Hi friends, welcome to my creative space!
I hope you are enjoying the party, Where Bloggers Create II so far, I know I am! I can't wait to see everybody's creative niche!
I think my room is too small to call a "studio." It doubles as a guest room and sometimes it's just a place where I like to hang out, blog, listen to music, or just relax after a long day. So, if I'm not working on a project and being "crafty" I like to think of my room as my
So, I hope you'll hang out with me for a bit and take a peek into the nooks and crannies of my room where inspiration begins for me.
I love keeping left over fibers on vintage spools.
This library card catalogue style cabinet is where I keep my stamps.
Fabric? Well, I have a "problem" with fabric, you see I just keep accumulating more and more and no where to store! Help!
Oh the quilting bundles and fat quarters make me weak in the knees!
Not much counter space, so most of my projects are small, like fabric collages, mini quilts, pillows, soldering...
More fabric hiding in bins.
I like things out where I can see them and they are readily available, so space is a challenge for me.
I enjoy bringing the outside in so I use terra cotta pots from the garden, for pens, pastels & chalk.
Part of the inspiration, is just being surrounded by my favorite things!
Storing supplies in vintage containers is like eye candy for my creative soul.
I love my comfy chair for reading, and I like to burn candles, and even sometimes patchouli oil.
I know, don't laugh, maybe I was a hippie in another life. :-)
I usually always have music on too, even if it's just the ocean or rain nature sounds.
(If you've listened to the music on my blog, you'll know my style)
I also love to hang a few interesting things from the ceiling.
Cozy surroundings for blogging or taking a nap.
Even though my room leans toward a "coastal" theme, because that's where I hope to live someday, I still use my neon cactus to remind me of the "neon jungle" where I currently live.
I love storing some embellishments in an old printer's tray.
This is Fetzer giving his approval on my polymer clay heart...and
...this is his sister, Shatzie, always wanting to be in the middle of any project.
I keep this soldered charm I made with a photo of my Mother near my sewing machine for inspiration.
(she loved to sew)
Finally, "my chair" with the burlap covered pillow I made.
Well, at least it's my chair when Shatzie isn't using it.
Thank you for visiting and letting me show you my creative space!
Have fun at the party, and I'll be seeing you there!
