Peeking In

Kane observing nature through the patio door and feeling the warmth of the furnace.
This is his morning spot.

A surprise package from Mary. She makes the best vintage beaded ornaments. Love it. Last year she made me gorgeous pink beaded ornaments.

Some pink love birds ready for Valentine's Day listing in my shop.
Yes, I will wait until after Christmas to list them!

Now to the recently cleaned up and half way organized craft studio! LOL since I have taken these pictures I have already changed some things up. I'll post them again another day. I found 3 baby planters from the 80's and am using them for storage.

My sister bought this Album at the local church thrift shop for me. She loves me!

Greenbeanbaby purchase from a year or so ago is the framed picture of her cut paper piecing.

Flossie the framed picture in the upper right hand corner was purchased from Jenny at EverydayisaHoliday last year. Love, Love, Love! My inspiration board is getting full!

Not the best picture with the sun streaming in but you can see all my glass containers. They are filled with beautiful beads, flowers, and other goodies!

The 'messiest' storage in the room. I keep all of my chipboard in these roll out bins. The sewing machine is in the bottom bin. That hasn't gotten a lot of use. I prefer to work with paper, yarn, glitter, and glue.
Some yarn, some felt, and hiding some rolls of corrugated cardboard beside the cabinet.

Pretty pinks and reds displayed above the cabinet.

A cupcake plaque purchased from etsy.

The cabinet doors opened to expose the supplies inside: ribbons, threads, vintage trims, crepe paper, tulle, and a tin full of embroidery threads.

Up close with the pretties in the glass jars!

More prettiness.

The other album my sis purchased for me from the church thrift store. She really, really does love me! Honest.
Some projects yet to be started or finished: A wicked Halloween picture, garland, Christmas yarn ball wreath, a vintage magazine holder.

I cannot wait to see the finished project from these yarn balls. I might add some pink pom poms.

Aqua, Red, and White LOVE! Where's the pink?

I finished up the Christmas wrapping of the gifts tonight.
Need to double check my lists and see if more gifts are needed..Crossing fingers that I am done.

Snow and/or ice tonight.
Be safe and warm.

Julie! I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this peek inside your creative space! It's so YOU! May I put in an order for 12 Valentine birds? I love my blue ones so much, they are now residing in a glass canister in my craft room. Their faces just make me smile!

You have been such a wonderful inspiration to me this year Julie. I am blessed to know you through your blog, and I look forward to you creative projects in the coming New Year.

Merry Christmas! Elizabeth
