Welcome to My Studio and Sewing Room
It feels like home with unexpected friends…
This is my first time attending the “Where Bloggers Create Party” and I have been anticipating this get-together all year and I am especially looking forward to visiting everyone's creative spaces. I feel pretty grateful this year as I have new furniture for my studio office and a brand new separate sewing room. Can you say spoiled? My wonderful husband certainly can? lol! A special thank you goes out to Karen Valentine from over at My Desert Cottage for hosting such an amazing, fun party.
My space is an out-in-the-open airy area in our basement. We carved out an 8’ X 16’corner in our basement just for me to play to my hearts content. I wanted a half wall and full open wall, so as not to feel claustrophobic. Each of my craft spaces are inspired by childhood memories or what I call “Heart Treasures.” Those wonderful memories that stay with us all the way into adulthood. I enjoy being surrounded with the things I love , things that evoke all good memories, which include keepsakes passed down from my mother and grandmothers, to vintage finds, as well as my own childhood toys and trinkets that somehow endured the many years of play by my siblings and myself.
My favourite ivory cabinet holds books and fabric. This was a great find at a discounted warehouse sale. One leg needed repairing, which my hubby did.
I prefer to keep most of my items behind closed doors. I have a large closet type room down the hall where all my stash is. Trust me you’re not missing anything.
It has been a joy to be apart of “Where Bloggers Create” Hosted by Karen Valentine. Be sure to visit Karen’s beautiful blog, My Desert Cottage where the full list of all the party goers in the 4th annual Where Bloggers Create 2012 blog party and enjoy!
