March 27, 2012


Lol, the pictures I've been sharing lately are not the prettiest but they really are what I'm in the midst of. On the podcast this week I share how making the shifts in the basement is having a ripple effect throughout the house and that includes in the studio! Sometimes a shake up is precisely what's needed. At least that's what Tigger tells me!



Recently shifted spaces at the day job and in such I when out to get some personal touches to make the space decidedly Shannon, and each of these three things does that. Before the end of the day The Frog was a big hit, and many people agreed with me that it's a fun place to have your clips be they paper, foldback or otherwise. It will be a few days before I find out if it's practical, but so far I'm just loving the frog in all it's froggyness.



When Dad and Julie visited in the fall they brought some artwork that used to be in our house. Reg's Mom gave me this easel of Reg's grandmother's who used it to display art so I put the watercolour painting of the Chateau Frontenac on it. It brightens up my crafts room and is an invitation for me to come inside and be creative.

Also, I talked to Mom and found out some fascinated things I didn't know about. Did you know Mom went to college in Arizona? For criminology? But it was such a basketweaving course she came back to Canada and finished her degree at UofT. I had no idea! I feel like there is so much I don't know. I can't wait to visit and find out more.

Jamie, nothing like a little chaos to turn life upside down but I agree with Tigger, you're doing amazing and are on the right path.

Shannon, those three items say "you!" all over! I love it. Where did you get that Spock glass? I am so envious!

Jamie Ridler Studios said...

Whoa, seriously! I never heard that from Mom. Wow, that is truly amazing. I'm trying to imagine Mom as a criminologist!

Suzie, I love how that picture is such an invitation. Absolutely beautiful.

Shannon, omg, those things are so YOU! That frog is absolutely killing me!

Kind of a fascinating theme showing up here about us, our spaces and how we express ourselves within them. Interesting too because I'm working on a little something-something about that behind the scenes too!

You guys are inspiring me!

Shannon the Movie Moxie said...

Wow, we really are all making shifts and changes! I'm totally fascinated at the aligment of our actions and houses! Well, apartment for me :)

I thought it wasn't just me that might not know that story! I shared another part of it in today's post too. I know, criminology, that totally blew my mind.

Yes, our space and creative expression is definitely appearing in our posts, isn't it? I've been thinking of making a cupcake clock because I saw one I liked but Reg doesn't want me to copy other people's ideas. Like I could! I know mine would look totally different so I've been working through how I feel about that.
