Just thought I'd start my new blog with pictures of my craft room. This is the place I long to spend my days, away from the Workaday World we live in.
Picture is kind of dark, but it gets better, lol. As you can see I have the same old rotary mat I used during the crafting craze of the 80's. The table is a barter I made for a quilt when I had my antiques shop.
Love Mary Englebreit. I hope it is okay to show these, oops.
This one I used for Wedding Shower party favors. I made a removable tag with my Xyron that said FAVORS to put over the word "LIVES". Wouldn't want to be so terribly rude.
These are the cubbies my husband built from one of those kits at Lowes. I covered the front of clearance sale Christmas boxes from Longs Drugs with Hydrangea borders I bought from the Dollar Tree. My shabby chic cubbies.
Two little quilts from my quilting days. The one on the right was given to me by a fellow quilter at work, she was an expert. Mine's on the left, I am a novice.
When my dolls get tired, I have old movies going to inspire me. "Here's looking at you, kid." I painted the little girl on the cabinet way back in the 80's. And decoupaged the boxes in the 90's. I am a child of the 50's and 60's, go figure. I lost the 70's: but then who didn't completely skip the disco age, lol.
Oh, before I sign off. What you don't see is the built-in closet my husband put together from California closets at Target. Sliding drawers for all my fabric (almost). Room for my Xyrons and Sizzix machines. A bin for my fiberfill and shelves and shelves of crafting supplies. Because the Crafter with the most wins when she/he dies. I am definitely in the running.
