tiny haul

dog bed

 Little Riki needed a new bed!  He is growing up and I am sick of looking at his pink bed.
Using instructions from the Internet, I cut a circle then a long tube.  I also cut two layers of cotton batting.

 Made a sandwich and serged right sides together.  It got a little scary towards the end.  My serger likes to eat projects when I get nervous.  I jammed it and bent the needles or it probably would have been bad.  Left a small section open for stuffing.  Used the silk from a pillow I ordered when having bad allergies.  It was too fluffy for me but perfect for Riki!

 He loves his new bed and hopped in every time I put it down while making it.  I had a matching throw from a previous project so he is ready for winter.

craft closet

 My husband is not a small man, he had to contort a little to paint!

 Paper wall.

 Paper hamper.  Top collage, bottom tissue and napkins.

I moved my desk and even more supplies to the dining room.  I am embarrassed to say this is just my storage area.  I have even more crap in there.  Stuff I use every day.  My sweetie is going to build me a sewing table to keep in here.  We bought a cool base at a flea market a few months back.

 Sewing hamper.

 Entire hamper full of gelli printing supplies!  This does not even include my stencils.

I think I'm going to leave the doors off while we live here.  I much prefer looking at my stuff.
I have paper rolls in the top right skinny hamper.  You know, wax paper, deli paper, craft paper, freezer we really need all those different kinds of paper??  YES!

I had the great idea to store my pressed flowers under some of my mosaic supplies.  Freed up a lot of space in the closet and gave me something heavy to place on top.  They are also easier to access.  Once dried I put them on chinette paper plates and stack.
Finally have my craft hoard organized!  Much rather look at this than piles of crap everywhere.  The pictures tell the story.  Hope it gives you guys some ideas for storage.

This is my 1000 post!  I've had this blog for a while and some times think I'm the only one that reads it, but that is okay with me.

I'm always telling my husband that I don't do enough art.  I guess this blog proves me wrong.

Thanks to my 30 loyal followers!  

No NO iron on transfer!

 This is what NOT to do with your iron on transfer!  OH NO, so glad I used my craft iron.

Did some more work on sugar skully.
