Blog Carnival - April 24th Edition

This week's question: describe your dream studio (or if you already have one, give details!). Decorating, supplies you wish you had, size, etc.

I definitely do not already have my dream I now sit at a cramped desk overflowing with school books, bills and a sleeping cat, the first thing on my list for a dream studio...SPACE! I'd love to have multiple workstations, one for my computer, one for the actual work to be done, and a third for finished designs and packing up orders.

I'd also love a room with lots of natural light, and windows that I could open when it is nice out. I'd love a view of something other then the neighbors...preferably something nature-y.

I'd have lots of room for inspiration- places to hang images, idea boards and lots of room to put post-it notes and white boards to jot all my ideas and deadlines on. And a whole wall just for organizing supplies and storage.

The room would be bright and airy- painted a pretty color...purple, or blue or green maybe?

I wonder if such a place exists :p

wedding invite workshop

it is really getting so close to bonnie and andy's wedding...I'm getting so excited, and last friday while we were putting together the invitations, I got even more excited!

there are a few key items to having the proper workspace set up for wedding invite assembly...

1. box of wine in plastic cups

2. invitation materials

okay, so I guess it's just those two things :) but it was such a fun day...3 months from tomorrow...ready Bon??

oh and since I always miss the Cherry Blossom's a pic of the tree in Bonnie's front own personal Cherry Blossom festival ;)

Tulips on my deck :)

probably the inspiration for this week's Friday Finds...the beautiful tulips my aunt and uncle brought me at Easter :) I put them in real flower pots and everything! let's hope they last...I am not known for having a green thumb of any kind!
