Thanks for dropping by my space. You have such lovely collections. Handy to have your creative space right next to your bed if you have an idea as you drift off.

Tiny, but oh so cozy looking! I may have lots of space, but I didn't always. I was all crammed into about a 10 x 10 space before and I kind of miss it, everything looks so cozy and close at hand in your studio! Thanks or sharing and thanks for stopping by to see mine!

All those colorful ribbons and trims. I'd love to be there to peek inside each box, basket and bin. You did a great job corralling it all in a tight space. tfs

I love the way you have created your space in a corner of the bedroom. We do indeed do what we have to do! Your spash of red desk is fantastic! Your space may be small but its full of wonderful things.

Janet said...

It may be small but it looks organized and functional. And having everything right there close at hand must make it easier to create. I applaud your hubby! I'm not sure mine would like having my studio in the bedroom!

Chris said...

With the addition of our 3rd baby, I lost my art room. I have a pretty big closet and not a lot of clothes (haha), so I'm thinkin about setting up shop in there. If I ever get it cleaned out!

Hi Caleen,

Now that's a wonderful creative space! Good for you on making it happen even though you lost your separate room. It looks so great with all that vintage stuff.

I'd love for you to come over for a stroll through my studio. It's been an ongoing transformation for almost a year since I moved in to our new home.

Have a wonderful day,
Stephanie ♥

My space is in a corner of our bedroom too. Doesn't make the Farmboy too happy, but it'll have to do for the time being.

Glad to hear you received your package. Hope you like everything!

Love it! More is better in my book. More fun to explore and poke through all of the goodies. Thanks so much for visiting my studio.

Pam @ Frippery said...

Lots of goodies to play with! What a cheerful space.I love a dual purpose room too, you can nap and dream of your next creation.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love all the colors! You are right though, sometimes you have to deal with the space you've got. I think it makes us more creative in how to use the area when it's small.

Jeanne said...

Caleen, your corner of the bedroom is heavenly! I love how you made it all work - moving to a smaller space that is. Good for you. Now you don't have to go very far if your have an inspiration in the middle of the night!

Gail said...

Yes, you do what you have to, I'd say you have done a good job of downsizing. Everyone has to sacrifice in a situation like that, you could have taken over the garage, LOL.

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Oh please, may I come and play at your house? I see so many things I would love to explore. Thank you so much for inviting us to visit with you.

Jill said...

Your space is wonderful (as are the new photos!) I am especially taken with the door and mirror hanging from it and the old shadow box filled up with your treasures. As I recall those boxes used to be gold and backed with a mirror. Did you repaint it or buy it that way. I'm not sure I'll pass one up again at a sale!

So bright and full of life..thank you for sharing your story & your space. Hugs, Teresa from foxhollowtales.com
