my creative space...

hands up if you have a little bit of a voyeuristic nature? that's it Anita hold up two hands :) the lovely Rebecca of edward and lilly holds a ~my creative space~ post each week and i wait with baited breath to see what lovely neat space she has on offer. i decided to show you my creative space after i cut out the items i will be sending off in my 'pay it forward' parcels.
here we have 3 mini babushkas, 3 scented birds and 3 sweet hearts waiting to be stitched. they are arranged neatly on my ironing board. (eeekkkk ignore my extremely dull ironing board cover!)
i find it so much easier to do all of my cutting out at night when crazy cat clauds is in bed, that way i can stitch during the day when she isn't annoying me :) the photo below shows the real creative space and the reason why i do all of this at night when she is asleep.
click on this to make it larger and get a better feel for the creative process. i do actually have a nicer space than this to store all of my gorgeous fabrics and crafts but there really isn't a table in there. i have ordered mister moo to go out tomorrow and buy me a simple card table that i can fold out anywhere i wish. perhaps the osteoporosis that is happening in my knees will ease if i don't kneel on them for hours on end!
anyhow head of to edward and lilly, you wont be disappointed.
very tired now not sure i have even made sense.
mmmwwaahh goodnight rosey

I love when people show where they work. It's voyeuristic..but also pratical in that you never know when you'll find a great idea from someone else's workspace.

Hi Rosey, how on earth do you mangae to cut out on the floor!! I wouldn't be able to get up for one thing!
I hope you do get a nice card table or Bunnings has resin ones for $60 which might be a bit pricey but they are big enough to use as dining tables and the are flat and washable and very sturdy. Sometimes card tables have that foam top so you might need Mr Moo to cut a light wooden one for you.....I am sure it be wonderful, make sure to post about it! Kiss Noises ( now I am not making sense) Linda

Well nice to see someone elses craft space is such as mine.
I do want to invest in one of those tresels that fold in half with a handle though.
So i can use it for markets too.
And at $60 not bad,But need to sell some more cuppies to fund one! lol!
You using the ironong board is good,I used to use one for doing Acrylic nails

I always love peeking into someone else's creative space, and I love yours!! I always get frustated when the space is so organized and everything's in its place like nobody's using it. Yours look very human, and I know how messy (but good :)) it is when we craft!

We all have different work spaces and it really doesn't matter what size it is as long as it works for you. I hope th eaddition of a work bench/table makes it easier for you.
