Where Bloggers Create 2012

Welcome to my creative space. This is where I spend WAY too much time! I like to dabble in mixed media, scrapbooking, leather crafts, home decor projects, and what ever else might come my way that keeps me occupied.
 This is where I keep my unmounted rubber stamps, paints, Tim Holtz stamp pads, Vinyl, misc. craft supplies
 My main work space. A huge and HEAVY desk I got at an estate sale for $25. It holds a TON of supplies!

The photo above shows one of my favorite things... a caddy from Faber -Castell. It holds all my Pitt Pens and all my Faber -Castell things.

Love my glass glitter from Melissa Francis.

Taking the Lifebook class with Tamera LaPort. This was one of the first assignments. I painted her using my Caran De'Ache colors.

An idea I found maybe on Pinterest. An old rake head used to hold my necklaces. I think I love it. I just put it up tonight and the old rusty look is growing on me.

Where I spend WAY to much time on Pinterest....

I'm loving all things Junk Gypsy right now. Here is the LINK to their site Gypsyville. You can find their show on HGTV on Saturday nights at 6:00pm Central time. You will not be disappointed. It's funky junk at it's best!

A few of my favorite things: Antique buttons galore. A plastic cup covered in crepe paper streamers, my guardian angel standing guard over all things, Junk Gypsy box that my necklaces came in.

My best friend, the Silhouette Cameo. Santa brought if for me last Christmas and I love it!! If you're on the fence about one... don't be, buy it NOW!

Love Kelly Rae Roberts!!

Inside my messy closet. It holds a lot of things. Behind the door is a tall shelf with more things hiding out of sight. I've got my dies and Big Shot hiding behind Betty. My dress form, yes I named her...Betty. I've yet to use her but she keeps me good company :-)

She Art Girls from Christy Tomlinson's classes.

More Kelly Rae Roberts goodies!

The absolute Best Magazines in the world! Where Women Create... I wish it came out more often. Just can't get enough!

Blogging Sorority creation

Was brown wood but I painted and distressed it. Looks much more "me" now. Got it at Hobby Lobby sometime last year. It sat unused for months. Now it is stuffed! and very much loved.

Cricut Imagine and carts. I need to use this gem more than I do.  Update it and use it, yes that is the plan!

Pinterest inspired. An old frame, pink spray paint, old cork board and a burlap peanut bag. Cut the corkboard down to fit the opening of the frame (bought at a yardsale), cut the burlap and staple to the cork board, hot glue in the frame and there ya have it. I just hated to pin anything to it. It was pretty with nothing on it.

My family... that is me that my daddy is holding. Probably around 1975 or so. I was a daddy's girl! I sure do miss him.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking a peek into my creative space. I hope you will leave a message for me and let me know you've stopped by. I'll be sure to come on over and visit you! Happy Scrappin'

Good afternoon! I've been traveling all over the country, and I've landed in your craft room!! have some great items in there! The first thing to catch my eye are those adorable doily swags!! How cute!! Great idea! And that rake to hold hanging items...hmmmm do you think hubby would mind if I sawed the handle off of ours??? I love that!!
So glad you joined the party!!
Blessings, Doni

Great creative space area you have made for yourself!! So many fun things to look at- I love that Silhouette machine- wish I could reach right in the computer and borrow it for a bit! So want to get one but just do not see that I can justify spending the kind of money on it. I have been entering every silhouette giveaway there is in blogland hoping to win someday!

I have a new little creative space for me thanks to all the years of visiting all those wonderful Where Women Create parties- would love for you to come by for a wee visit!

bee blessed

Lisa your studio adorable! I love it, and I'm sure you are happy camper whenever you are in there!! Thank you so much for sharing it with everyone this year! I really had fun here!!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

What a great room, Lisa! I think we have a lot in common in how are rooms are set up. I wish I had a closet though. I'm just glad I have an actual room this year! I like to do a variety of different types of creating, too. Sewing is my main thing right now. I think you've done a great job storing and organizing everything, as well as keeping plenty of pretties in sight!

Something Special said...

Oh I love your scrappin space lots and lots. You have some great storage ideas. I love the old rusty rake for a hanger, and your apothecary jar with the white buttons is the same as the one I keep my white buttons in. Oh and I would love love to have a Silhouette, maybe someday Santa will bring me one. Thanks for the tour, and i am a new follower.

Sherry said...

I enjoyed touring your fun inspiring space. I love the rake idea and your jar of white buttons, my favorite thing. I love that your things are organized and out to be seen.

Jenny said...

Hi Lisa,

Love all your milk glass container. I use them quite a bit too. What is the Silhouette Cameo? Sorry had to ask. I started following you once again. I stopped blogging on my old ladonaboutique blog. When you have a minute check out my new blog. Take care.

Wish we could meet meet IRL cause we love a lot of the same things, from the crafts we make to the shows we watch to the artists we admire!! (HGTV, Junk Gypsies, Kellie Rae, Christy Tomlinson, etc. . . ) I love your room and think you have done a wonderful job of both decorating and organizing

BTW, I bought a Silhoutte Cameo a fe months ago and am so afraid of the darn thing I haven't taken it out of the box yet, any advice?

Thanks for sharing your room with us!

I dont think its inpossible for one to stay too long in a space of creation... Really cute space and I love that rake idea (I have two old rakes that I picked up and thought about doing the same thing in my space, when I can get it done)... Fun tour, thank you for sharing your space : )
