I know I promised "musical lamps" today but last night I was inspired to finally organize my artist's corner. These photos created some serious inspiration....

So, just like an artist, I started off with a blank canvas, an extra guest bedroom that was used as a "catch all" for stuff I didn't know what to do with.
And then I finally unpacked all my supplies after 7 months. Organized and separated materials like beads, buttons, ribbons, seashells into mason jars.
After organizing, I set up a space to paint with the perfect view. If you look closely you might catch a glimpse of the outside lake view. I am sure this will be a constant source of inspiration.
And finally, putting it all together. My desk area where I can sew, paint, and draw.
I am not a great artist or seamstress by any means, but being creative allows me to open my mind and enjoy the *fancy* around me. In other words, this quote sums it up:
"What art offers is space-a certain breathing room for the spirit." (John Updike)
