Cloth Paper Scissors Virtual Studio Tour


I have a studio in a corner of my home.


It isn't a large studio, nor is it very glamorous. 


If you were to measure my success on paper,


the forecast would be bleak. 


But this 12 foot by 12 foot fortress, 


with the door knob that sticks,


is my sanctuary, my soft place to land


and has thought me much about the 


quiet surrender of an artful life. 


I hope you enjoyed peeking into my playground


filled with cherished gifts from dear friends and


 collected keepsakes from fellow artists who


have also found joy in this business of
nostalgic merry making.

I loved your tour, and you are so tidy! Maybe I should condense my area, would it be messier? PRobably!

I absolutely LOVE your blog! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I think I have more Halloween decorations than I do Christmas decorations. :-D

Your craft room is so amazing. Thanks for sharing.
