WHERE WOMEN CREATE!
WELCOME TO MY LITTLE SPACE! I hope you enjoy your visit.
I was so excited to be a part of this party. I was at the first party and it was so much fun. This is where I create. What do I create, you ask? I create a little bit of everything. I am a Serial Collector and among the things I collect are hobbies. I have quilted, made costumes, I scrapbook, I have painted stuff, I love to work with different crafts, I sew and love to make wreaths. My craft room is a collection of the many different forms of art and hobbies I do. It is filled with vintage buttons, ribbons, vintage lace, Ephemera, threads, stamps and inks, with vintage jewelry, and silver for projects. If you have a project you want to do, chances are good, I have the all the stuff to do it with.
This room became mine at the beginning of last year, when my son moved into the back house. It once was my son's bedroom. If you can believe this, I had all these items in nooks and crannies all over the house. I don't believe, I really managed to store all this stuff, but I did. I am still shocked at all I have managed to collect over the years. I am so grateful that they all have a home now. As you can see all the drawers are stuffed to the brim with various craft items and the tools of the trade. Each drawer has it's own display. It is important to me to open a drawer and look at the beauty of whatever is in that space. I like to make sure that each item has it's own special "wow", where it is stored.
One drawer is dedicated to only vintage hankies, another maybe to vintage flowers or antique cards. I love to also store vintage lace in crystal jars, the prettier the better. Did I tell you I collect paper? Paper is one thing I have trouble saying no to. I love this room it is constantly evolving. My table is a place where everything I work on gets dumped. It is where I put any yard sale goodies until I decide what to do with them. I tend to be very sloppy when I work. Things are very where. Most of what I make, I give away.
This home was a gift from God to me, and as the years go by I am more and more grateful for His blessings on my life. Thank you for stopping by "Where I Create!". I hope you enjoyed the tour! Blessings, Martha
