This is my creative arts workspace. 52 years ago, my mom, who is now 92, created this beautiful needlepoint cushion cover for her antique chair. I now use this chair when I work on my creative projects. Mom had this chair in her bedroom for many years before she created the cushion. I remember the chair when I was a small child. My mom was very creative. She did many quilts and needlepoints. I like to think I inherited my creativity and love of color and texture from her. My Dad was an opera singer, he was always singing in the house.
I made this sign when I worked at the hospital running the MindBody Program. It was more fun than a plastic pre-lettered sign!
Here are some supplies I use for visual journaling. I collect supplies, picking stuff up on sale or at garage sales. The ribbons are soft and colorful and I love the texture of buttons in a collage.
I bought this treasure chest years ago at Michaels on sale. I keep lots of stickers and other crafty shapes in her to use in my visual journaling.
And of course I have lots of writing implements! Different drawing/writing media have different strokes and different emotional effects, so I change them with my mood.
Stop by again; I’ll be sharing some of my projects this summer!
