Yesterday my creative space was going to be all about writing up a project for yet another deadline.
A trip to Officeworks in the morning resulted in the purchase of some fabric markers and a stroke of genius. My hobby-fill-obsessed child-of-an-artistic-bent would be occupied for HOURS while I was busy with my work.... She could make a calico doll!
Turns out she had plans for a production run.
I was kept busy at the sewing machine and slip-stitching station while she was in control of drawing and stuffing. We now have a family of calico dolls. And the wee girl is excited by her plans for us to "make clothes for them"....
Some days I have to just let go of plans and enjoy the moment - especially after a hectic few weeks. Recharge the creative batteries. Soak up my beautiful girl.
For more creative spaces (lots of!) pop in to visit Kirsty.
