come along and meet...

my new blog friend Karin Grow.
I recently happily discovered the artist and blogger Karin Grow after she sent some pictures to me of a party she threw where she used my Happy Birthday Banner in Circus & the Amelie Eiffel Tower. I always love it when customers send me pics of how they have used their banners and other Storia HOME goodies. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
This party was thrown in Karin's art studio out behind her house. Don't you just love the space?
Look what it is! An old detached garage space. The half doors w/the chalkboards are pure generous. Sweet Man and I will be borrowing this idea for our shed/garage remodel someday. Perhaps when the kids go to college maybe?

Karin is a big fan of color and you can see it in her house. Most people who read my blog know that I am not a huge orange fan, but even I love this dreamy sherbety color. Especially when mixed with the white and green furniture and pink Easter decorations. So cheery!

Karin is an art teacher as well and I love seeing the projects she comes up with for her students and workshops. This little flock of felted birds is just too cute! I adore that they are all wearing hats, they all look ready to party down.


This piece is from a collage class she did and I love it. I wish she lived here so I could take one of her classes!


Karin also has an Etsy shop where she sells original paintings, prints and other colorful creations.
Karin is a relatively new blogger so if you get the chance pop over and tell her hello - I think you will enjoy your glimpse into her creative world!

  5. Karin sounds like a kindred spirit. I'm off to visit her website.

    I have never liked orange either, but I am finding myself falling in love with it. Probably because of create wonders like Karin.
