Just a few things I've been working on.....

I just finished this shabby cottage style desk set....a letter try and standing organizer for mail, CDs, bills, or other whatnots. I painted them with three coats of Country White paint and then shabbied them up with sandpaper. The inside of the letter tray is lined with pretty pink floral paper. These items are sold separately in the Organize Your Home category on my website.


I've also been working on this handbag/tote for the new Cottage Heirlooms category on my website. It is crafted from a repurposed quilted pillow sham and lined with a repurposed quilted rosebud pattern bedspread. I used the "ragged" technique and it is soooo soft and cushy now!!!

This isn't all I've been working on though.....I'm finally going to have a own place for bringing to life all of the ideas I have running around in my head right now! I'm painting and furnishing my studio so that it will a very nurturing space for my creations......and also a very organized space. No more paint/paper/sewing machine on the dining room table for this girl....yea! I'll have pictures of the completed project for my Show and Tell post in a few weeks though.

Have a wonderful week!

Hi Debbie! I'm so excited for you over your new studio! Is it in your home or somewhere separate? It's so nice to have a studio that is just for creating in. I love the desk set and the quilted bag is adorable! You are such a busy bee! Thanks for the Show & Tell! I'm still working on finishing mine so I can post pics!

I envy your conviction to be organized. I have an regular office room in my house plus a work room, plus a garage, plus a room off the back porch and each of those spaces looks like I am running an illegal sweat shop. I just get myself all organized and neat in each area and then I start working on 4 projects at once. I probably have ADD. Oh well, my family has gotten used to it. It's really bad when it starts to also take over the kitchen counters and kitchen table and the family has to stand over the sink to eat.

Please post pics of your work area when you get it ready.
