My hubby painted an old desk a yummy vintage pink. It is now my computer desk in my studio. Beeeeautiful!


September 2006 - My New Credenza

September 2006 - My New Credenza

I love, love, love this piece. I bought it for $20 when Cami's Paperie in Purcellville, VA closed. The drawers hold my Sizzix dies, punches, Wishblade, Super Carl Cutter, Scor-It, Light Box, Paints, Foam Stamps, Ribbons, Adhesives, Colored Pencils, Paints and much more! I am trying to leave the top clear as a work surface so that I can pull a tool out of the drawer, use it, then put it back. Heaven!

January 2007 - Color Tags For Paper Storage

January 2007 - Color Tags For Paper Storage

I stole this idea from the January 2007 BH&G Scrapbooks Etc. What a way to dress up my vertical Cropper Hopper paper storage! Just a circle punch & metal rimmed tags & you're ready to go. Now I can tell which colors or themes are in the folders. I love it!


January 2007 - Fibers

January 2007 - Fibers

I know that fibers aren't as hot as they used to be, but I still love 'em! In the past, I've organized them in big beautiful jars (too much of a hassle to get them out) and one big rubbermaid box (what a nightmare that was!).
I've spent the past two weeks spooling each of the color strands or color groups onto embroidery thread cards and storing them in bead boxes. I have three boxes full and they fit perfectly in one of my Accesorizer Cubes (with a shelf). Now I can take them to crops with me!

My inspiration board

My inspiration board

I painted an old easel aqua (one of my studio colors), then padded a corkboard frame with a red/white heart fabric. Now I can pin up inspirational photos & ideas.

Every artist needs a pair of gloves to use when working with icky things. I love these dollar store finds!


Class Samples

Class Samples

I have an entire shelf dedicated to my class samples. It's getting so overwhelming that I think it is time to clear some of them out on Etsy.


Brushes

I love the pink/red/white candy corn from the Pennsylvania Dutch Market in Baltimore. My friend Suni keeps me well stocked!

Pink shelving

Pink shelving

My grandmother gave me her cherished Franklin Mint bell collection years ago, before she passed away. I loved it as a child (I earned "chore money" by dusting her bells). Although I'm not a knick knack person as a grown-up, my beloved bells are in the attic and the display case has been re-purposed to hold my A Muse Artstamps. It makes me smile & think of my grandmother everytime I look at it!


Card carousel rack

Card carousel rack

I found this in the Pottery Barn catalog several years ago & just had to have it. It holds my handmade cards, so they are ready to go!!


Stuff

Stuff

Good gravy, I have a lot of stuff. I picked up this retro pink toy Pottery Barn kitchenware from my niece when she outgrew it. It was supposed to be for my oldest daughter, but Mommy claimed dibs first!


Accu-Cut Machine

Accu-Cut Machine

I love this bad boy. He allows me to cut the large professional dies, as well as my Sizzix (& even my Nestabilities)!

I picked this cute little house up at Michaels. Slapped a little paint on her & made her pretty! Now she houses my everyday acrylic stamps.
