It’s the everyday stuff that makes this studio home. Since it was showcased last week, I received a flood of emails and texts asking for details on some of the items in the big pictures. Let’s go on a tour…
I got the monster hat on Etsy.
Mike started a collection of vintage cameras forever ago. They’re on display on the shelves. He also painted that heart for me.
I love my album company, Album Crafters. They’re fabulous and continuously spoil me with their amazingness!
I collect gumball machines. My desk is always messy.
I spend way too much time packaging goodies. But, I love it.
The vintage windows are original to the building. The landlord was replacing them and we were in need of windows for my grand sticky note project. Done and done. The collage wall took Melissa and I three days to put together.
This is how the studio is set up right now. Tomorrow, it may be different. I love how much space there is to play in…
Coffee station one of two.
Mike’s chair. Fact: During the construction of the studio, my office had to be extended by 3 feet to accommodate Mike’s chair. When he visits, that’s where he sits. My friend, Nicole, took that picture of my people. I heart it. My friend, Caitlin, gifted me that pencil with the glasses. I use it to write important notes with. I have an obsession with washi tape. Nico made that pencil holder for me. He’s not available for commission…he only makes them for his momma.
I like candles. And the windows in my office. Oh, and the lady that lives across the way is a nudist. Um.Yeah. Awkward.
I like adding cinnamon to my latte.
Pictures. More pictures.
Stuff that’s just laying around…
My Ona bags. I big, fat, red puffy heart them. That wallpaper. OMG! Best decision ever…I’m never telling Mike how much I spent on it. Those prints are from Etsy, too.
That’s my momma. She’s so beautiful and I miss her terribly. That orange picture? That’s me. I was 5 years old.
I’m obsessed with Ocean’s 11, 12 and 13. Mike scored that autographed picture for me of “the boys”… That’s my personal white board. I got it from Ikea. That’s my favorite picture ever of Nico. He’s admiring a llama that was in the petting zoo that was set up in our yard.
I also collect coffee mugs. That’s my momma and me when I was 3…we were posing oh.so.fly next to our family Nova. Good times.
The production boards in the production room. They’re paneling boards from Lowe’s. One documents our album production. The other displays our monthly calendar. That’s Melissa’s desk. It’s way cleaner than mine.
This is where we house all of our mailing stuff and charge batteries and store client folders. Le sigh…the wallpaper.
Oh, hey…and that’s me! Hi! My door is always open for visitors…sometimes Warhol the husky and Sophie the Cockatoo are here, too. They really like visitors.
