This lovely lady is a stay at home mom with a passion for knitting, felting, sewing, quilting, fabric, and drawing. So take a look at her lovely space and head on over to her blog and show her some love...

My Studio

 I feel very blessed to have a little room all to myself, although I am not alone in there very often. It is very much a work in progress and is always changing as I shift things around, discover what works and what doesn't, and find creative solutions for storing my supplies. The photos here will change, as does my space.

You can see all the photos I take of my room here -- these are a few of my favorites...
Come on in...
Small smaple of my fabric stash ... 
Spools and spools of yumm thread ..
Some books for inspiration :)
Can you tell I love crates? Holding more fabric of course!
My handmade dollhouses

My studio is a full-on working studio, not just a pretty room. It has to hold all the mounds of materials -- fabrics, felt, pillow inserts, buttons, threads, batting, yarn, needles, the packaging stuff, the boxes, future projects, everything I need to run this little growing business. As such, it gets so overrun with stuff that it is hard to actually work in it. I would love to have curtains, and pictures, and artwork, and all this extra decoration that would make my space look cute and perfect. But for now, I want as little as possible because it gets so cluttered with the necessaries as it is. With this new addition of these pretty-to-me old, wooden crates, my old shelf is very happy, much less cluttered, and I've never been so happy with my little space!  Love love love. Never want to leave. 

And now, time to sew!!!
Maureen, thank you so much for sharing your space and your lovely creations. We love the re-purposed crates and the feel of your sewing room. You truly have earned the title of Maureen Handmade :)
