I just made a new treasury late last night inspired by nature. I must say, this is one of my favorite treasuries that I have made! I love the way the colors look together, and the random selection of items. Come check it out: nature.

I love it!

My Creative Haven

I used to live in a one bedroom apartment in which the living room was also my studio. It was a hassle to set up my "work station" each morning and then take it down at the end of the day. Well, we recently moved into our first house, and I actually have a room designated for my studio!

Exciting, huh?

Only problem is we have much that still needs to be unpacked, and my studio is full of boxes. Literally. There is a small walking path through the room. That is it. So, I was resorting to the living room/studio scenario again...

And then, I commandeered the dining room! It is not perfect. My cats spend a good chunk of the day trying to figure out how to play with my beads. Then one of my dogs gets lonely and wants to sit on my lap for a while... But it does beat the living room situation.

Here is my temp studio:

It is a complete mess right now, and I need to organize all my supplies better once I get in my real studio. But for the time being it is working out okay...

Treasury Thursday

I was quite excited when I noticed that the treasury count was down to 355 this morning. I decided I would wait around for it to drop below 333 so I could make a treasury. I love making treasuries, and I have not had much of a chance to make any lately.

Today I was in a purple mood. I titled my treasury "Purple People Eater." Remember that from when you were a kid? One day I decided to dress completely in purple to preschool. I don't know why, I guess I just really liked my purple outfit (even my velcro shoes). One of my teachers called me a purple people eater. Hah!

Check out some of the great items I found and included in my treasury:
