Welcome to my creative space,
participating in Where Bloggers Create 2013,
hosted by Karen Valentine over at My Desert Cottage!
Won't you please step inside?
It's pretty crammed but there's room to walk inside.
Just to the left is the closet.
Those are doll boxes stacked up high (dolls inside).
The plastic drawers are filled with fabric and patterns.
The right side of the closet contains more plastic
drawers filled with fabric and notions.
This is my work table. It collapses when not in use (never).
You can see my current project in process.
I found these purple translucent peg board wall panels from Azar Displays.
They've got pink and green, too... (really difficult to decide).
Do you like my popsicle string lights?
Here's what it looks like in the dark.
I love my rainbow tomato pin cushion!
Yeah, I thought these might have caught your eye...
Left over from the holidays.
Crammed in this corner, you'll find LOTS of books
and my sewing machines.
Some fun craft books, topped with beach balls!
These Trader Joe's peach crates make for great storage!
My trustworthy Kenmore sewing machine from 1982.
My dad bought it for me after I began sewing entire pieces of clothing by hand.
It still works GREAT!
I bought this Singer serger in the early 90's.
It really comes in handy for sewing knits and finishing raw edges.
This is the north side of my office and left side of my desk.
I made this color wheel in college for my Color Theory class.
Couldn't just cut out circles, could I?
Previously, this desk was overflowing with dolls.
They're mostly stored in those boxes in the closet.
Here's what I decided to keep on display.
Tonner's Cami Platinum 2011 (I made her coat),
and miscellaneous doll clothes, shoes, handbags, and wigs.
I found these cardboard suitcases at Michael's (40% off).
They're stuffed with more dolls.
Wow, I'm really looking like some crazy doll lady!
(and it's not even a drop in the bucket)
(I'll save that for future posts)
This Cami doll is my very favorite because of her
blue glass inset eyes and real eyelashes.
She's my muse.
This is the east side of my office and right side of my desk.
I use my old tower computer in my office.
It's totally clear with black lights (custom made).
It's pretty old (2005) but still working.
Here's what it looks like at night.
My keyboard is also clear and illuminated.
I like to stick things on my monitor.
I get so inspired by other bloggers out there.
I like to keep and display things I've won.
(like the candied pumpkin apple from Frosted Petunias on the left)
(and an ATC from Artfully Musing on the lower right).
I snagged this Carnivale pendant recently from A Fanciful Twist!
I've had this Wizard Hat Lava Lamp for many years.
It's so relaxing.
I hope you've enjoyed peeking into my creative space.
I would like to do so much more,
like fill the blank wall above my computer monitor.
I only had time to clear the floor, dust, and vacuum (much needed) for this blog hop.
I can't wait to see everyone else's creative spaces.
I find it so inspiring.
Thank you Karen Valentine for hosting this blog hop!
