Where Women Make a Mess ~

That's kind of how my studio is right now, just a big ol' mess!
And all I have to show for it are two lousy peat pots....
yep, I said the "p" word.

I do keep staring at this though, I think that must count for something :)

A few shots around...this first photo's not too bad,
just a crazy collection of goodies.

Need a peat pot? :)

I love these Mud Pie boxes I found at a yard sale ~
all for one buck.
I think "Hoarders" is at the door...I'll be right back.

Need a peat pot?

I am in the goofiest mood!

Like you've not seen this enough,
I'm just so proud of the Walnut Ink doing the trick staining this moss.
I just spray it on and let it dry...
plus I'd never used the stuff before and it's good to use
some of your stash, right?

Just a random shot of the sewing table...dried flowers?

And to finish off this fabuloso post....
sweet girl is livin' the life!!!!
Kicked back watching Yo Gabba Gabba!

Oh, and did you know...
This gorgeous shot is of Rebecca of Vintage Living's
former store???!!!!

I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday dear friends!
hugs and love,

Your studio and mine have a lot in common :). Or maybe I should say :(.
One of these days it will be of these days!

Dawn ~ You are cracking me up ! I saw Lisa from Tarnished and Tattered today and was talking to her about my blogging blank ~ I think I need to kick back and watch Yo Gabba Gabba ~

Charlene said...

OH SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO LOVED THE TITLE OF THIS POST!!!! And have you been looking in my studio window? I am supposed to be "getting it together for Karen's Studio Blog Party in June. WHAT WAS I THINKING? I think Clara has the right idea. A sippeeeeee cup & a show to take my mind off of it! Enjoy your week. HUGS!

Angela said...

Great title!! and it surely must describe most of us. I can't believe very many of us can create without making a mess.

Lynn Stevens said...

Hey I think you've got a new magazine title here! LOL

Colleen - the AmAzINg Mrs. B said...

Hey, Hoarders just left my place and they said to let you know they're in their way..and Ill take being a creative G-Ma anyday over being a old-does-nothing-all-day-but-watch-soap-operas GrandMa! You're teaching Clara to love the creative side of herself..good for YOU!

Vicki Boster said...

Love this Dawn - especially the title! Just perfect for my room - what a mess! I will have to do a major clean up before I can participate in the event - oh dear!

Love your goodies - don't worry - Hoarders wont be at your house until after they leave mine!


Lori said...

Dawn, you are so darn cute:) such a funny post title...yes, as a matter of fact...i do need a peat pot...they are sold out everywhere here...did you buy them all?...LOL...your little Clara is getting big already...she looks so tall in that pic!!!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh, your mess is my heaven! LOVE IT!!! Anita

Dorthe said...

Hi sweetie,
if you saw my room ,you would relax, yours are just beautifull compared with my major mess,-I`m collecting far too many things ,of all kind,--so don`t you worry,dear friend.
I just find your place so very inspirative, and full of beauty,even when messed up a bit---so you just enjoy, like Clare.......

Many love and huggs from me.

Linens Lace and Lattes said...

Could we organize a 'when women make a mess' party? watcha think?

Carol Mae said...

Your too funny Dawn, I love your p-pots, I think they are stunning. I may have to order one. Have a great day, Smiles, Carol Mae

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

You know, Dawn, you really should talk about your peat pots more. ; ) I love them and I'm sure they'll go quick. I think you've got a great studio ~ mess and all!

Sandy said...

What is a studio for except to make beautiful messes that turn into treasures? Have a sweet day!

Sheila Rumney said...

I am so glad to see another artist have a mess, but your's looks a whole lot neater than mine!

Have a great day!

madrekarin said...

Oh, my gosh! Your post title made me laugh and I needed that today. I'm up to my eyeballs in wedding party preparations (say that five times fast!) and took a break to come see what you're up to. You have aptly described my entire house! Good night above. Only three more days.....
And yes, I do need a peat pot. Oh, wait, that should be a pity pot. lol

Unknown said...

Dawn you are funny. That will be title of my book not the other one. It's called creative chaos and it works for some of us. The clean up, that is another story. Can you find your stuff? I can't, many times so I opt for the easy way out, go to the store and buy more. Not good, I know. My husband pay me a compliment the other day, sort of. This is how it went" You are so talented, you can decorate and make great things BUT...You are the most disorganized person I have ever met" Arg, but he is right. God help us. Blessings, Marta.

Joy Lett said...

I was just thinking about cleaning up my studio/office today. Maybe not but it is hard to create when it's so messy. I hate you are struggling with your "p-p". I hate when that happens. Do something else first and then come back to them. Sometimes that helps. I have these wooden birds I have remodeled at least 3 times and I still am not happy with them. They are in a drawer. Hey maybe you could get your blogland friends to make a "p-p" of their own and something would inspire you. Just a thought- sometimes you need a good brainstorm with no limits. ;-)

At Home in English Valley said...

SO funny Dawn, If Where Women Make a Mess was a magazine, I might get published! I have to make a mess to be creative, is there another way? Thanks for the smiles today, Love, Penny

Kim-Fille de Fleur said...

Hi Dawn,
Getting ready for Glitterfest has made my studio such a mess that I can not even bring myself to take a photo! There is not one square inch of my large table free to work on. So today it all gets picked up because enough is enough. If it is not made by today it is not going with me! RIGHT! I always say that.

Anyway I loved this "goofy" post and it made me feel much better about my mess! I have lots to do before WBC.

marie said...

Great title!! So true of so all the comments show!
All I can say is "my mess is bigger than your mess!".

P.S. Mis Clara ~ is there room on that bear for me?

Vee said...

Well, my friend, at least you have a pot to peat in! LOL! I'm in a ridiculous mood, too. Must be all these torrents of rain. Loved your title and had to come see the mess except you skillfully didn't show us any. Now join Clara on the floor and have some different kind of fun!

Secondhandrose said...

Love the pic of Clara! That is the life for sure!


Anne Lorys said...

My name is Anne...I like to DANCE!!!
That's my Yo Gabba Gabba shout out for ya. ;-)
Isn't that just the trippiest show EVER?

Anyway, I think your mess is quite inspiring. And yes, I COULD use a peat pot, now that ya mention it!


Lisa said...

Girl, I'm laughing my butt off. The 'P'word, oh Noooo not again. LOL I think you have inhaled too much walnut ink. Dennis is going to come home & see you spraying the weeds in the garden with walnut ink! We might just have to have a double feature Hoarder's episode. My junk is piling up too. Clara looks like such an angel. PS Don't let her watch Callou. Lisa

Oh Dawn, I can relate. My grandson Vincent, 2yrs., loves YoGabbaGabba! I should be working in my crocheting and gluebook but Yo gets alot of my time. Your craft area looks just fine to me. p.s. I've bought some peat pots too and they are still in the Menards bag. Smiles, Sally

Too funny, Dawn! And if your granddaughter is in your studio...she's in the right place! Gramma is a wonderful influence on her! Lucky little girl!

Mosaic Magpie said...

Love Mud Pie boxes. The picture of Rebecca's shop----Oh My!

Rebecca said...

Dear Dawn,
Oh, now I know why I keep coming back to your beautiful blog...for inspiration! I love your witty writing and photos of peat pots! And baby Clara is the sweetest!
Thank you for sharing your life with us virtual visitors :)
With happiness in a busy day,

Shabby Cottage Studio said...

I'm in the midst of re-arranging (yet once again) my studio so your title is appropriate for me right now! LOL That Clara is such a dollbaby!
Want a peat pot? Funny. I too have a stack of them waiting for me to be able to get to them (when the mess is cleared out). I can send you some if you don't have enough. LOL
much love

The Tin Rabbit said...

Great Post Dawn! I'm kicking my way into my husband told me last night he was afraid I was going to get hurt in much stuff on the floor~but, I need to look at everything at one time! You need some more peat pots? Have a great week! Love and Hugs, Ann

Sue said...

What a fun post! I love the comment about "Hoarders" being at the door. I have a feeling my place is next on their list!!


Elyse said...

hi dawn!

i am loving your fun post, lovely mess, and little yo gabba gabba watchin' cutie.

keep on having fun! (for PEAT's sake) LOL


Beth A. @ Songbird Hill said...

Dawn, looks like you've got some good projects in the works. My son called me a "hoarder" this weekend, just because I made him pick up a drawer unit on the side of the road that had a sign marked "free" on it! It really hurt my feelings when he said it too. (Not really!) I was thinking it the whole time I was shoving it in the truck!

Alison Gibbs said...

Amazing how much they love Yo Gabba Gabba. 2 and 1/2 yo Riley loves it too
Nice to see a creative mess :-)

Karen said...

Funny you brought up peat pots!! LOL I was thinking about you and looking for some in the store the other day!! Darn I didn't find any though!! Love your posts always!!Hugs, Karen

The Rustic Victorian said...

You do make me smile sweet Miz Dawn. You have the best most beautiful messes,,,and that little peanut is growing so fast.

Marcie Rhys said...

You are one funny lady! Love your humor.

All the lovely messes are for inspiration. I've started looking at things differently since reading your fabulous blog. Your pictures make art out of any subject. (This is no small feat, given my efforts are still photos of messes.)But, in true-to-you-style, I took a picture of my husband's laundry hanging in the basement. Beautiful colors - soft beige, sage, soft deep green, cream, and light pink, and on top of that, lots of textures.

The eyes that saw that were taught by you. Thank you for my beautiful new world!


Elizabeth said...

Love all the photos, today. I am so admiring of the beautiful girl in the white dress. Enjoyed seeing pictures of your studio. Love, love, love the white bedroom. So inspiring.


Unknown said...

Sometimes it just works out this way Dawn....

I went to read your blog yesterday...saw this gorgeous sunflower art and had to do something with it!

I almost immediately put it on this pillow...GORGEOUS!

Isn't this what blogging is all about?

Love to you and your family.

That picture of Clara is the sweetest!
