Calling fall~


It's beginning to look like fall in my creative space!! I'm still loving my dresser and apothecary style cabinet that I house my art supplies in. It's all in our dining room, so it's the perfect place to display my art and other goodies. I really enjoy changing the decor to fit the season. Here is what it looked like this summer. I just started getting out my boxes of Halloween stuff, so I thought I'd decorate this area first for some inspiration. The acordian style book in front is from a swap I hosted where we all did little mini Halloween quilties. I love the little book I created with mine! All of the artists pages can be seen here. This time of year my home is a mix of my two favorite styles in decorating and in art~vintage and primitive.


In other news, I've been asked by Fiona to join a group called Creative Journey. And we are doing just that. Everyone picks a theme and we are going to do all kinds of fun techniques together all working with our individual themes. We will post our work and progress and end products on the blog. I will also be posting here. I'm really excited and have chosen the concept of home. This can be interpreted so many different ways. Our first exercises to get us going was a mind map and to start gathering pictures and other items for inspiration for a design board. This is going to be so much fun!

I really admire all of your art collage work.

I don't know why . But, my workspace ends up a mess.
