The Heart of My Studio

This week I stumbled across the blog called Studio Friday. I thought it had something to do with San Francisco at first - with multiple references to SF (which is what the locals call this town).

Turns out it is in Canada, eh?! Land of my birth. So every Friday, bloggers can post links to something connected to the topic of the week. So here I am playing along.

The topic this week is the Heart of Your Studio. Well i'd have to say that is my pretty desk. It is where all the action happens and from where i create some beautiful things. Here is a genuine unretouched photo of my desk - the center of the altered art action. As always piled high with crap, er, um, I mean, precious treasures.
Here is the same desk in the "before" picture - from when my craft studio was a tidy adorable guest room and the desk served as a vanity table. Too few visitors rendered it a waste of precious space and thus began the conversion to full fledged art studio, with wall to wall shelving and storage. I'll post some pictures of the space as soon as I clean up. Whenever that is.....!
Here is the link to the SF Blog:

I did the same thing-- turned a little-used guest room into a place for arts and crafts, that is. It's great to finally have so much room to stretch out in! (It's also amazing how the clutter spreads to fill the whole space, no matter what size it is. (g))

I love that you actually work at your pretty vanity/desk. :o) I have one (not in the studio, though), but I don't think I've ever actually sat at it. It just takes up room.(g)

I love the use of ribbon and bows as handles... Might not be the most comfortable and practical idea but sure is pretty...
More beauty to the world!

Such a pretty space! Reminds me I have been meaning to be kinder to my own inner girly-girl and let her out once in a while. She loves your desk!
