Creative Women

I remember asking my husband for this book for Christmas……not this past Christmas, but the one before.  I have picked this book up and thumbed through it so many times……….I wouldn’t be surprise to have drool stains on the pages.  It’s one of those books that you find something to surprise you every time you read it.  No matter how many times.imageWell guess what?  She has a blog!   image Jo Packham the brain child behind that beautiful book and all the magazines has a blog!!!!  Squeal!  I saw her on twitter and didn’t think it was actually THE person behind Where Women Create….but it was.  That was a good twitter day!  Then I visited her blog and you’ll notice she has my “I love Today’s Creative Blog” button.  She likes me.image

Where Women Create

Jo is the go to gal to find all these amazing creative spaces……as well as learning the personality that creates in that space.   She brings you some amazing artists.  I LOVE seeing where they work.  How it’s set up……….how they organize………Sigh..imageAll the artists seem so unique in their talents. Her intimate descriptions of each artists makes you think you could be friends with each and every one.imageI love little drawers……….image

I really do believe old jars were really meant to hold buttons and small embellishments….. image

  Oh the fun we could have in this studio below…….image

She has a lot of giveaways too.  I love that bracelet.  I really should have won that.  image

Stop by and get inspired.  And you better leave her a comment!!!  Or I’ll go on strike! 

Come back tomorrow for Fabulous Friday Giveaway………I wonder if I could talk Jo into giving away a book sometime?  hint hint.  (I have no shame……but you already knew that)

Edited to add: They are giving away another bracelet in honor of being featured!!!  You really have to go visit now.

Kim:
You are very very sweet - as are all of you that have posted such nice comments about WHERE WOMEN CREATE! All of the women associated with WWC very much appreciate your support.

And Kim, all you need do is ask - I would be happy to give away a couple of books. We have a new one: WHERE WOMEN CREATE - BOOK OF INSPIRATION that will be available April 1 - you will love this one too!

I wish I could take credit for how wonderful the books and magazines are but it is due to the inspiring women that fill our pages. I love their studios but I love the stories of their journeys even more.

Thank you again. You are the best!!!
Much love
Jo

I have this book & every magazine that has been published so far. I read them over & over! I met Jo at Silver Bella & she is the most sincere & wonderful lady I have ever met. She is going to be the speaker at Jennifer Hayslip's (sweet eye candy) art event "Petticoats & Parasols" event in April in historical Savannah. I can't wait!! Check out her blog...you might want to sign up.
