In the Studio in May

 

The May weather has been beautiful
but
truly, I'm not an outdoor person
that is why I created this craft room / studio
it's never exactly the way I want it arranged
but
keeps my mind busy
Since 2020, we've donated so much
from out home
from our garage
from this room
My plan to create a short video of my craft room
opening little drawers, big drawers
showing the collections
the tools
the whole thing
(studio sign from my friend Michelle)

So, stay tuned, I will be announcing
when that video is uploaded!!
*****
A new petite journal
that will be listed
in my Etsy shop soon
I hope everyone is well
and
creating away!
Thank you for stopping by!

April Inspiration

It is halfway through April
and
I hope everyone is creating away
I started out creating years ago
Etsy was new
Blogs were new
to still be at it...making something every single day,
is a miracle
there is always something to learn
in our creative community
new ideas
new makers
sharing and encouraging us to join in
that is why I sell supply kits
to get your interest
and
get going
I love to collect
and
some of you do as well
I re-opened my Etsy shop
I hope to list more kits soon
Hoping everyone has a wonderful
Good Friday
and
Easter Sunday

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Your Creative Side

 

Do you wonder how you
got your creative side?
As a child, I watched my parents create
from broken antique & vintage clocks,
to garage sale decor
it helped that they had very
creative and artist friends
those memories
stay with you
a lifetime
I never wonder why I create...
I already know
I may have had different influences
in life than my parents
but
all in all
we love to create
sharing that love
to
create

Faded Creations

Everyone is looking forward to Spring
I recently tea stained laces & trims
and
it was warm and breezy
so
I hung them outside to dry
What is it about laundry on the line
with a breeze
that centers us?
***
Meantime, back in the studio....
I've been creating
small books out of saved
antique French ephemera

This flat lay will be available for download soon!
More saved antique French ephemera
A little sample of the supply kits
that are in the makes
Thanks for stopping by!
Keep creating and inspiring others!

Spreading Happiness

Some people just know how to spread happiness 
&
Angie is one of them and a talented one at that!
I received 4 wonderful bundles from Angie
I created two short videos
as I opened each bundle
You can search
on YouTube
Part 1 Angie Happy Mail RP
Part 2 Angie Happy Mail RP

or
this was NEW TERRITORY for me!
I love taking photos,
but a video?
I was a bit anxious but I did it!!!
To see what Angie gifted me,
you will have to watch the videos!

February Fun

I'm not going to lie....
I want to take everything out of my craft closet
and start over!

Here is why....
found these beauties while
digging around in the craft closet
I started creating with them immediately!
We shall see if cleaning out the closet happens
this month

In the meantime,
I am enjoying my new slow pace
of creating
finally using what I've saved / hoarded
in my paper files
creating in numbers
gives you extra to tuck in journals
or kits
You can find me on Instagram

for more weekly posts!

Thanks for stopping by!
