I have been SOOO looking forward to today! Karen of My Desert Cottage is hosting a "Where Bloggers Create" party! Whoo-hoo! I SO love looking into other artists studios and creative spaces!
There are SO many fabulous bloggers joining in so I, for one, am planning on taking tons of virtuals tours!
I'm joining in the fun so I have a few pictures from around my studio. This room is one of the bedrooms in our house and I'm getting kinda itchy to redo it with all new furniture. My tastes and needs have changed since my fabulous husband put it together for me. But I still love love love being be in this room.
...and there are lots of spots that make me happy.
The desk is a door blank. Glen mounted it on top of two industrial shelving units and then he gave it a huge flat drawer. When I used to make a lot of books, it was storage for large sheets of paper. These days it holds letterpress trays filled with treats!
On one of the shelves above my desk, I have my collection of fatbooks! I LOVE how they look on end and I thought I was brilliant to put them right where I can see them when I sit at my desk. This just makes me deliriously happy! :-)
I'll just let you look around now. Feel free to open up any jars or drawers and poke around. I'll be sure to show you a few of my favorite little spots. :-)
Do you spy the glass Sparklett's water jug filled with buttons??
Okay...so now I'm cheating. This next picture is actually not in my studio but in our daughter's now vacant former bedroom. The room is all cleaned out now and Glen just shampooed the carpet. The intention is to turn it into a guest room but since I'm kinda outgrowing my studio, I've been slowly moving some of my sewing stuff into the room and calling it the guest room slash sewing room. I think it's working, girls! :-)
Check out that gorgeous mirror!!! Picked that baby up at Goodwill for cheap! Absolute could NOT not buy it! And it's an old one too!
Oh and also...this is my apron for Silver Bella!!! So excited! Especially since yesterday I spent an incredible day hanging out with Natalie, Lonnie, Stacy, and Colleen. Oh how I adore these girls! I had so much fun! Plus we had lunch and a lovely visit with this sweet gal. LOTS of pictures to share with you from that studio visit, let me tell you!
Okay...well that's just about it. I hope you enjoyed this little tour of the room where I try to make pretty things. I sure hope you joined Karen's party so I can come visit you now. :-)
