Sometimes you need a little purple....

It came up suddenly,
on a whim,
jump in with both feet,
don't take time to think
about it
Jennifer had this house to rent
we cut a deal.
I have needed a place to work.
For all the years that I have painted
I have used spare bedrooms.
I have secretly coveted spaces those people
that have posted pictures of their
studios and craft spaces
on social media.
(although I secretly wonder about
the organization and
cleanliness of them)
I have toyed with an idea of a camp
for years,
a she shed,
a creative space.
I have pictured it my mind many times.
So, here I go!  
The purple?  
I have already  heard comments of
crack house,
meth lab,
and one well-meaning niece who
thinks I am channeling my
1970's years
and honestly,
those are from friends and family
who love me!
The outside of this house is bland.
 I want the inside to scream
Anything but boring! 
So, I am off and running!
Want to follow along? 
If you live close, drop in!
If not, follow along,
more pics to come!
Spa Blue is going on the next room!

Bring on the color! Don't let anyone hold you back! My stitching room is lilac. People comment all the time. It's wonderful to be surrounded by color!

You've got a whole house for a craft space? I think I'm I personally prefer light colors on walls but I'm also a firm believer in doing what makes you happy. If purple is it then good for you :)

How Awesome! Can't wait to see it all finished!
I long for one of those spaces (studios) also!
