Beading, Home and Family


March 11, 2012

Today we unpacked the last of the boxes. There are a few more things to hang but the place finally looks and feels like home. And that feels really good.

I’ll share some more pics eventually, but I wanted to share one of the things I’m thrilled about: my new spot dedicated solely to jewelry making.


That was my original small computer desk from my 2006 move, and the tulip print was purchased back then as well to add some warmth to a cold and lonely white wall. The daisy photo is from Inventing Liz. And the stuffed cactus is McPedro from Girls with Slingshots. Add in my old desk lamp I used at the C-P (plenty of light at TNP) and some Play-Doh for inspiration and I have a mini-studio!

I’m just thrilled that I have a separate place to play “jewelry artist” at now. No more seed beads in my keyboard!

    Isn’t it great to have a little place all to yourself? I feel the same away about my bookshelf-turned-desk in the corner of the den. It’s mine. No interlopers. Leave me to write.

    Speaking of moving, Ann and I are now taking the thought of moving a bit more seriously. Too much (petty) garbage going on around the neighborhood and we’re tired of it. It’s blogworthy but…I’d rather keep it dark.

    Looks nice and cozy, hope the rest of the place is shaping up as well!

    And thank you so much for sharing this, it made me really happy to see my Daisy Chain photo on your desk…I’ve been thinking of calling it quits on the photo stuff, but seeing one of my photos “in action” so to speak has given me some new inspiration to keep going!
