Where Bloggers Create II



I can’t believe I’m actually posting photos of my craft room. I mean, I only signed up for this gig a week ago ~ I must have been crazy because: 1) that’s not a lot of time to get the room (picture) ready and 2) this event places me in some pretty formidable crafting company! Of course, I’m so excited to see all my crafty friends’ spaces, but I digress. Without further ado, welcome to my little slice of crafting heaven ~~

So this is it!


The petite shabby chic jewelry armoire was made especially for me by my oldest chickcadee ~ you go (crafty) girl (and mod podge)!


See all those scrapbook albums?  I've been scrapbooking since 2000.
 

Gotta love this storage system from my loving husband.  He gave up the Man Cave but inherited a very happy wife!


Gotta have an inspirational spot to blog.........


How girly-girl is this!


Snagged this at a local flea market ~ love it to pieces as the ultimate in jewelry display (and it's nice just to have around, too!)

GOTTA HAVES

Chickadees'  Art





Tunes!


“So, what exactly do you create here?", you might ask. Just a peek.

Scrapbooking


Jewelry Making





Well, I hope you enjoyed the tour! I know it sounds sappy but I’m really grateful to have found such an accepting blogging community. Next to jewelry-making and scrapbooking it’s become another one of my passions.

Who knows what’s next? Until next year,

You are really blessed to have a wonderful and very large space to make your scrapbooks and jewelry. Your husband was great to give up the space. You have a very colorful studio. Thanks for sharing it with us. And, no! It isn't sappy because blogland is such a great place these days.

Kathy B. said...

What a joy to virtually visit your space (and see the chickadees)! I love the way your craft room looks so simple and welcoming at first glance, then reveals so many layers as you take the tour. Right now I can only dream of having a room like that, let alone having time to create in one. Have a cup of tea there for me - miss you, girl!

Terri said...

Hay Kathleen, I see your not only in the WBC group but your a Bloggertte!!! So I get to see your space and I saw your Rush creation (which I adore). Love your space, that rug is way cool, and I love your jewelry display/holder. I scrapbook also, I started back in 98 I think. Thank you for sharing your wonderful space and showing the jewelry, I DO like the braclet with all the blue bling and the broach, and that is quite a haul you made at the church function, very cool and I can imagine your excitement. Ya, I have been looking around, grin.
Do come by Big Horn Mountain Creations for a visit.
Sister hugs
Gail
