Last week we cleared our junk room to host some dear friends who were in town from Michigan, and the guest room without guests in it, is our new family studio. If you can imagine, the room was stacked with boxes and toys and outgrown clothes and craft supplies from wall to wall waist-high just over a week ago, and now we have a clean studio space!
|Guest room from the door that we were unable to fully open a week ago. The towels and blankets (on the shelf) will return to the linen closet in the hall until we are expecting guests.|
|View looking back toward the door (to the left out of view) and curtained closet. The toys and books on the shelf were just a couple things to help our mini overnight guest feel at home.|
|A big open wall and a couple pop-arty pictures to hang on a wall somewhere.|
I already have little piles of in-progress work toward the goal of breathing life into our studio space.
In addition to reading and enjoying Mariah's book, I have registered for her Playful Learning E-course, which should help fuel and direct my aspirations for our studio and our home. She has a beautiful studio in her own home, and it has been a major source of hope/inspiration to me in the past year since I discovered her website and blog: playfullearning.net Here is a video trailer for the e-course, in case you might be interested in joining... I'm already in, so say the word and we can be buddies in this process. I hope to share some of my work for the course here on the blog!
