Now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for! A peak into the world of Missy (me)
first, I’m going to show you how clever I am. This house doesn’t have many places where I could have my “stuff” so we built a wall of shelves dividing the living room and formal dining room in half. I raised the chandelier because Iwas tired of bumping my head on it, and that’s where my creative space is.
Keep your eyes open and you may see something special that you’ve given to me.
some of my Dad’s artwork hang above my fabric cutting/crafting table for inspiration. .
a shoe holder works nicely to hold my sewing notions. scrapbooking papers and accessories are kept in the drawers and basket.
scissors are kept on the cutting table in a ceramic flowerpot that I received when one of my girls were born. colored pencils kept in a mug that my Oma made for me.
pattern boxes are under the table
shelves hold all of my magazines, sewing/crafting books, stamps, some fabric, etc… all of those white binder looking things are magazine folders I got from IKEA. and yes, they are all full of magazines!
binders that hold patterns that I photocopy from my magazines so I can find them easily
books, stamps, fancy cardstock, and top shelf is patterns, etc that are in my SHOP.
vintage sheet fat quarters, some Heather Bailey pop garden fabric, doll clothes patterns, fairydolls
projects I’m working on, ribbons, thread, my pleater, special trinkets, flowers
this smaller shelf holds all kinds of treasures.
lace on the bottom shelf,
boxes of bias tape and tread, buttons,
a basket of toys for the kids to play with when they want to be near me,
all of my paper punches (MIL sayswho needs to to to the storewhen I have so many! )
little trinkets to make into party loot bags…
don’t forget the pail of wrapping paper
everyone needs a bit of magic and a box full of fabric. (hehee! don’t let these pictures full you… I’ve got 10 plastic tubs full of fabric in my garage)
Yes, I DO have a computer next to my sewing machine!
My Oma always hung pictures of her family above her sewing machine. I just love the idea of seeing the ones you love while you are sewing.
this is the view out my window from my desk
NOW FOR A LITTLE ABOUT ME…
I’ve been sewing and crafting all of my life. I come from a long line of creative people. As a kid, my siblings and cousins would take turns spending a week at our Oma and Opa’s house where we would sew and craft and play; I took sewing classes with the local 4H; my mom would have us do all kinds of crafting including painting ceramics, sewing Christmas ornaments and doll clothes, making playdoh and soap.
In High Shool I drew pictures of friends, and After I got married, I sewed maternity clothes and pillows. After I had my first child, I started sewing matching mother/daughter outfuts for us.
Now I do just about everything. I don’t crochet, knit, tat, or cross stitch though so if anyone ever wants to do a trade with me, let me know!!!
I enjoy participating in swaps, and creating heirlooms for babies and children. I’ve made a few very special outfits for special occasions. I’m not too good at sewing for myself though… too many alterations.
thank you for stopping by!
I would love and appreciate it if you’d leave me a comment letting me know what you think!
