My Refuge

Sure is quiet around here.

You see, I've been spending the majority of my time working on redecorating my craft room. As a matter of fact, I no longer refer to it as my "craft room". I have dubbed it my "art studio", perhaps to give me incentive to actually create some art in there... other than home made cards, that is.

Anyway, when daughter and I switched rooms last Fall, I decided it was time to not just pile all my crap, er V.I.S. (Very Important Stuff) in there, but to actually decorate it too. Since I was beginning to collect some vintage and antique items, my "Art Studio" has gradually transformed into a "Victorian Studio" and I love it! If you want to see a few pictures, click on over... in July there will be a post with a complete reveal slideshow.

Now that I have my own TV and couch, gone are the days of helplessly watching hubby channel-surf. I can watch whatever I want, whenever I want! (and so can he without my comments about Controlling the Remote Control). Or I can simply listen to it whilst actually creating something at my desk.

Yep. I have finally finished my refuge; my very own place to relax, create and even indulge in a snack or two.

Although that latter task has it's hazards. It seems the cats and dog still knew where to find me (and my snacks):

Those eyes look familiar! (Why do they always find us and our snacks??) I would love to redo our junk room/guest room/scrapbook room that is now a hodge podge of colors, styles and generally a big ole mess and have a beautiful, coordinated, classy ART STUDIO. One day!! :)

Well, I had one once. It's now the cat room! My hobbies are pretty much non existent lately, aside from trying to write a book.

My craft room looks like a bomb exploded. There just isn't room to organize like i'd like to, this being a rental home and all. Someday!

Cats and dog are not there for your snacks, they have something to say about how you use the remote control.

Maybe you should keep a jar of freeze-dried chicken liver treats in that room. Just sayin'.

OH Heather... I to once had a hodge-podge of storage and no real "theme" per se for many years. I was finally inspired by so many other rooms that I finally settled on my antique room. And it's taken nearly a year to complete. But I love spending time here now.

Babs! You are writing a book! Fab! You must let me know when it is done; I shall need to order an autographed copy ;)

Ah, Jo-Jo. Yes, with rentals it's a different story indeed. I am very lucky to be able to paint what I want and put up what I want.

Ahahahaha! Bart, you are hilarious! (and probably right!)

Oh Daisy, yes, I guess I should!

Sweet! I love your pets!!! Thanks for your comment on my Where Bloggers Create post. I'm in B.C. a stone's throw from the Rocky Mountains - I definitely need a heater for the winter months in that shed! :)

Have a fabulous day. I'm your newest follower.
