A room of one's own.

I think Virginia was on to something...

I've been waiting for about a year to clean up this studio.
 I've known (hoped) that we were going to have another peanut soon,
and thinking the peanut would could possibly be a girl,
and thinking that I would give up my studio room
for a little space in the garage.

And with the news that Jack will have a brother, and they'll share a room,
I am surprised at how relieved  I am to keep my studio.
 I shouldn't be surprised, but I am.

And now that I will have a permanent art room
 it's time to finally make it beautiful.
The possibilities are endless.

I'm purging and letting go of a lot.
I'm finally ready to sell a bunch of originals
that I just couldn't part with before.
I just put them up for sale in my etsy shop.

By the way, I love (LOVE) seeing studio spaces.
I love seeing how people organize & set up.
Mary just showed pictures of her studio,
 and I love all things Mary.
Do you have a space to share?
We'd love to see it.


  1. How fun--you're going to have 2 little boys in your life now, and they can come and play with you in your room!!

  2. Two happy bouncing baby boys and one beautiful permanent art studio! aaah, blessings!

  3. Loving your studio space. It's full of color and looks pretty comfy and cozy. Wish I could come over and create along side you for an afternoon :)

    I'm so excited, dear friend, about your new bundle. I hope you are feeling well and pampering yourself.

    Happy Sunday. Now I'm off to check out your new listings in your shop!

  4. I am glad you get to keep your studio space too.
    creating is such a part of who you are, being able to have everything in one place makes it so much easier to do so. And you can close the door when you need to and not worry about little hands.

    have fun!

  5. How wonderful - a baby boy & you get to keep your studio space. I love seeing studio space too especially since I call my "studio" - my kitchen table. :) I am glad I found your blog!

  6. oh erin.
    i remember those feelings of finding out that little bundle inside of me was ANOTHER boy. yet..also feeling oh so grateful for the blessing of being able to be a mother...and guess what? the girls finally came along later. i have 3 boys and it is SO great to see them grow up together. what a joy you are going to have.
    i have to tell you that i LOVE your scripture art. i haven.t posted much of my art on my blog but it is very FAITH based and Christian based like yours. you have a beautiful style. congratulations on your growing team.
    you are a doll.

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog :) I love seeing other artists work spaces. It's fun to see where the creative magic happens. Congratulations on having another little man around the house.

  8. Hi Erin! I love, love, love seeing studios too! So glad you don't have to give up your space... it's important, and moving into a space you're not so crazy about isn't too fun. On that note, I just posted before/sort of after pics of my basement studio that I'm finally settling into. Not crazy about the new space yet, but I'm determined to make it my own. Might require paint and fabric soon though! Hugs to you!!! -Shelly
