There is a Season , turn, turn, turn ......

What can I say ??? Time slips away, things gets busy .. And Seasons change....
I know it is Summer and will be for awhile, but this is the start of a new season for me , at least...
We had a wedding, a new Grandchild , lots of outside and inside work things have settled for a time at least.
I had set up my craft area/ studio in a cute area when we first moved in this house last year..but it was also a high traffic area...too many entrances lead right into and through my supposed ' creative space"....
When my youngest daughter moved out a few months ago, I knew it was time I had my own space, not in an entry and exit way .....
I spent a lot of time, painting some furniture pieces that were given to me and a nice little cubby thingy I got out of the trash during Spring clean love other folk's trash, eh ??
Before I post all the pics, I describe some things..
The black on top of the walls was painted by my daughter when we moved is all chalk board paint. She had all of her friends write little messages when they would come over...I wanted it to stay, hoping I could climb my chubby butt up on the ladder and draw and write some cute "artsy stuff " ...I tried...I can only get on the first step of the ladder, unless I have something else taller and sturdier to grab on to....So hubby is going to bring in a large 1 1/2 tall foot wooden platform for me to put the ladder on and move and drag around the room, to finish my project.
The curtains are not my cup o' tea, necessarily, but for now, they at least go with the colors...I hate big huge picture windows.....I really want to put in smaller ones side by side, but cant afford it right now....The front window is larger than the side one and it is HUGE !! I would pay an arm and a leg for shades....I have a smaller curtain just in the middle right now, so that I don't get  creeped out at night when I'm up all alone and don't feel like someone is watching side window is a bit smaller, so the curtains pull all the way across.
So...anyways...Here are the pictures. I really hope to calm my mind and Spirit , and get creative once again, now that I am in this room, with much more privacy.
By the way..Tomorrow is my Birthday !! I am 55 !! I can now go live in a Senior Citizen Community if I want to !! Yay !! lol

Have a great evening everyone !!
