Studio Friday April 7th 2006

My friend, Vee has been posting to her blog something called 'Studio Friday'. Each friday her blog has had a little tidbit about her Studio or her craft. It interested me so I checked it out and it's definitely something that I'd like to do too! ( Thanks Vee, for the inspiration! )

This week's topic is "Room With a View"

My scrap room has 2 large windows. I can see the swingset and part of my back yard. It's a great source of light as well but I can close the blinds and feel completely cozy if I want to. I get a lot of my creativity from the weather. My windows are important. My house is FULL of very large very tall windows. The view from my studio is important to me. Sometimes I sit and drift off to 'la-la' land in a day dream and that's when the creativity hits me. Here's the view out the windows:

There is yet another view from my scraproom, and that is behind me on the couch. This view delights me even more than the one from my windows.......
My2Girls
They are the ultimate source of inspiration for my creativity!

hi gabi!

your lucky to have both views! and while i'm not a mom, i've always found children, esp. my nieces and nephews, wonderful sources of inspiration...i have their pictures everywhere in the house!

and it's so nice to know that someone knows what i'm talking about---the amazing beauty of maine...i've been to kennebunk, k'port, etc usually on my way to portland, where there is the one and only target store in the whole state!!!!!! i so miss maine, i can't even begin to express in words. i miss the bean store in freeport, driving along and stopping at all the antique shops along scenic route 1 and the christmas tree shop and a.c. moore's craft store in s. portland as well!

i used to live in lincolville (just north of the camden-rockport area) and my hubby and i miss living there something wicked! luckily we go there to visit our friends at least once in the summer, which as you know, is the most wicked good time to be there!

check out my blog again, bec. i plan to post more snaps of our life in maine...i've been feeling a bit homesick lately and i dug out the pictures....

thanks for checking out my sf view and for your comment!

I can see why it will be hard to leave your house. Great yard!

Hey Miss Popular!!!

Your backyard is as big as mine! Isn't it great?! I'm so thrilled that my kids have this gigantic playland to explore and have fun in!!! I hope that you will find an equally great yard wherever it is you will travel to.

Great view too...my 'studio' has a ground eye's view and well I need to rearrange so that I can peek out it more often!!!

Hugs!!

Great lawn, but I understand why you rather look at those cute girls! And your dog... what a cutie. Maybe you should get a rope or a iron chain? I love that you let him go outside when ever he likes!
