Creating in the Midst Wk 1: Just Breathe...finally a place to create...


Well...it's week 1 of Creating in the Midst Melba's Creative Blogger Group (CIM)and our assignment is to carve out some time to create a 'sacred place' and to just B-R-E-A-T-H-E. For some time now, it's always been me+the floors or me+other rooms. But you know what, no more hard+cold floors, no more hunchbacks of notre dame and no more searching for this or that. I finally have somewhere to create, to dream...to BREATHE...it's our lil' guest bedroom:




I do have a make shift studio in our basement that houses most of my supplies, decorations, etc...but it's soooo dark and not very inspirational. But for now, until I get enough TIME + $ to redo our basement, this lil' blue room will be my 'sacred place'...to read a good book, to write in my journal...

to listen to my sweet French Chansons...I adore their language...their sweet voices...ahhh to dream of Paris...



It has a door...and I could close it whenever I need to escape or to JUST BE. I could play my favourite tunes without hearing Hannah Montana or Batman screaming in the background.
I could just dream...get inspired...and create until...
my two lil' munchkins start screaming..."Mommy...____ did this, ___ hit me, or ____isn't sharing..." but that's ok...because, I'll know that my lil' blue room is waiting for me and when the lil' ones hit their noggins on their pillows into dreamland...well, I'll be able to escape just a couple of steps away from them and dream alittle too!
Bonne Nuit xoxo Jo ;)

Oh, me, oh, my!! What an absolutely STUNNING room. I adore it - especially all the little Parisian touches. It's definitely an oasis - I envy you!

We all need "our own little space" to spread our wings and things. The room looks beautiful and airy. Well done on your award. I dream of growing my blog into something people look forward to coming to.

I am so proud of you for making yourself this space. Isn't it wonderful! I took over a spare bedroom and now it is "Mama's room".

Hope you have many enjoyable and creative times in your room and if you ever get tired of your Eiffel tower items, you know who you can pass them along to - :>)
