Finishing touches

The Spring Bada Bing! this past Sunday was really fun and exhausting. I can't believe how gorgeous the space was. Of course, the ONE thing I forgot was my damn camera! Although it POURED ALL DAY, there was a great turnout. Thank you to everyone who came out to support us. I'd also like to give a HUGE thank you to the Richmond Craft Mafia. They put on such a well organized event every year. Those ladies are awesome!
Now I can spend my time focusing on the final touches of my website. woot woot!
I'll also be adding some new items to my Etsy shop just as soon as I take some photos.
Here's to being productive!

Studio space

I love seeing what adorns other artist's workspaces. I know that the "inspiration board" is fairly common and what's on it rotates with each artist's vision. I also have one. I thought it'd be nice to share mine with you. Some recurring themes for me are: death, spirit and the afterlife, floral, lace, family & friends, and kitties. Humor is always mixed in.

Here's a shot of my workbench. Frankie is my newest helper.

This is above my bench and I add things to it regularly

This is a very special spot for me. I've got some of mom's cremains (in her own little altar) and Izzie's cremains here. I also have a photo portrait of an unknown dead baby girl (I call her Bella). It's so sweet. She's wearing a beautiful white dress with eyelet detail at the hem, a little white cardigan sweater and white booties.

This is one of four fireplaces. Only one works. I love it none the less

What's on your inspiration board?
