Studio Corner
Arounna's ArtInspiration board
Screen printingLovebirds at Bookhou
I'm back at my home sweet home after a beautiful time in Canada!
Here are just a few photos I took of Arounna's studio & shop at Bookhou.
Not only is she ridiculously talented and prolific
but she is also very warm, sweet, down to earth and super friendly.
Meeting her, John and their beautiful children was a real delight!
When I grow up I want to be just like Arounna!

Glad you're safely home. It was lovely meeting you on Friday. I hear from Sally that you had a wonderful workshop. I hope you enjoyed the break in the humidity and come back to Canada soon. I'll definitely be at your next workshop!

It looks indeed very inspiring and cosy there - I'm sure you had a great time.

How is it that some peoples craft spaces look like photo shoots and mine looks like a small digger has ploughed through an art shop, dug some foundations, had lunch and then left site unlocked over night where it was trashed by ravers? Jealous. Ditto the 'when I grow up...' comment

I would have a lot of fun in that shop - absolutely love the handmade! The bird in the cactus picture from the exhibit that you made arrived here in WA - I totally loved it! The colors were even richer than I had seen in the photo - its wonderful - thanks!

Her space is very inspiring, even if it isn't my own. :) Yep, I love seeing other people's creative spaces too. I finally got some beautiful shelves from Ikea and have a somewhat organized space. I do think mine looks quite like Leanne said earlier: "looks like a small digger has ploughed through an art shop, dug some foundations, had lunch and then left site unlocked..." :) Thanks for sharing...Angela
