When I came across Karen's beautiful blog at My Desert Cottage, http://mydesertcottage.blogspot.com I was so inspired. As I read through her posts I saw she was hosting a "Where Bloggers Create" party on July 24th asking any and all that wanted to participate to jump right in and post and show their studios or work areas. Because I am fortunate enough to have a large area within my store, I knew I had to be part of the show and tell fun. Also, because a group of wonderfully talented women and myself have just this past weekend formed an Art Group to meet once a month using my store studio as our creating place, I knew this would be the opportune time to share what we are going to do as well as show my space. Our very first project is to ceate our own personal stool for around the table.....I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with as I know they are all going to be so very different.
The table is quite large and will accommodate up to ten people. The fabric skirts hide all my antique lamp parts, while the white armoire stores all of my paints and brushes. The shelves along the back wall handle my mixed media papers and supplies as well as my jewelry making supplies and anything else I get myself into. The table serves me very well for the outside work I do for people such as rewiring lamps, painting, and recovering small pieces of furnitures. The only problem I have is keeping it clean.......this is a special exception for the photo as there are generally at least four projects going on at one time. It may not be the prettiest of places, but it is definitely a place to create! Thank you, Karen, for planning this entire event.....I know I am going to love looking at all the other spaces out there and hope to get some wonderful ideas :)
