Welcome to my studio! This workspace is a constant work in progress. There always seems to be re-organizing, redecorating, and clean-up happening weekly. I spend so much time in there jewelry making, but also talking with my kids, face-timing my husband, creating new things, writing down ideas, hammering out stress (it's true therapy!), listening to my favorite books and songs. It is truly my "happy place"!
I have always found happy places since I was young. When I was 5 my favorite spot was behind our apartment, sitting on the steps where I remember eating warm muffins my mom baked. At 10 years old it was our living room where I would make up choreographed dances to songs by Michael Jackson and Madonna, haha. When I was 16 my happy place was at a counter in the middle of the house where I would paint and draw. My mom was nice enough to let me take over that space with my artistic messes. No matter where these places have been, I have had the same feelings of confidence, safety, happiness and love.
This time around I have been turning my studio into a happy place with meaning. A lot of it has been intentionally designed with how it makes me feel. Here is my list of 4 things you can add to your happy place to make it yours!
I would love to hear what makes your happy place so special! If yours is a work in progress like mine ALWAYS is, try adding a few of the things above to make it extra special!
