Little Wall Big Impact

Seems like the weeks are rolling by and school will be out next week here in Houston! I haven't posted in awhile because I have been sick with Thyroid problems. That little butterfly shaped gland in the lower part of our neck is really giving me a hard time. I think I am on the road to recovery and my doctor tells me (with my medicine) I should be my nutty self in about six weeks. Yay! for that.



I have had some changes in my home which have affected my workspace. With the help of my wonderful husband my studio has changed from one side of my home to the other. At first I was not the happiest girl but I have come to like it more in its new location (I am blessed that I can even have my own studio at home so no gripes here!) Anyhoo, I am in the process of painting and arranging everything, plus I have pictures to share later.

The picture above is the little wall outside my studio doorway. I have been collecting "J" for years but decided to put only a few of them up.

This is the "J" I made using some old colored pencils I had. I got the idea to do this from the magazine Creating Keepsakes which had photo's of Ali Edwards workspace in it. I can't remember what issue it was in but I do know it's been years and years ago. If I remember correctly a friend made her an "A" and I loved it so much I just had to make one for myself.

I love the colored pencil "J". I just may have to make a "K" someday. How fabulous.
