My creative space

My creative space this week has to do with lists, organising, reorganising, visiting Ikea ( a girl just has to when she is moving things around!), going to the dollar store for more paper supplies- because frankly there can never be enough paper supplies, period!
I wrote a huge list of all my' to dos'- and I almost pulled my hair out- but then I went and got all these sketchbooks and notebooks and folders with dividers and of course I have my little moleskin that I carry with me everywhere and do tiny drawings of cars and whatever the day brings...while I am waiting in traffic (and hopefully its my husband driving...)
Believe me this August I am going to get that beast called 'mess' tamed...-once and for all! and then I am going to blow that smoke away from that gun of mine ... and paint my nails very-very pink!!!

Have fun in all the creative spaces around the globe meeting up at lovely Kootoyoo!!!

Thanks Tammy James, I feel it just has to be a great plan- I want September to find me all ready to go and do some good painting!

Selina said...

good luck for the taming the beast! I'm having a go at that myself this month.

Kylie said...

It sounds so exciting!!! I SO love your sketchbooks of inspiring ideas. Good luck at Ikea... a friend of mine likens a visit to Ikea with having bamboo hammered under your nails (!)... not good for your pink polish! :) Great space as always Annamaria! K

I enjoyed looking at your notebooks! I have a thing for notebooks, too. Just bought a bunch of spiral bound at the Goodwill for pocket change. Thanks for sharing your creative space.

Oh we're too alike! Paper, notebooks, pencils, stationery... my idea of heaven! :-)

gretchenmist said...

absolutely there are never enough supplies!
your sketches are very cute.
i always have intentions when it comes to sketchbooks but mainly draw on loose paper which then needs a trip to ikea to tidy up!!
your space is lovely. hope your day was great too :)

Exciting! Loving the pink polish and the trip to Ikea. I am so into your ideas for artist interviews too by the way. Sorry I haven't gotten back to you on that. I will right away. You energy level and drive totally inspires me! xoxo

Maybe it's something about August but I'm trying to wage war against mess as well and get organized. If only I too could get in a trip to Ikea.
Best of luck to you!

hollie said...

fresh supplies are -very- inspiring and the more notebooks the better, i say. i don't know what i would do without sketching in the car. good luck! it sounds like a great plan.
