Where I Create

For now, this will have to do.
I have company and I did not get a chance to update my post for Where Blogger's Create, so I am going
to show my post from last year when I missed the party because I killed the machine.

Thank you Karen for having such a lovely party.
Please stop by My Desert Cottage and visit all the creative bloggers and where they get their create on.

Let's get this PARTY started!

Seeing as I had all the extra non-computer time, I finished rearranging the room and fluffed a little more than it would have been last week.

This picture is what I see when I peak into my blog room.

This room is small, only 9x11, but I know how to pack a room with furniture and not make it too crowded.
This room is always full of light from three large windows.

To me it is just perfect!

This is the desk where everything is done.
I have everything within arms reach.

My favorite pin board for inspirations.
Collections of my father's paintings turned into Christmas cards from years past.

Some of my mirror collection and a chicken wire frame to hang important notices.

My favorite fairy Clara, named so because she looks like my grandma.
She dances above my head hanging from the light fixture.

Beautiful Hydrangeas from my gardens and a stray baseball that I simply can't seem to get away from.

Important message on the chalk board.
Stay cool by swimming and BACKUP the computer!

This cabinet stores a variety of china that I can not bare to part with but do not decorate with.
I also use it to store paper for the computer and school supplies for the kids.

I love the look of this topiary, who happens to be in need of a haircut.
Green and white my favorite color combination.

A simple secretary I bought at a garage sale and painted white last year. 
The drawers are packed with some of my craft supplies that I like to keep handy for when I get in the mood to create something.

I make sure to have plenty of buttons on hand.

This is the first slipcover that I made. 
I am glad to say that I have improved, but I love this couch.
It is a great place for the kids to come and chat with me while I am on the computer.

Now I am off to join the family for some early Sat. morning cartoons.

Thank you for stopping and visiting my blog room.
Make sure to close the door when you leave.

As said this post is from last year.
I will try to get my updated post up asap.
Thanks for stopping by.

  29. Cant tell from the pictures that its a small space, but that just shows one how it can be done. Beautiful, and I love also the combination of whites and greens.
