Creative Space: The beginning

It seems that I am pretty lucky afterall.  Let me explain what I mean.  A week ago I mentioned to my mom that I wanted to buy a dressform.  Most I have seen have been too expensive to buy.  On Saturday morning, we checked out some garage sales.  The second place where we stopped had this dressform on sale for $5.00!!  When I got home, I removed the fabric that was on the dressform and cleaned it up.  A project I want to take on with this dressform is to paint the panels with gesso and giving it some texture. 

So now I have two dressforms. This one is the small wire one that I am working on at the moment.  My son says that now I have two monsters.  That is what he calls them. 

A view of my painting area.

A view of my journaling and blogging area.  I am working in my journals again and still learning some wonderful techniques here.

This old sewing machine is serving some important roles since it does not work.  It adds a bit of color to my room and it just makes me happy. 

The cover of this old sewing machine is where I will keep the journals I am working on at the moment.  I might leave it as is or add some personality to it.

Now that I have moved into my new creative space (and loving it), I will continue sharpening my skills.  I also want to make this for my space.  Thank you for following me on this wonderful creative journey and thank you for your inspiration.
