Early this summer we finally got around to updating our home office/studio by adding some shelving and storage for all my art supplies. Since then, we've rearranged things a little by switching out my drafting table for our old dining room table from IKEA. My mother-in-law gave us her round glass dining room table from CB2 when she moved because it didn't work with the new space. We've been loving it in our breakfast nook and I quite like the way everything fits together after rearranging our living areas.  It's a bit of a mess right now because we need to do some organizing and clearing out but overall it's much more friendly and inviting space to spend time with the cats in the evening.

To be honest, it's been a looong time since I've painted. It makes me a little bit sad that I don't regularly make time to bust out my watercolors and paint, but I have a lot of other creative outlets to keep me busy. My sister wants a couple of abstract paintings to hang in her room since she's redoing her space to make it feel a bit more adult. I decided that I'd paint them as part of her Christmas gifts. Here's a look at the first one. I'll probably keep the second more of a surprise for her. I can't wait to see them hung in her space!
