Where Bloggers Create 2011!!!


Can you believe it's that time of year again??!!!
Thank you so very much Karen of My Desert Cottage
for hosting this amazing blog party ~

I love seeing everyone's creative space and so glad we have
all weekend to tip-toe through them all!

My family has moved since the party last year
and my creative space has dramatically decreased!
So it may look a little crowded in my photos...
because it is!!
I don't mind though ~ we moved to a very old home
and it has so much charm ~




I love looking around the studio and seeing other's artwork,
treasured finds and beautiful things ~
it's all so inspiring to me!!




Old trinkets, long forgotten seem to always find a home here :)



Old lace, the rattier the better, makes me smile.


Do you think I have enough fabric? This is just the creams, naturals and browns!




This shot is pretty rough looking ~
I haven't hung the bird canvas I made or the shelves
behind the sewing machine, but I will.
And all the stuff on those small wire shelves will hurt your eyes
but I love having supplies at arm's reach.



I've even managed to cram my computer in here!



My desk ~



You have to walk through my studio
to get to the living room or our bedroom,
you know how old houses are!!








OH! And you see my advent calender hanging on the side of the shelves below?
Lisa told me that Stampington has featured it again
in the recent issue of Handcrafted ~ I had no clue!












I hope you enjoyed peeking into my studio ~
As crowded as it may be, I'm so thankful for it!!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by to see me ~
Please be sure to head back to the Where Bloggers Create 2011 Blog
to see more creative spaces!

hugs and love,
Dawn

Hi, Dawn! So many beautiful treasures and creations. I think you had those curtains in your last studio? Love them. The bird canvas is fabulous too. Your studio looks so inviting. Wish I could come over and play!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Your studio seems like a very comforting place to be, Dawn! I love that large bird print you have. I am glad to see that there is someone who has more fabric than me! : ) I love the colors you used in both your creative spaces {the old one, too}.

Tammy ~ A Primitive Place said...

I love your creation space!!!
Ive been working on my new one this week.
But even when it is finished, it will still be a work in progress.
I need more stuff!! ;)
My room looks so bare!!!
I had it combined with my computer room and because of that, I thought I thought I had do much.
But now that is all alone, the poor little space looks bare.
Oh well, gives me room to buy more! Lol.
I hope to be able to show it off soon.
I would love one day for it to be as beautiful as yours, Dawn.
I doubt mine ever will be, but one can dream! Hehee.
Thanks for the inspiration,
Tam

Brenda ~ Shabby Cats and Roses said...

Hello Dawn :) Wonderful place to create in! And fabulous stash of fabrics and gorgeous lace trims to create with ~ I too have some special pretties and treasures that decorate my space...gotta surround yourself with more than just the usual creating items and such. I had thought to put our computer in my room as well, but decided to have it in our Dining Room, that way I have my sewing room ALL to myself, LOL :) Thanks for sharing you wonderful space with us...lots of wonderful ideas for everyone to incorporate into their own!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Rebecca said...

Love it just as much if not more than last year. YOU BE THE ONE girly! YOU ROCK! Love your work, your vision, your passion.

Yep...I'm hooked!

Vee said...

Yes, milady, I did enjoy seeing your workspace. Even though it's smaller than your former one and even though there are many treasures, it looks beautifully organized to me. I'm going back to look through it all again.

Gail said...

Dawn,
Oh my goodness, I think you could make the inside of a paper bag look fabulous!!! What a stunning and cozy space, well done!

BLISS angels said...

Dawn I love your studio even with it been packed in..... It feels peaceful....I could spend hours looking at it beautiful


I hope you'll pop over to see me... hugs wendy

Bread and Butter said...

I love your creative space, everywhere you look there are projects just waiting to be dreamed up. I too have limited space and every inch has to be used for something. And to top that off, we are moving and my space will be out of boxes for awhile. Enjoyed your pics. Terri :)

Laura @ 52 FLEA said...

Oh Dawn, I would love to explore in your wonderful studio. It is filled with all sorts of inspiring goodies and yet appears to be an inviting and restful place to create. Off to check out more creative spaces! Take care, Laura :)

Debbie@Debbie-Dabble said...

Dawn,
I so loved the tour of your studio!! So many pretty things to look at. I will have to come back and take a better look! So many inspiring ideas. I love how you have your fabric folded on shelves. Great idea!! And I think it looks lived in and well loved which I am quite sure it is!! It is a great space !!
Thanks so much for sharing it with us!!

Hugs,
Debbie

Amy Kinser said...

This area is gorgeous. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that bookcase full of linens. I also LOVE those burlap curtains. Gorgeous all around...

Your space is wonderful Dawn and as long as we have somewhere to create and are happy that is the best part, I just keep creating nooks and crannies as needed! Hugs Marilou

Okio B Designs said...

What a great little spot to draw inspiration from! I'm inspired just looking at it. Everything is so precious!

Char said...

Oh Dawn, I would be right at home in your wonderful space, of course, I wouldn't get anything done because I would be too busy going through all your gorgeous treasures!!
Congratulations on your new home and your special place is lovely. Thanks for sharing it with me, Char

Kathryn Ross said...

My favorite part is your cabinet filled with all those lovely cream and white fabrics, folded so neatly! I love textiles! Your arrangement of treasures is a marvel! Thank you for sharing your creative space with us - so inspiring!
Joy!

So many fabulous things to enjoy, but the little girl's shoes with the scuffed toes stole my heart! This is an amazing studio - thanks for sharing.

Stop by and see me if you get a minute.....

Maggie said...

Just lovely and dear, Dawn. I love your space and can tell that you must love it too, by all the sweet touches all around. I love that you create precious vignettes to make it special and pretty, and so much more than just a practical, sterile workspace. Very inspiring, indeed. Hope you can come visit my space, too!

Thanks for the tour!.....maggie

Hi Dawn: I love your space and how it is so full of character and creative pieces. Now I see how you channel your visions and make such amazing art pieces...You surround yourself with inspiration and love of all things dreamy. Sunshine Smiles to you...

Beth Leintz said...

Just beautiful - all those "low colors"- so inspiring - what a wonderful place to spend your creative time.

marie said...

What a warm & cozy & totally inspirational place to create in! I love your space Dawn. Your fabric stash is amazing and that petticoat hanging from the ceiling just makes me smile!

I love the window treatment, and lucky you, with your desk right there you get to look at it all the time!

It's no wonder you create such beautiful things!

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Oh sweetie,
From the first picture to the last I am ohhhing & ahhhing! It's funny, I haven't been in your studio but I feel like I have. I can see the precious baby outfit Dennis bought you, the nests the boys gathered, the little brown shoes that became pincushions, the cream parasol we've discussed... it's all so familiar. It's wonderful, every last piece of lace & every last button. Lisa

kluless said...

Dawn, If I could I would just dive right through the screen. I have a small space, too, but not your knack for creative display. The ROOM is a mixed media work of art!

Lovey said...

Oh Dawn!! I love your creative space. So warm and inviting! All your linen, ;ace and trims are beautiful too! So very vintage!

Feathers and Flight said...

Oh Dawn! Your Studio is just Lovely! A wonderful Space to Create! I Love the Little Crinoline and you Cabinet Card Display!

Phwoar Dawn when sometimes I think that my studio is really full and stuffed now, I have to come back and look at yours filled with treasures from ground to ceiling, simply amazing!
I have to go back and look at all the beautiful details again now.
Happy WBC party wishes sends you

Enjoy

Theresa said...

Oh I love it Dawn! I could spend DAYS in there looking at all of your goodies! What a wonderful place to create! Have a blessed day, HUGS!

Lisette said...

Girl, I envy you so much for your own craftsroom. I live in a very small house (that I lovingly call home) and have no room for my own craftsroom.
And yours is so full of treasures. I wish I could have a look. I think it would take me hours to come out again. If I would...........
I would be the kid in the candystore.
Don't worry, I live in the Netherlands, you can breath again ;-).
I can't stop looking at the photos. Your curtains...............how did you get/make those? Super!
thanks for this post.
Lisette x

JeanFB said...

What a delightful, treasure-filled space! Thanks for sharing. :)

trash talk said...

That's what I call good crowded. I love the little glimpses of "real" and not "staged" in your room. It's a work of art reflecting an artist working.

Oh my goodness, Dawn, you've really made good use of your new space! I could spend hours in there - just looking at everything up close.

Rowann said...

Dawn, You have worked MIRACLES...All your treasures look so amazing ! I too have moved this year. We are now living over the SHOP , I am loving it. My workroom is now smaller and still not organized ...HELP... How did you get all your STUFF so you can find it? Maybe next year I will be ready to share mine.

Lynn Richards said...

Dawn, this is fabulous! Old houses are the best, even if they are a bit small. You seem to have made the best of it! I love the ideas of the wire shelves. If I can't see it, I forget I have it, so these are perfect. Thanks for inviting us in, xo

Deb said...

Hi Dawn
You've created such a beautiful Studio Space ♥ Thank you for the tour.

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Hi Dawn...

I forgot to tell you......I FINALLY found the directions for my little bird tute I purchased from you when I was organizing my studio for the party.... I was thrilled.... I thought it was gone forever and I've bought LOTS of that clay.... LOTS! I'm thinking they'd make adorable Christmas ornaments...

I have that same little bird nest/cloche thingy that's in your top photo too! :-)

myartsdesire said...

Wonderfully done, Dawn! Since I've followed your blog for a long time I know that you used to have the big converted garage as your studio. So to downsize your area had to be a major accomplishment...and you did it beautifully. My heart is always warmed the way you see the world through a grateful heart. That little jacket/hat/dress ensemble makes me weak in my knees! Precious. Xo, Sue

TheFairyyellowbugQueen said...

Your spot is beyond, beyond, beyond anything I could ever even dream about. It's lovely. Dreamy. Magical. Love it. *smiles* Norma

Cindy Craine said...

Well you knew I'd be stopping by and as always you never cease to amaze me girl. This was after a move or during a move? Lord have mercy girl, you've got more talent in your pinkie toe than I do in my whole body! I love all of it! Perfect! :)

Kaye Swain - SandwichINK for Grandparents and Caregivers said...

It may be small but it's so gorgeous and lovingly arranged. My favorites were your photos with sweet family memories and the very cool hand. Thanks for a lovely visit.

Jenny said...

Dawn, about two years ago I typed 'burnt organza flowers' into the google search engine and found your blog and I was amazed, but couldn't find the blog again, then about a month ago I re-discovered you and your blog was the inspriation for me starting my blog. You are an absolute inspiration and I admire your creativity so much. AND your space has not dissapointed, it is just how I imagined it to be. Well done!

I have enjoyed my visit to your place and I hope you stop by mine. I love all your birds always and my name also happens to be Dawn. Have a great day!

Sally L. Smith said...

Lovely! The thing that stood out the most to me was your beautiful embroidered netting (don't know the real name for that kind of lace). I find it difficult to locate at a price I can afford. You've done a great job organizing your small space. Did you put the odds and ends leftovers in your shop?

Terri Gordon said...

Hi Dawn, Oh what a lovely place to create, so many inspirations. I could look at your photo's all day. Thank you for sharing your wonderful space. Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri
