~ A peek inside my studio to see what I am currently creating.~


~ A cheery desktop! **

When I return to teach in my classroom each August ~
it always helps to have a cheerful desktop to look at daily. 
 Thank goodness this year I had my dear friend Dulcy
and wonderful Papaya to come to the rescue.
Dulcy gave me the beautiful greenish blue 
(my fave color) McCoy vase to hold things in, 
and I made a book jacket for my calendar book
from vintage french flea market lace, ribbon, 
and wrapping paper from Papaya 
(found at Good Girl Art in our city)
and the wonderful creation from favorite artist,
Anahata Katkin for it's cover.

So I am filing this under my favorite things for Sat.
(linking with Laurie's blog) because a cheerful desk
make for a happy heart!

Dulsey seems like a wonderful friend. That is a great gift and I'll bet your desk top cheers up you and everyone else in your room.
