Studio Tour

 Whenever you are sincerely pleased, you are nourished.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Over a month ago I decided to move my studio. It had been in a perfectly fine spot in our finished basement...but I never really felt at home there. I wanted someplace cozy with lots of sunlight pouring in.

Thanksgiving weekend my amazing husband, son and I moved everything out of the new space and brought all  my furniture and supplies up the two flights of stairs to my new was quite the mess...:)

I thought this process would never end!! I couldn't believe how much stuff was crammed in this space!!!

This was our computer room/Em's sewing room/catch-all room.

I had so much JUNK crammed in this closet!! It was such a shame we had used one of my favorite rooms in the house as a dumping room!!!

This part of the process took longer than I would have liked. But after a few week of sorting and tossing it was time to bring in all my art supplies!!! Creative Chaos!!!

I literally would just bring my supplies upstairs and dump them in the room...I wanted everything up before I started sorting and putting away.

Finally...just yesterday...I put the finishing touches on my space and I am ready to show you....

My NEW Studio!!!!!


Can you see how the beaufitul sunshine just pours in??!!!

Here are the gorgeous windows and window seat!! I love the view from my new space, too...a few houses and a corn field.

All paints. Aren't they pretty??

My inspiration board...

My bookshelf...filled with creative ideas and my Scriptures as well as a special gift from my cousin:)

All my Somerset Magazines!!

My desk where I can write letters, write blog posts and read my Scriptures.

My Brave Art.

That's my favorite photo of myself!! I was 4 years old:)

The art is from a dear friend.

My inspiration wall!!!

A place for paper and other goodies.

A photo of me at my bravest...running my first marathon in Alaska!!

My favorite place for stamps and ink.

I LOVE my art counter my darling husband bought me years ago. One of the best parts about it is the place I can put photos of my family!!

These are all people that mean so much to me.

My workspace...

Yes, I usually stand when I work.

My view while I work inspires me so much!!

The corner cabinet I've had since I was 3 years old.

My closet is now a place for more supplies...

One more look....

I LOVE my new studio!!! I plan on creating more Brave Art here than ever before. I hope you have enjoyed my studio tour!!

  5. I absolutely love your new studio! I've been trying to organize a space upstairs in our house too, one with a lot of natural light. I've been working down in the basement and it's just not bright enough at this time of year! It's proving to be a lot of work moving all my "stuff" around so I appreciate how much effort went in to yours! Job well done and I'm sure you'll have many happy hours "arting" there! -- Tina
