You just gotta love this creative Minnesota girl  ... I'm Thankful to Linda for sharing her inspiring story here on Sunday Spaces ... 

I am fortunate to have a dedicated space in my home to create. It is a lovely room that overlooks our backyard garden. My studio is my work room, my creative space and my retreat. Because I am a collage artist I have a lot of "stuff". A couple years ago at the Junk Bonanza (www.junkbonanza.com) I found a collage artist's dream cabinet; a twenty-eight drawer beauty from a school mail room! Thus began the start of the "organization" in my current studio which, as most of you artists know, is an on-going process and a challenge. I would like to say that it is always tidy with everything in it's place, but I would be lying. Hey, a cabinet can only do "so" much. 


My art is inspired by nature and the beauty that surrounds us in simple everyday objects and sights. Using leaves, feathers, stamps and other ephemera I create art that usually hints of my love for Asian treasures and icons. (In fact my logo is a chop of my name I had made while visiting Hong Kong) I enjoy combining textures and objects and stitching them into place.

I have always loved quotes and include a message; visible, invisible or simply wished to every piece I create. I hope my art and it’s message will be a blessing, encouragement or inspiration to the person who receives it.

I enjoy creating print and pattern, doing collage, dying fabrics, stitching, making jewelry, taking photos, gardening and making art and fun with my little granddaughters.

  $5 Inspired Studios Magazine is here! Inspirations come and Inspirations go, then inspirations linger in our spirit, untouchable, by the outside world and we press on. Others call us crazy, but we press on. We ourselves, understand it not ... but we press on. Inspired Studios Magazine; shares stories of pressing on in our visions, that none can see.  I have a theory, about GOD, abundance and the gift of inspiration, it goes something like this ... GOD passes out inspiration, like Santa throwing candy at a Christmas Parade. Some children run, and grab the sweet stuff, eat it, before a parent can say no. Some, stand on the sidewalk wishing, they had the courage to step off the curb and grab it. And, then, there are the children, who quietly grab, themselves some candy, slip it, into their pockets, planning to unwrap it later, when they can  enjoy it's sweetness, it's flavor and it's bite. A Facebook post  this past Spring, led me to Seth Godin's post about the fut
