Where Women CREATE III

I wait so patiently all year for this day to come..over on
Not so much to really share my creative space, but to explore everyone elses AWESOME creative spaces, every inch of them. And still when I need some inspiration I go back and drool over them again again. I have finally decided to participate, I don't really have a grand studio, but it is all mine. I call it "Shabby" because it is thrown together with scrap wood.  I didn't get everything finished as I liked, but this will have to do for this year.  So to begin, this is what you will see as you enter in from the door.

 This is behind the door.. A few vintage flower girl dresses, and my rake that I turned into a ribbon rack. At the bottom of the picture, I have one of my vintage pillowcase dress displayed.
 A close up picture of the rake ribbon rack. Love the pink.

 The opposite wall of the door, I have my childhood doll my Grandmother gave me, I have had her since I was 8 years old.
 One of my beautiful sweet hats with some needlepoint of my first daughters birth.
 UGGG!! Now, I didn't get to organizing these shelves. Iwanted to paint the brown one, but didn't get to.. So here is my mess of fabric. The vintage pieces are on the bottom shelves.  The top baskets have ribbon, punches, buttons in jars, etc.
 This is my JUNK wall, something I need to work on, but some of my supplies are kept here.
 All those suitcases are full of dollies, hankies, notecards, etc.  The blue bonnet is my husbands triple great granny.  The Chest has all my gift wrapping supplies in it.
 My newest addition.. I just love it.
 I hung my demo pillowcase dresses in it. Ican't believe I got all 50 dresses stuck in there. More storage underneath them.
 All the dresses are full of ribbon, I did get to go thru them and put all the same colors in bags and in the same drawer.
 My wall on the right side.
 My ironing board table with jars full of treasures underneath.
 And of course my eyelet lace. Yummy!

This is my apron I created out of an vintage pillowcase. I wear it when I'm creating and doing craft shows.
 My little hanging supply of notions.

 Close up m y apron.
 Just some fluff ..
 My sewing area.

 My papercraft area.
 Some of my stamps.

 I love Raggedy Ann and Andy
 The little sitting bench that is at my paper craft table has all these lusious vintage wedding dress pieces and lace.

 A vintage slip I adore.
 I have these old jewerly boxes filled junk jewerly. I want to paint the brown white or  cream. Don't you adore the wicker pocket book..
 I store some samples from my Etsy sop in it.
 Stash of my binding
 I love my stool. It is sooo heavy.

 When I get to come and work/create in my "Shabby Studio" is such a JOY.. I just don't get to do it as much as I would like.
 A vintage change purse to hold some envies..
 The angel is a gift from a friend.

Well, I do hope you enjoyed my little CREATive space. Nothing fancy.. But it is mine.   Now to go and lust after eveyone elses CReative spaces..

Just a Little of This and That

I've been trying to get my little studio ready for the "Where Women Create 2011".  It's just a BIG FAT Mess!!  I did manage to CREATE a new banner and to add it to my little Etsy shop.  I thought it turned out rather dandy..
 I've had this little dress cut out for more than four weeks and I couldn't wait to see how it turned out.  I love the fabric so breezy and cool.  Great for summer weather.
I wanted to CREATE a little more in my little studio and clean but I have to work in my Beauty Salon in a little bit.  But I have my list a going for my creations and things I need to do.  I love list, I didn't realize it until the other day.  When anything would come to my mind that I need to do or want to do. I write it down.  And it easys my mind, so I don't have to think so hard.  Well, I gotta go and work.   Hoping to CREATE something special later, maybe inbetween appointments, maybe.

Before and After $20.00 find

I went to a yard sale Saturday.. And found this for cabient for $20.00.. I could not believe it.. I've been wanting one of these for a while. I had big plans for it. Couldn't wait to get home and get started on it.
 And This is what I came up with.. I couldn't decide If I wanted to put mirrors where the fabric is, or chicken wire.  Then I thought of the fabric.  I used some knobs I had.  I want to get more of the clear ones. I'm wanting to put shelves in the clothes closet area.  But for now this will do.
I am very pleased with how it turned out.. Now to put some of my supplies in it.. So excited.. I just had to share it..
