You can find all the pictures from my rooftop studio used in the article on pages 34, 35, 36 and 37 in my following blog post along with many more pictures that are not in the article:
http://carolsgarden.blogspot.de/2013/07/5th-annual-where-bloggers-create-party.html

If you don't like to click the link, here are some of the pictures from the above post for the 5th annual "Where bloggers create" blog party 2013 (and yes I'm planning on participating again next month for the 6th time in a row) and some of these photos also got published now in Creative Spaces Volume 3:




About the picture above I must point out that I haven't collaged the inside lid of the suitcase myself as Jennifer has stated in the article. Jennifer couldn't know that this old suitcase was a gift from a dear blogging friend Ann Perry of The Tin Rabbit. Sweet and talented Ann (who owns a wonderful creative space herself btw) sent me this old suitcase, filled with vintage gifts (they are not in it anymore), for a friendship swap we did a couple of years ago and I treasure it ever since!




If you want to see more pictures of my creative space and the descriptions please click here the link from my Where bloggers create post 2013 contains about 30 photos and many detailed shots.

I'd like to thank Jennifer the Editor of Creative Spaces for asking me if I wanted to be published and for this great oppurtunity to share my studio and blog with an even wider US audience and of course for the beautiful article she created from the photos I sent to her and also for making this a very pleasant experience for me :)

Jennifer has sent me two magazines of which I gladly share one with one of my lucky readers. To win it just leave me a comment and a way to reach you and tell me what you like or don't like about my roof top space and I'll use the random number generator to find the winner. Good luck!

And now I wish you all a very pleasant blog hopping! http://www.papercraftsconnection.com/?p=24021

See you again soon with another magazine article reveal (yes how lucky am I to get published in two different beautiful US magazines in the same month) this time it's all about my garden and I'm also going to share a bunch of new Summer garden photos with you :)

xoxo~ Carola
