My Studio Window



This is my studio window. But, can I even call this my studio? That sounds a little pretentious. But I don't like calling it my craft room either, since it's 80% storage and 10% working space and 10% ribbon wall.

I'm big on ribbons y'all.


Well, whatever it is, it's dark in there. I wanted the window to let in as much light as possible,so I just recycled the snowflakes I put up last winter by taping them together. The end result looks a little like Tord Boontje's Before Dawn curtain --my favorite!


The silhouette of ruffles you see around the window is a garland made from my old Can and Cup Christmas wreath. I was worried it would look too Christmasy up in here, but honestly, it doesn't. And even if it did look a little jingly, I'm OK with that, because this girl knows how to jangle.

  2. Your posts always bring a smile to my face. Your designs and ideas are awesome. I do so enjoy your sharing your life with us. I think maybe we are somehow related because I too am creative and quirky.

  4. Very cool! I love them collectively. It kind of reminds me of this Edwards Scissorhands piece (http://designyoutrust.com/2011/07/12/cut-out-art/) I don't know what made me think of that actually...It's lovely! I should do that on my windows for the holidays.
