Yes, it is important to have one! I will forever be faithful to the idea of having a little corner so you can completely disconnect from the outside world and focus on the “here and now”.
I can be a bit too aware of the surrounding space and can get easily distracted if there is no structure around me. Naturally, when I got involved with jewellery making and as I started getting more tools and materials things got a bit… chaotic (to say the least)! As a consequence and to avoid the messy kind of stress, I ended up putting together my own creative corner. It changed with time as it was all a bit trial-and-error but I think now it’s as I need. I now have beads to one side, tools to another, made jewellery separately… it’s a jewellery making Heaven 🙂
Below are some pictures of the adaptation process before the current stage:
Essentially, before I was finding space rather than creating it. Here is how it all looks now:
Regardless of how organised you are, here is the thing to remember: If, like me, you have a million things on your to-do list all the time, set realistic deadlines! And allow yourself a bit of time to RELAX! (yes, yes, hard, I know – but you need it!).
