...I started keeping a creative journal. I use a spiral bound sketch book, taking notes on ideas or things I see around that inspire and also do some drawing - very basic, to cement the idea. I can go back when I'm not sure what I want to do, and pull something from the journal that's been waiting to be tried.

...I finally got my studio set up with a *real* table space and appropriate chair. Tools are in easy to access cans, books in a bookcase nearby, blades are not so sneaky, that kind of thing. Before I had this table (it's a big folding one with a surface that'll handle even the nastiest things without blinking) I was working most of the time in my recliner, which couldn't support me properly for working. Everything had to be pulled out and put back when I was done for the day, and that rarely happened. Mom's livingroom looks more liveable now, lol.

...I started putting a cover over my pasta machine when it wasn't in use. I was finding all kinds of junk sticking to that thing and it took time away from creating to clean it up. Sometimes I'd get lazy and fur/dust got into my clay, ick! Luckily, I'm at my studio now and the cat's are at Mom's house. At least until my house gets finished, lol.

ooo I like the idea of the pasta machine cover.  I was much happier when I set up my workspace.  It made it so I could just sit down and work a little bit here and there.

it's totally true! I tell all my students that my very best tool, the number one tool I must have, is my computer.

I have always thought you were fluent with English Eva! You write it better than I do and I speak it as a first language!! :)

I actually sometimes dream in English - and Spanish, too. *LOL*

Quick question for all you posters...

This has been a terrific and positive thread, and I thought it would be a great idea to make it a webpage on the PCC website. Reading your words is like reading a textbook on how to improve your work, and I think it would benefit a lot of people that don't read the message board. This would be a little in the future, because I'm sure more posts will be added.

If anyone would NOT want their words included, please let me know and I'll make sure your posts are excluded. Of course, credits will be given to all the posts used.

So, carry on... I've enjoyed this thread!

I think that's a great idea especially if you can have a way for people to add their own experience into the mix.
