My Creative Studio

Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be showing you different projects that I have completed for my "creative studio" but I thought I might better explain what the creative studio is first! 

We have a spare room in our house and when we moved in J pretty much gave me free range of the room saying we could do whatever with it. We knew it needed to be a partial office and house the computer but I also thought it would be a great place to store my craft supplies and have my own place to craft. 

But calling the room an office sounded blah and calling it a craft room sounded blah too so I came up with "creative studio. Just perfect because if I'm crafting Im obviously being creative and a lot of times when I'm on the computer I'm creating by writing so it works or maybe using my Silhouette. 

My fave color is teal and it is already in multiple rooms in our house so I was trying to NOT use teal in the creative studio. I started going with pink and green but hadn't done very much at all. But the more I looked at the little bit of pink and green in there, the more I realized it just was NOT me. I wasn't being true to who I am, what I like, and what my style has become. So I have decided to go with teal, black, and white. I was totally inspired by this room  and have decided on using different black and white patterns along with teal. I've been working on some of the smaller things like a bulletin board and frames. I'll be sharing those things as I complete them. 

This is a little a snippet of what I'm working with and where I'm going

I am excited to get the room decorated and organized so I can begin creating things for holiday craft fairs!

  1. Yes. Teal is much more you...and if you can't be true to who you are in your creative studio, then how can you create things that are true to you? :-) I'm looking forward to seeing pics!
