This isn’t a product placement. I just really like going to IKEA. I enjoy meandering around the furniture, getting inspiration, and taking photos. I then head over to the restaurant for an early and cheap lunch with free coffee before heading down to the Marketplace to peruse and toss random things in my cart. I’m not usually a cake person, but for some reason, I always enjoy a slice of their cake with my coffee. Julia Cameron, in her book, The Artist’s Way, recommends taking “artist dates” with yourself. I guess this is one of mine. What’s yours?
