The Studio - A Work in Progress

 I've been a busy bee around here lately. I've been fluffing the nest. I have finally finished unpacking every single box and finding a home for every single thing.
 I finally got my studio in order. It's still not organized but it is all here and already working its inspiring magic on me, getting me in the right frame of mind for a project I need to work on before I meet up with a Silver Bella friend on Monday.

 I haven't been around much lately. I've been busy living life. Big things have been going on around here. Good big things.
 I am truly just loving life these days. I'm filled up with joy.

 Walking in to this room that has such a history of sustaining me and feeding my soul is giving me such comfort.
 I'm not quite done here yet.
 I still need to find a new home for my cozy brown sofa and find a piece of furniture that will provide extra storage to replace it.
 I surely have a serious storage issue here.
 On the other hand, that forces me to have all my pretty bits out where I can see them.
 That is part of the experience of being in this room.
 Part of why this room gives me so much joy.

 My studio is most definitely the room in my home that most expresses my taste.
 I look forward to the day when I can say that about my entire home. For now, this will do.

  9. It looks like a creative dream to me. Old small houses force creative storage. I like having all my things out about me. Can't wait to see that up in person very soon. And get a cupcake. And a pumpkin latte. And ride a scooter. And see your sweet face.

  10. I wish I could say the same about my creative space. I walk in and just feel...tired. disgoranized. I can't wait to get out of here. I need storage. Not very creative feelings. I've walked into my space and thought, I wish it looked like Jen's! seriously!
    It's lovely. :) come help me with mine! LOL!

  15. I could sit in that room and stay for days. It is so beautiful and such a reflection of you! I loved all of the little peeks - especially your swoony apron and the ball jar at the end. And the felted donkey!

    So happy to see that the sun is shining down on you right now. :)

  16. Thanks for sharing your little bit of heaven with us.
    BTW on the blog UNCLUTTERER every week Erin highlights a great workplace/creative area -- and I recommend that you check it out and submit your special space.
    I don't know Erin but read her blog just as I read yours.
    So good luck give it a try.

  19. My sewing room is "my" room of the house, a room where I can have my aqua, pink, ruffles, milk glass, and all of my girly feeling things.

    I really enjoyed a peek into your room and it makes me want to head up to mine and make some changes here and there.

  20. Your studio and your bookshelf are two things I really wanted to devote more snooping time to. It's just lovely, and I can't wait to see what comes out of it over these next few months. And congrats on having yourself all unpacked - I bet that feels good!

    Thanks for sharing.

  23. Every time I catch a peek of your pink handled tin I get excited, because I've got one, too, and I store my cookie cutters in it. I'm pretty sure it came from a Sears fruitcake in the 60s. Pretty space!
