Happy Friday! I am home with both my littles today for Good Friday. We will be playing lots of Star Wars and Legos. Maybe I will be able to sneak in a few minutes to thumb through these glossies.
I went on a little glossy magazine binge the other day. I stopped by the magazine [...]
From the earliest thoughts on my studio, I knew I wanted a wall to wall counter height work area with shelves above. As work on my studio is nearing an end, I finally have my shelves! Pretty white shelves that pop off my blue focal wall!
