It soothes me to be surrounded by things that I love...rubber stamps, art books, decorative objects, and my attempts at art.
I keep moving supplies around in an effort to find the best arrangement.
You may remember this memo board from my February 23, 2011, treasure hunting entry. I have been checking on it periodically at the antique mall. Since it wasn't an antique and not even a window frame like I first thought, I thought it was priced way too high. At the end of March 2012 I gave in and considered buying due to a 20% off sale. As I was looking at it, the booth owner kindly knocked off a few more dollars. Now that it's in my "studio" space, I prefer it without memos. Bare it reminds me of a cathedral window.
Now to muster up a bit of courage and create on that blank canvas.
