she is storing all of her stuff in one of those POD storage things.
Because those things get hot, she decided that she didn't want to have all her art supplies get ruined and that she should give most of it away.
The thing was that my own studio was kind of bursting...
After three long days, two full garbage bags, five bags of art goodies for friends, two boxes of art supplies that need to go to a classroom somewhere, two large bins of fabric that are now in another room and about $50.00 in plastic storage containers from Walmart
The inside of the armoire - everything organized, paper on top according to colors, and no avalanches in sight !
Instead of junk piled on it, I have inspiring things
Like my newest addition,
and a secondary place where I can set up the sewing machine or do jewelry making or even have a friend over...
Even the Computer desk got a bit of a purge and a tidy...
It all feels so wonderful to have a place for everything and have everything in its place.
I know it won't stay like this for too long but it is fun to jump into a summer of creative fun with this clean space just for me to play in !
Speaking of creative fun...
a little while ago, the lovely Deb from what's deb doing asked me for a 5x7 print of the
"Leaves of my Heart" piece I had done.
I sent it to her as a gift, and in return she sent me this gorgeous hand-made creation :
It is a lovely banner of flags made from bits of soft and sweet vintage fabrics.
Deb also embroidered words on extra bits and added them to the flags.
So pretty and so feminine. I loved it !
I though maybe it should go in my studio
but then I realized that the colors, the mood and the words fit perfectly into my other sanctuary
in my house..
I hung the banner over two of the four windows that make up our bay window...
See how perfectly it works with the lovely bright flowers of my Pottery Barn duvet cover ?
I slept well last night with the words "breathe", "bliss", "allow" and "relax" hanging above me...
Little Boo says he likes the new addition to his window just fine too !
Thank you for your gift and your sweet friendship, Beautiful Deb.
Time to go put all those glorious and organized art supplies to work !
Happy Sunday, Beautiful Ones !
