I made a small creative nook at the very end of our horse barn looking out towards the woodlands. It's small and quite rustic but it's just perfect. . .for now.
It is here that I will work on my small projects while in the company of my equines and nature. My creative space, and probably the only one of its kind, is part of the second annual Where Bloggers Create party hosted by Karen Valentine at My Desert Cottage blog.
I'd love to hear if you stopped by here for a visit! Leave a comment so I can be sure to visit your creative space too!
Come on, I'll give you a tour.
This is my work space. Don't you just love the view? It will only be for the summer months and only for certain small projects as well as designing and planning.
I added some wall decor, a few things that make me happy-
women and children, sunshine and a quilt.
It's hard to dress up a horse barn. I had to keep it simple :)
I am working on small mixed media pieces, tiny faerie dolls and a hand-pieced wall hanging right now. I will only have the supplies I need for these projects in the barn. All other supplies are in the house in the basement, easily accessible, but I need natural light and looking at nature where I create, so I would rather work in this nook until I can build my creative space in the woodlands.
I keep small items in the cigar boxes and other favorite supplies close at hand.
I bought these pewter pieces at a yard sale and love using them for supplies. The acorn caps in the jars are for faerie hats.
I love to work with colored tissue paper.
To the left of my table I keep a few items on a sawhorse ( well, it IS a barn!)
A larger basket houses a few projects in the works and the red accordian folder is for art work and assorted papers. The paper mache bowl, made years ago by my youngest daughter, keeps yarn, wool roving and other fibers nearby.
And there's always a need for fresh flowers and tea.
My nook is just inside the barn so I have cover from the sun. But on those perfect days I can just as easily move the table even closer to nature. Ahhh, be still my heart :)
So this is where you might find me.. . bonding in the barn with my horses as I work on my art, dreaming of my future creative space nestled in the woodlands.
happy day and party on!
