Are you pooped yet???

Wow! You guys have been amazing party animals!!! Some of you have even emailed me to let me know you have finished visiting everyone on the list!!! Personally I need more than 3 hours of sleep a night so it's taking me a little bit longer! I just finished the first third of the list! WooHoo! I have seen some incredible studios so far and can't wait to see the rest! I know you guys are anxious to hear the winners of the prizes, but if you could be patient for a week or so, I hope to get through all the guests before I make the announcements . As I am visiting everyone I am copying and pasting the direct links over to their permanent home, so even if it takes you a couple of months to visit everyone, they will all be available. Thank you to everyone who has left me a sweet comment so far. You guys are the best!!! Next stop.... H-R!

Yes, Karen... I am pooped too and still have so far to go, but I am going to make it just like you! I am pacing myself, at least that's what I am telling myself. So many beautiful studios and great ideas. See you in a week or so!

I haven't even gotten that far, but I have never been organized like that so I have been hopping around! This was such a great time, thank you so much for hosting, I have gotten so much inspiration from all of these blogettes. There are some really wonderful spaces out there, I love seeing everyones ideas! Thank you! Theresa

Gail said...

So much fun, I'm afraid I have a ways to go too! But what fun this is.....thanks again for hosting, I'm loving it :)

melanie said...

I am so glad that I joined up- had a great time...I will be reading blogs for a week at least...between jobs...but it has been a great experience! thanks so much!

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

I have done 2 of the groups and yes, I am pooped! I also saw your article in the WWC magazine...beautiful!

fiberdoodles said...

This has been the best fun! But yes, it will take awhile to take in all these wonderful, inspiring, creative spaces. Thank you so much for doing this for us ~ LOVE IT!

Malisa said...

Oh, my gosh, the studios are unbelievable! You are ahead of me...I haven't even finished one-third yet! Whew! I am determined to finish the entire list though! Thanks for this wonderful opportunity. By the way, that vintage photo you posted today is kick booty! Yes!


DeeDee said...

Thanks Karen..It takes me longer cause I don't get mucu computer time..I need ideas so I can enter next years...lol..

thanks for all that you do...you rock!...

I am thru the "B's" and some great stuff going on here...

Leanne said...

I am through the entire list! (Well, those who posted their rooms, I haven't been back to see if there were any late postings)

And aside from church and hosting an afternoon tea, I've done diddly squat but look at beautiful functional spaces for the last three days!

I've been taking notes so I can revisit some of my faves and absorb some more.

Now I see why I needed to leave off the captcha thingy. Which I will do for the time being.

Thanks for hosting this -- it's been a blast!

Prencie said...

Due to a VERY busy fathers day weekend I got such a late start on my blog party:( I'm still in the B's!! It's gonna take me a while:) Glad your saving them! I've seen some pretty amazing rooms so far!:)

Glenda said...

ME TOO HAVE A BIT TO GO BUT THATS WHAT MAKES IT GOOD FUN. sO much to see and so many ideas and great blogs to visit,.thank you for doing this for us bloggers., love from Glenda

Bridgette Addison said...

This is sooooo inspiring to say the least!!! I love seeing the things people create, especially the studios. I too am lucky enough to have my own space, hopefully I'll get to show it next year....I'm only new to blogging so didn't know where to start..... To me there are soooo many winners, so good luck with choosing the one. Thanks for the inspiration.. xx

Karin said...

I have a way to go...but I'm determined to finish the list!! Thanks for hosting!!

Hearts Turned said...

You sure know how to throw a party, Karen! I've been enjoying everyone's creative spaces...your's is beautiful! So many things to inspire!

Hope you're getting some rest and enjoying what you've created for everyone!


Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

Hi Karen... I still have alot to look at, and yes I am pooped!!! I've seen so many beautiful and creative spaces, thanks for hosting such a great event, it really made us get on the ball and get our studio in order! Blessings~~~Daphne

Anonymous said...

I'm still working through the list and yes I'm pooped, lol! It's been a blast though:)

FlowerLady Lorraine said...

This party is going to be a long one, but an enjoyable one. I've been so inspired and have started on making my own space better.

I hope you will be leaving this up for awhile because it does take time to go through the list.

Thank you for hosting this wonderful event. And thank you to all those who participated, for sharing your creative spaces.


Tins and Treasures said...

Good Morning, Karen,
I am so glad you will be leaving the list up...it may take me a couple of weeks to get to everyone's place. I am moving my mom to an assisted living facility this month and am spending most of my time at her little apartment... No internet service there, of course. I sneak away while she is napping...head over to the Liquid Bean for a coffee and to check in with all you wonderful blog friends. Your inspiration has kept me going. Thanks again. ~Natalie

Victoria said...

Hi Karen, thanks for the beautiful blog party and putting out this magnificent vibe into the universe!

It has been wonderful exploring everyone's special spaces and discovering creative talent everywhere! I was very shy to join something like this..but I am happy I did, there have been loads of wonderful people! Still more to explore. thanks for all your energy and effort!

I was wondering( I know this must be so much work for you)but..do you also ever do these blog hops around the holidays/winter..I imagine there would be many that have a holiday-esque vibe to their studios and also the work they do. Just wondering..it would be magical as well!But then again,it would probably be too busy a time of year for all.

Thanks again for letting me join and play..it was wonderful. Congrats to all the winners and Happy Creating everyone.

Michelle May-The Raspberry Rabbits said...

I'm having a wonderful time visiting with everyone. I started at the bottom of the list and am working my way up. I'm to the R's now. I'm taking my time and enjoying the visit.
Thanks so much for another wonderful party!
Hugs to you!

Deb said...

Hi Karen
Having a wonderful time visiting such amazing Studio/Creative spaces! Unfortunately, my link is Wrong & goes to my "old" blog. When you get to mine could you please change it when you paste it to it's "permanent home" :-) Thanks Karen ♥

Diane said...

Help....where do I start to see the wonderful links...I can't seem to find them at all and i have been so looking forward to this....what am I missing...sorry to be so "dumb", but where are they???

Recycled Rita said...

Hi Karen!
I am sooo enjoying the tours! Thank you so much for hosting this, I wish I had a studio to share! karen.....
ps...I am only on the C's!

Amber Leilani said...

i am very pooped and probably only about a quarter of the way through...i started at the top, moved to the bottom, and have decided to keep going this way until i meet in the middle. keeps it fresh that way!

Lisa said...

WOW! I've seen some awesome things lately! Thanks to you for hosting this event...it was my first, but not my last! Your studio is so elegant and like a breath of fresh air! Thanks for sharing yours with all of us! I still have several to visit, but I'm working on it :)
Have a great day!

Susan Houseman said...

I haven't gotten that far but I have so many ideas for my studio. I recently painted the wall in my studio, and am waiting for the right pieces to put up.
Thanks again for hosting this party.

Anonymous said...

Karen, no way! LOL! Haven't visited everyone but will! What a trip! And you're amazing! This has been such a huge project for you!
And you're busy already! I know we all are grateful for this wonderful opportunity! I've told the gals in my art group and if you have the stamina to do this again next year, don't be surprised if the number of studio links doubles!
Hugs! Hope you got a good night's sleep! ;-)

Laura Quaglia (Fun With This and That) said...

Hi I missed getting in the party .but that is okay .I'm so new at this bloggging You have had the best idea. Maybe we could have tours of homes.Thank You for your work. Laura Q

Silver Strands said...

Just found you and totally enjoyed scrolling through your blog ....
Happy Tuesday!

Sandy said...


I think your party was beyond a huge success and I have only gone through the B's so far! I do not envy your or Jo to pick winners from so many wonderful spaces. Don't work too hard and a bliss filled day!

Jillayne said...

Me, I am just in the Ds! Karen, this is amazing and now that it has begun I cannot believe the amount of work you have done! I think you will need a lot of R & R when this is all said and done!

Julie Marie said...

Hi Karen, yes I am totally pooped! But I am having so much fun! I too shall visit each and every one, no matter how long it takes me! I am kind of going in random order then marking down the ones I visit so the people at the end of the list, the Z's, don't feel left out! Thanks again for hosting such a wonderful party! xoxo Julie Marie PS I have made sooo many new friends!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

The inspiration I am getting from everyone is unbelievable! I only hope that I can have a home office/creative space as beautiful as some of those I've seen some day. It's been a lot of fun, but I'm a bit slow going as I try to keep up with the blogs I follow regularly AND visit everyone here.

Pat said...

Karen, Girl you are 'da bomb'!! (do they still say that?) This is my first blog-party and it is the best experience!! I have 'met' some of the best, nicest bloggers. I am trying sooo hard to organize my workspace as well as my blog and I have picked up so many ideas and tips. thank you for all the hard work you are doing--I know it takes alot to get this party up and running. You are the best, Lots of love,

Pat, A Remade Life

Claudia said...

I am up to the K's. I think it is important to leave a comment as well as read the post and I am diligently trying to do that.

It sure is a lot of fun! Such creative bloggers out there - I feel like I've had hundreds of private studio tours.

Thanks again, Karen!


Create With Joy said...

Thank you for your hard work Karen - I am SO grateful that you are putting together the site so that we can all enjoy everyone's beautiful creative spaces all year long - I know I will need a long time to get thru them all, and will be returning to my faves again and again!


Angela Richardson said...

Hi Karen,
I'm so enjoying this party, Thanks so much. My Mouse House space will be benefiting from all those wonderful inspirational ideas.
I'm only slowly working through, It could take quite a while. I'm trying to say something nice to everyone I visit and trying to keep up with work and my regular bloggy friends.
Enjoy a snooze with you feet up, you deserve it!!

anythinggoeshere said...

I have made it into the "t's" but it sure has taken some time. When I get to the end I am going to do a post about my favorites... probably in a day or two. xo Joan@anythinggoeshere

gm glimmerglass said...

Hi Karen!

About two blogs into the Party List, I realized I was going to need a separate bookmark folder so I can revisit these ladies as they get back to "it."

So many great designers, artists and writers! I have loved reading the descriptions and stories as much as looking at all the gorgeousness.

I am truly grateful and happy to see so many women following their own path and creating such beauty in the world.


:-) Genevieve

Charlene said...

Yeah, I'm running behind on all the visits too. Having the GRANDS put a real damper on "My TIME FOR ME" Thanks for being such a great hostess. HUGS!

Angela Weimer said...

Karen, I am definately pooped but still going and only on the b's ouch....having only a few hours a night does not help but I will get there. I cannot believe how many beautiful places I have seen thus far and I am sure there are tons more. thanks for throwing such a wonderful party. Can't wait to stop by everyones blog. Angela

Shane Pollard said...

THIS is such a fun way tp while away an hour with my coffee!

Marina Capano said...

Hi Karen your party was terrific! I can see wonderful porchs, and I haven´t seen all porchs yet! It is imposible, I can understand you!
I send my special link becouse when you can visit me directly and you don´t browse in my blog!!!post
I hope you can understand my english!!!


Stephanie Suzanne Designs said...

OMG! I can't even imagine how anyone has visited and left comments on that many blogs already...We obviously have some "super powered" ladies in our midst..LOL

I'm about where you are on the list..this is so much fun and I like to talk so that means it'll take me 2 months to visit everyone. :0)

And with Jo traveling and doing photo shoots I wonder how long it'll take her to personally stop at every blog to be able to make her decision?

Thanks for your update.. back to it!
Have a great day, Karen
Stephanie ♥

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

I am not going to be able to visit everybody this week (Paper Cowgirl) so I really appreciating you providing a direct link to everybody's post Karen. You're the hostess w/ the mostest!

ferdigal54 said...

Hi Karen, I have to tell you I am not a blogger myself, but I am an avid blog reader and follower of your blog.
Thank you so much for hosting this amazing blog party. I am loving it, and am so inspired. Thank you, thank you.

The Tin Rabbit said...

Hi Karen! What a great party!!! So much fun going from blog to blog~ meeting and checking out everyones spaces! Thank you for all your hard work! Hope you are getting some rest now! Ann

Gail said...

I am going to be several months at least getting to visit each and everyone, oh my I can not just zip through the studios, I have to stay for awhile and look real close, and check out earlier posts as well. I have not finished the A's yet. So glad you are keeping everyone up so I don't miss anyone.

Elyse said...

hi karen,

it's so fun though! i am just amazed and inspired over and over (and over) again.

i'm still doing a lot of hopping, no organized plan YET but i'm getting there.

thanks again for all of the time you put into this. very fun!


Liz-Anna said...

I'll be plugging away at this list for a while yet! I'm so glad it will be up for a while. I like to take some time to read some of the other blog entries that tweak my interest so it takes a while. Thanks so much for putting this together for all of us!

Romeo said...

You've got to be kidding?! Some people are done, have seen it all?!?! Gee, I guess I need to take my cat-vitamins and drink extra cream, I'm only on the "d" section. Of course I am visiting anyone who has left a comment - so I guess technically I have seen more than A through C...this counts right? (Work with me here)....Well I am taking naps (maybe too many it would seem since I'm only on the d's) but what I've seen so far shows some VERY talented folks and I am having a good time. Thanks again so much for hosting this event!!!


Romeo and "her"

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Thanks Karen, for the great party, I am glad to be part of it and enjoying visiting others. Thanks for having us here, the party is still on, I have more to visit. And I am SURE to be back next year!

Marianne said...

This party is so much fun! But I haven't even made a dent in the list of places to visit. I just take ages reading just one post. I keep going back and back to look at the pictures and the details. Good thing the permalinks will be kept so I can keep chipping away at it for weeks to come.
Thank you again for hosting!!!!

Anonymous said...

I'm racing with time, trying to visit everyone, leave comments back, and still have a normal kinda day. Ha-haa!!! Not possible. :)

But please let me say thank you again, Karen. I was apprehensive about posting about my tiny space - but I'm so glad I did. The best thing about this party has been meeting so many wonderfully talented artisans!


Unknown said...

What a wonderful idea to copy and paste the post links. I am in the process of moving my art room and thought I would love to reference the links to Where Bloggers Create for ideas.

Thank you for hosting such a wonderful party. I have been blogging since 2007 and now we have so much creative inspiration around us. Thanks to bloggers like you.

laurie -magpie ethel said...

Thanks for hosting this event..is really fun to see such a variety of creative spaces. It is taking me forever to go thru them tho...I think you are ahead of me alphabetically!

debi said...

Karen, thanks so much for hosting this wonderful party again this year!
I'm having so much fun visiting SO MANY beautiful and inspiring spaces.
I've already found so many new ideas that I want to add to my own space....including repainting! lol

Denise said...

I have been enjoying looking at all the spaces. I look at a few each night and then dream about my space and how I will use the ideas I saw to make my space a little more special. Thanks for all the hard work in putting this together! And thanks to all the creaters that put their spaces on the blog.

Kristin said...

Thank you for all the time and energy it must take to put this party together - it has been so much fun (I personally got to about 50+) - and I look forward to changing it up if you have a repeat next year. I am so inspired to do and show more after having seen all the wonderful spaces out there!
Thank you once again,
Kristin xo

A Cottage Industry said...

Thank you so much for all of your hard work here Karen!!! This was a great party!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am still getting through the list, and enjoying every minute of it!!

A Fanciful Life said...

I can't believe some people have made it through the whole list! This is going to take me a while, so glad you are leaving the links up. What a great party!
Sharon :-)

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

I have so enjoyed myself and have changed into my comfy shoes, hee hee. Still have many friends to visit, but wanted to stop and say thanks for doing this! What a delight to meet all these new people! Blessings.

Francie...The Scented Cottage Studio said...

LOL ohhh I am still visiting too.
I started at the bottom of the list then started jumping around. It's a lot of fun, thanks Karen !

Anonymous said...

Hi Karen, this has been quite an adventure! It's hard to just visit everyone's studio when there are some many pretty creations to discover as well. I'm pacing myself, but I'll get through them all. I started at the end and have worked my way backwards, only in the 'Ns'.

D.M. SOLIS said...

Incredibly generous blog. Thank you for sharing so much here. Peace and continued good things for you in creativity and in life. Sincerely,


Unknown said...

Oh My Lord! I started from the bottom and went up... I still am only to the K's... How do these girls do it?!

I have no idea how you are going to pick. I have seen sooo many great places. Good luck with that! :)


Plumrose Lane said...

You're such a darling for doing all this work, thank you! I know I haven't been able to get to all the participants yet so I sure appreciate the extra time!

And now there's one more comment for you to read. ;D

Cheryl ~ ZanyMayd said...

I was starting to think I was the Only Slow one ~ I am edging to the bottom of Only the 1st grouping.... I then may switch it up and go from the bottom (which I know I can skip Z for Me) I was late for the Party with posting photos ~ Friday Night, My Camera Cord Broke, I had to wait for the arrival of a new cord that came on Tuesday....
This has been so much fun ~ I love the Inspiration, The Similarity & Some Very Different Ideas ~

But in the mean time, still trying to limit my time on the computer & get some work done ~

Thanks for such a Fun Party, Really Appreciate all the work & time you put into this Memorable P A R T Y !


Lynnae said...

You are Amazing. You've made a lot of people happy this summer. I'm only about 1/4 through, but I started in the middle. I could go on and on, but I'm going back in for more bloggy goodness!
Thanks Karen

Cindy Adkins said...

Hi Karen...I feel like my hands are going to fall off--and in the meantime I just made a new piece to put in a new drawing on my blog--this time it's a vintage necklace...
Your blog and art art AMAZING and you are beautiful like a model--oh my gosh!!!

Mosaic Magpie said...

This has been such a great time and we are all meeting new friends!
That's what it is all about isn't it, being inspired and sharing with new found friends.

Kath' said...

I haven't gotten that far on the list. I can't believe people are done with it already. I do a few every night when everyone goes to bed, and real early in the morning before they all get up.
I want to let you know that I had so much fun and think it is so neat that no matter what walk of life we come from and no matter where we live across the world each one of us has this same picture in our homes. I can't wait to do some more fun things. I am so glad I have met you and will follow your life. Kath'

Hi Karen: I wanted to just say that I love your "unfinished" piece....and I hope that you will definitely cut yourself some major slack because you have been so busy with the blog party and all of your work [and renovations!!]. The good news is that there is always a next time to make that project :) Take care! Your friend, Rebecca

Unknown said...
