where women create....



Have you ever picked up the magazine "Where women Create"? It's put out by Stampington & Co., and it's quarterly magazine shows the amazing places where women create. It's pretty incredible, some of the spaces that they show, whole floors of homes turned into creative spaces, fabulous rooms, to die for spaces. Come on in, this is where I create, this is my space.



This place is my sunroom / office/ shop at the moment. It's where I take my photo's because the light in here is amazing even in the grayest of the winter.



I'm not a crafter, you won't find me creating in that way, but what I am is a visualizer. I create with my eyes, my sense of style, and my brain never seems to want to stop. A girlfriend commented the other day, she said, " do you ever stop"? And the truth is.. No. I wake up in the middle of the night with new ideas, and have to jot them down. I am a visual person. I don't create with my hands, I create with my eyes. I carry my camera around with me everywhere, because there is beauty everywhere, its just knowing how to find it.


This is where I work now that there is no more shop. This is my shop. This is where I read to my children. This is where I have my morning cup of coffee {minus the croissants, thank you}. This is where I start my day. This is where I catch up on your day to day, and let you know about mine. This is where I wrap and package your orders.



Now you know where I work.


Have a great Monday!

Looks like sooo much fun, I would have a field day in there with my camera! Love, love, love, did I say love, wait let me say it one more time, love that couch and the light in the room is fabulous...I just hand a pang of jealousy, I hate that feeling. darn it! Thanks for sharing, I also like the heater grid...te hee! And also where did you get that spool of ribbon on the end...the linen colored one? :)

So very pretty and organized...I just looked over at my work table--I think a small bomb just went off!
well, I have been busy crafting this morning (I made a purse from an angora sweater!!It's adorable!)
I love the bird hook. Also, the little glass jars for paperclips. Great stuff.
{sigh} I'll go clean up now.

What a charming space! It has such a paris flea market vibe to it which of course I LOVE. And that love seat is absolutely to die for. It couldn't be cuter. And what a nice sunny creative spot to work at - lucky you!

Leah C said...

What a pretty place to start the day! And all that glowing light...aahhhh:)

Jackie said...

Hey - I just bought that magazine today (the 2nd issue) - so fun! I LOVE your sweet space - it's perfect and so inviting! Very nice!!

LuLu said...

Lets just say a loud sigh!!!! Perfect spot to start your day! The light is dreamy and with the couch (sigh) again... I'm spying quite a few goodies in your "creative spot" ....so so glad you shared your room!!!

Gorgeous place to spend your days. It's so you!

Brandie said...

Great space Kasey! I love seeing where people work and find inspiration. One of these days I will clean my space up enough to show where I create;) We are definitely kindred spirits in the way that we think. I too wake up often with my head spinning with ideas. I keep a journal on my nightstand to capture all of my late night brainstorming. I might need a couple of extra lives to do all of things that I have dreamt up!

The Cherry Blog said...

Simply Me Art said...

Beautiful Spot Kasey, I agree with you, the light looks Amazing. I share my space with the family. Its our Loft but it is big and lots of light also. Creating is in the Eye of the Beholder right! Great Post too.. Have a wonderful week, your earrings are on their way. Jamie

nichole said...

What a charming, beautiful space. I can't wait to have a creative space of my own. For now, every room does double duty in our apartment. ;)

Design Lovely said...

I love this post. I totally relate. I create with my eyes and not my hands too! Well put!

littlebyrd said...

It is beautiful! I really love that chair, or is it a loveseat? I will never show where I create - it isn't a pretty picture! On another note, I know a girl here in Portland whose studio was featured in the latest issue of that magazine. I haven't seen it yet and this reminds me I need to pick it up.

Brenna LaPray said...

I love the croissant post. Good for you for working out. When your kids ask if there is a baby in your tummy, you should just smile because remember you lOOOOVE being prego...not me. I guess it's because you always look fabulous with a little one cooking.

jen from wr said...

It is yummy! and I know how it is to wake up in the middle O the night with ideas!

PS-I got the lovely trinket you sent today you crazy wonderful girl! LOVE it! Thank you!!!

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Kasey! that is seriously wild! I haven't even read the post yet...I'm commenting after just reading the title. I do my posts in advance, and wrote mine early Monday then I didn't get online the rest of the day because I have a wicked cold. This is the first I've seen of your post! You and I must be TWINS! ;-) Great minds think alike!!

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Okay, now I've read your post. And I'm so jealous! What a GORGEOUS office/studio. They ought to feature YOU in Where Women Create. Simply stunning! (I still think it is crazy that we posted so closely on the same topic. Swear I hadn't seen this post...really.)

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

I know I'm the queen of multiple comments...hope you don't mind if I link to your post...it just fits so beautifully with mine. Thanks!

citysage said...

I absolutely love this space! The little settee in the window is to die for. And doesn't having good light make all the difference in the world?

Terri Conrad said...

Terri

Jules from "The Roost" said...

What a charming place! I got my order and I am CRAZY about it! Love it and now I can see where you created it! :)

Jeanneoli said...

I hope I have a space as lovely someday!

Debbie @ Cheaper by the Bakers Dozen said...

I love your explanation of what kind of "creator" you are! I'm not a crafter either but I can so relate to waking up the night with an idea I can't wait to try.

We are on a tight budget right now but God keeps giving me ways of moving my own things around and repurposing them. It's almost more fun than shopping (almost....).

thanks for the inspiration. I am bookmarking you RIGHT NOW.

VINTAGE HOME lifestyle said...

Just learned about Where Women Create today & can't wait to hold my very first issue in my hands! Your place looks splendid! I can't wait to move into our next home - we're hunting for more space, light, peace & also lots of ROOM to roam! Well done! Cheers, Julie:
