Hello everyone and welcome to this years Where Bloggers Create party!!! You guys never disappoint. I am always inspired by your creativity and ingenuity!!
I can't wait wait to begin visiting all the wonderful studio spaces, but first a little peak at mine.
It really hasn't changed much since last year, but there are a few changes.
That bookcase is new. I'll show you a little more of it later.
Part of the view I have while sitting at my table. All my most used tools and supplies are right there at my fingertips.
My encaustic was bottle collection.
I love this little cubby. It holds some of my favorite vintage lace pieces.
The newer lace bits that are too short to hang on the wall go in these apothecary jars.
This bookcase is new to the studio. I had a much smaller one there before and it just wasn't big enough to hold all my fabric. I found this one at Goodwill. It started out at $79.00 but while I was there looking at it, one of the employees came over and changed the price to $30.00! With my 20% coupon it came to only $24.00 and it's real wood! I added the scrolly wood bits and painted it with ASCP. (Truly my most favorite paint now!)
I have a fabric fetish. It's hard to control myself buying it but I have to. There just isn't enough room for any more.
This is where I keep all my jewelry making supplies. The cabinet on the bottom was a garage sale find and wood box on top is a new addition to the studio.
I move all my bling and doodads from plastic storage boxes into these drawers. The drawers are easily removed so I'm very happy with the change.
The cabinet on the wall came from Ikea a few years ago. It holds spay inks and stains and scapbook type bits and baubles. I drilled holes in the bottom shelf and added a dowel. It keeps my rayon seam binding neat and easy to access without it getting tangled.
The pink side table is also a new addition. I'll show you the before and afters in a later post. It was also painted with ASCP. (Antoinette)
Above that Ikea cabinet sits all my jars of buttons.
This cute little piece is also new. It holds all my glitter including Stickles, German glass glitter and my favorite... Martha Stewart glitters because they are so fine and lovely.
Some of the glitter sits on top in pretty salt and pepper shakers.
This cubby is new this year too. I found it at a garage sale for $5.00. I'm sure it was a shoe organizer. It's not perfect, but it will do for now.
It functions beautifully and keeps laces and trims in view for easy access. Plus they are pretty to look at!!
I meant to get this lamp painted before. Another case of two many projects... too little time!!
Above the cubby I have some of my favorite cabinet cards from my "adopted" ancestors and the train case I recently re did.
Laces hang on the wall so it's easy for me to see what I have and be able to look through them quickly, (again) I think they're really pretty!!! The door pocket organizer holds all kinds of things from paper ephemera to vintage ladies gloves.
Well, that's my studio!! Hopefully next year I will be showing you a whole new space!
