finally......the main pics of the studio








are here... for some reason blogger didn't like so many pics in one post...

details of pics are below in next post.
It took me along time to get it to this but I think I may actually be able to work in this!

off to scrap now!

kim

first off.......







my studio pics are here.....I love how it came out... Its only been 2 years since we remodeled the downstairs and set this up but I finally got my "style" that I wanted... (jon still thinks its cluttered but he's not the artist so he doesn't "get it" lol)i love the darker cabinets with the shabby decor and traditional pieces and of course, I kept some color in my pens and bling...

enjoy...
I don't know how long it will stay this way as I make a mess when I work but love how it looks!


I'll be back later with the newest cps cards from the sketch inspiration blog...
peace,
Kimo

where I been....

well, I had a sinus thingy all week.... and my fatigue kicked in.... really bad this time... severly tired... literally falling asleep the minute the kids would get on the bus and then I'd sleep til 11 ish am... get up, make lunch and then go back to the couch where I would just veg til it was time to walk up and get the bus.... so so tired... cannot even explain!
be back tomorrow (Monday) with lots of new projects.... I finally got a surge of energy Saturday and stayed up making some art! lol
Sunday I re decorated my studio too and its so purty... I need to add some things to the walls and then I ll take some pics and add em to my blog!
Hope everyone is getting some sleep for me! Even though we lose an hour with daylight savings, I still feel caught up... just having that extra hour of sunlight makes my day! Love this time of year!
See ya tomorrow when I can share some new stuff!

so.....

its been a fun weekend... friday night was the class with Kelly Goree... and I took no pictures but lots of fun.. did two layouts, won a pack from basic Greys new cupcake collection... not even out in stores yet! and had a blast buying some new stuff which is always fun in my book! lol

saturday was a crazy, gymnastics, play date, birthday party, soccer, etc type day... and I was exhaused...

sunday ryan's cough was yuckky so we took the day to stay home and get rested up, laundry, laundry and more laundry!

today, Im playing catch up... office day, etc...

I did this altered wall hanging for our monthly altered project challenge over at scrap-diner.
Sherine just got these new papers in from GCD studios... they are an awesome new manufacturer that just debuted at cha last month... their stuff is so incredibly pretty and unique...
two of us have projects with their papers in the gallery right now if you want to peek!
