My Sanctuary, My studio



I am almost afraid to go in there now and make a mess but, I did. I cleaned it up right away though. grin. I just couldn't leave it a mess. It was fun and I just played a bit. I had to go to bed and crash. Just so tired. Too many late nights and not enough sleep.


When you walk to the door you will see three of my favorite dollies. Kitty by Karmen Troyer of Crows in the Holler. My Miss Sophia dolly by Tonya from Back Porch Pickins and the give away dolly I won by Miss Sylvia Anderson. The Sweet Pea sign is from a local artist.

Not to mention the shelves I need to paint so put my dollies on. smirk*




This little star was a gift from my friend Lex of North Star Primitives. It smells wonderful.


These stacking units came from Michaels and you can use Michaels coupon from online or a Joann's to get them. I got two at a time on sale for about 40 bucks. They are wonderful and plan on getting at least two more.
On top you will see my Ready Teddy and Go piece. cracks me up.A mad carrot and beside it the heart says" Bless your dear Heart" made from a girlfriend. Along with that is cupid's charm From Syliva Anderson.



In this picture you see the old sewing machine and the work table. A gift from my best friends step Mom. That thing has seen some years and damage. LOL The basket is where I keep it all handy. I don't like to move around much if I don't have to. LOL



This is my studio baby. This is Miss Boostie and she is looking at that box, like she just cleaned up the joint and she is bringing in more crap. LOL



T.V., DVD and the box for cable. Work table for cutting fabric and painting. You see my most used paints/glues in a pepsi crate for easy access. I love that. great idea from dear old Mom the queen of being organized.


A free basket to keep floral foam in for things while they dry and the pepsi crate.


Behind my chair is this shelf. I love this piece. Painted by a Local artist. It has my collection of pinkeeps, the painted box from Mindy of Pine Hollow Primitives, my Polka dot Pixie snowman a Christmas gift from a dear friend as well as the pinkeep from The daily Pincushion, and a wee snowman I won from Dawn of the Feathered Nest. There is a picture of my hubby there too which is a rare piece since he hates his photo taken. The triangle in the back ground my late Father made in High school.


My chalk board with uplifting thoughts and bulliton board with the sweetest picture of my folks I have ever seen. I had to put it there. Just felt right. Now I hope to be filling the bulliton board with ideas soon.


The two fabric cabinets, sewing drawers with handy items and in the middle books and stitchery patterns. Storage on top in cheap 1.00 photo boxes.


Happy thoughs sign from a local artist. Thank you Heather.


Last but not least is Mrs. Black, the Old Crow herself. From Pam of Soft in the Head. She is my studio Mascot. She sits high on the sterio dancing to the music and making sure I am doing it right. LOL


So there you have it. Nothing fancy just a bit of fun. Now I have to get busy. Clean room or not.
Have the most wonderful day and I would love to see where you all create. Any ideas on how to make it better, I welcome them.
Hugs,Pea

Tonya,
a dinning room table is where I started and did work for over 10 yrs so I know how ya feel. It wasn't until we moved here that I got a real space and only because my kids were little.
I am working.

WoW Pea,
Can I come and work with you making dollies ?? Your work space/studio is just perfect ! Would you like to come and visit me for awhile ???

My sewing room is so small !

You must have a bigger Michael's Craft store out there.. I don't remember seeing those file/storage type containers at the two different Michael's I go to.. but I will have to comb every isle and make sure I didn't miss them.

Love your photos ! Thanks so much for sharing !
Hugs,
Linda

What a great room! You are so lucky to have your own sewing room. Mine is actually my dinning room that is shared with the computer. So tiny. One day we are going to expand. Right now each of the 4 kids have their own rooms and I don't have the heart to kick any of them out and make them share. Giggle.

Hey Pea - you did it!! You must be proud and it all looks awesome - thanks for sharing. If I could figure out how to use my blog I would share too but I am a gooseberry and can't figure it out, lol. Anyway, congrats and hope your creative juices start flowing now.

Linda,
I can come and play that would be fun huh? I would love to.
Now you think that room is big but girls it is only 10 x 10. That is pretty small.
Those shelves/drawers are with the scrapbooking organizers here. Our Michaels is a normal size one.
Thank you Linda
Have a wonderful day.
Blessings,Pea

Phillane E'lee said...

Mindy, feel better soon huh? I may need ya. LOL just kidding
hugs,Pea

Phillane E'lee said...

Jen,
Thank you so much. The table is where I crafted for years and my boys shared for years so I could have the room here. But then I needed somewhere to put the scarey stuff that the baby wouldn't get into at that time. No garage or I would have kept it there.
A room of your own will happen when someone moves out.. You will redorate in a weekend. Trust me! LOL
hugs,Pea

I am not exaggerating when I tell you that my dungeon would scare you! right now, I have one entire corner full of Christmas crafting supplies that I must find room for.

You sweet doll baby you! Thank you so much, you multi talented sweetness. Now to sing like a song bird is something and your dollies are wonderful and you have so much talent!
