setting up my new studio has been so much fun....especially now that i have space to put out all of the things that make me happy and keep me inspired! my picture ledges from ikea hold favorite artwork created by many of you (i'm slowly but surely building up a wonderful collection!). this ledge is holding artwork (left to right) from my friend judith leitch, "scatter joy" by kathy davis, the sweet little yo-yo sent to me from carol sloan, a fabulous "happy journey" print by julie king, and a beautiful piece of original brush calligraphy by eliza holliday.
my other picture ledge is showcasing (from left to right) one of my favorite diane duda prints, a calligraphy piece that i made for my little dutch boy, a happy print from the very sweet jenn over at noodle and lou, and a canvas that i painted via karen gartel at altered diva workshops.
these two little goodies are perched above my peg board....i just love to look up and see this colorful "nourish" mosaic that chrissie grace created.....and then there's the fabulous "go in the direction of your dreams" card that the very talented paper artist jen over at colorfly studio surprised me with one day!
and one huge source of inspiration in setting up my studio came from my sweet friend gina lee kim.....she was so kind to share photos of her incredible studio space and i just went nuts when i saw it! if you haven't already seen it, treat yourself to some studio eye candy here!
