I need to be creative every day.  On Friday, I went into the studio with the intention of doing something creative, but while searching for something else, I came across several boxes of fabric that had not been sorted by color.  Five hours later, these shelves were more organized; easier to find pieces for a quilt repair.  Did my creative needs get met?  I did not think so:  at 10:30 PM I picked up an unfinished jewelry project and took 10 minutes to make it wearable.  Then I felt like my creative needs were met.
Ann Wood’s blog mentioned Twyla Tharp’s book The Creative Habit, which I have, but have not read.  I picked it up and read the first chapter and realized that the organizing and labeling were creative, part of keeping order and supporting the projects that I will do.  Who knew it would take so long to make this my nest?    (Necklace: the moss agate doughnut was done in a class over 5 years ago; the beads are old and were assembled more than a year ago.  Friday, I finished off the ends to wear it yesterday.)
