I’ve been shifting gears this week on focusing on making jewelry, so I haven’t touched a pen in a while. Last night I forced myself to draw and paint for a couple hours while Billy sat behind me at the kitchen table and worked on his stuff, as his semester just ended at school and he works more at home now. There’s something about those moments where we’re both in the same room, not talking, listening to music, and working on our own projects that’s so great. I think it’s important to have someone, anyone, who you can feed creative energy off of. Even if you’re not working together to make something, it’s just creative atmosphere collaboration.
