Chantal's Studio WOW!

Ok friends...are you ready? Is this the moment you've been waiting for? It's been exactly ONE week since I had the honor of creating with Chantal at her Tidbits & Tassels retreat and I am STILL bragging about it! And, I STILL have some bragging to do because in my next post, I will show you what we made! Yay!

Below are about 22 photos. My advice to you would be for you to stop reading here, pop you some popcorn, fix you a Coke, come back, get real comfy and enjoy the show!!! ;)



I really mean IT'S SHOW TIME!!!

Well friend, so what do you think? You like? I LOVE her studio.

I could have spent the whole day just sitting there and soaking it all in instead of creating! Her home and her studio are both filled with her art and her personality. It's such a pleasure to be surrounded by all of the little DETAILS!

Thanks to Chantal for letting us snoop into her studio and for letting me share it with all of you!!!

That is a beautiful place and your post makes it so interesting. I am just doing my little thing in my little place and thankful to be able to do what I do. I am sure getting a lot of good ideas from all the beautiful places though. Thanks

How did you ever leave? I would have pitched a tent in the corner, and promised not to be in the way. It's beautiful!

Her studio is so cheery and beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

June said...

Wow Jodie, this is one gorgeous studio. I think I could actually create in a beautiful space like this with all her great goodies to create with. I've never created with glitter, but I think I could get the hang of it at this table.

The Victorian Parlor said...

Wow! Now that's a studio! What an amazing place to create. Of course, the detail pictures look like art with your photography:). I can't wait to see more!

BTW, could I get some more popcorn? Kramer took mine:).

trash talk said...

Oh mylanta...I saw glitter. How'd you get close enough to take the photo?
It all looks wonderful. I wouldn't have been able to do anything except walk around touching everything. Talk about sensory overload!
It all makes me wish I was creative just to have a space like that and a reason for all those pretty things...besides being a junk w@%*e!

Hi Jodie,

What a wonderful studio Chantal has!
I just adored marveling at how beautiful everything is.
If I was Chantal, I would be so happy to stay at home all the time.
All the pretty ribbons and treasures everywhere you look.
Thank you Jodie for taking the wonderful photos and for Chantal to so kindly let us take a peep at her fantastic studio.

happy weekend

I am one of the lurkers. :) My cousin started me blogging a short time back and I have no idea what I am doing. I started going from one blog to the next, starting with one she recommended on her blog, and I am just gobsmacked at all the talent out there. So many beautiful blogs, so much inspiration and so little time! I will be back to visit but just wanted to tell you how fantastic this is.

DeeDee said...

Thanks for sharing girls, there's alot of great storage ideas.
