An inspirational creative space just for Me

Karen Valentine's blog, Desert Cottage,is hosting... Where Bloggers Create. This has been a Yearly party that has a large following of women who love to look at spaces to create in.Many ideas from all types of artistic spaces and the Ladies that own them.Please join Us.   Now for My much treasured comfy room.
 It's a medium size extra bedroom.It's turned out over the Years to be all Mine, except My Husband of 39 Years does sit in the recliner to go on the computer and He's more than welcomed.

From long ago to honor Him in His own Home I did leave His Crash Corrigan signed photo,the cowboy.It is though sourrounded by girly artsy  decor.
 My Husband did give Me His fishing box to keep portable supplies in.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             I made this magical mirror below to step into many magical forests.See the forest peeking out or leading Me into it and I always can grab a paintbrush as I enter.

 The light was so pretty as I took photos of My bookshelf.
 My dearly loved Grandchildren are in this room for easy to remember thankfulness and prayer needs for them. On the opposite wall My ancestors keep Me company too. (photo below)

 The Italians,Germans and Irish that sent prayers up for Me and gave My Mother and Father all kinds of love.Last but not least the last photo is of My recent collection of matching Bible study planner and case, prayer notebook, illustrated journal Bible,and a Tea Time coloring book.Thank You Jesus for My blessings.I ALWAYS have to remind Myself that even though We are not financially rich, We are so blessed.Thank You for reading My blog.My blog as I've recently said is dying off after 6 Years of being an enjoyment to Me. If You feel We could be kindred spirits and have a lot in common, I would love for You to follow Me,and I will follow You.Blessings and Hugs-Denise                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  PS.  One last look at My art desk.  I'm so happy I started doing MUCH MORE art after My last left Home many Years ago now.

What a gorgeous room - and how wonderful to have this beautiful creative space, too. You have so many pretty things and I love all your past and present family as inspiration.

I love that you have a chair in your space for your husband! I want to put one in my space too (but I don't think a recliner would fit!)

Debbie Harris said...

Denise, your creative space is lovely, so organized and as neat as a pin.
The photo you took of your book shelf with the lighting is awesome.
I love that you have pictures of your grand children to look at and pray for.

Have a beautiful weekend~~

I loved your studio tour, Denise! What a lovely idea for a blog posting! I may have to do this on my blog, too. One of my favorite things in your studio is your magic mirror. So cool. So imaginative. Have a most blessed and abundant day in your lovely studio!

Doni said...

I love your space Denise! The ribbon holder with your grandchildren is a beautiful idea! I miss my windows! That lighting is beautiful! So glad you joined the party! Thank you for sharing your space! Hugs! Doni

Loving your Ancestor Tribute Wall in your Creative Sanctuary. I do Hope your Blog doesn't die off, I have found Blogging now isn't as popular as it once was, but I still enjoy Creating mine and reading the Blogs of others, this is a Wonderful Community of Souls and I've made many Blog Friends, some of which I was Blessed to have also now met in person! Since I began my Blog Journey entirely for Self Expression it was just a Bonus to find that others took any interest in it. I suppose the same can be said for Art sometimes, I began Creating to Feed my own Soul and others just happened to Enjoy it, which was a pleasant unexpected Bonus to Creating it! Thank you for inviting us in to spend time in your Creative Sanctuary and it is good that your DH enjoys being in the space as well, I often Share mine with The G-Kid Force... Okay, in Reality they practically took it over! *winks* Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

A beautiful and holy space! I love that you have pictures of your family and ancestors to pray for, what a beautiful way to spend time while creating. I love all sorts of crafts and bible journaling and adult coloring are among my favorite pleasures. Thank you for the peek into your space. I hope you will keep blogging.

Karen Valentine said...

Hi Denise!! Thank you so much for joining the party again this year! I love that hubby has a chair in there! Sometimes I wish mine could come and hang out with me. :) Your studio is lovely and I'm sure is full of many happy memories.

Diana Seal said...

lovely space-thanks for sharing. My room is such a wreck right now (re-organizing that if my husband starts to walk in, i tell him not to-he would probably break his neck) :)

Cathy said...

Wow, your craft room is lovely! Looks so bright and welcoming. I love how everything is organized and displayed. And keeping photos of your grandchildren right there is very sweet.

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
