Studio








Welcome to my studio! I'm a girl in transition, currently I'm busy designing magazines, logos, and graphics while finding my writing voice via blogging here and there. This is where I work everyday. It's less than 250 sq. feet and I call it my little shed to studio conversion. I took this space hostage in 2009 for a birthday present to myself. I rescued it from the bikes, lawn equipment and other nameless useless, stuff. I chose this space because it is outside of our home and as a single Mother, it's a bit easier to stop and start work, with the ease of locking a door for the evening or day. 


and then there was light ... These doors, came much later for so much less than FREE and they are my favorite joy in this little space. I also love how this little work space is close to the laundry in the garage, just in case, I need to get a load done while working on a project or two.

This is my over sized inspiration board, I made it from soundboard found at Lowe's, It measures four feet wide by eight feet long. You gotta just love it, when a project like this comes together.


This is computer center. It takes me two apple computers and one PC laptop to create a magazine, you never know, when your trusty mac, might just lock up caused you failed to keep your desktop clean.


I am a lover of all things textile and this antique Bolivian poncho hangs behind my desk.  Such a nice jolt of color first thing in the AM.

This is the art side of the studio , with a very large and very tall work table. I'm more productive when I'm standing
.

I got really board with my bookshelves, this past spring and covered the backs with oil cloth.

This is message and quick file central.
 

Then it's back outside to the house for more coffee!

Good things and not so good things somethings come together. In 2003 I was finally diagnosed with  thyroid cancer . I say finally because I was sick for 10 months, constant choking and coughing all night long before I found my cancer. ~ okay, side-bar for a quick cancer story....  I was sick, and first we thought it was a virus, then maybe  bronchitis , then maybe an allergy, I coughed and coughed, I couldn't sleep. I coughed so hard, I broke two rib

Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

... re posted from bloggingrevelations.com - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
