Where Bloggers Create Party

My favorite place to create is at Creative Escape in Arizona.  Well, Silver Bella was my favorite place to create in Omaha, Nebraska......well really anywhere I travel to and create is my favorite place to create.  Actually my dining room table shared with Zandra every other Sunday would be my favorite place to create...... 
But, creating outside last Sunday was a great place to create.........
And then there is my Hoosier cabinet I use for my embellishments and ribbons that could be my favorite place.............
I do love my studio......these little drawers I picked up in my neighborhood----someone was throwing it away......I couldn't wait to decoupage it and add some fun handles........
But, this year was full of surprises......I now get to create at work.   This is our demo table at Paper Source in Princeton.....the other side is full of drawers of paper, scissors, templates, rubber stamps, and ink pads.......so this blogger gets to be creative everyday.........so this blogger creates where she works and plays and couldn't be happier!!!  But, what is great about this party is I get to see where other bloggers create........I love peeking into studios whether on flickr, two peas galleries, Where Women Create magazine......I just love seeing where you all create.  I can't wait to see all the bloggers participating in this party.   Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment it say HI!!!!!!!

Good Morning Geralyn!!!!!
You need to be called the "Suitcase Creator" with all of your creative travels! I think as long as you have paper, glue, ribbon and glitter in your purse, you'll sit and create anywhere!!!
I love that you get to play all day at work too...girl you are soooo blessed!!!!
(let me get to sleep, some of us really have do have to go to work ;)

You're so right...where ever friends and supplies are...that's the perfect place to create. I LOVED what you did with the little drawers you "inherited" from your neighborhood. Great job. : )

Terri said...

Great place to loose your self in your creativity!

Linda said...

It's amazing the studios that I see represented on various blogs - we don't have room for anything like that and if we did, it would just be my writing nook, :)

You are always so wonderfully creative!

Hope you have a grand weekend,
Linda

Wanda said...

You can't top that....a job where you get to create...paradise. :) I'm glad you found the perfect job. Take care.

Love your Hoosier filled with your creative goodies, it's super fabulous!! And how fun is it that you get to create at work? We have a Paper Source here and although I am not a paper artist, man do I love that place ... I go in there just to be inspired by all the pretty papers and everything else on display, it's such fun!

Hi!!! Great idea to create outside, but in our climate you should use a tent for the unexpected rain! But you are right, you can create anywhere, thanks for sharing!

What a fun and interesting post with a little different slant on where you create..which is where ever YOU are. Love you little trash find storage drawers. Many of my storage pieces also came from curbside.

Karen- The Graphics Fairy said...

Hi Geralyn,
Oh, I dream of going to Silver Bella, hopefully one day I will! The shop where you work looks fantastic! How fun that you get to play with all those wonderful supplies each day. Isn't it great when you can work someplace where you can do what you love?! I am lucky to be in the same situation. We get to do some crafting where I work too, all of our store gift certificates are handmade collages that we make ourselves, we have a giant bag of scrapbooking supplies in the office and we can use whatever we like!
Thanks for stopping by my blog, I enjoyed my visit here as well.
