A Cluttered Studio is a sign of...

“If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind,
what is the significance of a clean desk?”
Dr. Laurence J. Peter
Sharing my studio... Does Dr. Lawrence Peter's quote directly correlate to a messy studio and creativity? Hmmmm...

I cherish anytime that I can spend time in my studio. I often dream of having a spacious studio with endless shelves and large windows to bring in more sunlight. I say, "If I had a bigger studio, it would not be as messy." HA! Who am I trying to fool?!

Actually, there are many things I love about my space (which is a guest room in our home):
  • I have a view of my street and can enjoy looking at my neighbors go about their day
  • I am right across the hall from the bedroom- easy to crawl to bed
  • My kitties and dogs love to come and sleep there while I am working
  • AND of course, all of my treasures- fabric, beads, charms, and on and on
Now there is slight problem with my studio at this point; at the beginning of my summer break from teaching, I had big plans to really get it organized. I have made some progress- but it has far to go! Right now it is at its height of disorganization.

Check back next Tuesday to see if I have made progress!

What do you think? Is a cluttered studio a sign of a creative person?

  1. I'm getting really frustrated with a lot of these blogs and artist write ups where a clean, perfectly ordered studio is pictured. My studio is much like yours and I would like to use some of your pics in a post. Would you permit this? I will of course link your blog to it.
