Aren't the walls the ugliest color on earth? yuck. And then the brown doors and trim and blinds...yikes...really dark. It really makes me nuts...But, then I remember it is only temporary and I'm REALLY so grateful for the space. REALLY! So I filled one wall with art. Lots of beauties from Jake, framed paper puppets from the redroostercraft etsy shop...ADORE them. Prints from Studio Spiral and Debbie Egizio. Little birdie art by CourtneyP. And 2 prints that we bought in San Francisco on our honeymoon.
My sweet little cabinet, seen above, holds more treasures and a collection of loved Halloween ladies who stay out all year.
close up of my little display case with bits and pieces of things I love. Stamp artwork by my favorite resident artist...my son Jake. Gorgeous little print by The Brilliant Magpie, little houses and heart by surprise, delight, joy, monoprint doll ornament by Cathy Cullis, a little swatch of Jake's baby outfit, loved photos...
this is where I sit at my desk and paint and talk to you guys:) Hi! I have my printer, scanner, paints and paper all at my fingertips. The TV is for my little buddies when they want to lounge in my room on the little yellow couch...and sometimes (when I don't have my music playing) I like to have it on as background noise. Those Top Chef marathons are good to work to! Who knew!?!
my little vintage black shelves over my computer display some of my early dolls, a sweet dollie by Fat Jak Originals, more photos and little white drawers filled with things I use and like to look at.
I turned the room's closet into my shipping headquarters;) I store my canvases and other mass quantities of supplies on the shelves. Lots of frames and wooden plaques waiting to be painted. a whole shelf of vintage photos and books. more art books and magazines for inspiration. I tucked my little white vintage desk in there for a wrapping surface...all my ribbons and such are tucked into stackable drawers just out of the shot. It is so nice to have everything you need within reach!!
mail sorters make great stickers and cards and packing labels storage!!Well, that's about it! Hope you guys enjoyed the tour:) Thanks for stopping by. Happy organizing!
