I've linked to any artists/crafters that I've mentioned has made something and also there are a few links to things I've made. All piccies are clickable to enlarge for a virtual rummage.
Yes, my work area's I do try and keep this tidy just because I have come to the realisation that when it's messy I don't create. Believe me, it doesn't come naturally - the rest of the house does not follow the same rules.
Well, there you go. Well done if you made it this far and thanks for stopping by :)
My corner of the dining room. You can see why I have to try and keep tidy in here. That dinner table has to be pulled out every night. Space is a premium.
|The football is mean old Mum commandeering it when it got to close to the TV one to many times.|
Birdie corner on top of my shelves. The wire pigeon is made by Sparkflight and modelled on one of the pigeons Craig used to own. The felted birdies are by Felt Me Up Designs. I was lucky enough to win the owl in one of her giveaways but bought the budgie for Craig one Christmas :) I hope to add a crow to our flock when I get a bit better on the sewing machine, there is a pattern for one in the Artful Bird book.
|Art above my desk. Am finally getting around to framing stuff. L - Charlie & Lola collage I made featuring Ruby. Middle - Box I made at a Jane Dean workshop. R - Painting done by Ruby which I love. Bottom is a motivational zombie ACEO bought from Little Black Heart. It's in the frame Susie gave me for Christmas as part of the Secret Santa swap last year.|
The picture on the end is one I love of my Mum on her wedding day... and I'm in her tummy :)
Next we go outside...
|This is taken from the door of the workshop. This is my teeny tiny messy room/art studio that Craig 'made' for me. It's sandwiched between his Bird Room/aviary and office. It's 6' long - the length of the desk and I love it. The bike and hoover get chucked out the door into the garden when I'm in there ;)|
The white hanging holder on the wall has my watercolours/watercolour crayons and gouache. The blue tote on the desk holds all my acrylic paints.
|The wooden box on my desk I turned on it's side to use as a shelf. It now holds canvasses and stuff that I've been prepping for backgrounds. The framed Bette Davis ACEO is by Donna and I love it, wanted it where I could always see it. The zombie ATC and the arch are by Mark when we swapped ATC's. (Well, he swapped, I messed his up and am re-doing!) The red lady is by Amy as are Maude & Marvin in the picture below :)|
|The crow lady is by Cameron, love her and the words on it! The piece on the bottom right is by Kay - also love the words on that :) I have a load more lovely cards and tags and things that other people have made but I want to get a pin board out here and some more frames so they are safely tucked away for now.|
