Hi everyone. I'm feeling much more human today! If you didn't get an email yesterday with the information about your partner for the mail swap please let me know. Lee sent them out and apparently some of your email programs didn't recognize her address and sent them to the junk mail. Just in case, here are the partners:
Sophie and Laura
Kate and Judie
Joyce and Mary
Carmelina and Gayle
Beth and Lisa
Annice and Little Messy Missy
Michelle and Pirk
Robyn and Lee
Mridula and me
Any questions just email me and I'll get back to you.
I'm going to give you another little sneak peek at my new studio. It's all finished and up and running although not much art got done in there yesterday. Mostly I just sat and read, watched a bit of TV, and finally went to bed around 11 last night. I was just a zombie!!
This is my main work area....
I covered my work table with brown paper again in anticipation of more art to come from it later on when it gets messy. Right now it's still clean! I have my big pink glass of ice water right there and the fan just in case it gets hot. My cutting mat looks like it needs to be replaced! I use it for everything and it has paint, glue, and who knows what, all over it. That piece of paper hanging on the shelf is an inspirational message that I like to read each day so I put it right in front where I'll see it.
This is just to the right of my work area. I have my CPS calendar and two of the dolls that have been sent to me. The blue doll at the top is from Lila and the white one is from Lisa. The little ATC near the top is from Doreen's grand daughter, Ebony. And the lion's head is from Brandy Gerber.
I like being able to display some of the beautiful things I've received from other bloggers. There are more items all around the studio....these are just a few. And in case you're wondering, that blue thing hanging from the shelf bracket is one of those bendable drawing tools. It's like a long ruler that bends. You can make curves or other shapes and draw along the edge of it....very handy.
Taking photos in this room is tricky. There is a big window right next to that display area in the picture above. I had to take about a million pictures to finally get some that were good. I tried closing the blinds but that made it too dark. I'm not a great photographer to begin with and throw in a bright window and I'm lost!
Now that you've seen my clean work area I'll get busy and mess it up!
Have some fun today....and smile at everyone!
