my creative space . the big open road!




i'm very excited to say that the big wide world {the road} has been my space today!
i passed my driving test yesterday ~ which is such a relief! my first 'solo' drive {my 2 year old fell asleep in the back after 3 minutes} was to the art shop for these wood panels.
today i got across town for a meeting, then to north melbourne to have a look at a shop . . . then safely home {only one man swore at me} . . . i was surprised to find that driving alone can be a nice quiet space :)
p.s. kylie, it's not just the mirrors that need a clean!

happy space day! to see more spaces, visit kirsty.
