The New Year Almost 1/12 Done ALREADY??!!!

I feel like the little girl on the right.  A new year is so exciting, but holy cow time sure flies by!  I've been working very hard on my studio space which had kind of stalled out in the finishing of it a couple of years ago.  It had become a glorified storage space instead of the beautiful shabby piece of heaven I had envisioned.  Mostly, we ran out of money.  Secondly, we ran out of steam/umph/getupandgo.  Too much on our plates I guess.  Anyway, I'm not one for making resolutions, but I did make a couple of promises to myself, one being that 2012 is the year that my creative space will be completed.  So, I have started. 

I have spent the last couple of weeks working on the one area that is honestly done-the storage closet.  OHNOSHEDIUNT, you are saying, but yes, I DID.  I am working on the closet.  It is turning out wonderfully.  My husband asked if I planned on living in there.  I laughed, but I think perhaps I might.  I can't wait to share photos with you.  I've gotten inspiration from lots of places out in Blogland and am trying to put them together in a way that is all me.  So far, so good.  I have a modular storage unit I got from Michael's put together and loaded up with my paper/mixed media supplies. Now I am waiting for DH to make some shelves on the other two walls for more storage.  I hope this happens sooner rather than later so I can finish up this part while I've got my momentum going.  Show and tell is on the horizon, I promise.

Until then, I leave you with all the positive energy I can send your way.  I'd love it if you could send me some good wishes for project completion SOON!

Pin It!

  3. I sure know how you feel, Can't wait to see it finished, have a great week


  4. I hope that energy reaches out to me! I'm at home today with the mid-winter crud. Can't talk and breathe at the same time and if I cough, I have to hold my sides because my ribs hurt...but my eyes work just fine so I can visit lots of blogs today. Am looking forward to some pictures, finished or not.♥♫

  5. Hi, my name is Heather! Please email me when you can, I have a question about your blog!


  6. Cannot wait to see it! Once you get started the momentum kicks in and away you go. That's what's happening to me and our family room. It was hard to get started but I am on a roll now. :)

  7. Hi Judy...sounds like you are on a roll...can't wait to see!

  8. Show and tell was one of my favorite parts of going to school!
    You show me yours and I'll show you mine...rooms that is!

  9. How exciting for you! I'm a new follower, so pardon my ignorance, but are you opening a shop or is this a home studio? I love my little 8x10 shed workshop at home (pics on earlier posts on my blog)! I love making mosaics and love French General! I went on one of the Chateau Getaway trips in 2010! So wonderful!

  10. This sounds so exciting, can't wait to see! You're going to be the talk of the town for where women create.
    Big hugs,
