It's time for another workshop.
There are a lot of positives about working from home.
For one thing I know that at least once a month my studio will be clean!
I don't think I've blogged about my studio in awhile, so get ready to be bombard with pictures.
My room is pretty much right in the center of the house which is good & bad.
Good because I can keep an eye on my kids, bad because it usually looks like a disaster.
See all this stuff?
Normally half of it is on the floor and the other half on my desk.
I almost sold this beautiful cabinet.
Then I realized it's the perfect place to hold some of my art & special gifts.
I collect old hand written school note books. Beth gave me the amazing one pictured above.
The binding is hand stitched and there is tissue between the pages to prevent smears.
It's filled with the most incredible drawings and text.
The black one is very special to me,
it was Carola's 1st grade writing journal.
Take a look at her penmanship!
I only buy the ones that have interesting subject matter, like the stitching examples and Grandmothers soap recipe.
That one was .25 at a garage sale:)
My studio is filled with reminders of friends I've met around the world.
Kristi brought me a souvenir from Round Top last year. A note from one of my favorite designers Carolyn Westbrook.
You can tell by her note she's not only insanely talented, but also very funny.
I'm a sucker for old books with engraved illustrations.
The sweet boys leather boots are a birthday gift from Dawn.
Pieces of our friendship are sprinkled throughout the room.
The photo on the left is my Grandfather as a young man in the Russian Army.
Well that was my studio at her finest.
If you live in the DFW area and want to see it for real,
have some laughs, and make something beautiful...
