My Studio



I love my creative space. I'm talkin' LOVE.

It's my escape.....my joy.....my link to sanity.




It's my favorite place to be, and I spend a lot of time here.




I do my creating at a large stand-up height table that my hubby built for me.
It makes it easier to move around the room to access my supplies, and
it's easier to see what I'm doing when looking straight down on it.





My sweet little (116 lb) Molly likes to keep me company.






My sweet, chippy, squeaky old chair is where I spend a lot of time, lost in blogland.








I love working with pretty papers, laces, ribbons, flowers, and bling.
And sewing with pretty fabrics and lace has become one of my favorite things to do.

Every day includes at least a small amount of time creating.







I love being surrounded by the beautiful creations I've received from friends,
as well as many of my supplies. It helps get my creative juices going.




I'm so happy you visited my studio today. I'm joining
Karen's 'Where Bloggers Create' party.

The party officially begins this Saturday, the 14th,
but I'm posting early because I'm taking off with my sister,
for a week of crafting at the cabin.


Check out Karen's blog for the list of other participants.



Have a sweet, creative week!

Welcome to our Cabin


I've been spending a lot of time at our cabin this summer,
and recently had a request from sweet friend Elyse, for some pics.

So, I took some this week.




At less than 800 square feet, our tiny cabin is located
in the beautiful hills of Midway, Utah.

It was built more than 40 years ago, by my hubby and his dad.




Several years ago, we inherited the cabin from his parents,
and have slowly been working at making it our own.




It is a hodgepodge of new pieces, old pieces, cast offs from home,
and anything else I think to add to the mix. And, we love it.




It's a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle
of everyday life and responsibilities.




There is no phone to ring, and no solicitors visit our door.





In a few days, one of my sisters and I are going back
for a week of jammies and crafting. I can't wait!!


I hope you will come back and see me, well, my blog,
this Saturday, the 14th for Karen's 'Where Bloggers Create' party.

I won't be home, but my post will be here. And when I get back,
I'll be visiting all those beautiful studios for inspiration.



Hope you're having a beautiful summer!
