I had a fun girlfriend filled day yesterday!

I went to my friend Renea's place where she is setting up shop in the cutest little house. Its a cool extra building on her parent's property and she is turning into a fabulous little work space to go play and craft and make art in.

The space still has alot of work to be done, we painted and broke out some old boxes of stuff that's been in storage forever, she said it was like Christmas opening all the boxes of her old stuff! And this is the first time Ive been able to see 'her home style', so I was delighted to see really how much we are alike in that respect!

I am just so excited for her to have her own space, I know that is going to be the key for her creative process and inspiration!!! This is just the beginning!

She is having a great GIVEAWAY over on her blog, it end today, so quick, hurry, go enter!!!

I think her company name is just the bees knees!
Here she is showing off the bag I made her to carry all her crafty stuff in! Her favorite color is orange :)
Just little pretties. Nothing is in its real spot yet, so these are just some close ups!
I adore this teal dresser!
And of course the peacock feather :)
This gorgeous doggy is named Pogo, and he LOVES frisbie! And there is the coolest old barn behind her space and I desperately want to do a photo shoot back there!
More lovelies.
Go check out her blog:

and her etsy shop:

She is a super sweet, and uber talented lady, and I am so happy and honored to have her as a friend.
