Eventide

Evening, night, dusk, twilight, eventide – my creativity ignites when the moon rises and the stars glisten hello. My best writing and musing takes place, ideas, inspiration, and lately second winds that send me into mad sewing escapades. So when Creative Every Day mentioned that February’s theme was night, two things happened: my inner night owl was pleased, and I finally realized how I was going to finish the painting in my bedroom (and tie in the plum hues).

Plum stars. Magical, flowy, windswept plum stars that tie the plum fabric in with a whimsical-wanna-be-bohemian-hug.

Plum

 

Purple Space

I painted my white space purple. The painting looks “textured”, with multiple hues of reds and purple with shots of cerulean and in the corner, in white, I wrote “love” and called it good. I might add some more plum elements just to pull in the curtains more overtly, but at the moment, even with less plum, it ties things in rather nicely.
Room (redesigned) with painted canvas I haven’t done anything to the bedroom since, but I did give my bookshelf and The Flux some attention. I took down my animal/fairy display from the bookshelf so I could put more books on it.
Book Shelf, now with more books!
So, then I moved my awesome animal and fairy display into The Flux. I put the three cardboard boxes that I was keeping (after I got rid of a ton of others earlier) to use and covered them with some leftover cloak material and made myself a little corner.

I also moved the desk off the green screen so we can use it again, and moved my sewing machine to floor so we can actually use the desk (currently, prop-making). Eventually, we’ll need to get another desk…

When the internet is boring

It’s time to do something else. I should do that more often really. Last night I got bored, and after staring blankly at my screen hoping for something interesting, I went into my [newly re-arranged, and significantly warmer – who knew keeping the bed off the baseboards would allow the heat to flow?] bedroom and drew some ideas to color my white space.

Now that I have…10 possibilites I can decide which one I’d like to paint and hang over our bed.

The bed and the painting will end up being the focal point – the inspiration picture and the curtains on the window and over the closet will help tie everything together. And I’m going to refinish the nightstand that I temporarily put a scarf over. O:)
Anyway, after brainstorming I decided to finally just read. I started this book, Spellwright, a few months ago and got really busy and stopped reading it. Mostly because I can’t put books down very easily, so I stuck to reading comics while I was working so I wouldn’t stay up all night reading. I loved reading the comics too, but I’ve really really wanted to get back to Spellwright and just never got around to it…until last night. It was wonderful, and now I’m halfway through and can’t wait to get back into it.
