WHERE BLOGGERS CREATE. . . My Creative Space (Consists of 3 posts)

Up above the Memory Room board in my Creative world is a quote which states.   "A person is only as Big as the dream they dare to Live"    Imagine Design and Create.  My favorite space!



This is what it looks like as you enter the room.
My Creative Space used to be primarily a scrapbooking room, named 'The memory Room. But now is really a creative-designing room as well. I create the designs I do for "Story Tellers Club" and this is where I decide what will be made and put into the swapping that I have come to love from blogging. I have pictures of all of my family in here, and all the things that I love and vintage things that inspire me as well. But this is also where when I have the time, that I do scrapbook all those wonderful photos that my big family gives to me. I have a TV in here that is not hooked up to satellite, but has a built in DVD player so I can watch my favorite movies and 'Little house on the Prairie episodes. I need calm in here, so I want to control what is watched. Much Jane Austen movies and masterpiece theatre goes on in here, while I work. My sewing room is separate from this room, and there is not a computer in here either.
I have thought of redoing the walls, but I love color and the wallpaper border is outdated, but nonetheless perfect for scrapbooking inspiration. I think I will leave it, because all of the colors are the colors I love and have all over this little room. I have a beautiful window I can look out as I work.  The quilt on the wall was made by my daughter, of our family for our 25th wedding anniversary.  I have been married for 32 years now.   I have these units in here that were made for scrapbooking, but also have the oak chair painted pink, an antique folding table and an old shabby nightstand.  The closet doors came off to make the room bigger and use the space of the closet for more storage.
I am not a black and white kind of gal. I love color!  The framed piece on this wall is a poem that a talented friend and writer wrote and gave to me about my creative and helpful hands.  It is very special to me and reminds me that my hands are not only for creating, but for SERVICE to Others!
The carpet is outdated, but it is so soft and padded that I keep it here so that my grandchildren can come in here, lay on the floor and watch a movie while I work. I recently made the cushion for this stool after painting it.  I had fun trying to figure that one out.
