welcome in!

my studio
both workspaces and the chair are from IKEA

it's only taken me forever and a half, but i finally have photos of my studio (in a decent state, ahem) to share with you! i've been a cleaning up a storm the last few days in preparation for my sister and her boyfriend coming into town for thanksgiving. this is their first time visiting us here so i knew i wanted to have everything cleaned up for a little tour. and this way you have plenty of eye candy to enjoy as i step away from the blog for a few days to enjoy thanksgiving and their visit.

my studio—details

if we stay in this apartment any longer, i would really like to paint and i am also working out how i might move things around to accomodate a lightbox set-up...we'll see. i know i'm a very lucky girl to have a room like this of my very own so i've got to work with it and not whine about wanting more space!

inspiration in my workroom

my inspiration board...ha, what can i say? my interests and inspirations are all over the board....mmm literally and figuratively. i didn't intend to make such an old man joke right there, these things just happen every now and then you know?

well, i better run. today i am making the cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, apple pie, rye bread, chocolate hazelnut ice cream, deviled eggs, and marshallows all from scratch to make tomorrow's feast prep a bit easier. by the time my husband gets home from work and our guests pull in the drive-way tonight, i am so going to be ready to collapse! the happy kind of collapsing though where you are surrounded by loved ones and the knowledge that soon you'll be feasting and having a very lovelyquietcozytime, enjoying doing not much of anything, and reflecting on all that we are grateful for.

i hope you have the same and will see you back here in a few!

Lovely post and great work space you have...I'm jealous! I used to have my own space but then my daughter moved back in...bye bye sewing room. :-( Oh well...such is life.

Enjoy all your prep today...I'm doing the same thing, to make tomorrow much more enjoyable!

Have a wonderful visit and Thanksgiving!

Ooooh looks awesome! I wish mine was as nice... maybe I'd actually spend some time in there >_>

that is a great work space you have there! My space is a corner of the couch with yarn taking over the rest of it!
Sounds like you will have a yummy and fun time with family! Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi love! Will you come with your obsessive compulsiveness and clean and color and characterify my work space? You can also take out the dead mouse that I just can't bear to take out of the trap (hence, I'm writing my credo paper in the dining room, not the office).

On another note, I need your phone number. I miss you!

I love seeing other's work spaces! I only dream of having a lovely space of my own some day. Mine is disaterous and I don't have enough room for all my ideas! Yours looks great though :) Bright and cheery.
