My Studio

I'm participating in the 'Where Bloggers Create' blog party hosted by Karen at My Desert Cottage.



Since we are leaving town for a few days, my post is going up early.



So...grab a cold drink and get comfy. My studio is my Favorite room, so this is a looong post.



I like things neat and tidy, it helps me to be inspired to create. But, you will notice that I am Not a 'less is more person'.



I love to be surrounded by things that I love....and of course, things that are Pink!




My cabinets sit stacked on the floor, and house my children's scrapbooks, and misc supplies.








My room is very small, so I use every possible space.












This is where I do my creating. My husband built my pink table for me, it is 3' x 5'6". It is also counter height because I do everything standing up.
















This is supplies inside my cabinets, and my paper racks that hubby built for me.



When it comes to creating, I am first and foremost, a scrapbooker. Preserving family memories is very important to me.




My dresser, that I LOVE, houses some of my fabric.




The long rack, upper left, holds my stamp pads.








And, this is my little computer corner, where I spend *too much* time blogging. Hey, I told you I'm not a 'less is more person'. When I love something, I spend lots of time on it.





Go on over to Karen's blog and check out all the other creative spaces.

Holy Moley!!! that is just to die for! Lock me in your room, deliver food and I will see you in a year!!! I would become a hermit, crafty hermit...
