Finally it's party time!
Karen Valentine over at My Desert Cottage graciously hosts the 'Event of the Year', where to inspire and be inspired by many gorgeous people and workrooms... thank you, dear Karen!!
I'm also linking to Pink Saturday- thank you also to our lovely hostess Beverly for allowing us to post our creative spaces today. I have 46 pictures for you to enjoy!!
... Please do come in. My studio is a small room, but it's my personal "den" where I can ⎨have fun fun fun⎬ work!
During summertime I always have fresh flowers on my desk, and as I have taken these pictures over a month period, you can spot different arrangements.
I made several patchwork bags to house tons of scraps to be recycled (I hate tossing anything), so they are always tidy and don't drive me crazy! ;)
Some of my craft books are stored here, sorted by color and height. I hear you ask- and yes! I always have them this neat, and my desk is always empty and clean before bedtime... so the next morning I can choose freely what to create! I suppose this can sound a wee bit obsessive, but I like to stay organized this way to keep my sanity! :)
Can you spot my sweet furry girl?? That is her favorite place to stay when I'm working- happy Mama here :))
My inspiration board, I've already shown in a previous post, with things that inspire me or have a sentimental value.
I recently changed all the pictures I had in these frames, using a fabric background and black and white photographs only. I think I'm in love!
And TA DAAAA!!! Another antique sewing machine, sooo dear to my heart because it's my Great Grandmother's!! My Mom gave me it the very day I had the other one for free... isn't this abundant??? I love it to pieces!
Thomas and Theodore, my newest well loved bears. I'm sad I can't make more due to the issues with my hands, or at least, I have to waaaaait before making another one!
My favorite linen pillow and one I made with a towel my sister friend gave me. Notice the forget-me-nots.
Another of my torsos, hope I will find some more brooches with pearls or clear rhinestones to add to it!
Behind the door... this ribbon board is everchanging- pictures, sketches, antique dresses, you name it!
My lace curtains, I made with lace for bridal gowns. The shop owner thought I were crazy to make window treatments with it! I have purchased this lace at an incredibly low price to make all my house's curtains, and I am so happy with them! They're very easy to wash, it has been almost 10 year I'm enjoying them, even when we moved to our current home, and they're still perfect!
During summertime, I cannot keep them, they're too bright for me (I am very sensitive to light) so I have a blue-and-white-checked ones matching my studio's fabric scheme. Sorry for the bad photo, I took it years ago with a point and shoot camera. Just to show you.
