I know that you are wondering what the studio look like. Well, I recentlyÂ moved the studio into it’s own room and here it is; a few camera shots of the true studio (well, minus all the projects that normally sit out on the counters!)
The yarn bin was made out of old coffee cans. It works quite well. The dolls were given to me when I was little by my Dad. Underneath this is my cutting and packaging center.
Â The blue trays work well as organizers for all of the tiny pieces I put on gift tags and cards.
Â The sewing center is full of fabric organized by color. These are the cozy fabrics. The larger pieces are in a big 50 gallon plastic bin. Â My studio doubles as our guest room so you don’t see the futon on the opposite wall, nor do you see the computer station on DH’s computer desk. These photos were taken by OldHound.etsy.com. He is our oldest son, he also painted the large painting of the cat you see in one of the photos.
I have been working incredibly hardÂ all week. The items shown are the tip of the iceberg and I hope to bring more to the store daily. Please check back in and see what else is new. Listing new items and creating them are often vying for my time. I find that I usually have far more items created than listed! I have been on a very creative binge this week. New ideas are flowing and it is difficult to stop at night. So I am off to the studio to do more work. (I have a studio now and will show pictures very soon as the Â photographer that lives at my house has agreed to take them today. If I can get it cleaned up again!) As always feel free to contact me if you want something that I have already sold or need something custom.
Â New Gift tags in time for the holidays or birthdays!

I am having a close out sale on my scarves, hats and shawls. After taking inventory yesterday I realized that I have several scarves that are not listed. Since I am no longer going to be carrying hand crocheted or knitted items, it is time to clear them out of my shop. Here are several that IÂ no longer have listed with Etsy that I am ready to sell. Just e-mail me or contact me via facebook and I will be glad to sell these to you.
Each scarf $5 each plus three dollars shipping! Paid via paypal. Just e-mail to make sure that theyÂ are still available. Personal friends in town, just let me knowÂ and we will meet somewhere!
Thanks so much,
