My New Hobby Space

There's is were I've been hiding out since last winter and spring. I divided my living room in half to create this simple yet comfortable hobby space. My very close friend who is a retired carpenter has been so kind to me to build it for me. The materials bought were very reasonable at Home Depot. I helped him along the way...I did the all the painting. I already had some of my own furniture that I added in my hobby space. I so adore my own personal space.

Below you will find how I created most of my own storage containers using what I already had.

With only a few supplies such as decorative paper, glue, cut out flowers, stick on flat jewels and beads, flowers, and some ribbon I made a "blah" plain ole Lipton Ice Tea container, coffee cans, cigar boxes etc into the most eye catching pretty storage containers and boxes.

Who knew you can upscale a peanut butter jar and Mayonaise jar into a handy storage container.

I covered this can with this pretty contact paper I found hidden in a stack of other contact papers and bought the last two. I really like this contact paper and I added regular decorative paper for more contrast.

Well! What are you waiting for lets get crafting and create your unique storage containers.

I hope you you enjoyed this post, thank you for stopping by.

Clothes Pin Dolls

It took me about 6 days to make ten clothes pin dolls which includes sanding the heads, the pins, and the base.

Most of the time went on painting the entire pin with flesh colors, the features, the hair, and the shoes.

It was really simple, the only hand sewing I did was the gathering around the skirt waist the rest of the clothes are glued.

These lovely clothes pin dolls will be put in paper machet boxes that is a WIP I will cleverly make them into room boxes designed to look like a shop or sitting room or bedroom.

Polymer Clay Doll Charms

I am dabbling in polymer clay. These are the first of four that I made to begin with. I am a beginner so you'll see some rough edges as I am learning to polish my skills...IT ISN'T EASY, WHEW! 

I want to get more polished as I go along. I want to make this part of my crafts also as miniature becomes more of my passion. I will also be making polymer clay food also. I hope you like it.

This is my version of Alice In Wonderland.

Thank you for stopping by.
