Happy New Year and my micro studio!

Steve and I would like to wish you the Happiest of New Years!  We're starting our new year in our new home in New York.  Lots of 'new' for us. We're in the process of remodeling, taking care of my Father In Law, starting a new job and starting Maxam Made Studio back up.  Exciting times for us.
In the midst of all this change, there has been a heartbeat of peace that has pumped the presence and purpose of God in our lives.  We are exhausted, but we have Joy. That joy has given us a great deal of strength, emotional and physically.
This is my view from "my room"
I love the country, wide open spaces.  Deer come here all the time, it is so peaceful!

I thought it would be fun as my first post of the year to share my new little craft room!
It isn't done, I need to paint the doors and get molding up. I have to say I am very happy with this little 8.5 x11.5 space.  Eventually, we will add on and I will have a space to accommodate classes and my studio work, but for now I have this cozy work room.

It all boils down for me to one thing - what comes out of this room, and not what it is in it.   The big studio will happen some day, but every day I feel very blessed.

walking in:








This room my was my Husbands old bedroom growing up, and then his mothers "morning coffee room"  This picture hung on the wall for decades and I think it was just waiting for me!

I made this in Texas as a color prompt for this room and a word for this new chapter of our lives.

New display boards for cards and ATC's

Steve thought of this idea!! Lots of easy to reach power!

and that is it: my art world of 98 square feet!

More than ever before I want to express myself to the Glory of God and reach out with the Marvelous Light of the Gospel!
This little card I made earlier in the month is my standard for the new year





Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!
