Ready..Set...Craft!


I've been working on my craft room or my "studio", whatever you'd like to call it. I call it my craft room :) I don't know about you, but I can't work in a mess. Everything has to be tidy and put in it's place before I can begin or get my head cleared enough to just focus on creating something.

I love this room. I've lined the walls with bookcases and can spread all my goodies out and organize how I want things. They sort of stare you in the face too! It's very colorful and makes me feel like I have my own craft store. LOL! I'm a "collector". I might not do anything with some craft supply for years, but darn it - I gotta have it!

The paint is sort of a Tuscan yellow color; very warm and inviting. I've tossed in splashes of red and black also, and then outlined the window with little white and orange lights that I turn on at night to give a lovely glow to the room.

Even though I'm still busy in school, it's not nearly as demanding as it has been so I want to be ready to start making stuff when the urge hits! LOL!

Speaking of urges, I'm going to be taking a jewelry class at the end of August as I'd been wanting to learn for some time, and I thought I might incorporate some items into my store, or maybe do a separate selling blog. Not sure yet. I've got some visions of Fall-type jewelry, but don't know how to make them. I've heard it's pretty easy once you know how, so I'm really excited to get going!

Hey Con - yes - you should definitely pack it up and move up yonder!
I WOULD NOT puke! OMG! Trust me - my house is an explosion!
The jewelry class is basic stringing and making knots and stuff. I want to do some fancy-schmancy charm bracelets and stuff and need to learn how to attach things, etc... sort of the order of how you do stuff. We'll see!!!!
