I try not to look...

Come to the land of make believe with me.
The land where my house suddenly sprouts
a room addition. In that room addition is
cheerful, organized happiness.

In my dreams I sew here.
I iron here.



I blog here.
I am the most organized person ever here.


I arrange peonies fresh from my garden here.
I create magic here.

One day...
until then, my perfect studio is being created in my imagination.
It is amazing.
I can't wait for you to see it.

  3. Ok... I could have gone the rest of the day without measuring my belly (ugh) and I could have gone the rest of the day without seeing these amazing pictures (jealous). Even in my dreams I couldn't come up with such wonderful places. Lucky, lucky people.

  15. That's my exact dream studio too - get out! LOL

    I also have the craft crap strew all over the dining room table and in baskets/boxes piled haphazardly in front pf the TV in the living room.

    At this point, I just wish I had a set of SHELVES. Or anything really...

  16. This may sound cheesy but no matter what state your workspace is in - whether you have one or not, as long as those creations are an act of love from you - it's all that matters. And I know you make EVERYTHING with lots and lots of love (remember those aprons you made for my preschool teachers?)!

  26. Oh to dream....I too dream of similar things although my dream is more geared toward a washing machine that loads itself and then transfers the clothes into a dryer and then the dryer folds them and puts them away. One day I hope...One day....

  38. That is where my perfect studio is too. I wish I had an extra room and it looked like any of these you showed here. Alas, all I have is a dark room in the basement and it's filled with storage and it doesn't look like I will be able to get to paint and fix it up this summer. Oh, well, back to imagining.
