Where bloggers create, 2012


Who am I?
I am an artist. I am an instructor. I am a photographer. I am a traveler. I am a brave girl. I am a friend. I am a bird nerd. I like to paint. I like to sew. I like to make jewelry. I like to do art. But most of all, I like to be me.




Welcome to Lemoncholy's Studio! I have been making art in some form or another for a long time. I got into the mixed media field about 8 years ago and then began teaching about 5 years ago. I am mostly known for my jewelry, but I also do a lot of sewing and painting. When I tire of doing one thing, I simply begin projects in another area to keep me fresh and motivated.
 Last year I moved my studio from my bedroom, where I use to make jewelry in this tiny little alcove, into a room downstairs. It was a beautiful, yet barely used room, so I made it my own. Now I have plenty of space to work, can find (almost) everything, hosts workshops and I even have a fireplace! Life is good. I hope you enjoy a glimpse into my studio and my home, which is just an extension of my studio and creative life. 
































 and lastly, I like to introduce you to my studio mascot (everybody needs one!). This is kashie. He's a little bit country and a little bit rocknroll (okay, maybe a mix of naughty and nice!) in a few weeks, he gets his first big boy haircut. check back to see how it turns out!


I want to thank you for stopping by. You can also see my studio tour on Pinterest (where you can read lots of descriptions about the vignettes and so forth) Enjoy the rest of the hop!

xoxo,

kecia

and last but not least! I've decided to giveaway one of my "flower girl" pendants. Just leave me a comment related to my studio and you will be entered!

  1. Having visited in person Kecia's amazing home... Let me tell you every inch is a snap of inspiration! When I first walked in I asked "what are your hours and are you open on Sundays?"! I kid you not it is amazing.... Oh and then you go in the back yard... An entire outdoor creative space! The magazine could devote an entire issue to this gem of a place!

    Thanks for the sweet walk down memory lane!

Loved seeing your studio and all its many layers. If you visit my blog... which I would love to have you do when you get a chance.... you can see that layers are missing from mine. Well, there are some but in such an organized way! I just can't help myself!! LOL Chat with you soon!!

  51. Your studio is a total treasure trove of goodies, how do you get anything made - when you can sit and play with all those wonderful goodies? This really reflects 'you' in there, it's amazing to look through the photos, a little vintage, a little sparkle, a little steampunk and then splashes of colour - it's wonderful!
