I know, this looks terrible, but I work well in my mess. When I’m working on more than one journal at a time, the mess is even bigger :). I find so many more ideas and inspiration when things aren’t neat. Color combinations I hadn’t thought of before, new layering ideas, even new journal layout ideas!
My hubby often says I have crafting A.D.D, since I can be in the middle of one project, have an idea strike, and be off to start a new project! But it works for me, its my creative process. Having different projects going in various stages of completion means I always have something to work on no matter what my mood.
When I’m in a knitting or crocheting mood, there have been many days my hubby has come home to find yarn covering every available flat surface in the living room. I love looking through all of my yarn and seeing the possibilities of each skein, and paging through books and magazines looking for new patterns and inspiration. Sometimes is takes a huge mess to find my next project!
Speaking of projects, the double cap I’m working on is about half way done. I am starting to suspect that ignoring the gauge swatch I did, where I had to go up a needle size to get close to the needed gauge, and using the smaller needles anyway may not work out as well as I had naively hoped. Still have my fingers crossed though!
Nova, such a cute lil fat guy!
