Some This and Some That

First, I just want to say how ver klempt I am over all the great comments I received here and over at 12 X 12 about my chair piece. It was a piece waiting to be made since I took the photos. I have selected the next theme and it is window. You can read about it at 12 X 12.

I have spent all of today working on SDA conference stuff. I am caught up for the time being. Tomorrow, I will be back in the studio — cleaning up my mess.

Mr C painted my old bookshelves to match the other woodwork in the office. They look so great.


What is that on the shelf? It is a nice little gifty from Deborah — a been thinking about you gift with a lovely note. I love snail mail. Thanks, Deborah!


We found these really cool shelf brackets at IKEA. Mr C is making shelves. I think they have the first coat of paint. At least, I have the makings for getting organized.

Last, but not least. I love my new grocery shopping bags that I found at IKEA. Brightens up an otherwise tedious task.

    Wow……..your studio is going to be a stunner!
    I think Deborah’s ‘thinking of you’ couldn’t have arrived at a better time. What a splendid surprise!

    Gerrie, I loved your chair piece. It made me wish I could have explored the shop that was the inspiration. All the 12×12 pieces have been great. Windows is perfect for a theme, you can interpret it on so many levels. Jen

    Hi Dear, I didn’t get a chance to see the chair piece yesterday. It’s wonderful and I especially like the blue. So vibrant. Great composition. That photograph just called out to be translated into artwork.

    Boy, do I wish we had an Ikea anywhere near Eureka! The closest is in the Bay Area and I NEVER go there anymore, too far to bring back big stuff anyway. Love your finds there!

    You are most welcome, my friend.

  7. I’ll be watching to see what you do with ‘windows’. I’ve been exploring that theme off and on for a while now and it will be fun to see how similarly or differently we interpret it.

    Hi Gerrie,

    Loved to read about your IKEA buys. I was in IKEA when visiting the Netherlands some weeks ago and today I happen to make some bags from their splendid fabrics.
    Have a beautiful day,
