Welcome to In The Studio, a place to show off your studio and meet some great artists! You guys, I have to totally apologize to those of you who came to this space last week only to discover there was no link-up to be found. Truth be told, I flat out forgot. We landed back in S. Africa last Wednesday, and even though I didn’t return to work mode until this week, my brain was in a fog and not working properly. Part way into Friday, I realized I had no In The Studio post. Ugh! Terrible! I hope you’ll forgive me.

Just finished our 3rd walk today in the brisk England air.

My studio has been rather dry this week if you think of it in the traditional creative sense. Don’t get me wrong. I’m itching to get my hands on starting to sew my very first quilt, finishing up those final touches in my scullery and kitchen, re-doing my daughter’s room, and putting artwork on those living room walls that I finished painting just before we left. However, after 2+ months of travel, all I’ve wanted to do is nest and catch up with friends I haven’t seen.

{Nest} Besides unpacking the eight bags we hauled back, I’ve loved being back in the kitchen again. I haven’t always been able to say that, but long periods of travel and lots of catching up over restaurant dinners will do that to you. I’ve gotten all crazy with sweet potato, lentil, quinoa burgers and Thai green curries. It’s fabulous, and I’m loving it.

So that’s been my studio…my fridge, my stove. My family thought I went bonkers last weekend. By the time they woke up, I had juiced a jug of orange juice and cooked and canned applesauce. It just feels so good to be home.

I’m super excited to see what you guys have been up to this week!

Now it’s your turn! Remember your “studio” can be anywhere. Let’s celebrate each other’s creativity by linking up and visiting as many as the other studios as you can. Check out the about post for more info and don’t forget to grab the In The Studio button!

    I truly appreciate your transparency. Last week was a little slow moving for me. This week was my fog week. Sometimes, we just have to let our bodies slow and give our minds time to refresh. Your words today make my shoulders relax in comfort knowing I am not alone. xo
