Thank you for visiting Memory Box Creations where I love to share bits of my heart and life, and some of my other delights like my love of writing poetry, photography, decorating, recipes, 
and where I sometimes fashion lovely creations and share all things beautiful.

Always remember a ƑƦƖЄƝƊ may be waiting behind a strangers face.
Wow! Time certainly does fly.  Has it really been a year already?  I have been looking forward to the
  Where Bloggers Create Party get-together and I  am especially looking forward to visiting everyone's creative spaces.  I have been busy training a new Sheltie pup and I also hurt my back (nothing serious) so I have not been creating much of anything lately, but I look forward to getting inspired by all the wonderful creative ladies.  A big Thank you to Karen Valentine from over at My Desert Cottage  for hosting yet another awesome, fun party.
  I have to share our new little fur baby's picture.
On Valentines Day we adopted a new addition to our family
Say Hello to Lacy our little Shetland Sheepdog, LACY
My Sewing and Craft  Room

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.
Pictured here is my childhood vintage iron,
 a sock darner, and my vintage doll ,
 a gift brought back from Hawaii by my uncle.
A Dresser makes for great storage, housing patterns, scrapbook papers, photos, fabric, lace…
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.
  Gotta Love Crystal!  The perfume bottle center stage 
was my paternal Grandmothers.
Two of my cute fully jointed lovingly handmade 
Teddy Bear creations.This very special bear with the red hat is one of a set of twins that I made for a bereaved parent, using a piece of clothing of their loved one to 
create a one of a kind keepsake.
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. 

Bookcase to hold fabric and glass jars filled with buttons, 
lace, stamps and ribbons.
Ribbons and lace and buttons oh my!
 My Sewing Machine…Okay, I don’t really sew on a lace covered table, but it looks so pretty doesn’t it? lol!
My childhood doll. 
A gift from my Uncle while visiting Hawaii  
I found this used farmhouse style kitchen island at another local Shoppe. It is the perfect height for cutting fabric.  Also I re-purposed my kitchen Bar stools, which are perfect for sitting and scrapbooking. It has tons of storage. 
A recipe card holder is going to be re-purposed to hold pictures of my creations. 
 Button, Button, Who’s Got The Button? When I was a little girl, my Mom taught me how to sew on buttons, by having me practice sewing beautiful buttons onto the cardboard that was used to package silk nylons. I loved my button cards!
The ivory lace bear was one of the first bears I made out of my daughters graduation dress to safe guard her memory, which lead me to create other keepsake mementos for other bereaved parents who have lost a child.
One of my many embroidery samplers

My upstairs office studio
A place of my own
 This is my first desk which we had made from a 
Just Pine wood working shoppe
I love my black bookcase. Another great find 
from my favourite local shoppe.
A room of my own where I enjoy my morning tea. 

Well, I hope you enjoyed the tour? I want to thank you all for taking the time to visit and I look forward to mingling with all the quests at the party in hopes of meeting some new friends. Be sure to share a cup of tea or a glass of lemonade with me on the porch before you leave. 
Say Goodnight Lacy
