Post Craft Show - Where I Create

It's been almost three months since the Craft Show... wow, it's amazing how clean the sewing room is now!  I finished several projects and had some time to straighten... um, I'm a little ADHD in the sewing room.  My husband usually comes downstairs and makes a kaboom sound like a bomb went off.   

I leave projects in mid-stream to start others... I drop scraps on the floor.  Serious disarray.  
 But, now it looks great.  I took a few photos as proof.  It won't last long... I'm not that organized - no matter how hard I try!  And all of the counter space just gets filled with more stuff!

If you've ever read the magazine Where Women Create (it's full of beautiful creative spaces for really talented people...) I feel lucky to have such a large space to fill with fabrics and notions and create anything I want.  Maybe a few of my more organized friends can give me some pointers and help make the final adjustments to the space to keep it from getting really messy.

Organized thread looks like a rainbow

Counter space!

The great wall - full of inspiration

I love my studio.  It's one of my favorite places.  I get to hang out, listen to music and get creative.  I'm my own boss in my studio.  I listen to my heart and create whatever I want. 

I hope you enjoyed a little peek at the studio.  I welcome any tips on organization.

Craft Show Success - Thank you!

My 3rd Craft Show appearance went really, really well.  
So many friends and family came to support me, thank you!  

I received many compliments and many people came to just look at the booth.  And plenty  bought things as well, whew!  There were a few hours I wasn't sure I was going to make it!

Early set up

So much stuff... I made all of it!

I have really changed my "product line" since the 1st craft show... no elf hats this year! zipper pouches, pins, large totes otherwise all new stuff:  pumpkins, acorns, owls, pillows, leaves...

I've already signed up for the show next year so expect bigger and better things!!
