Studio Friday: Comfort

Posted by Picasa This week's topic for Friday March 31st suggested by Michelle : COMFORT
"In looking around my newly born studio space, I've realized I have a few little favorite trinkets that have quickly earned a place of honor. They are not necessarily tools or supplies or things I've created. Just my little 'familiars.' The things that provide comfort to my soul and make me smile, sweetly."

In large part, my studio is my comfort. Many of the studio shots that I've posted on this blog are comfort things. Having my cup of steaming hot coffee close at hand is a comfort. Frida gazing at me from behind my favorite word stamps gives me comfort and feelings of familiarity. But when I seek comfort, I find it in my stash of vacation memories, photos of those I love the most, my books, music, my collection of autumn leaves, and bits and pieces of memorabilia. I wrap myself in thoughts and memories of the people, places, and things that touch my soul.
