Where Boggers Create 2013 - My Spaces







Welcome once again to my 
Place to Create
   I still have my two spots for friends to join me.

 

This year I am crafting for a new little girl in my life
A New Grand Daughter
This is going to be her Birthday Dress




My workspace seems to be a mess lots these days.
You see I have had many medicals problems this past year
That has really kept me from crafting and blogging all the same..




I have added to my shelves some fun things from swaps and friends.
Hope to have this all painted to match
By next years blog hop.. 

Fingers crossed..



Last year I added a Sewing room to my spaces.




For this space I did get a wall arrangement
This huge frame will soon be my design board
For my Quilting I have started
The Mirror above will be a Inspiration board too
I have had this mirror since my early 20's 
She has traveled the world with me..
She so needed a make over..


  

This room like the other has piles of mess
That I need to address.
Most is projects that need to get done
SOON!!



I got me a new friend to talk with also
Her name is "Sandy"
After my friend I lost this past year.



Another thing I have started over the last year is
Coloring with all kinds of markers.
I am so in love with the new Prima Dolls

My Sewing Journal is a work in progress
Hope to work more on her soon.



I have done a few altered Projects too
Stacked Tart and Pie Plates
Great for fun storage. 



I have done a few things with Bed Springs
My Springy Top Hat Guy
Also my fun birds nest in the background





Another passion I picked up is making
Hat Pins.. I am so addicted to these now.. 
I have them stuck everywhere..




I have been so inspired by Pinterest
I even dabbled a bit into 
Steampunk with this Fun Manni Head




My Famous Stacked wall is still one of my 
Funnest features of my place to create
I cleaned this out lots this past year
And did a major reorganizing here.. 


  
Some of my fun things.. 
Fiends sure send me lovely things to decorate my Studio

Notice for those returning from last year.. 
I still have the same High Heel Shoe
Still un-finished... Yikes.!!! 
Maybe this year right!!



I have also dabbled into some jewelry making
I inherited lots of beads with my friends passing
I try hard to use them well...
I think I need classes soon....



I did however accomplish one of my goals from last year
I do have all my stamps organized and ready to use.
I joined a Stampin Up group to meet new people
So now I can say I actually do some stampin too...




I sure hope my medical issues get back on track so 
I can get back to bloggin

I sure do miss it.. 
And having my craft journal is so much fun to share...

Thanks so much for the visit.. 
Come again.. 
I will be posting fun things soon...

Have fun looking around.

I am off to check out all the other fun places.. 

Hugs
DeeDee

Modeling Paste Challenge

If you are looking for my Grow Your Blog Giveaway please click 
Grow Your Blog Post Here






Hi Y'all

I joined in on a fun challenge from


It offers a new technique
taught by


Check out the Technique 

Angela Holt Designs

Then hurry back and see how I used this 
Technique on my design

I know I Know!!!
A Little on the dark side. I was inspired by one 
I seen and had to give it a try since 

1. I had all the supplies
2. I need this texture to do it
3. I wanted to play with this stuff badly
4. I wanted to be different than the others.

So I was way different!!!!

Here we go with my Skully Guy

I covered the Altoid Box with the new modeling paste
That I had colored a dirt color and added a bit of sand for added texture
I cut up my Glittery Skully Guy and added him to the top


Then I painted him all white


Then I started my distress and staining technique

I love how this looks
the little glitter shards actually make it look like
Wet Mud



Side view offers a little rest in piece (R.I.P)
I stamped into a piece of copper


The top View


I still need to do the inside
But am undecided what
I really wanted to use this for


So there ya have it.. I had tons of fun working on this
The new Modeling Clay so fun to work with
And fairly cheap and easy to make.

Check out all the entries at



Join in and try it out yourself
Its a fun mess to get into...

Happy Crafting.

A Challenge for My Friends

Hi Everyone...

Last year I went shopping and found a pile of 
Embroiderer Hearts.
That looked like this
I thought how fun is this



I mailed one each out to several of my sewing friends 
As a challenge just for fun
To see what they would make
With this fun little heart
Didn't want it back just wanted them to have fun with it.

I had two responses.

One From 



One From





As you can see they conspired together
To make me a gift
That they sent back to me.

Their post about this made my eyes cry out all the tears.
They were so very sweet to me..

Such a cute set of Ornaments I now have



I had my lil lucky dog put down this past year
Man it was hard on me
And I got a new lovely Named Chuck
To come live with Bentley and I

The is one of the sweetest , personal gifts I have ever received
It really touched my heart
And I love these two ladies Lots!!

Shirley sent me a pile of goodies to go with it



And I also made a item with the little heart

I made a credit card holder


Even know I have no credit cards.


I think I will use it for my grandies pictures.
What do your think??

I had fun with my little hearts
and seeing the fun my friends had
Priceless!!!

Deb and Shirley
Thanks from the bottom of my heart.
I love you both

Happy Crafting
DeeDee
