Well, it is finally here! This is my Studio post for the blog party!
My studio, like so many other crafters and artists out there, is most definitely one of my favorite places to be. I adore being at home right here in this little room all my own, with surroundings just for me, which doesn't have to please anyone else. Some people might call it cluttered and busy, but I think it is lovely eye candy everywhere, and that is what makes it so special, and inspirational. I am fortunate to have so many wonderful blog friends who have added to my wonderful little room here. They give me inspiration and such joy! And that is why I love to create here. It started out as the Scrapbook room or my family knew it as the "memory room" but that has all changed, and I simply call it the Craft Studio, because so much more happens here than just scrapbooking and paper crafting.

Vinyl lettering over the only window in the room states one of my favorite quotes. I can sit at my desk and look outside our front yard and see what is going on in our very interesting neighborhood!
A poem that my dear friend wrote for me as a gift about my creative hands is framed here. I am taking a sweeping circle of the room, and going counter clock-wise. So sit tight there are many pictures.
I turned this old sewing cabinet into a display table. I can't have the drawers in because they are not only holding exchanged tags, vintage trims and doilies, antique pins and findings for me to look at, but it is a way for me to have it all at my fingertips. I rather like the look of the skeleton cabinet without the drawers.
The top drawer at the desk. Love those frozen charlotte heads.
Lots of German Scraps to create with!
My Christmas Crafting drawer!

My Imagine * Design * Create Wall
This lovely wedding cake was a swap gift from the extremely talented Jen of jnichelle.blogspot.com I am so very lucky to know her and to have one of her faux cakes with vintage figurine on top. It is something I cherish.
I can take credit for making this, but the idea came from Karla Nathan at Karla's Cottage. She is such a wonderfully talented lady.
I have always thought it fun to mix up the nic nacs in with the supplies, to make it more interesting!
I don't know how this picture got deleted ,but I added it in, because I wanted to show you what I did with my antique measuring tape. It now displays some of my favorite tags which I either made or blogging friends made.
A pretty wall pocket with some of my favorite photos of grandchildren.
a tiny catch-all right by where I work. I just like to look at the leftovers etc.
Glass glitter, microbeads and mica flakes in pretty packaging makes for more inspiration and eye candy! YUM! Thanks again Jen! jnichelle.blogspot.com (she sent me these lovely bottles and a jar full of mica flakes)
And there you have it, I can't show you every little detail or you would be here for hours. I love my Craft Studi0!!!!!! Thanks for visiting and come back again soon!
