Art School Girl

A twitter contact of mine, MeanMillies, just sent me a tweet about Art School Girl in Chicago thinking I’d like the paper products and… she’s right! Such sweet finds here.

Art School Girl is Amy Rowan who has a passion for paper and a love for specialty printing processes and so she specializes in one-of-a-kind paper goods that are made by hand. She uses recycled materials that she often prints and sews by hand. So special!

I love when readers tweet me with their finds. Thanks, Millie!

Crafty Home Studio Space

Speaking of spaces where women create, Tamar from Nest Pretty Things in Vermont contacted me over the weekend with photos of her newly designed arts and crafts studio – it’s full of positivity and warmth! I’ve been thinking about having my own room again dedicated to creative pursuits, an idea that I plan to put into motion in the months ahead. It also means I will have to move but I’m okay with that because I’ve realized that I can no longer accept my current space as being sufficient enough. It’s not, I need the space. I work from home, it’s important to have plenty of room for the many projects I have my hands in right now. I fantasize about how I want my dream room to look, I can see it so clearly… but until I can touch this dream I’m living through others, planning, thinking, and saving money!

Do you currently have a “you” room in your home? If so, would you like to link to it below in the comments section? If you do not, tell me about your dream room or point me to a photo of it online. I’d love to see and exchange some inspiration today! You can see more images and read about her studio space here.

Thank you Tamar for sharing!

Printmaker Unity Coombes

I found fine art printmaker Unity Coombes on Flickr yesterday and I really like her style, it’s right up my alley. I love this picture of Unity in her studio in Cornwall, England surrounded by her beautiful illustrations. She appears to be quite happy with the work she is doing. It’s so inspiring to see where women create, don’t you think? I especially like her birds with their patterned feathers.

I’m not sure where she sells her work, perhaps she’ll consider opening a shop at Folksy or Etsy (hint, hint).
