I like to share a picture when I change up my scrap space. Not sure why, I guess then you can all picture where I do my art:) Simple, yet inspiring. I look at it a thousand times a day, because if you could see the rest of the room, you would see that right next to this dresser is our dining room table. Yes, my "studio" is my family dining area. I love it! I have this great dresser and a little cabinet of drawers to hold my stuff, then when I want to work on something I just put it on the breakfast bar in our kitchen and can poke at it throughout the day. If the kids are in bed, I spread out on the table and get to work. It's the center of the home and I love to have the visual inspiration around me all the time. Here are some more photos during summer, fall, and winter. By the way, how's this for an inspiring New Year's project. Love it!Since the calendar I made here for my sister was such a huge hit with her, I decided to spend some time making myself one for the year. Her numbers were a little more uniform, I may try to make mine less gaudy. The month on top is magnetic, along with all the numbers, so I just change it out each month and store them behind the calendar on the cookie pan. The picture below shows the little cubbie in our kitchen where it hangs alongside Lowell's art work:)
I bought two of these crazy cool peacock feather trees. Funky! Here's what our front window looks like now after taking down the Christmas tree. I needed a post-Christmas, pre-Valentine's wintery feel. I decided to put up this frilly white feather tree along with my lovely star from Jenny. It looks great from the street for passers-by. Edit- all the feather trees are from Target of all places. 75% off with their Christmas stuff!Here is some VERY important news!! The auction of *amazing* artwork all benefitting the Kim family began today on ebay. Here's an article about why it was organized. Glad to see the bidding is going really well already:) Go bid...it's for a good cause!!!
