Where Bloggers Create

This is my second year participating in the "Where Bloggers Create" party at My Desert Cottage, and I'm so excited to join in again!
You are going to be completely amazed at Karen's studio space, and then you will get the treat of touring many other creative spaces of talented women across the blog world. 

My space is quite humble compared to many others, but I'm throwing any worry of that out the window and welcoming you into my little corner of the creative world. 

I'm so glad you're here! 

I don't have a "real" designated studio/creative space in our home. If you've been following Creating a Life for awhile, you've seen me sharing about how my creative projects tend to spread throughout our living space, and mostly here in what is really our dining room space! My family is very patient : )

This week, I turned this old dresser into an official work island. 

I'll be sharing all the details about this project soon. 

For now, please feel free to have a look around my creative space as I share some of my favorite things to create with. 

You can see a bit more about this "rescued" cabinet here.


You can visit The Penny and The Pearl to see some of our handmade {and vintage!} items in the shop.

Thanks for visiting my creative space today! If you haven't made your way here directly from the Where Bloggers Create party, be sure and head over there to see all of the creative spaces being shared!

  1. Wow, these are incredible! Who knew all those gorgeous colours could be found in the sky?

  2. Eating is over rated. I'd rather play in your dining room than eat. Beautiful space - beautiful work. Thank you for opening your home to us.

  3. There is so much genious here! But your artistic eye transends even that! I love the way you have put this space together and showed it off!

  4. Adorable. I can't wait to read about that work station.

  5. hat dresser redo is amazing! I adore your work spaces....

  6. That cabinet turned out to be a great bookshelf in your creative space, Jeanette! I love how much storage it will give you. The dresser idea is wonderful! I love the room you've given yourself on the top of it, too. Every space counts in my opinion. It was only a few years ago I was working at a tiny spot in our garage, until we moved and I got an actual space, but I was proud and pleased of my little garage spot.

  7. Very creative. I love how you displayed the scripture. What a wonderful truth. You have a very nice space.
    Thanks for sharing it. I linked my closet sewing space.

  8. I Love your Creative Space... it is so Welcoming and Bright! How Fun is it to be able to Visit so many other Creative Souls at this Party and be Invited in to our most Intimate Personal Spaces that reveal the Essence of our Creative Souls!?
