kellyraeroberts The other night I went into his room for what felt like the umpteenth time after we had already said goodnight and lights were out. "Buddy, what iiiiiisssss iiiittt??? Mama is desperately trying to eat dinner." His reply? "Oh sorry, mama. I just wanted to tell you how much I love all the changes and decorations you made to my bedroom and my fort room. Good job!" #mmmhmmm #wellplayed #hehasmewrappedaroundhisfinger #trueelioorlando 2h

kellyraeroberts Here's our kitchen area and table. The hinged doors divider (with a curtain on either side) replace the DIY fail from last week and give us ample storage in that corner. Loving this corner of the new studio! The only other thing to do in this space is hang my art above the chalkboards. #excited #kellyraesstudio 1d

kellyraeroberts Crazy full day. Crazy full week. Physically my body is exhausted from all the schlepping and unpacking and decorating and organizing. Emotionally and spiritually I am beyond excited and energized. I just know in my bones this transition will birth good things. We start work next week fresh and ready to go inside a space I can hardly believe is mine. I am grateful. #dressedupinjoy #thewearyourjoyproject #helloweekend 2d

kellyraeroberts Today I'm working on redeeming the DIY fail from earlier this week. Took the pvc pipe and fabric down. Decided to hinge two old 8' doors together. Gonna add curtains on both sides of the doors and I think this is already looking way better. Will show you progress as we go along. Thanks for all of your suggestions earlier this week about this area! #kellyraesstudio 2d

kellyraeroberts This little guy is feeling a bit better. He had me paint his nails this morning hot pink and blue and then started choreography with his baton. I adore how he is totally unaware of gender "norms" and just rocks his Captain America shirt while dancing with a pink baton. Later, he was listening to ACDC (the song that is in the Cars soundtrack) and skating at the skate park. I want this to last forever.#bewhoyouare #trueelioorlando 3d

kellyraeroberts I apologize for my feed being hijacked by new studio pics! It's all I'm up to this week. Mr. true had a great idea to draw a hopscotch lane down the center of the floors with chalk and that is exactly what we did. #loveit #awesomeidea #thankstrue #kellyraesstudio #comingtogether 3d

kellyraeroberts Dying over how Nichole's space turned out in the new studio. The rug from Target was the finishing touch. #kellyraesstudio 3d

kellyraeroberts Between the flu and then moving the studio, it's been DAYS (weeks?) since I put on makeup and wore an actual outfit. Feels really good to get #dressedupinjoy today. On the list today: some studio organizing (I think I have a plan to replace the DIY fail), send a newsletter, urgent emails, and a trip to the plant store. Also, anyone know where I can get white paper lanterns in PDX? IKEA is sold out. Happy Thursday friends! #thewearyourjoyproject 4d

kellyraeroberts Whew. I am officially unpacked. This is the view from my desk. Nichole's (@freewitchnoguilt) desk is on the left and behind the green couch is my painting area. I still have a little left to do: figure out what to do above chalkboards (considering removable wallpaper), more plants, one more rug, and a new storage solution for my DIY fail earlier today. Otherwise, we are functional. Even got cable today. For those of you asking, there will be small (12 folks max) intimate workshops in this space. Stay tuned! And thanks for following along. I'll keep the photos coming as we settle in. #kellyraesstudio 4d
  •   mrsricefield @kellyraeroberts that's the best news! 3d
  •   twistedsistersdesigns1 Wow! Love!! 3d
  •   shawnrhollis I love your space! When you said removable wallpaper it made me think of starching fabric to the wall. You use liquid starch and it comes off easily when your done. I saw the idea on Miss Mustard Seeds blog awhile back. She did a wall that looked awesome. I could see yours. done with different fabrics collages together. Just thought I'd share the thought. Have a great day;-) 3d
  •   jennalunaleigh I'm in love with it! Can't wait to join one of your workshops and finally meet you! 3d
  •   kikifrag 3d
  •   amyboliba This is so adorable! I don't know how you pull spaces together so quickly! 2d
  •   breannadk I would LOVE to participate in a group/workshop led by you for fellow medical social workers. Just an idea. I know I'd be able to wrangle a crew from Doernbecher. 2d

kellyraeroberts This will go down in history as a DIY fail. It looks like a giant square monster draped in old rags. Cracking up. I'm thinking I will replace this entire area with a very tall teepee that we can use as storage. Does anyone know where I can get a 12' teepee? 4d
  •   kimmieburns Maybe less IS more in this case? I really liked it when you had the one piece drapped over. 4d
  •   giuliamauriillustrator you are right... but it was a cute idea! try and fail but dont fail to try! looking forward to see what you come with next best of luck 4d
  •   hopefull77 How about the white fabric behind and the colorful fabric hung more like drapes, pulled back at the sides to give the illusion it's a window. Or even better a magic portal into the unknown. 3d
  •   apaperaddict I have some plain canvas drapes that i believe are 18feet long. You could paint them and hang them 3d
  •   maryoplinger It could be a "studio" apartment for someone. 3d
  •   erinmaiko Bamboo + hemp or some strong rope + drop cloth = easy peasy teepee. And you can just use fabric glue to secure the drop cloth together at above the opening and paint to make it yours 3d
  •   lisabarton43 Those monster drapes are perfect handmade teepee fodder! Send them over and I'll fix them up ;) 3d

kellyraeroberts Here's where I'm at right now. Hmmmm, jury's out. I'm gonna keep going and see how this turns out. #notquitesold 4d

kellyraeroberts I fashioned a curtain with PVC pipe to hide our little storage area. Now I'm draping extra fabric I had hanging around over the pipe. It's a no sew project as I'm just using pins and clips to fasten the fabric together. By the end it will be a patchwork of fabric scraps that make up the entire large curtain. This was a last minute idea. I'm hoping it works and looks cool. I'll keep you posted! 4d
  •   e5starr @stewartjessicahotmailcom check this really cool curtain out 4d
  •   slowlyunfolding Cool! I bet it will end up looking like a background of one of your paintings. 4d
  •   joanschnig Looks great!!! 4d
  •   fairyarium Some fabric shower curtains could work well also. 4d
  •   pepperpf What about sewing all your favourite material together to create a curtain? 3d
  •   fembeck i love this idea I'm sort of doing the same thing in my basement with white sheets and batiks to cover all the storage shelves and add color to the basement 2d

kellyraeroberts I love my friends. They are my mirrors, my hope, my reminders for why I am here. This sweet text brought me to my knees. To every one of you out there, may you truly know that your voice, life, and story matter. And you are doing a beautiful job here at Earth school. Xxo Let's raise one another up and send some love today. You with me? #sendlove #riseup 5d

Rise Kelly Rae Roberts
kellyraeroberts This area is coming together. This will be my painting table. Lots of rolling carts up against the wall for easy access to materials. Love the little built in drawers and shelving. #progress #gettingthere I likely have one more full day of unpacking and organizing. And then I'm on to more installation type decor for height. #kellyraesstudio 5d

kellyraeroberts Yesterday my mover Sunny took one look at this suitcase and said "you must have been on another planet when you bought this thing." I didn't tell him it was MY artful suitcase, but I chuckled on the inside nonetheless. If I'm on another planet, then I sure do love it here. #kellyraeroberts 5d
  •   jodisjoy ordered the 2015 date book today! Thank you for the link on Twitter! Loving the suitcase! 5d

  •   kellyraeroberts @adudek211 @judecoug Yikes, it was older product from Creative Co-Op. I've been googling it and couldn't find any links, but you might have some luck on ebay, etsy, amazon!   4d
