In the bleak midwinter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, Long ago.
~Christina Rosetti
Okay, okay... no snow here in north Texas, but it's pretty chilly and it feels like Christmas for sure. I am nearly done with my shopping and gift wrapping. I've ordered my tamales for Christmas day and mailed my packages. I feel remarkably un-stressed.
My husband is working on plans to relocate my studio downstairs to our never used dining room. We have used this room as a little sitting room and a place to keep the piano that no one plays anymore. The kids have taken piano lessons over the years, but none of them fell in love with playing, so there sits the piano. It is a lovely instrument, ordered from the factory for my husband's grandmother a thousand years ago. I love it, but it is time for someone to have it who will play and enjoy it.
The husband will be putting in some French doors and then I just need to move about a ton of supplies, but I am very excited. This room has great morning light! And I can avoid the stairs, which my knee (that I broke last spring) will appreciate. Merry Christmas, to me!
Hope your holiday preparations are going well. xo~Dale

Sounds like the perfect spot for your studio! I took over our "not-lived-in" living room for my scrap room a year or so it:) Happy Creating!

What a lovely change to look forward to in the New Year. I've always thought a studio would benefit from being on the main floor of a home. That way, you're probably near the kitchen and not missing out on the hubbub of the house. Some people like to be squirreled away in their studios. I think it better to be in a socialized area of the home. Just my 2 cents. Love the image you posted today.

Yes, I think I'll enjoy being closer to my family as I work! I can't wait!
