Here's to Life!

"It is only those who never do anything who never make mistakes."  A. Favre

The past few weeks I have been moving my studio from downstairs to upstairs. Girls, this is a move I have wanted for years but didn't feel right taking the space in such a prominent part of the house. I guess maybe I didn't feel like my little "hobby" was worthy to be smack in the middle of our everyday living space. However, from the first day Jackson and Dave carried my art table up the stairs and placed it in my new space I couldn't quit smiling!!

Seriously...I am still smiling:)
It is beautiful and perfect and it is all mine.

I am Home here.

Be sure and stop by Monday for a Tour!!!

Are you ready for Christmas?? I am not at all. Oh's coming fast!! I am feeling so very festive this year and am grateful. Even though our stress is still very high...Dave and I are looking at the bright side. All in all we are blessed and life is good.

Speaking of is a piece I was inspired to create a few weeks ago.

I rarely use red in my work...but I just LOVE this!!! And the circles and the buttons...oh and see how I worked my magic on the sides of the canvas, too??

I have to say this is one of my favorite pieces to date:)

I am looking forward to all the CREATING and INSPIRATION that will come out of me new space. It's a dream come true!!

Girls...please enter my 600 hundred post give way here. I will keep it open until Wednesday, December 19th. Tell your friends!!!

Have a festive weekend!! We are baking and decorating sugar cookies at Grams house Saturday...can't wait:)

  5. I can see why you would love that piece! I LOVE the red too - and YES - I am eager to see the new space too! And I have not done much of anything yet for Christmas - like, almost nothing! So different from normal years - I have to get on it - you're not alone :) xoxo

  6. Oh, my friend . . . I LOVE your space!!!!!! SOOOO MUCH!!!!! The biggest thing I miss in my current studio is the WINDOW (I'm I our basement . . .). i miss the natural light SO much. I am planning on starting the new year doing a total reorganization and revamp of my studio - it's quite a mess now after a busy fall of creating. This post is inspiring me so!! Hugs to you dear friend!!!
