Bonnie, how did you put up your pictures?
it's interesting to see what your place looks like,
I've a batch at flicker i need to figure out how to add to houzz

I think they need an official Studio/work space section. i like your web site too.
has doing the e article helped bring in traffic to the web site?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A doorway connects the great room to the master bedroom. "I carved out a little sewing corner for myself here," says Forkner, who writes about all things crafty, inspiring, homegrown and organic for her blog, Going Home to Roost.
2. Edit your crafting stash. If you knit, sew or practice any other craft that comes with lots of supplies, it's time to begin sorting and purging that mountainous stash. Fall and winter will beckon with cold afternoons that are perfect for engaging in making something with your own two hands — be ready!
