Studio Day with Trina Lee

Hello hello! How is everyone? Goodness, I can't believe it's almost Christmas! I've been busy preparing for family guests coming in from out of town but you know me...I always sneak in some time in the studio! ;)

Recently, I invited my dear friend, Trina Lee over for a little chat! She's an amazing human being and I just had to share her gifts with you. Trina is an EFT practitioner who has helped me with my creative journey in ways I could never have imagined!

Why don't you go ahead grab yourself a cup of tea and hang out with us for a bit, so you can get to know her better...oh and p.s. we also will be talking about a fantastic creative Art retreat that we are collaborating on too! So excited... [vimeo 149033011 w=500 h=281]

Isn't she just lovely!? I hope you will visit her on her website.

As promised, here is the wonderful, guided creative meditation that she created just for us! I highly recommend trying this! I am using it regularly before I make art and I love it!

Home office makeover

For the past 48 hours, we've been hard at work redoing my home office...or as I like to lovingly refer to it - my studio. For months, I had put off re-designing it. Not really sure why? I think  I was scared I would make a mistake but finally I worked up the courage and tackled it. Chris devoted some of our budget to it and voila - a NEW creative space for Grace & I!!! Check it out... Now Grace and I have a space to craft together. She loves her new "big girl" table!

The decor is a blend of new pieces from Ikea and old items I've collected from various antique and thrift stores.  I like the contrast between the clean white lines and the imperfection of the found objects.

Now this room feels like me!

Do you have a special place in your home where you create?

Have a beautiful Wednesday!

xo,

p.s. Don't forget...we are off to Greece on Wednesday! If you missed our other "trips" catch up here and here.
