Dream Studio: A Request.

Dear Universe,

I want a warehouse studio space and it would make me very happy if it looked something like this:

PLEEEEEEEEEEAASE!!! Pretty please, with sugar on top? :)

Once upon a time, I asked the universe for a very specific sort of place to live and every little last detail was fulfilled. Actually, I've been quite blessed in my life because this has happened to me on several occasions. I have never been able to prove whether this is due to magic or persistence, but that's besides the point.

These days I've been doing some serious day dreaming about a real studio space. Right now I paint in my basement and it is, well...less than inspiring. As I ready myself to take some large leaps into the world art making, oooh, I droooooooooool over photographs like this one!

Dearest, most loving Universe, these are my studio requirements:
  • preferably in an old warehouse or a space with warehouse features
  • high ceilings
  • BIG windows
  • a sink
  • s-p-a-c-e
  • curtains and chairs (as shown) are optional, but I do like them very much. :)

I will bring with me:
  • a couch (well, umm....actually, I'm going to need one of these too.)
  • workbench
  • 2 easels
  • paints
  • stretcher bars and canvas
  • my paint brushes
  • 2 dogs
  • photography lights
  • a pretty plant
  • coffee pot
  • small refrigerator (optional)
  • music
  • hammer, nails
  • screws, electric screw gun
  • journal
  • pens and pencils
  • *copious amounts of painterly passion*

What do ya say, Universe? Wanna help me out with this one? *wink, wink* ;)

With great amounts of love and expectation,

this photograph was ripped out of my favorite catalog: Anthropologie...and has now been added to my vision board where I will look at it every day. :)

My friend,
You have taken the big magical step by putting these wishes into the world. You are moving towards your space right this moment. The bigger you dream the larger your expectations will be met!

Lisa-Marie said...

Jessie you're bold, beautiful and an inspiration. Last night I talked with a friend about some things I'm asking the universe for and included was a space filled with light for a photography studio to do amongst other things natural light portraiture. This morning I opened your blog and know it is a message from the universe; ask and it will come. Your studio space will be coming to you. Cannot wait to see your photos of it when it arrives. Thank you so much for helping all of us achieve our dreams as you achieve yours.

What a beautiful photo - a lovely space for creativity to blossom. May the universe be kind to you, very kind.

This is amazing. It makes me realize that I need to visualize what I want more often. I have forgotten to do that lately.

Melba said...

I LOVELOVELOVE your vision of your studio. I know magic will happen again for you.
I want to be living in my dream house.
I have yet to make a list but I will by Monday (more homework!)

Then we can cheer each other on!


Laura B. said...

You'd talked about asking the universe for things, but it was really neat to see you in practice...! I haven't tried it yet and want to.
I hope your request is granted, Jessie :)

Laura B. said...

P.S. What is the book called about this?

Jessie said...

Laura, I think you might be thinking of the book Ask and It Is Given by Abraham-Hicks. This, of course is not a new idea...but reading this book has definitely made my thoughts about being specific in my requests more concrete. Despite the cheesy cover, it is an EXCELLENT book!

And thank you ALL for your wonderful comments. I've smiled big smiles every time I've checked for new comments! :) :) :)

Amber said...

Love it.

I think this weekend Wyatt and I are going to do Please, Universe collages. ;)


Hope you get it!

Annie said...

It is yours Jessie :-). I paint in my kitchen and I too am dreaming of a space much like yours, mine is on the way too :-).

you are going to have to share your studio space. I tore out the exact same picture from anthropology's and pasted in my journal. As I was gluing the picture into place I said a prayer to the world....I want a space with this widow.
I love love love your amazing dog paintings!

Sacred Suzie said...

I can see you manifesting it for sure! Oh that space would be amazing, wouldn't it?

Karen said...

I am asking the universe to send you your studio space, too--I love that picture!

Got lots of catching up to do--love the new look--cheers to Vinnie!

As you wish for yourself, I wish for you also. I see this coming to you soon.

GreenishLady said...

You deserve that space. I'm sure the universe "knows" that. I'll be looking forward to hearing how this manifests in your life!

Loralee Choate said...

I think that it would be such a beautiful thing if you got the perfect space.

Jamie said...

In the spirit of wishcasting - As Jessie wishes for herself, so I wish for her also. My heart's in this one for you, Jessie!!

The Dream said...

I would SO love to have a studio in an old factory building like a REAL artist - feeling free to slop paint around like a wild woman. Till then, I'm going to spend time over the next few months converting a small bedroom into my space. Yeah baby!

madelyn said...

you already have the
passion my bright
girl ~
the rest is on it's way:)


Jenn said...

Love this post! I'm wishing for you, too!

caroline : my pocket said...

Aw, those sheets in the window! The whole photo is delicious, oh I wish it's coming your way! I'm sure it will, for the universe, surely that must be nothing, accomplished before breakfast. x
