I'm having a Party!!!

I have become a blogoholic.
I can’t seem to get enough.
The stories, the pictures, the constant
inspiration! I love it all. For me, what makes it most special is the friendships I am making and the never ending give and take of creative ideas. They rise and swirl around us all. You only need to spend a small amount of time hopping from one blog to another to find incredible artwork, beautiful gardens and interiors, and heartwarming stories. My idea for this party came from 2 places.

One of course, was the wonderful publication, Where Women Create.
If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, I highly recommend it. The second came from a fabulous woman named Denise over at BellaDreams. She posted some photos of her new Studio space, that were just wonderful. So it got me to thinking... I bet there are hundreds of gorgeous studios and workspaces out there.
Rooms that are whimsical
or elegant, or clever or all of the above!!! So I am inviting you all to
join me for my first ever blog party.

Share your creative spaces!!!

Is your space at the dining room table? Do you have a room of your
own? Have you converted a closet?
And what do you do in there? What kind of things do you create?
There is a little bit of voyeur in all of us don’t you think??

So, come on and join in the fun!

To participate, just leave me a message on this post along with the address of your blog. I will add you to my link list on my sidebar. On July 24th, post your photos and stories about yourselves and your creative spaces. Then we will all have a great time coming over and visiting all the wonderful, creative spaces that you all have made for yourselves!!
To help me promote my event, please take the party poster and add it to your sidebar as a photo with a link to my blog (or this post.) And ,if you
are feeling generous,
a post on your blog about the party would be awesome!

Thanks so much!! I really hope to see you there!!!

Hi Karen,
I'd love to do this and first let me say thank you for giving me enough room to clean up my petite room in time for the event. I'll grab the button and I'll post about it early next week too. I enjoy Where Women Create magazine, but haven't seen the latest with Marie Osmond yet... gosh, hope it's not sold out. Okay, I'll be there - thanks for the invite.

Debra said...

Dear Friend of Mine,
Let's Party together with all of our blog friends. Your invite is perfect and it's so nice to see what you've been up too. I will invite all my friends to your party, they have great spaces and ideas. My studio is my favorite space and I'm still decorating it with new things, so July it is to show off. Girl, You Rock!!!

Anonymous said...

What a wonderful idea! I am so glad that you gave us some wiggle room to get everything presentable.

Come July 24th I will be ready to party! ;o)

Sara said...

This is a wonderful idea! To bad I'm out of town for a couple of monts and I will not be able to participate but I will put the poster on my blog. I can't wait to see all the pictures. Maybe I can participate next time.


The Rustic Victorian said...

Whew! Sorry you haven't heard from me lately. It's been like a surgery ward around our family lately! I'm at my daughter's house right now, just brought her home from the hospital! I'll put your party button up on my blog right away and really talk it up! I'm sure it's going to be tons of fun!

Anonymous said...

Thank you Karen so much for the invite! Sounds like so much fun and I would love to partcipate so you can sign me up! Can't wait to see everyone's spaces!

Elyse said...

hi karen!

when i saw your comment on kelly's blog my first thought was -- is this the karen valentine from "room 222"?" a dated reference, i know!

your party sounds wonderful and i would like to join in. i will add your badge to my blog.


Elyse said...

The Painted Nest said...

I'll do a post tomorrow about your party to help spread the word ~ xoxo Joy

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Tiedupmemories said...

Hi Karen! Nice to meet you! I found you through My Petite Maison.I love your style! We have similar style homes!Love cottage,shabby chic,country french all in one!I'm thinking about adding my name to your party list but I'll let you know soon. I need to organize and clean it up massively to look good enough to show if you know what I mean. Thanks for the invite.

Tristan Robin said...

I'll definitely participate!

... and I'll add your button to my side bar!

thanks for inviting me.

Shell said...

Hi Karen,

I'm laughing as I'm reading about your party because my "creative space" is a NIGHTMARE right now!! I have STUFF everywhere, because my wonderful EX-Marine son has moved back to my small bungalow. So,,,the office/craft area is now his bedroom. I adore him being home. I'll take the creative chaos anytime after having him leave home at 18 and subsequently serve two terms in Iraq.
So,,,yes, I'd love to be part of it, my warts and all.

Embellished Bayou said...

Count me in, I love a good party!!

Unknown said...

OMG My space sucks A mess in a tiny space!! But Oh to get to drool over all the other spaces great idea!! Hugs Julie

Lynn Stevens said...

Hi Karen,
Well this sounds like alot of fun, I,ll never make where women create but hey I'd Love to share my space!
I'll post your button next week and be ready on the 24th!

Dawn-Hydrangea Home said...

I would love to participate. Time to organize my space!

Deb said...

Hi Karen
Where Women Create is one of my favourite publications & your Where Bloggers Create idea is fabulous. Thanks for the invite ~ count me in ♥ I'll write a post about it today :-)

Faded Charm said...

Hi Karen~
Thanks so much for the invite. I'd love to join your "Party" and think I might have things organized by then. I've been wanting to clean up anyway and this gives me motivation.
Enjoy your day!

Magic Moonlight said...

I'd love to do this, Please add my Name to the list, I will add the picture to my Blog, Thanks, Blanca

Empty Nest Full Life said...

Found you by way of Embellish, and I am enjoying reading, however I seem to create wherever it is convenient for the moment, however I wish I had a special space. I will see what I can come up with. Jackie

Maison Douce said...

That sounds like a wonderful idea, thank you so much for the invitation!! I have posted about my little sewing/guest bedroom before, so I hope people won't mind seeing it again...!!

Patina said...

Ok, I'm in it sounds like a lot of fun. Thanks so much for having a party and for giving me enough time to get cleaned up for it.

Unknown said...

Hi Karen,
My friend Blondie told me about your party. This sounds wonderful. July 24th, that gives us plenty of time to prepare something fun.


Linda K. said...

Since my little blog got under way I've been working on my little creative area. Picked up some cute furniture on craigslist and added old linens, labeled jars, recycled shelving etc. etc. It's humble but 'no place like 'my' creative space!' Gladly adding your post and badge to my sidebar. Thanks Karen!

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

Karen, that is such a wonderful idea. Sign me up. I'm really looking forward to seeing all those creative creating spaces.

Caleen said...

Hi.. I would love to be a part of this. I have a small area but, I still love it.. I will grab the button and post later.. I need to get the magazine.. Sounds like so much fun.. count me in..

Diane said...

Oh, this sounds like so much fun. Count me in. That will give me time to spruce up my little blog spot to invite everyone in. Diane Pinecones & Roses

Geralyn Gray said...

This is a terrific idea--I would love to participate. I love looking at studios on the two peas in a bucket site and I can't miss an issue of Where Women
Create. Thanks for the invitation and I will put your lovely button on my sidebar.

Eila A said...

Hi Karen! What a wonderful idea your bloggers' party is! I'd love to join, but the problem is that I'm not sure if I'll be with an internet connection on July 24th. I'm pretty sure I'll be in my little summer cottage then, and that is really just a cottage, located on an island in a big lake, 20 km from where I live. But if I can make it, I'll be at your party!

Teresa said...


You have a beautiful blog! I'd love to join in your party...this will be the inspiration to organize my creative corner.

June said...

Hi Karen,
Sounds like a great party. Count me in, I would love to participate. So much fun.

Claudia said...

I'd love to take part, although I live in a tiny cottage, so I create all over the place! I've just discovered your blog through Tracie and plan to spend some time looking at your posts! Have a great day.

Oh, in case I was unclear - please sign me up!

LissyLou said...

I like this!! I'll take part x

Unknown said...

I would love to participate... and see everyone else's space too... what a FUN IDEA!

Shell said...


I'm SO excited! When I posted to be involved with your party as you may recall I just laughed at all the creative chaos in my home!!

But,,,,I can't stand it, I have to share,,,,ta-da,,,,I'm getting a STUDIO!!! My BFF is a property manager and she actually NEEDS me to occupy one of her vacant buildings......So I get private space, 4 blks from my home WITH a drafting table and private entry!

Feeling like a prayer was answered and I'm on my creative way!! Frankly, I'm not a religious zealot, but have asked for guidance as of late and I feel as if the path is being paved for me...

Anyway, I don't think I'll have to take pictures of my dining area or breakfast nook,,,,,I think I'm going to have a bonafide creative space!!

Hugs to you and yours!

Suzanne MacCrone Rogers • Italian Girl in Georgia™ said...

A lovely idea - I'm very new to blogging but I have a small, messy studio; I would like to participate.

Keep you posted!

I should have specified before, so sorry! :)

What a fabulous idea. I have seen the publication "Where Women Create" and Quilting Arts version "Studios." My art studio is not in my house and I love my space to create fiber art.

Ozstuff said...

HI Karen! Keep in mind you are asking a digital freak about her workspace so my story is pretty boring! I am lucky to have a roomy study with high Cathedral ceiling. My tastes in life are simple (and cheap) but if I am going to spend money it will be on a heeyuge monitor, upscale computer and all the bells and whistles which is my case are every piece of digital art software known to man. Oh, and a change of digital camera once a year because there is always a better model coming out. I would like to say I have a tidy study but that would be a lie. I work much better where there is mess about (apparently).

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

This sounds lovely! Blessings from Amy Sperry Faldet! Add me to the list!

Rebecca Nelson said...

Ok...I can't believe this but I'm actually going to JUMP IN and do this! :) I think it will be fun! Thanks for giving us all enough time to clean things up...

I'll be ready with all the trimmings...when July 24th comes around. Hope everyone does FAINT! Lotta stuff in that little room of mine!

Thank you, Karen! Wonderful idea!


Mammabellarte Rita Reade said...

It's a great idea. I wish I had more time...to get ready but soldering classes are going on for this week. I hope you do this again. Ciao

Thank you for the invite...i'll pass the info along!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Great idea Karen! My house is in disarray right now because some rooms are packed up and others are holding areas (we are trying to get our house ready to list). I will look forward to peeking in everyone's "window"!

I put the beautiful button you made available for this event on my sidebar! Wondering if you have a "grab my blog button" I'm not seeing to add to my list of bloggers (also on my sidebar)?

Jan Thomason said...

Everyone seems to be telling what a great idea this is! And, then I come along, cringing, and tell you that I'm probably going to kick myself for saying, "Oh, Karen! Please, I want to show you my studio!"
My nickname for my studio is 'crackhouse'.....I'm going to have to do some housecleaning or will be forced to post pictures of a studio that looks more like a community dump then it does an art studio!
But, either way, count me in and hope you're the inspiration that I need! LOL, Jan

Jan Thomason said...

P.S. I'll not only add your invitation to my blog, but I will do a blog post inviting all that read my blog to the festivities!

Hi! I am just a week into participating with my own blog and would love to jump into it with your idea of sharing spaces!
We are on vacation, but I'm hoping to find computer time while we are away and will try posting the advertisment of the party on my blog. Which is: alittlebluesky.blogspot.com

Thanks so much! Lynn

Julie Ranae said...

Absolutely fabulous! I will be there and will feature this event on my blog in a post as well as signage. Great inspiration for all types of art!

Seth said...

Tremendous idea. Who doesn't like to see creative spaces? Just found out about this from Kathryn at KV Creative Designs. No time for me to post but I look forward to going on the tour!! Thanks for all the hard work I know this must have taken!

Sue said...

OOooo, please include me in the studio tour! What a great idea, Can't wait to visit all the creative spots!! I will grab the button and post about it.

Cindy said...

If you have room for one more, I would love to play. When that book first came out, I just could not stop looking at it. So many of my favorite artists were in there, and it was a thrill to see where they worked. And the magazine follows along the same lines perfectly. I look forward to each issue. Thanks for hosting and I look forward to all of the wonderful studios to see.


V I N T A G E O L O G I E said...


What an AWESOME idea ... I hope it's not too late to participate, I always seem to be jumping on the band wagon at the last minute!

I'm a fan of the magazine WWC ... but I'm always wanting to see more when I get to the last page. Looks like this blog party is going to fulfill that need for sure!!

Count me in!! {...please}
Off to clean-up my spaces ...
Hmmmm...maybe "before" and "after" pics?

Hi Karen, I was just checking all your party people. It's very exciting. I see I'm listed. THANK YOU. This will be fun.

Sonia said...

Hello, I had signed up a while back but dont see my blog on the list of participants. I have been working on my post today, getting ready for the big day. Just wanted to make sure I am on the list... Cant wait for tommorrow!!

Lori said...

Hi Karen, Just found your invite today (the 23rd!) just in time for your blog party. I'd love to participate, but am afraid I may not live up to the standards of these other gals. You see, my creative space is for Scrapping. I am a vintage gal, collecting vintage items for my home and using them in my paper arts projects, so I do hope that I won't disappoint anyone. Do let me know if it's okay to still participate! I will add your invitation to my blog and hope my followers will join in! BTW, I just adore your blog!!!

Stephanie Suzanne Designs said...

Hello Karen,

What a great event to have! I'm so sorry I can't be a part of this right now. I'm in the process of putting together my new studio and nothing is unpacked a this point..it's a mass of tables and totes...LOL

I do hope you will have this again..I'd love to participate the next time. :0)

I'll be sure to surf around to see everyone else's spaces!

Have a great day,

Gail said...

Hi Karen!
I hope it's not too late to enter..I just got back from Nevada City where I snapped some darling pics of a store with a cute studio...she's a blogger, too, so I guess that would count!!

Hope it isn't to late to get to play!
Just found you thru Masion Douce. My work room is a mess but it has some bits of whimsy I would love to share. Great idea, Thanx Linda

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Oh goodness, I feel like the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date! If it's possible, could you enter me as 'House of Whimsy'? Much appreciated!

Hi Karen,

Thank you for hosting such a fab party!
Best wishes from Germany

Kate said...

Hi Karen! Love your blog, I just found out about the party and wasn't sure if it was yesterday or today. In any case, I just recently started my blog and ironically enough did a post yesterday with a pic of my space before I even knew about this wonderful party! Here's my site: http://petuniadarlingsweets.blogspot.com/
Is it too late? I'm happy to put up a post about it!

Donna said...

Oooh, how fun! I just now learned of this party through Claudia (Mockingbird Hill Cottage). Here is a link to my creative space post, if you are still accepting participants:



Judy @ In His Grip said...

I love looking at other people's studio spaces. I showed my studio in a post a while back and here is the link.

What girl does not love a party

Rose Garden Romantic said...

I am a little bit late, but I am participating today! I can't wait to see all of the other lovely studios!
With so many to visit, I think it may take a few days! Haha!

Stephanie Suzanne Designs said...


After thinking about it I would like you to add my blog to your list of creative spaces to visit.

I'm gonna show the space and tell what I'm gonna do with it...

Sorry to be late...just decided it would be fun to be part of it even though I'm not finished.


Thanks so much for including me,
