Where Bloggers Create Party!



Glad you could join us! It's my first time to participate in this blog party. Thanks to KAREN of DESERT COTTAGE for hosting! (Please click on these photos to enlarge.Thanks.)
Here's a photo showing the room with it's plain yellow walls and blue trims to match the air hockey table. How cute is my niece's baby~Jordan Paige playing with my nephew Patrick!






My craft room isn't big, so I designed each corner of the room with some sort of a theme or a designated purpose. This corner to the left by the entrance door is a little "glam" display.  Ooh la la! That's a wrought iron vintage dress form decal on the wall, I put  a couple of nails by the neck of the " manequin" and hang my pearl necklaces from it. It's a 3D effect, which is cool. I hang my pictures on the louvers, added a touch of fabric and a crown hook, hang more chain necklaces and put some inspirational words to live by, and I'm good to go!

My family is very important to me, and it shows because I love to decorated with pictures. These collages are very memorable to me, and I found a perfect corner to display them, just behind my chair, right across my desk area.

Here's the corner as soon as you enter on your right, with my baskets filled with yummieson top of shelves I bought from yard sale. I put burlap material on top of the air hockey table for protection from scratches and dusts.


A close up my great yard sale finds---shelves and baskets for displays and supplies, and jars for buttons, I love Lucy lunch pail, old milk jug for coins,  etc.  Plastic containers ( from friends) help me organize my tons and tons of paper. That cream jewelry box (on the right) was a steal for $5 bucks at a yard sale; almost new.




Well, I hope you enjoyed my "open house" tour of my craft room. I would love a little feed back from you. Hope you come back and visit me again soon. I love posting my projects when I get the chance. In the meantime, go and mingle and meet new friends from this wonderful Blogland! Take care!
Note: Please email me your comment if it won't post. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I love your use of color, and the idea of making each section of the room a separate theme. What a great 3D look on the dress form, especially because it is jewelry! I knew a lady that decorated her daughters room with birds and flowers and used the front part of little bird houses throughout the trim around the room. Adding that 3D look makes the decor just pop. Thanks for sharing your space. It's wonderful.

The yellow corner is stunning, but what I really love is the desk space with all of the different prints. Is it wallpaper?

You have a really good eye and a very confident in your mix of pattern and color.
