Creative Juices...Let them flow!!!

I've decided to jump on board and be in the mix of the creative bloggers...even though I don't particularly feel creative at the moment. I have labeled myself a dabbler. I pretty much dabble in everything at some point, but at the moment have been enjoying painting furniture and cabinetry, and collecting art supplies that I hope I will use one day.
We moved to this house in late November last year, and I have only recently aquired a place that I feel comfortable enough in to call my office. It's actually the sunroom that was enclosed, it has lots of windows and air conditioning and it is very quiet. There is a lovely view of my huge back garden (which I adore and am afraid of all at the same time) and vegetable patch.
My creative moments include the following: spray painting, stamping, faux painting, sewing, jewelry making, baking, and blogging like a mad woman. With the advent of the Blog Guidebook and Beautify My Blog, I get busy in spurts, usually when I am busy with my baking business or when I'm refinishing the kitchen cabinets (post coming soon).
So hope you enjoy seeing my little corner of the world. The midwest "ain't" that bad in the spring and summer...I'm actually starting to enjoy my beautiful home.

  1. Great post, I need to photograph my creativity station. It moves around the house and I work out of a closet but it is my closet.

    Thanks for sharing, and Happy Party!!!

  19. You have a really nice studio. I don't think my family would let me take over our sun room. That would be fantastic to have lots of windows and a view of a garden. Thanks for sharing. Connie

  24. Hi Sarah! So glad to visit your creative space...I just love the blue furniture and the striped cushions on your reading chair. I'm surprised that you don't have your desk in front of the window in lieu of the sofa table...but maybe you'd be too distracted by the views in good weather and too cold in the winter months. I know how that is because we use to live in NH and it was brrrrrr...lol Your new space looks very spacious compared to last years as well. I don't know how you did it with three kids in 900 sq.ft. I'm whinning about 700 sq.ft. for me and DH here at the Love Shack...no more! But having limited spoace does make you more resourceful and picky about what you hold onto. We did the opposite of you and downsized twice in one year from 3,600 sq.ft. to 1,400 sq.ft. to now 700 sq.ft. I am glad to say that we are settled for good now and taking advantage of our time to travel and enjoy life. Hope you have a wonderful week! I'm trying to get through this life of WBC II and I think it is going to take all summer ;)
    Fondly, Roberta
