Happy first day of spring! Yay! My absolute favorite time of year! 🌸🌼🌹🌼🌸
(Paper mache eggs I made a few years ago, and some of my favorite milk glass)

Taking a bit of time today to relax and catch up on some reading. Quite the difference in reading materials there, right? Ha. Can't help it, I love pretty magazines, but also love reading crime novels. I've been reading about crime both fictional and not since I was a teenager. In another life, I would have loved to have worked for the FBI! πŸ™ˆ#oddfactsaboutme

So I showed you yesterday how my shelves are looking neater and less cluttered, but here's a peek at the boxes and boxes of stuff I have to go through still. I don't even know what to do with everything I decide not to keep. A lot of it is vintage, things I collected for years, but just don't need anymore. Yard sales are a pain, and you never get what something is worth, of course. I could donate craft supplies to a teen shelter /group home. But what about the rest? Haha. That's part of what makes it hard going through stuff and paring down, is deciding what to do with everything. Sigh. Wish me luck. πŸ’•

Slowly, slowly getting my studio in order. I'm trying so hard to simplify in there, and to get rid of stuff. The clutter of it all once inspired me, now it overwhelms me. So I'm trying to purge, and keep only what I truly love. But I'm so sentimental it makes this process so much harder than it should be. Ha. These shelves probably won't stay just like this, and the top one isn't finished, but it's a start. β™‘

I'm supposed to be cleaning my very messy studio, instead I'm sitting here looking at a tiny fraction of my pretty notoebooks. Can anyone say #stationeryaddict ? Send some motivating vibes, please. πŸ’•

Came across these cards I bought a while back while cleaning up some stuff in the studio. Reminded me of just how much I adore old paper! πŸ’•

A happy new addition to my studio! We found these vintage lockers for a bargain at the Hwy127 sale last year, and my husband cleaned them up and painted them for me. (The doors are a bit more pink than is showing up in this photo) There's a total of 9, and I love them! Please ignore my messy shelves though, everything is about to get rearranged and reorganized.

This is a repost from @itspaperdear, but it's the only crafting I have had time for lately. I keep trying to find ways to incorporate my vintage loving heart into the planner world that my daughter and I spend our days in as we run that busy little shop. So while working with her illustrations, I still had to shabby it up with some vintage lace and trims. Still trying to find that balance between the 2 worlds, but I will. I know it. πŸ’•

Hey! As you probably know, Little Pink Studio took a serious backseat to @itspaperdear (the stationery shop I run with my daughter) over the past year. We never really imagined it would take off like it did, and I have toyed with the idea of downsizing all of my stuff, and just closing LPS permanently. But truth is, I have more than 10 years invested into it, and it's just a part of me. I think I would miss it too much. (And already do!) So, I'm still trying to figure out how to make it all work without cloning myself. In the meantime, I have opened another shop. I know you're probably thinking "what?!", but it's ok, it's just a printable shop. I am in the process of moving all of my printable collage sheets there, as well as ones I have made and never listed! I am even adding vintage images that I have taken from my huge vintage ephemera collection and removed backgrounds or cleaned them up. (I'll be adding more as I can ) I just figured this would help clear out the shop, and make the printables more organized, while I figure out what else to do with LPS. I'm still adding, but would love it if you'd check it out, and if you love vintage printables, maybe bookmark it. πŸ’•πŸ˜™ I'll post a link in profile, but it's PinkStudioPrintables on etsy.
If you're still reading, thanks for sticking with me through this crazy long post! πŸ’• πŸ˜™

I made these little vintage junk journals a while ago, and am hoping (crossing my fingers) to finally have some time to add lots of new stuff to the shop next week!

My sweet girl, always hanging out where I'm at. Right now she's in the studio with me while I cut stickers for @itspaperdear new collections. 😻😽😻

Happy New Year! I'm ready for a new year, and I'm hoping for the best year yet for all of you as well! πŸ’—
