WHERE WOMEN CREATE 2012!




Hi Ladies: I have joined the biggest party in blogland all year, "Where Woman Create!". I have been a part of this party since Karin started and I am excited that I did not miss it this year. I had a yard sale today, at my daughter home and it took most of the last few days to get ready for it. The sale is over and it does not it look like I took a flee bit out of my things, oh well. (At least I am not a hoarder!) :)



My craft room has change a great deal since last year. I had a friend who stayed with me while her home got out of probate. It was going to be just a couple of months and it took almost a full year. She is in her new home now and I have my craft room back, only instead of a table I have a bed in there. I moved the table into the master bedroom and I think that is where it will stay for a while. I am expecting guests from Japan next week.






As you can see, I love to fill pretty jars with buttons, glitter and lace.
I also painted the room a very pale pink. I think it is so much easier to create in "pink." My grandchildren, have also taken up a part of the room for their toys. Noah calls it his craft room. As you can see everything is different and yet the same. I have added more collectibles especially hats.




Each drawer if filled with ribbons or jewelry, scrapbook supplies and gadgets. I love "unless pieces of junk you can't live without."




The room has a happy feekm not only because of the color and the endless supplies, but also because my grandson loves to craft in here too. I am never short of projects, always short of time. I love to do craft projects and try at least once a week to have ladies or children over to enjoy this space and create something special. When asked if I have this or that, I love to say "YES!"


I am looking forward to visiting over the wonderful spaces that you share. You can never have enough ideas or creative projects. Thank you Karen for this delightful event!


Happy Creating! Martha

Well this is fun! I have the shell of my craft room built and as soon as I can get through my stuff my handyman is going to finish the inside for me. I have been gathering idea and buying cabinets, etc. I actually love the journey. It's coming together in my mind. Wanted to finish by fall, but we have a wedding this year, so it probably will be a spring project.
LOVE you room and thanks for lots of good ideas.

I love that you have incorporated some of your 'collections' in to your craft space, the jars of glitter, the coloured glass jars and your grand-kids things as well - what a wonderful idea. A beautiful space full of personality - I love it.

Fun studio space. Thank you for sharing.

Karen Valentine said...

Hi Martha! I'm so glad you could join the Where Bloggers Create party again this year! Your studio is so sweet and pretty, and what could be better than creating with those you love!!!!

Martha,
I just wanna say LOVE!!!!
I love your space. You have an endless supply of eye candy treasures. I was already making stuff by looking at your stuff,lol..
I think "Pink" for your craft room was a perfect choice.
My most favorite thing is that you have ladies or children come over at least once a week to create.
I think that is what the good Lord wants, is for us to share our creativity with others especially children.
I could look all day long at your creative goodness you have around you. I got a chuckle when you mentioned hoarding,lol.. though I just recently sold a ton of stuff at a yard sale, I know it wont take long to accumulate more :)
Thanks so much for the tour,
now I have to check out the rest of your blog :)

Thanks again,
~Diane

Lovely room, Martha! All the more nicer having a grandson who likes to craft with you. I have a 2 year old granddaughter who just walks into my space right now, looks around and says "Wow", so I'm hoping I'll have a crafting companion some day soon. : ) Thanks for sharing your creative space!
