My favorite place in the house!

I finally took some pictures of the new studio! It used to be Ava and Carmen's walls and butterflies:) I like pink so it is fine for now until I have the energy to paint. Enter the Studio..............
I love being upstairs because there is so much light! I still use the big work lights for more lighting though! The big armoir is one of favorite things. It used to be Corrina's, but now that she has a different bedroom, she has the biggest closet in the house.
This is where I keep most of my owls and some of my fat quarters and scraps. The bottom drawers hold all my shipping supplies.
These cubes hold some of my scrap booking supplies! I LOVE them. They hold a lot of stuff. The carousal holds some of frequently used stamps and inks. The bottom has paint. The little stand also has some of the kids craft supplies to keep them busy while I am creating.
Love all the little jars of buttons and flowers. They make me happy.
This is where I do all my paper crafting! I used to have a big roll top desk to hold all my little embellishments, I had to find somewhere else to put them now that the computer is now in it.
The skinny shelves hold some of my favorite magazines and books, both scrap booking and sewing! The bigger one has doors and that is where I hide everything.........embellishments, magazines, scrapbook pages in progress, projects that I want to do, pictures, pictures pictures, the kids school papers that I have kept for them and so much more!
One of my favorite things is the clock that I made with a picture of the kids on it:)
My sewing table! What a mess!!! But, I love it:)

EYE CANDY Amy Butler fabrics, more buttons and thread:)

Another favorite! It is from Pottery Barn and it is soooo cute!
More fabric:)
This shelf is above the entry of the studio. It was in the room when the girls were in here, so that is why it has a flag banner, I have grown to like it. The jars hold stamp, trim, flowers and embellishments.
So that is my space and I LOVE it!!!! Some day I hope to have some more pieces from Pottery Barn that I love, but for now this is quite nice and it makes me smile:)


  1. Your studio is INCREDIBLE!!!!

    I don't know how on earth you know where everything is, and cannot believe the inventory that you've aquired over the years.

    Impressive April, totally impressive!

    and cute too;)

  2. Thanks Stacy! Can hardly wait to see it in person;) You have been gone all summer so all the changes will be like a new house! Can't wait to see you guys!

  3. Who could want anything more?:)

  4. I LOVEEEEEE your studio!!

    next paycheck I'm soooo buying some Owls. I'm obsessed with Owls!!

  5. all I can say is.... WOW! Looks good April... reeeeeal good:)

  6. Love it! Wish I had a room all to myself, but I don't. I have a closet in the is a walk-in and then my sewing machine sits out...I can watch TV, that is the only plus. But, one about 5 years, I think I will have a room all to myself and oh I can't wait.

    Nice job! What kind of sewing machine do you have?

  7. I cannot put into words how jealous I am of your studio space! I have a room, packed with 3 dressers, two tables, a desk, trunk and a book shelf - all mismatched, and not in a good way. It's space but I would feel much more creative and zen in a space like yours. I love it!
