Good Sunday Morning, My Friends!~~~
The fabulous Brenda over at her lovely blog has posted pics of where some of the creative ladies in blogland create! I just love seeing other's studio and creative spaces, don't you?
At her sweet request I sent her a few pictures of my studio. I posted an entry about my creative space over a year ago, but I thought you might like a little update.
Here is my desk and chair. As you can see the walls of my office/studio are my favorie shade of green. My space is in the basement of our home. The hallway leading to my office is lined with shelves stacked to the rafters with fabric! I am actually sitting in this chair right now! You can alco see the corner of my comfy chair which is used mostly by the cat or my son.
This is the inspiration board that sits to my left. It is jam packed with lots of fun stuff! I just can't bring myself to edit this fabulous chaos!
This is the view from my desk chair. I have a Dwight SHrute bobblehead given to me by my hubby. The Office is our favorite show! I also have a Teddy Roosevelt bobblehead. Yes, you read that right. Teddy is from the Washington Nationals baseball team--he's one of four presidential mascots. And speaking of presidents, the gentleman on my TV screen is John Adams as played by Paul Giamatti. I am currrently obsessed with the John Adams series. I read the book and couldn't wait to get the DVD. Also there are a great deal of books on my shelves. I am a writer of historical romance (one book published) and I need research materials at my beck and call. The framed photos of the familiar, to some of you, men serve as "inspiration" for that aspect of my life.
On the opposite side of the room from my desk is my sewing table. My dear grandmother owned this table and I am honored and inspired to inherit it from her. Also I have an autographed poster from The Proclaimers, one of my favorite bands, as well as a framed cover of my first book on the wall. Stacks of ribbon, baskets of fat quarters, cigar boxes full of buttons, and more and more stuff to use in my creation--it never ends, thank goodness! The "cakes" tin was a thrift store find, and it conceals my business cards and extra thread.
Thanks for taking my little tour! Be sure to visit Brenda's Blog for more pics of other lovely creative spaces!~~~In my next post I'll tell how this week, lightning struck me three times! Let's just say that the gods of the random number generators have been so very very good to me!~~~Have a fabulous Sunday!~~~XXOO, Beth
