In My Studio – January 23

Posted by lori . 11 Comments


It’s funny…every week, as I’m preparing this post, I find myself wanting to start off with, “Well, this week I didn’t accomplish very much.”  What is that?  It made me think about why I wanted to do a post every Monday about what’s going on in my studio.  The reason…to give myself motivation and accountability as I pursue my creative work and play, and to give anyone who likes to “follow along” or “glimpse in” a chance to do that.  So, I’m banishing the “I’m less than” thoughts from my head, and here’s what happened in my studio this week.

I continued learning and taking pictures with  Susannah Conway’s e-course, Photo Meditations.  I still don’t think about taking pictures until I “need” to, but I am carrying my camera in my purse, and I have had a few moments when I thought, “I would like to take a picture of that.”  This is progress for me.


I sprayed the brass pieces with primer.  I decided to try white primer and see how I like it.  Usually, I use gray.

I did an art journal page.  My goal is to do one of these a week.  I’m a little behind, but I’ll catch-up quick now that I have the dreaded “first page” done.

I also played around with a knitting bee.  The knitting bee will be part of February’s “Try This” posts.

Next week, the “studio” needs a good cleaning and tidying up.

I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

    Carrying the camera is a really good idea! Mum has started to that. She reckons I often do the funniest things when she’s not trying to maake me do something. Maybe that’s the philosophy I should live by! Deccy x

    It definitely sounds like you have been accomplishing quite a bit. I try to carry a camera around too. The hard part is remembering! Love that last picture!

    I wish I could carry my camera around with me all the time! There are thousands of things I wish I could capture, but I don’t get the chance. Even things you think might not turn out can have pretty amazing results!

    When I moved in heres withs my mum…I thought her camera was actually a growth on her face.

    You accomplish way more than you gives yourself credit.

      I love it! Actually, this is exactly my style. When I first met my husband, I thought his head might explode when he saw my house because everything was pastels, flowers and lace. I’ve tried to modify my style to make him feel more comfortable and still stay true to myself…but, if I had my way, this is the way I would go.

    You’ve been creatively busy! Your art journal is amazing – so colorful and beautifully laid out. I carry a camera with me wherever I go as well. You just never know what you’ll come across that is worth remembering with a photo. 🙂

  • Good for you for banishing the “i’m less than” thoughts!! You’re on to something there.
    And those journal pages are great!
    …I also love the pic of your dog… soooo comfy there. 🙂
