"WHERE BLOGGERS CREATE, II" HOSTED BY KAREN VALENTINE

This is my studio where I love to create. It is where I spend most of my time when I am at home. I have decorated my studio in my favorite style, which I call "Cottage Chic Victorian". It is a mixture of frills and lacey things such as decorated dress forms, a pale aqua sideboard with drawers full of supplies and adorned with some of the things I love on top. I think your studio should reflect the person you are and the things you treasure.  It makes creating so much easier when you are in a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere. So here is my studio space and some of the things I have made. I love to participate in art events and art swaps. I collect dress forms and have probably 25 throughout my home. I love to use them in my studio to display some of the beautiful tags, paper dolls, etc. that I have received from fellow swappers. It is just incredible to me to have found so many amazing & talented people in this world and to be able to share the creative blood with them. I am still working on adding shelves in my studio but I have not yet found exactly what I am looking for!! When I do, I will share it with you. Thanks for visiting me here in my office...it was my pleasure to share it with you!!
