Tour: Art Studio

I spent last weekend cleaning up my poor neglected & disorganized art studio. It was a hum-dinger of a mess. But now it's all spiffy & pretty-like! YAY!
I've had eager fans wanting to see pics. I'm almost embarrassed to show them. Honestly, it's nothing fancy. And it still looks kinda messy. I'm just not one of those "everything in its perfect place" kinda people.
My style is that slightly disheveled, lived-in, wee bit unkempt, work-in-progress sort of look. All the time.
But here it is anyway...

An eclectic mess. Complete with a hottie picture of Mr. WhiMSy love when he was a teenager.

This is how I create my Vintage Button Rings. I work on a TV tray.

This is the view looking inside the walk-in closet turned shipping station. It's a mess.
We won't go in there right now.

Mostly vintage fabrics. And old records.

Knick-knacks on my computer desk. The wind-up Panda pencil sharpener from the $1 Store is a fave.


This is where I blog. And edit photos. And fill my Etsy shop with goodies. And read your lovely comments & emails.


Sewing station.

 {Mostly} handmade magnets.

That's Harold. Remember him?

  1. hey we're mac twins! love your creative space

  2. I love seeing your studio and am jealous of it. It's someplace I could see myself crafting. I simply love your fabric stash, it makes me drool. And all your little details around the room are so fun. I love that you have a picture of your girls on your sewing machine. I do have a question. With your vintage button rings, why are they sitting in a plate of rice? Is it to keep them from rolling everywhere? I know, probably and obvious yes to that but just wanted to make sure. At first I thought it was for an artistic look but then thought otherwise. LOL! Love your studio. :-)

  3. Thanks for the studio love!

    Sue--it's actually not a Mac. It's a PC.

    Chelle--The rice is to keep the rings steady & upright after I assemble & glue them.

  4. Love you space!!

    Oh & RANdOM: I had a dream the other night that we came to visit you... and we jumped & crafted while the boys chatted about boy things... yeah...
