Preview of New Studio Design

New Years Day found me organizing
my studio once again
New ideas
and
plans for the studio
all swimming around in my head
I've been collecting
on my treasure hunts
a lot and I mean a lot
of
home decor
mostly vintage and some not vintage
Feeling so happy that I find some many good pieces
and
most of it does get displayed in our home
and
some of it makes it's way to my Etsy shop
BUT
organizing it all
is maddening!

My studio is where I want to find calm
not messy crazy piles of decor!

I have finally organized my studio
to where I can find what I am looking for
and it is
a space to relax in
have coffee in
talk on the phone in
create in
this is just one corner
more reveal coming soon!

Christmas Ornament French Friday Giveaway Winner

Isn't this time of year wonderful?
🎄
I get the biggest kick
out of seeing
cars driving by
with their Christmas tree 
tied up on top!
I have been one busy bee....
December doesn't stop me from creating away! 
 Hand painting in a
"Patina Stone" 
has
become 
my 
obsession
Keeps me on the look out
for
pieces to paint
🎄
 I created these upcycled
scrap wood blocks
for our
Christmas fireplace mantel

I cannot wait to see what the new year brings

Now, about creating your own wrapping paper.....
I wrap a lot of small packages
so
this is wrapping paper
for small packages

I start out with images I've downloaded or scanned.
They can be scans or purchased images.
I print on 8.5 x 11 copy paper.
I bought these on Etsy
Some images I've altered
in
Windows Paint
Others are simply scanned & printed
using my printer / copier
While wrapping, you will notice
copy paper is a bit more thick
than normal wrapping paper.
But that's okay, it works!
I hope you've enjoyed today's post
and
thanks for stopping in
I'm still creating ornaments
for my Etsy shop
My shop will be open until December 12th.
We've started our
Christmas decorating
here at home
and
I will be sharing pictures
in my next post
 Happy December to you!
Share a little love today!
