Darlene's Home Studio
Long time no see! I am under the philosophy that bloggers should never have to apologize for their absence unless they have a huge following and post frequently (life happens!) or are a huge brand, but I still want to say sorry for disappearing the last couple of weeks. I needed to take a few steps back and reassess the areas of my life I could cut back on to contribute to my well being. More on that in another post.
A couple of weekends ago I had the pleasure of checking out an old friend's home studio. We have known each other since the 7th grade (I won't tell you how long ago that was) and have kept in touch ever since. While we may not be besties or even talk daily, we've kept up with each other's lives through Facebook and Twitter and she is one of the few people from high school that I happily stay in contact with. Yea, I skipped my 10 year high school reunion...
Darlene was hosting a "Pinterest Party" in her new studio where she would lead a few projects discovered through Pinterest or people could bring their own crafts. Since I was unable to attend, I stopped by her house to check out the studio as well as catch up on life.
Darlene took her crafty skills and converted her garage into her studio. It's full of bright natural light and various craft and photography projects are on display throughout the garage. She took this old dresser and repainted it as well as the trinkets on top.
I absolutely love her collection of cameras!
I'd like to think that if I could convert a garage into my studio, mine would look similar to hers. I love how she organizes items in old jars and has various DIY goodies scattered around her studio - whether it's a current project or some decor like the yarn balls (first photo) or this heart garland below.
Do you have a craft room or studio? I have dreams that my future home will need an additional bedroom, sunroom, or basement just for all my crafts!
Thank you, Darlene, for sharing your space with me and on my blog! It was great to catch up with you. I may be a frequent visitor of your studio.
