How To’s Day: Creating a space to create!

So, how many of you wish you had a place to do your creative stuff? Ooh I see a lot of hands up out there!

I am  right with you!

With 4 kids two cats and a largish dog, I struggle just to walk through a room let alone carve out a space for myself to ‘create’.

The hubs has his own office space, and we shared it for a while; that was until my oldest moved his desk in there so he could do his high school work.  Now it is a bit of a ‘man cave’ and there is no space for me to spread out and work.

We have a 3 season room and I have generally had that space a bit.. it is mainly used as a play room for the little guys.  And we also have this unique space it’s a long storage room about 10(ish) feet wide by 5 feet high by bazillion feet long. (the full length of the house) the one furnace is in there and it’s not a bad space, but you can imagine it is quite like a REAL cave! Our thought was to turn that space into a play area for the boys and that would leave the porch room for me right?

So here’s my question. I wonder how do I claim that space for myself? Setting rules.. etc. and How do I do it without feeling guilty or even selfish! (Us moms are good at that eh?)

How do you do it?

  1. I agree, it’s hard for us moms to ask for what we need without feeling guilty. But by claiming your space, you are teaching your kids that creative space is important. By having a creative space with “my stuff” I feel like my kids see me as an individual, not just their mom. The porch sounds like a lovely place for you; lots of light? Best wishes for your new space!
