Where One Woman Creates

           hello...here is where i have been ..
AND I'M JAMMIN'


working away...designing


labels for the beachy bags


it's a mess in here...


trying to organize it all ...whew!
 not my best attribute...


putting it all together


i'm in love with fabric...lovin... paisley and stripes
always makes me smile...


part of the 24/ 7 brain that never stops...
my inspiration board...and my magazine obsession.
does anybody out there...
 have a magazine budget...????
LOL... I DIDN'T THINK SO...

 

IT'S SOOOO  MUCH  FUN TO
 LET YOUR INHIBITIONS RUN WILD...


This certainly isn't any showcase...but, just thought 
i would show ya'll what it's really like 
when you're an artist...aghhhhhhh stop the insanity...
am i a pack rat..???  This is reality, baby..


and then just when i thought i was in the groove...


uhhh yea... look closer..


this comes in the mail...my 
obsession compulsive disorder
is trying to be suppressed...but... 
well, you know the rest...
lovin..this time of year 'cause..
everything is coastal chic..in the catalogs...
stock up now on all your seashell decor...
they're already planning AUTUMN...
see ya later...
there's always tomorrow...
by the way ...need to share 
something with 
ya'll 

is hosting  an unbelievable 
JAMMIN'"giveaway" from
a company i just 
discovered called...
a painting FROM 
THE  ARTIST GERRI HYMAN
( very tropical)

Oh...I can't wait to see your new creations!!! I love the labels.
I too am obsessed with magazines:)
What magazine is on the top of the pile with the starfish on it!?!? I don't recognize it!
Thanks!

Wow, I love all of your fabric and your labels are beautiful! I can't wait to see the finished products. Even your office closet is pretty and I do NOT think you're a pack rat. I was a professional organizer for many years and that doesn't even come close to some of what I've had to tread through. lol ;)

Jen said...

My daughter needs a magazine budget. She is an artist too....and messy! But even your mess is lovely!

sealaura said...

ooh you are on a creative role. I love paisley and stripes too and let me tell you your blog feels like a little vacation. I have tried to cut back on my magazines, since blogs are so fun and free. I only receive Coastal Living and Marie Claire. but I do miss them so I go to barnes and noble, buy a coffee and sit for hours.

Beach House Living said...

Looks like you are on a roll. I could have a field day just sitting among all that fabric.

Hey I have a 10 year old boy so I know all too well the running around with the neighbor boys with water guns, rubberband guns, nerf guns and anything they can make into guns! Loving your blog the music makes me want a Pina Colada. Love the bags and the tags are so classy!

Oh Hello! I just love your little blog... I have been over here jammin all morning to your cool tunes... and just because I live in the desert now doesn't mean I'm not a beachy girl... I grew up in Manhattan Beach CA. and miss the beach so much... But I go quite often to different beaches to visit! Can't wait to follow your beachy fun! When I miss the beach and can't get to a beach I'll pop over here! Between you and Maya i'm beachy covered!
