Welcome to the Party!!!


Wow, I can't believe it's finally here! It seems like I have doing preparations for months!! Wait... I have!!! First, I would like to welcome everyone who is participating in the party, and everyone else, who weren't able to show us their spaces, but who are still visiting all the amazing and talented women who are gathered here. It has been so much fun putting together this event.
The final count for our party list is over 450!!! (Last year it was 150) I can't wait to come and visit each and every one of you! It's probably going to take me 2 months to reach you all, so I will be a busy girl for a while! I will be putting a direct link to each of the party guests post on the Where Bloggers Create blog. ( I will put a link to it on my blog as soon as it is ready.) So have no fear, the list will be available all year. Now, let me show you around my space!



This is the view you see when you first walk in the room. All the furniture you see comes from either Goodwill, or Garage Sales. I love to take used pieces and paint them up and give them a whole new life.


When my son moved out of this room a few years ago, I was thrilled to take it over! We recently tore out the old carpet and replaced it with a laminate wood floor from IKEA. I love it, and the price was sooo right!

These spools of lace DO get used... but not if I can help it!!! I like the way they look in the apothecary jars!



These are just a couple of little projects I have on display.


The cabinet on the wall came from IKEA as well. It used to be red. Before I put it together, I painted all the pieces white and ...


decoupaged the inside with book pages, postcards, and letters. It's the perfect size to hold all my little do-dads.


An old ceiling tin makes a great bulletin board.


An old dining room table makes a great desk.



The bookcase used to be brown. It is just a basic "put it together yourself" piece that you can get anywhere. I decoupaged music sheets this time to the back and stapled lace across the front of each shelf.

I can't help myself. Ivy goes just about anywhere!!!


I love wooden cigar boxes for storing odds and ends.



I love making shadowboxes filled with vintage images.


Would you like to take a peak inside some of my drawers!???? I was lucky enough to grab a HUGE bag of old lace at a recent church rummage sale for the bargain price of $3.00.


I collect stuff wherever I find it...including the hardware store!


Paper Tools

Inks, chalks, stain and glazes

I love rubber art stamps!


I try to stay organized. Putting my ribbon in bags according to color works pretty well. That is... when I put it away where it belongs, and don't just shove it back in the drawer!!!


My constant companions!!!




Now my creative space tour is not complete with out showing you the place where I spend most of my creative time these days. This is my office. It is on the other side of the wall from the studio and is part of my master bedroom. This is where my most valuable creative tool resides. My computer, my Mac to be exact. I love it, and I love what I do with it. I am one of those very lucky people who can say I love what I do. And it all started with you guys. I fell in love with blogging, with the women who blog, and with helping you make your blogs beautiful. Since I started Valentine Design in March (You can click HERE if you want to see some of the blog designs that I have done) I have had the pleasure of helping so many of you build the blog of your dreams. Nothing makes me happier, than when I get an email from a client who is
thrilled with the look of their new blog. I never thought I would ever be able to earn a living being creative and doing something that makes people happy!!! I am very blessed.



I would like to thank Jo Packham and the wonderful folks at Where Women Create Magazine for helping to make this years event so incredible. In case you missed the May/June issue.. this is it and I am on the inside pages, in the company of some incredibly talented women. This all started with last years party, and now one year later there I am. At least one lucky gal is going to find herself in the pages of this fabulous magazine too!!! Isn't that exciting??? I'm sure Jo is going to have a really hard time choosing, if this year is anything like last year.

But there are even more great prizes! 2 party guests are going to receive a one year subscription to the magazine!



And one of you will receive both of Jo's books filled with more inspiration than any one person can handle!

And last but not least, a beautiful Where Women Create charm bracelet!

Well, we better get started. We have lot's and lot's of studio spaces to drool over! Pace yourself girls. Drink lot's of fluids and remember to get up and stretch now and then. Remember...this is a marathon, not a sprint!!! Have Fun!!!!

KarenHarveyCox said...

Karen,
Thank you for hosting such a wonderful event.

I remember years ago when I was decorating my studio and looking for storage ideas. I went to the book store and it was slim pickings. When I got my first copy of Jo Packman's Where Women Create I cried. I cried because it was such a joy to see so many kindred spirits all in the same place.

I have been blog hopping already, and the ideas and inspiration is amazing.

Your studio is beautiful, and I loved the article in the latest magazine. We are so blessed to be connected to so many creative spirits.

Karen

Congratulations on being featured in the magazine, I just got my copy today... I too love the look of ivy with things and have it all over my house as well... your spools of vintage lace are especially pretty in your apothecary jars... once again, Merci! xoxo Julie Marie

Dear Karen:
Thanks so much for being such a gracious hostess! Your creative spaces are scrumptious, and I so enjoyed your tour. My post will go up at midnight, so I hope you'll visit soon to see what I've done since last year. I really had a ball preparing for the party. Thanks for the inspiration.
Blessings,
Donna

Lady Pamela said...

Beautiful AND organized! Your creative space is just perfect. So sorry I could not participate this year, but nothing has changed in my space since last year (except it is a bit messier) ;)

Queen of Dreams said...

Wow, Karen, I'm so inspired by how special your space is - everything is so beautifully put together! I feel like I've entered into a sweet, vintage shop. I'm loving that ceiling tin bulletin board!

Thanks for the inspiration, and thanks for making this get together possible!

Thanks again,

just a little bit shabby said...

As a former Scottsdale resident I'd like to tell you it was nice to take the tour through your lovely studio. I am in the process of building my craft/family room so this party will be VERY valuable for me. The construction should be done in 2-3 weeks and I will start moving all my "stuff" into it. This party will give me lots of good ideas to add to my room. Thanks!!

zandra said...

I was in it last year and had a blast. So, glad you could do it again and saw you in Artful blogging! How cool, Karen! I started with the A's and some don't have there's up yet. I'll have to start the B's tomorrow. Just love this party and your space is as beautiful as ever! Always love to visit.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

You have the most gorgeous space to work in. I love your table turned desk that I saw last year. Something I don't remember from last year, and I think is brilliant, is how you turned a basic brown shelving unit into a stunning beauty, complete with lace trim on the front. Simply STUNNING.

Thank you again for organizing this and for all the hard work preparing for it.

debi said...

Karen, I LOVE your studio! It definitely looks like you with the soft color scheme. It's dreamy. I could get lost in there.

I see a few ideas in your studio that I think I will be using.

Thanks for hosting this amazing party again...I can't wait to visit everyone's spaces, and be super inspired!

Heather ~Pretty Petals said...

Your workspace is just AMAZING... I love the empty picture frames on the wall... SO CLEVER! I also love the view when you first walk in... so pretty.

Thank you for inviting us to this wonderful party... and for putting it all together for us to enjoy. You must have worked so hard!

Will be finishing my photos in the morning! Can't wait to visit all the beautiful creative spaces.

xoxo Heather

Elsina said...

Love your workspace, the amount of space but especially the colors, so tranquil. Must be super to work in such a space. Love it!

Gail said...

Karen,
Your space is smashing! Thanks for paying it forward and having this wonderful event once again, I'm thrilled to be included.....off to check out some spaces!

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Hi Karen,
I'm so happy the party has started and we can all get inspired together again this year! I knew your creative space would be beautiful again, I love those architectural pieces and photos of your son and the dogs speak to my very sentimental heart. I too love my Mac, it makes life easier for certain!

You don't know how I've looked forward to this party, worked very hard getting it just right and have to say, it's been a joy again to visit with you. I am so looking forward to visiting all the guests attending! Oh yes, wow... 450, that is fantastic. I am so happy you're doing what you love, know I've said it before but it's spectacular now isn't it?

donna...@ d. reyné.com said...

Hi Karen!
You have a wonderful space to work in!
I love the bagged ribbon idea...but I too would have a hard time putting it back like I found it!
Thank you for hosting such a fun party!
It really has been fun visiting everyone's amazing spaces!
Have a fablous weekend
Blessings,
Donna

Cindy said...

I am enjoying visiting all my friends and their craft rooms.
thanks for organizing this.I din't enter..as most of our stuff is in storage..as we are leaving our home of 23 years and packed up 34 years of our life..to move into a 5th wheel.I will craft in there..but with a tiny space! lol

I noticed that one of your companions is a corgi. We have one also. They are such great companions!! Does your shed? that to me is the only draw back.The shedding!!

Have fun!! Rest..you need it!

Rebecca said...

Karen...

First I want to tell you how much I LOVE your studio! It is truly inspiring and I devoured every picture and each of your written words. I feel your passion and I'm thrilled beyond words that you are able to make a living doing what you love.

Second...I want to say a HUGE Thank You for hosting this party for us again this year. I can't believe 450...that is 300 more than last year! That is absolutely amazing and I think that the Where Women Create Staff need to CREATE a position for you permanently. You've helped to put this magazine on the map. How fabulous is that!?

Anyway, I don't want to take tons of your space up saying what I've already said...I just hope you know how much you and all your hard work means to us all.

God's best to you. May He continue to guide you in all things.

Love to you~

Rebecca @A Gathering Place/of Thoughts

My Arts Desire said...

Karen, Thank you for ALL the time you have invested in throwing this fabulous party! It will be like having a magazine a gazillion pages long filled with all the stuff we love to see. So much inspiration...I'm actually keeping a notebook handy to jot down all my notes from the party. The vintage collages you make are just heavenly, as is your space/blog/article. Thanks again for making this possible! xo, Sue

luluslovlies said...

Hi Karen, Thanks so much for hosting this event, this was just the incentive I needed to get my space organized.I know I'm not magazine worthy but I love the corner of my creative world and being able to share it. I'll be popping in and out tomorrow as I have a dance recital for my Granddaughter to attend and her baby brothers 1st Birthday. I'm up and posted, actually 2 posts as I have a room and 1/2 so it was easier to separate them in 2 posts but I did it and feel accomplished as I'm still a bit techie challenged. Blessings! XOXO

Vintage French Hen said...

I love your creative space Karen! I really like the look of the ceiling tins for a bulletin board, way cool!

Thanks so much for organizing this wonderful event!!!
Love Lou xx

La Doña Jenny said...

Thank you Karen,

Your space is just so gorgeous. I just adore how you are able to use white in so many diffent ways and shades and it all looks so cohesive. YOU do inspire me, especially speaking as a very new blogger (started in late April), I became discouraged just could not connect with anyone. You and Lovey from Fabric Photo Memories and Tracie from My Petite Maison were so gracious to give some bloggy guidance. Thank you and thank you for putting this blog party together- I can't wait to make new friends. Blessings.

Something Special said...

Well your space should have definitely graced the pages of Where women Create. Cause it just fits so well. What a very lovely wonderful space. Mine looks very different, but I would rather be in there creating (almost) than any where else.

She said...

WOW, Karen your space is gorgeous! LOVE it! Mine is very tiny and untidy in comparison! I'll blog the pictures anyway - just hope people aren't disappointed! Looking forward to seeing lots of crafty space! S xxx

Thanks for hosting, Karen! I started reading posts last night and I'm sure I'll be going into next week. I love your studio and how well-organized you are. It must be a real pleasure to enter this room to create. I just recently subscribed to the magazine, but I think I will miss out on seeing your piece {I'll probably get the next issue}.

Debby said...

Hi Karen, I am in love with your creative space. It is full of so much inspiration and beauty. I really like the big ole clocks you have hanging about. The rusty tiles are fab.

MosaicMagpie said...

Karen,
Thank you so much for hosting this party. This party has encouraged me to clean up and respect my workspace. There is something about having a beautiful space, that encourages beautiful work. I never realized this before, I thought you could create about anywhere. You can, it's just something about an area that is dedicated to you and for you that somehow makes the work special. I see this, in the spaces of Artist whose work I love. Thank you again for not only opening my eyes to my enviroment but also for encouraging me to want the best creative space I can imagine.

Dorthe said...

Oh sweet Karen,
Thanks so much for making this happen ,it is fantastic, a wonderfull party.
And your room is a dream, so lovely, and so beautifull. I love everything inside, your shadowboxes

Hugs, Dorthe

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Karen,
I've told you before how beautiful I think your studio is. I envy your ability to take the ordinary & turn it into something incredable. Your home is really one of my absolute faves. Your studio has the same wonderful style as everything else you touch. Each vignette, better than the last. Great idea with the ceiling tin bulletin board, I've gotten some great ideas visiting everyone today! I'm so proud of what you have accomplished in the past year. Pretty mind blowing huh?! I'm honored to be a part of the biggest party of the year (my kiddos are too)! Talk soon, looking forward to our trip. Lisa

It was a real treat to see all of the nooks and crannies of your space Karen. I have looked forward to this day for months. Lots of work went on getting my space ready! Thanks for all of your hard work to make this so much fun! I'm getting so much inspiration and I've just barely started!
Thanks, too, to Jo for being supportive of this project. We are all so happy in our respective studios and it's nice to be recognized. Don't you think that craftpeople do a lot to support Ikea? whre would we be without them? LOL!
Happy Hopping!

Take care and rest! Sherry

She'sSewPretty said...

First let me add my thanks to you Karen for this fun party. I am moving and will be using our new family room for my office. I'm looking at all of the studios today for inspiration. Your studio is gorgeous and I am coveting all of your pretty lace.

Deborah said...

Wonderful! I love the way you make use of what is available and change it to make it yours. I love what you did with the ikea cabinet, I am going to have to try that myself. I also had no idea they sold flooring. It is a great store.

Myrna said...

I just LOVE your studio, Karen! I have the copy of Where Women Create that you are featured in...

I bumped into the badge for your event over at Debby's blog, The Gathering Nest. I adore stumbling across blog events like these - I'll be doing a post about it next Tuesday. And I'll be sure to mark this time in my calendar for next year so I can be a participant.

I love both of your spaces, and the restful colors you've used. Love the shot of your dogs! And using the tin ceiling tiles as a memo board - totally fabulous idea.

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

Your studio has such a fresh, yet vintage look Karen...I love it! And how brave of you to show inside your drawers. ;o) I think my favorite detail in your studio is the wall of frames...tying them together was a wonderfully creative idea!

I couldn't help but get sad over seeing your doggies. If my Gizzy were still alive, I'd have had to include him as he was always at my feet. I love Cutie Rudy too but he's not my dog, he's the family dog so Gizzy's bed in my studio remains empty most of the time. *sniff sniff*

Thank you so much for hosting this wonderful party, I can only imagine teh amount of work you put into it.

Jeniffer said...

This is my first year attending and participating in the party. I am absolutely loving every minute of it. Thank you for this inspirational opportunity.

By the way your space is gorgeous. I adore the creative ways you have modified the furniture and fixtures.

Karen, it was so exciting to just publish the pictures and stories I was able to save prior to the publishing time. Thank you so much for this opportunity. Being new at blogging and selling my knitting is very exciting. Mirrors are one of the items I use in my office but had not thought about them for "my creative space". Your inspiration helped me. The English Ivy just says Welcome. Goodness, the lace you found was a real treasure. Your companions are the best. So peaceful. Thank you again for the inspiration. Jan

Shugee @ Blue Heron Cottage said...

Karen I love your works space and also your desk with the inspiration board! You are a very special lady and I thank you with all my heart for hosting this special event. I've enjoyed it tremendously. Also, two of my favorites things in your special place are the shadowboxes you created and the tin bulletin board. They are fantastic.
Hugs,
Kim

Kirsten Alicia said...

Hello Karen, I am SO glad I found your blog via WWC. Your space is absolutely & stunningly, BEAUTIFUL. Ond day I hope I will have a creative space of my own & yours will be an inspiration to me. For various reasons, I have neglected my blog in the last few months. Thank you for inspiring me to go back to it. Have a great weekend.

kimberlyshaw said...

Your studio and office space are gorgeous. I love your style and colors, it's all so dreamy. I love how you were able to use your son's old room for your own personal space to create in. I did the same with the kid's playhouse we built for them. Love your Ikea shelves, too. I love Ikea. I went to buy a rectangular white desk and came home with a red peanut shaped desk which I love.

Thanks so much for be a very gracious hostess of a wonderful event. I'm sure it will take me a while to visit each one, I'm really looking forward to that, but I will eventually get through them all.

I appreciate you!

Joan@anythinggoeshere said...

I would love to win any of the prizes! I think that is so wonderful that you were featured in the magazine and that they are participating in the party.

Elyse said...

hi karen,

isn't is astounding how a seemingly little interest like blogging can have such a positive impact on our lives? look at you in print -- look at me in print -- amazing!

this party of yours is brilliant and i'm thrilled to witness it's growth spurt and to participate for the 2nd time. i am so enjoying reading everyone's posts. i can be a real hit-and-run blogger due to time restraints, but for this, i am just staying hydrated and basking in the ideas out there to be found.

thank you so much for being the hostess with the mostest. it's obvious the work that went into this and i'm so thankful for your generosity of time.

sorry to ramble. this is quite an experience!
