I work at a fabric store and we spend the mornings cleaning the store before we open. Since I started my own wearable-art business, I feel it's good protocol to do this before I start working. It feels very necessary. Otherwise the mess just gets messier and it can be difficult to feel inspired and creative. And it gets messy FAST when you're painting and sewing, cutting fabric, piecing fabric out on the floor, etc. You must keep your space clean! You must! You must! I was thinking of this the other day; how much of our lives we spend tidying up. As a creative, the mess-maker in me comes so naturally. It's all part of the territory though, when you're a maker.
I have a few more days left to take photos and create garments before I apply to my first show. The deadline is this Friday, April 6th. I'm nervous and very excited of course. I hope I get in!
