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

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..
