Where Bloggers Create

Well it is party time and here is my post for Where Bloggers Create. I do live in the country in a old farm house, over 100 year old. We have remodeled and built on to it several times. My space had never had any kind of theme or real organization about it. I just had a place to work and after mass creating it would turn into a mess. Most of the time I could not find things I needed. I do many different kinds of art so I needed several places to do different things. I have made many attempts at getting a space that was organized and made me feel good working in it. I tried many different plastic storage containers, just didn't do it for me. No offense to those of you who use them. They just were not what I wanted. I wanted a place that was primitive, shabby and vintage in decor. I needed a space that made me happy. My niece came over and said "you need to display your work in here" this is my space. The only thing is I don't keep a lot of my work. I did display a few dolls I have and thought I should display some of my beading. I wear my necklaces all the time but I thought I would display some of them, I have to many to put them all up. I am thinking about a small tree that I could put up more of my jewelry. This is still in thought process. I am not completely finished but, close. I painted the floor, desk(not finished), cabinets and the tables. I still want to make some rosettes for my table. I am also finishing some art for the walls. I hope to finish some more and post more pictures this week. I would love to know what you think of my space. Enjoy Hugs for now Be sure to click on the link and check out all the blogs.

Behind this door is where my art comes to life!!

Makayla's Doll

This is Makayla's 4H doll that she turned in today. I think she did a wonderful job and should have gotten Champion. She got a blue star but she is pretty down. It would be ok if what was picked was a good piece of art but, she said what got champion was a blue jean pocket with things stuffed in it! Well why wouldn't she feel bad. She did get champion on misc needle craft. So the day was not all bad. The same judge told Blake she would expect more craftsmanship out of someone his age? REALLY! What nerve, His piece was made in his art class taught by a true artist. I think we need to get rid of these old farm lady judges and get some people who appreciate art!
