New space

She was an artist and her life was her canvas.
I found this dresser today to store all of my art goodies:) I am so pleased. I have been looking for a while for something that looks nice, since my "studio" is our dining room, and is functional. This works perfectly. I will have a rotating display of my work on top of it. Here are several of my altered books. I finally finished the GROW letters that you see above on the ledge. I find the space very inspiring and practical at the same time. My husband looked at it and said, "that is so you." I love that! The quote above is from the book "She.." by Kobi Yamada. It was recommended to me by Heidi Swapp. It is what her whole "She" empire is based on. Wonderful stuff.

What an awesome find! It is great to find something that is nice on the eyes and is functional as well.

I should be finally done with week 2 pretty soon here. I haven't been too happy with it, but I think it is finally coming to fruition.

I am continually inspired by all your creativity. I have an idea for week 4, so I want to jump on that idea, before going to week 3.

Happy weekend!

Good for you! It's wonderful to be organized, especially in such a beautiful way. I don't have a dedicated craft space, so maybe I should consider getting some kind of chest of drawers :)

What a kool way to organize (out of sight)all your stuff and display too. You have inspired me to do a little organizing today.

Also, I finished and posted my "window" late late last night.

the Grow letters are amazing, so beautiful I've been thinking about doing some letters also, did you did them with no tutorial, or is there a tutorial somewhere ???? thanks
