Welcome To My Workspace


Welcome to each and everyone.
  I am new to blogging, but not to creating.  I was raised with a Mother and both Grandmothers who sewed, painted, gardened, knitted, crocheted, embroidered....the list is long and varied.  So, I guess creating is in my blood.

I have a favorite quote:
"When I am no longer able to create something, I'll be done for."

Co Co Chanel
I have a 95 year old Grandmother (today is her birthday) and she is still creating. So, maybe this quote applies to her as well.
================
As I have said in previous posts, I create all over the house.  So, you will see a few different rooms on this tour.
First, is where I write my blog and do needlework such as knitting or embellishing crazy quilts.  Located in my sun room just off the kitchen, I can see most of what's happening throughout the house.
================
Now for my sewing room.
  My daughter recently graduated college and has moved to an apartment, so I took over her old room.  Previously, my sewing and other crafting was done in the basement.  I always felt out of the loop down there, so I am glad to be upstairs.    This is a small bedroom and I have lots in it.  There is still a twin bed in here, as no one should lose their room at home.
I have corner chair for my younger daughter to come and keep me updated on her day, or for a small repair that requires hand sewing.
My inspiration board with notes and ideas for future projects.
This is the closet where I keep yarn, fabric, doll clothes to be altered, lace,  ribbons
 and all sorts of fun things.
My recent yard sale find, a thimble holder, I painted and decorated.  My daughter's old printer tray that  no longer fits her decor, now is used for stamps, doll parts and thread.

====================
Now for the room that is not as neat as it should be, but a lot of messy work goes on here.
  My laundry/ stained glass, painting, hot gluing, wire working, encaustic wax, china breaking room.  If it's messy I try to do it in this room.  On the other side of this room is my washer/dryer and a laundry sink.
Lots of stuff and I try to be semi-organized with it all.  There is some method to my madness.
====================
Out of the chaos and into the light, this is in my kitchen.
  I do my paperwork, stamping and journal making here.  This is where I price and wrap things that are going out to new homes.
That's about it, not a fancy workroom where everything matches, but all functional spaces.
 A space where I can let my mind wander and create to my heart's content.  I hope you will leave a comment, so I'll know you have visited. 
Come back soon.
Thank you Karen for hosting this fun event!
