I've always been an introvert, even as a young child. My mother often says that I could keep myself entertained for hours. I've always needed a certain amount of solitude, which has caused some conflict in relationships. I get pretty ornery if I don't have my "down time."
On another note, over the past couple of months I've been so busy with the chunky & skinny books, and making things to sell at a home boutique, that I really haven't had a chance to just do creative work for its own sake. I am really enjoying doing these "rooms" because they truly are creative introspection.
