Art and Love from Me to You

A Studio Tour

welcome to my creative space

I am writing to you today from my beautiful new studio!   Just writing that sentence makes me want to pause and breathe it in.  I feel expanded, open, grateful.

I moved my studio from a crammed upstairs bedroom (that also served as my dressing room) to a bright and sunny room on the first floor of my home.  It seemed that I could never get a grip on my studio with all of the other pieces of my life (clothes, beauty products, jewelry, personal filing cabinets, computers, etc) all sharing the room with creating art + printing + packaging orders.  This was a really good move for me.

This space contains only what I need to do my work.  Only what I love and cherish.  Only what inspires me.  It is clean and sparkly.

And, best of all, it has been blessed.

Yesterday was a magical day.  (Interestingly, MAGIC is my word for the year, but that is another post.)

My two sweet, soul-sister friends, Lisa and Melanie, came over to do a new studio clearing and blessing.  They brought me the most gorgeous flowers.  Lisa created a ritual that was an open-my-heart-beautiful experience.  We cleared out any old energy to make space for what I want to happen in this studio.  I declared my wishes- we used essential oils and sounds and ceremony.  But best of all, Lisa wrote a Blessing for Lori’s Space- here is the first sentence:

Sweet Divine Spirit,

So filled with Creativity and Love,

Bless this space with Your Magic.

I would share the rest of this blessing with you, but we decided it was a magical gift for the world.  The studio space blessing and clearing is on it’s way to being an inspired Creative Space Blessing book or kit of some sort.  Lisa is working on that and I will let you know when it is finished.  If you do any kind of creating, you will love this with all your heart.  It needs to be out in the world.

My art space feels different..more inspired, more magical, peaceful, abundant, clear…good things are happening here already.

I can feel it.
