Where We Create

I'm finally back home and catching up on things from being away to attend my stepmother's services. My dad just sent me this great picture...taken along Route 70/62 in Clinton MA along the Wachusett Reservoir:

What a sweet and lovely tribute and it really made me smile after an exhausting week.

It was a beautiful drive from Maryland to Massachusetts and then back. The colors in Pennsylvania were quite spectacular and a real inspiration for the Art with Heart Cycle 3 competition!

As I've been catching up on the blogs I follow I see there is a "where we create" theme going around so I thought I'd share my space:

We call it the "bead room", and it is also where our spare bed is for guests. I also keep other crafts up there. It is on the second floor and overlooks our back yard. And I am lucky to get lots of great birds perching on the tree branches that you can see just outside the windows. I feel so blessed to have that creative space to bead in, although I confess I have a bead project going in at least two other rooms in the house!!!
Like in my husbands den:

and the living room:

That is one of the (bazillion) great things about beads - they are just so amazingly portable!


  1. Oh I am jealous I do not have a studio yet I have a closet, a couple baskets and a bead tray but for now they work.

    I am glad you made it home safe after such a sad trip.


  2. Oh the bon voyage rock tugs at the heart strings!


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
