Creative Space Evolution!

This past week I received this in the mail!
Not only did they feature my space, but they featured my sister-in-law too! (Sara Douglass)

Rather than shooting my office again, they featured the same article they did in the April 2009 Issue of CK. My office has taken 6 years to get where it is now, however it is still changing! It started as this:2005 - Newlywed and totally poor!
Then my temporary space when we moved to Page, AZ
and then moved again to another condo in Page:
After sheer panic when CK told me they wanted to feature my office ... I begged Adam and it evolved to this:We moved ... yet again ... are you counting?? And made this video of my new space:

NOW moving again! Lets hope I don't have to do this again for a while!

I think you should add something fun and girly! Pink or flowery! Your office is gorgeous.

I am definitely the broke college student scrapping in her parents basement. I would love to pour over this book for the future.

Jamie said...

I love your space, especially the furniture. I think it could use a pop of color like pink or peach:)

joel & ginny said...

Love what you have done! I think you need some pops of color, too. Maybe a place to display a favorite finished LO.

Melissa said...

Your office space looks great! The only thing I could think of to add is maybe some color. :)

Laura said...

Mandy! It looks so cute! I think you should add some cute flowers or something!
Question - - where did you get that magnificent linen board? I'm in LOVE!

Jessica said...

More pictures! You have a beautiful family - I would surround myself with those images to inspire me to create!

Kelsey said...

I agree, add in some *girlie* to your room!

You do need some color!! What colors inspier you? My colors change every few years...right now oranges speak to me!! I also love yellow and bright happy colors.

Jamie R. said...

I think you should add some pops of bright green! It would go great against the black! :)
Thanks for showing us your space!

Olivia said...

Love your room, can't think of much else to add, except perhaps a door sign so you can be sure of peace when you're busy.

sarahw said...

Wow, that is a lot of moving! It is neat to see how things have changed as you moved each time. I agree with the other girls, color would be good. :)

Cindy deRosier said...

That's a lot of moves. Will this be the last for awhile? I'm not sure what you should add... maybe a bright green vase?

Kimberly said...

I can't think of anything for you to add, because I would LOVE to have your space! Maybe more pictures. Thanks for the chance to win!

Jennifer said...

I think your space looks great!
Maybe some color...thanks for the chance to win

Sophia said...

Love your space, also think some colour, I can see some duck blue in that range...♥

Debbie said...

I love color as well. I find the best way to do this is to add a nice splash of wall color. Have fun!

Heather said...

I love inspiration boards and pops of color in creative spaces! Can't wait to see the finished office!

Amy C said...

I know you are a mom of boys, I am as well. I think you should make your space more girly! I would love to win a copy of this magazine!

KristynG said...

what about adding another arm to the desk for the boys to have a special place to work along side mama! my little guy sits next to me and colors while i scrap :)

Anonymous said...

Love your space and would love a copy of the magazine. We will be moving and I dream of an organizing new space.

I would add a pop of color - maybe red or yellow.

Jingle said...

I totally understand the moving thing! We have done it many many times, as well! Your space looks great, though!

E F said...

I love your space. I would consider adding a plant or two. Thanks.

Keshet said...

I always love things on the wall!

Karen Foster said...

It all looks great. You have the touch!

Katie said...

A clip it up or some more color. I think it looks really, really great, I want your space.

Shara said...

I love the colors you did in your space. I bet you can't wait to move and get to redo it all over again.

Jill W. said...

Love your space! I like your clip boards and damask on the walls. How about some of those beautiful tissue balls you created in the post way below? Some girliness could be added.

Marci said...

I would add a huge magnet/chalkboard to add inspirational and lots of treasured photos. But, whatever you do, be sure to share it with us!

Jeannie said...

I would add a framed layout of your first scrap page.. a little inspiration of how you started compared to what you scrap today...

LouAnn said...

I think your space is great. You could always add a splash of a bright fun color, something girly.

Barb in CA said...

Love your black furniture! In your new place how about painting the wall behind it a bright color (I'm so into lime green in my craft room) and then adding a few items around the room in the color you selected (like vases, boxes, picture frames).

ShellyJ said...

Wonderful space! you dont need to add a thing :)

cathy said...

think you space looks great - but if you had to - maybe a punch of color - something wild and fun in a very inconspicuous space.

Jessica said...

Your space is amazing! The only thing that I could think might make it a teensy bit better could be a clip-it-up! I am in love with mine:)

Kelly Evanson said...

wow! that's amazing. i never saw that article. awesome!!

K D Douglass said...

Am I the only guy who reads your blog? I think you need some macho stuff. Forget the pink flowers. Medieval maces, broadswords and armor should do the trick.
