I have been working on utilizing some new areas for me to work. My sewing area was in the next room and I had nothing to do my paper crafts in except for a table and no cabinets. I only wished that I would have taken a before photo, but I shall describe what it was before to somewhat get the picture.
I have a very large kitchen and have divided part of it for more space to sew and do my art work. The window treatment before were some plaid forest green kitchen curtains. Those came down and wanted to put up a shelf for more of my work pieces to be on display. The rabbit contains all of my Alice in Wonderland charms at the moment and the hanging photo piece is filled with ATC pieces. A couple of projects we did with Leilani, a photo of my husband when he was a baby and other odds and ends. The old pharmacy shelf I picked up one time when a store went out of business. It was the perfect place to put my brads, beads and other small things. I use to have a freezer sitting in that corner.
I love my little nook area where I work on ATC's, chunkie books, work on jewelry, stamping, etc. It had just started out with just the table that I had picked up at a yard sale several years ago. Then when I was in the thrift store, I ran across this stacking shoe shelf. It was just the thing I needed to make it more like a hutch for storage. Other stacking pieces I had and it all seemed to fall into place. The one cabinet under the table is actually my Koala drawer that fit fantastically! The other is a filing cabinet. Both are on wheels, so I can move at will. I love wheels!
In the corner is a white microwave stand that I picked up at a yard sale for $25.00. Great wood cabinet and it has a pull drawer you can see partly open at the moment, which comes in handy when I need that extra space to be working on something. The big cabinet holds my rubber stamps , paints, etc. As you can see Miss Fritzie is helping me make stuff!
Look at me! I am getting wings!
OH OH, she's serious! She's got the super glue out now!
O.K., now where's my halo!
I love my new sewing corner! Where the sewing table is now, use to be an ironing station. It is now in the room beyond the double doors. I will show that room later when I get into sorting more stuff and putting things where they belong again. It's a never ending battle! LOL The cabinet to the right of the sewing table, I had just picked up at a consignment store for $48.00. I love it that the drawers are long, deep and well constructed! You can also see my computer desk where I am much of the time when I am on line.
Here is the baby quilt that I had just finished binding for my husband's boss. They named their little boy Noah, so couldn't resist quilting up this cheater panel for him.
I also finished more Moulin Rouge chunkie book pages!
Some of you know me by now that I would certainly have to do something with pasties! LOL
I also wanted to do another interactive one. The blades spin and the door opens.......
to something quite revealing!
Here are 8 that I have finished. Two I shall keep and the other 6 are for trade
This is what the back of the chunky book pages look like
Whew! Lots of work here and speaking of, there is a mess already to clean up after all of this! I will have to see if my little helper, is flying around here somewhere.
