"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" by Marianne Williamson

My Studio

A member of my Yahoo Group challenged us to show our studio/art area. So, welcome to mine. It still needs lots of work. I am still getting use to having an area of my own. I use to have the corner of our bedroom, now I have a whole room to myself. :)

This is a shelf I bought at a City Auction a few years ago. It holds my papers, stencils, markers (on the top shelf) and other stuff... You can also see my paper shredder here. It gets lots of use!

My desk. On top are binders, some books and my daughter's art (which is waiting for framing). On the shelf are my decorative scissors, punches, paper cutter, glue, tape, envelopes, Etsy binder, business cards and labels. The desk top has items that I've used recently. On each side of the desk I have tall shelves. The right side holds paints, photos and the shelf with the rock (4th from top) is used to press handmade papers. The left tall shelf holds finished handmade papers and paper scraps. On the wall next is my handmade paper drying shelf system. You can see that the walls of the room are painted. The room is "Finding Nemo" themed. I didn't repaint when we moved in...

I have a sewing desk (which currently holds my iron and ironing board for crayon paper) and a bookshelf with books and rubber stamps and inks. The boxes on the left hold paper scraps for handmade papers...

My closet.... I really want to update the storage system here. The right side holds paper scraps. The plastic bags hanging have my Etsy items (idea from Penny), the middle has crayons, embellishments, holiday items and the left (part you can't see) has a filing cabinet and a big box full of fibers...
My bead shelf and on the wall to the left, a paper sorter with paper sorted by color...
Welcome!!! :)
