In terms of your things, what does your space (studio/office/living area) look like?
I share a workspace with my love. I try to clean and organize once a week. I’m slowly adopting zen practices and clearing away unnecessary clutter weekly. It is difficult and humbling! I am such a pack rat. I used to save every little string and thread I found, convincing myself it will come in handy for a future stop motion project. I have one desk for my computer and one desk for crafts. I have one bookcase to keep my supplies readily available. It is somewhat organized and minimal. The closet is another story. I keep boxes and random things in there. One day I will venture and organize that craziness. On the other side of the room is my love’s computer and music space. I really enjoy working next to my best friend.
Where do you normally get your things?
Friends, family, vintage stores, goodwill, savers, the internet, magical worm holes..?
My sketchbook collection – I have 7 books of secrets, impossible ideas, strange creatures, weird words, odd faces. My sketchbooks are proof they originated from my brain.A small square music box of a dancing rabbit – My mother bought it for me when she went away to Dallas for a business trip. It was the first time my mother was away from my for a long period of time. She’s very thrifty and rarely spends money on “frivilous” things. It meant a lot to me when she brought it home to me. I loved winding it up and watching the rabbit move its limbs.
