Where Bloggers Create

July 13, 2012

Welcome to my little studio...

It is a place where I come to nurture my soul, work with my hands and allow my imagination to soar.

I am so thankful and blessed to have my little creative space in my house.  Being downstairs with no windows it is a warm and cozy environment.

I love surrounding my space with vintage finds just waiting to be used in my artwork.

Miss Clara M, my vintage mannequin, is one of my most treasured pieces in my studio.  

Family pictures and along with family heirlooms are displayed along side creative embellishments.

Cabinets hold more creative finds and fabrics.

My Grandma's jewelry box holds small treasures just waiting to be used.

Being surrounded by creative displays and organized storage, inspires me to create.

Suitcases and lunchboxes, along with old crocks hold creative magazines, books and crafting goodies.

I use vintage drawers hung on the wall to hold more artwork and vintage finds.

Thank you for visiting me and my creative space.  Thank you Karen for hosting this wonderful blogging party!

As a special thank you for visiting, I would like to give one of my readers a chance to win this handcrafted soldered piece "Let's be friends again." 


Please leave a comment to be in the drawing for this giveaway.  I will be drawing the name of the lucky winner on Saturday, July 21st at 6 pm.

Now I am off to visit all the other bloggers creative spaces.

Love the tone of the walls and the whole feeling of your lovely studio. You have very nice storage spaces, my favourite is the solid wod counter tops and how you display your things on them.

The size of a creative space does not matter. The most important thing is to have a place, even a corner where we feel happy to sit here, creating according our soul.

Have a creative summer. Blessings and Bonjour de france !
