Where THIS blogger creates!

Oh well, I'm a day late and a dollar short for that party!!
But no matter, I feel like having my very own shindig after
completing this studio transformation!!!

There is more space!!
Yes, I still have a few piles and goodness gracious
I just hope I can remember where I put everything.
If you're OCD these pics may seriously test you!

I really tried to group things though.
Now that my sewing machine is in the extra room,
I've placed most all of the sewing supplies in there
except of course all of the STACKS AND STACKS
of, I'm not moving all that.

So here are the photos I want to share with you ~
It's still not perfect but a vast improvement and
in doing this it has fired me up to create!!!

Here's a peek (just please ignore any dust you may see!)
And some of that clutter on top of the bookshelves
and black amoire will end up in my Etsy.

Wonderful Santa created by artist and friend Becky Carney ~

My advent calendar published in Somerset magazine ~

Artwork gifts from dear friends ~

Inspiration board ~

So, wanna come over and make something pretty??!!

Thank you always for stopping by to see what I'm up to.
I think I hear a little dolly calling my name....

Happy weekend precious friends,
hugs and love,

Beautiful Dawn...Reminds me...I need to reorganize my studio. Great inspiration here. It really does clear the mind and help make the creative juices flow when you rearrange and organize. Thanks for sharing your beautiful Studio!

Michele said...

Oh my goodness, Dawn it's AWESOME!

You are going to be so happy - and inspired to create. WOW, just so wow! Good job, congrats.

I would looooove to come over and learn how to make some pretty things. But, alas, I am not that talented, which is why I am one of your repeat customers. Hugs.

Love your work spaces!!!

So jealous! What a wonderful space! You deserve it. Thank you for sharing these photos. They will inspire me to get my own crafts organised.

Yup, I'll be right over with some iced coffee, Dawn! ; ) Your space {or spaces} looks great. It looks like you've got some room to spread out and move around, which I love. I wouldn't move all your fabric either. I'm sure it is just fine where it is. I'd love to know what books you've got on your shelves there. Crafting type books?

Love your behind the door organizer. I've got plans to get a shoe organizer and embellish it. I think it will give me more storage as well as utilize that space behind the door better.

I am Lov'in it Dawn! Are you making a shoe oragsnizer for the brown door like the white door has on it? So very pretty!
I pinned your studio too!
Smiles, Cyndi

ByLightOfMoon said...

I am also Jealous! If you can do this with two rooms, why can't I organize my whole attic space!

I need to de-clutter and get busy!


Brigitte said...

Dawn, looks wonderful! You have 2 stations-desks for sewing and one for paper... I like that! Thanks for sharing! Have a creative day!

Rhonda said...

I gasped and sighed with shear delight, Dawn. It's so warm and inviting. Trust me, making more room in your studio will be a blessing. Since I've de-cluttered my studio, I feel so much better.

I LOVE IT ALL. Yes, I would love to come over and create with you.

Riki Schumacher said...

Wow Dawn, I could create there, but then you would never get rid of me!! Charming, warm, hospitable, darling. Thanks for sharing!


Oh, my goodness if my studio looked like yours I'd never want to leave! Its simply gorgeous! And 2 of them at that! I would love to just hang out in there for about week and explore all of your lovely books.

Francine Perri said...

A really beautiful studio Dawn I love all the material and all you did with the place gorgeous

Jeanne Kelly said...

Your studio is amazing! So much to see in every nook and corner. It's a dream studio!

Vee said...

How lovely! You really did need more room! No wonder you were feeling pinched. Can't wait to see what comes from your new space next! Happy creating!

diane said...

FredaB said...

Dawn you did a great job and I do think it will energize you to create.

Can't wait to see your finished baby.


Lisa said...

Wow girl, you did good:)
I love all the space, and how many desks do you have in there anyway? Think I counted four. Love that organizer jammed full of stuff and all that fabric! My fave pic tho is the desk with those beautiful Jeanne d' arc curtains and the black umbrella. Have fun creating.

Oh my goodness...SO much delightful clutter, but oh so neatly placed !
I can do this and then in about a week or less, it's back to real serious "clutter" !
You have done a marvelous job here.
Are you a "surface user"..... like I am ?

Hi Miz Dawn,
What a nice morning I am having visiting your blog. The larger studio is inspiring, so much more room. You have it decorated so sweet with all your treasures.
I think you have painted a good eye, good for you, it is not easy. Your doll will be sweet when she can see. lol
The children are growing up so fast, time just flitters away. We started school here at the same time here, and I am still wondering what happened to June and July.
It seems all is well on your end. Here too, my sister is moving closer, so glad to have her near.
Have a great weekend!

I imagine this comment will go to your junk mail this many years later, but thought I'd try to let you know how fun it was looking through your space! Inspiring, whimsical in a mature way and made me smile!
