designed both his website header and his author’s logo… wink wink! #hireme

“Build your tribe”
I cannot express how important it is to surround yourself with like minded people both in life and in your creative endeavors. As for me, I love my church and have found a group of non-judgemental, sweet, kind-hearted and all around awesome people. I also reach out to creatives in all genres and I love the feedback I get. It is truly a great feeling.
Because sometimes you just gotta chill.
