There are some days that I find just get away from me. Whether because of everyday errands, business-keeping, or just the occasional bout of laziness, it’s often easy for the day to get whittled away by things that aren’t necessarily high on my list of “things that make me happy.” Sometimes I have to remind myself how fortunate I am to have a space to which I can retreat when creativity calls. But I’ve also been very lucky to be involved in another creative venture. I spend three days a week in a lofty, sun-drenched space in West Chelsea as the Crafts Department intern for Martha Stewart Living magazine, where the surroundings themselves keep my crafty mind in action. It’s in the Craft Room that I get to be surrounded by crafty people and any possible craft supply you could imagine, from pips to poppies. There have been many days here that I’ve found myself crafting the day away while listening to NPR or spanish guitar and gazing out the window at the Hudson River. I thought I would share with you some little bits of my days there in the hopes that they may inspire you to get lost in your craft for a day or two (and hopefully many more!).
