Where Bloggers Create.... Studio Tour... I have a spot just for you!





Welcome Over!

        The bench.... it is an old mail sorting cupboard... with big metal "mail bag" hook and all!
I keep all my jewelry supplies & tools here... my paints,,,tapes,,, cards,,, pens,,, bookbinding stuff,,,inks.... well you get the idea... it holds a ton of stuff... easy to see & access!
And even thought I believe in "don't love things that can't love you back"

I LOVE this thing!


Space for more tape... that's good!

A bowl of bling... inspiration from kecia... who has 'bowls full"... oh my







 Just grab whatever you like to work with and we can get started!



 need a little inspiration?

Ah.... my wall of friends! 

I look up and think of them everyday...everyday they are here with me.





 Top row L - R .... Me, Jenny Wentworth, Misty Mawn
Second row ... Lyn Tivenan, Francesca Di Leo (3), Me, ?, Mindy Lacefield
Third row... Pam Kirshenbaum ( face ), collage box by me... artwork Courtney Blazon, Stephanie Lee, and Me ( Jesse Reno's Class)




We could paint or draw... play with plaster... or wax... or plaster and wax!





 Maybe we'll do this in the fall when you come back... cause it is really hot out right now

maybe too hot for wax!.










 Iroquois Beaded Bags... something about them... bliss 







 Horsefeathers... he goes where I go
Update... I've had a few emails asking about Horsefeathers... I created
him in a class with Stephanie Lee at Artfest.  She is a wonderful teacher
and offers many classes online and around... so check her out!




 Books... can you really make too many... I think not




My easel muse is wondering when I plan on getting "back to it"... soon!

I have room if you want to come over and paint with me!





 I missed participating in the blog hop last year... I was in the middle of this....'
My studio for the most part moved out of my home and into a new space.
It is a dream come true.  I love to create... I love creating more when I am with other folks....
so I have an open studio... open to the public 3 days a week... and we host classes. 
this is talc...my home away from home.














See... a spot just for you... so come back again when you can!

Now I'm off to see your Stuff!

Thanks for coming by!

Oh my! I wish I lived closer I would visit your studio 3 times a week. If you wake up one day and Mr. Horse Feathers has galloped away you might want to investigate me. You have made it so inviting. I will be back to visit again.

Kadee said...

I truly love your art space... the warm feeling in such an open space! What a dream come true to have have a place to offer visiting artists to come and teach! I clicked on your other site and would have died to take the bracelet class. In fact, I had signed up for that class at another venue but had to cancel. So I will keep my eyes open and maybe someday it will happen! Again, beautiful space .... beautiful photos... thanks for sharing!
