I took a class at the beginning of this year with Danita's art i had the best time working on the dolls.
I don't often keep my work but i needed to keep this one. I did make a couple extra to sell.

This is where i take all my photo's for my bears etc.

I love to make paper tag bunting.

I love vintage lace, Buttons, gloves, baby booties and pearls.

I Love your Beautiful Creative Space, the Sepia Hues of it, the Collections, and your Art... it's all so filled with Inspiration that I thoroughly Enjoyed the Grand Tour. Thank you for Inviting us in to behold it all. I see that you too find how handy and visually Appealing it is to use an old bottle drying rack to hold our spools. I will probably be up most of the Night now visiting everyone's Studios! *winks*

What a great creative space! I love that fabric book and would like to try one myself soon. I think I am a bit intimidated and am not really sure where to start, but I'm sure once I get going it will take off. Love your nurse doll. I can see why you wanted to keep this one. It is just beautiful.

Pam said...

It really is a beautiful space Lisa. You've done something very special with it, and I'm not surprised you like to lock yourself in there so often! :) Can't imagine why you'd want to leave it to come over to mine for craft day on Wednesdays! lol. ♥

I am completely blown aways. Beautiful studio, awesome stuff. Love the glass top sewing table. Of course, I love almost all of it. It just radiates the love and attention to detail that went into it. And your dolls and teddy bears are so adorable. I am not really a doll person, but I am coveting the nurse doll. She is truly beautiful. Thanks for allowing me to look at your studio.

Nancy Reinke said...

Thank you for the tour of your studio, Lisa. It's so beautiful -- like a boutique. I love all your collections, your French cupboard, sewing machine table, the window shelf, all your wonderful creations, just everything. I could spend all my days in such a lovely space. So glad I found you at Karen's party, and now I'm a happy follower. ~ Nancy @ A Joyful Cottage
