2013 Where Bloggers Create

Oh My Gosh!
It is that time again already!
What a wonderful, fun event
Where Bloggers Create has become
each year. 
A HUGE shout out and thanks to
who spends many hours getting
this amazing event put together!
Lorena, or my creative space!
I am so happy to be participating again
this year, I believe this is my 3rd year!
Earlier this year, after the busy
Holiday creating times for me, I had a new
vision of how I wanted to tweak my room.
I seem to work in my room and then
manage to improve upon my area each year.
The main change for me this year was
creating a center work table surface space,
similar to ones I had seen on Pinterest.
I created mine with what I had by using 2
white storage shelves and another plastic
shelf I had and then the top is off a drafting
table that my hubby had originally given me.
I did have to stablize it a make sure the
heights all matched but it all seemed to
work together for me pretty well.
I skirted the *ugly* area and love how it blends
in to the overall theme of my shabby chic room!
This table has worked Amazingly well for me now!
Am Loving how I created more surface space for me to
work on when I am in the midst of a million projects!

I am SOOOO happy with the reults and it has been
a dream to have this table now all set up for
extra work space.

So, on to the tour of the rest of my room.
This is a small room, about 10.5ft x 11.5ft but
I have loaded it up with eye candy that makes me
sooooo happy!

Oky, so now I will let the pictures to the talking.
I have taken lots of pictures for you...enjoy!

I cannot wait to get out there an see the many other
creative peoples room!

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving comments
I really love them and appreciate you!

PS...a little of what has come out of my studio in 2013!
