yes... good things come from small spaces!

What does your creative space look like?  Is it a large studio?  A portion of your dining room table? Or a nook in the corner of a spare room?  We love exploring where all of your creative magic happens... big or small!   

This month gypsy artist Ann Mabee let us take a peek at her creative corner.  We love how the junky feel of her worktable, and frankly are in awe of the awe inspiring projects that come from this mini yet meaningful space!  Want to learn more about Ann?  Then read below...

I am not sure why, but sometimes on the Gypsy Journal, when I scroll down to see more, the writing at the beginning disappers. The first section of the new blog vanishes. It's doing it today, with AM's project.
