Where Bloggers Create: My Space
Where Bloggers Create today!
I'm happy to show you my craft room, which is located above the garage, with a lovely view out the window of Pikes Peak.
I've always wanted to have a dedicated room for my art, and, even though it's not as fancy as many of the rooms I've seen online, it's mine and I love it! I painted a fancy block design on one accent wall, and decorated with pinks accented with brown.
Here's where I sit and do paper crafts; right now, the table is covered with stuff for the Birdsong Tag Swap I was working on!
Across from the desk is another small desk that I use for sewing. I have a simple Brother sewing machine that I enjoy using for the pillows I sell in my handmade shop.
I really love this desk because it has the cute little shelves on the side that I can use to display little trinkets.
Below it, I have a box from my hometown of San Francisco filled with favorite linens to rifle through!
Above the desk are shelves filled with material and linens for future projects.
To the left of the desk are bins that I have organized and FILLED with paper ephemera and other elements for my paper art.
This system really works for me.
A girl can never have enough bling!
I love using vintage images and lace in my art.
Did you notice Will over there in the corner? He's a piece of salvaged architecture I bought at an estate sale. Since my first love is writing, I consider him a muse!
In this corner I've set up a little photography station to prepare listings for my vintage shop; the drawers hold backdrops, notebook, scale, measuring tape, etc.
A little holder for rolls of vintage wallpaper, and, to the right, a display of fun stuff.
The shelving and drawers on the long wall came from The Container Store. On the shelves up top -- lots of buttons in jars!
If you peek inside, you can really see my passion for vintage ribbon, trim...
In the corner, more storage bins and, hung on the wall, an inspiration board!
Here's a closer look at some of my button-sorting tactics...I love old divided dishes!
Here is a pile of trims that still need to be gone through and distributed into storage.
Then, there's the closet. More storage, this time for vintage items listed in Indulge Your Shelf!
I just have to show you my little wall of fame, ha ha. It's "winner" certificates from novels I wrote three different Novembers during National Novel Writing Month -- all unpublished. I've had magazine articles published, and write about Antique and Thrift Shopping for examiner.com, but no published novels. Yet.
Last but not least, I had to show you my dress form.
She's as yet unnamed, so if you are inspired with one, be sure to let me know!
There you have it! Thank you so much for visiting.
And here's an open invitation to you to come by and craft with me -- anytime!
