Welcome to the Studio

Welcome Luckster Seekers...
Find my Sew Mama Sew giveaway Here

I was just featured on the Handmade Europe Blog's
Open studios feature...

Here's a recap

In the Wonderful Words of Lewis Carroll...
"But I don't want to go amongst Mad people..."
"Oh you can't help that dear..We're all Mad here"

Today I invite you in for a cup of tea
and a tour through my Madness...

I grew up in my mothers craft room so it was inevitable that I would create my own wherever I could. I'm afraid Guests must make due with an air mattress in the living room as I've convinced the Fhubby (Future Hubby) to create my own wonderland out of our 3rd small bedroom.

This wonderful very large white unit was already in place from our landlord, a few tweaks here and there and it is the perfect place to store all of my many treasures.

Fabrics, buttons, and vintage Oh My!

There is always something on hand to discover, inspire and create
Don't you just Love Beach treasures?!
As we live just 1 block from the beach
I am fortunate to find many useful crafting goodies.

Working hard finishing some custom orders.

A few Lovelies awaiting a new home.

But wait...That's not all
Please take a walk along the beach with me
and through the labyrinth streets of Old Palma

Here you will sometimes find me in
my new Studio Space

A place to get messy
covered in plaster, clay and paint
a place to dream

My wonderful Art Teacher and Etsy Seller
Laurie Ann Pearsall
is graciously sharing her amazing space.
I'm slowly moving in...

The light is perfectly romantic
and I found this amazing storage shelf at the local thrift.

Just a few of my favorite things
Rusty bits and old books , a new project on the go
and my most precious thrift Find.
Fhubby is currently getting me a new strap
so she'll be ready to roll any day now!

Thank you for joining me in my mad little world,
Isn't it fun to be a bit crazy

Crazy for Handmade that is!
