Where Bloggers Create

Welcome to the 3rd year of 
Where Bloggers
Started by Karen Valentine our wonderful hostess of this Party.
The list of participants are on the side bar when you visit her blog.

Choice A) Scroll through the pics, leave comment,
and move on to the next blog.
Choice B) Linger a bit, look at the pics, read what I have written to describe the
changes in the room, leave a comment and move on.
Choice C) Click on the link to last years post and 
slide show. You'll actually see not much has changed.
Leave a comment and move on.
Choice D) Look and Leave 
Hey ! It's good to have choices.
So hold on to your hats 
because there has been some big 
changes in the ol' Art room....
 Let's start with Wire heart photo holder that doesn't have any photos
 I've decided to use it to hang my Charm swaps from it.
It used to be at the other end of the room
Stamp holder was made by my Dad for my Mom
to hold her craft paints.
I like it for my Stamps
 Ribbon change really.
They just have more ribbon in them.
 Deb's art work that was gifted to me was on the opposite wall. 
I decided it should be here on the shelf where the mannequin doll was.
I know...right.....big changes...
 This shelf was half way down on the cork bulletin board
 Not any it's over here.
 Plastic Drawers were on the adjacent wall.
Now there are where I can access them easily. 
And the green boxes moved here 
from their previous places.
I warned you....big changes! ;)
 I took down my framed grape illustrations. 
And picked up one 
more closet maid cubical and cloth bin.
 I like to hang the tags I received 
from tag swaps on them.
 Did I have those tassels on the Pie cupboard last year? 
Not sure. 
 See green shelf.
I think it was a good move.
 Here is where the Mannequin ended up along 
with the altered Sisterhood box and the chach-kies
that was on the green shelf.
 Just an over all view
 And this Spinning organizer was moved off the work table
 to where I could better access it.
 Over all view of the work space. 
This is actually the biggest change..
usually there is a ton of supplies 
and projects to be worked on.
So much so I can't even see the table.
Thank Goodness for Where Bloggers Create! 
At least once a year I make an attempt 
to get  more organized!
Thanks for Looking.
Hope you have fun checking out 
other creative spaces!

Your creative space is wonderful! I love your heart photo holder. I have on that is similar and I hang all my favorite necklaces from. It works great! Thanks for sharing all your pretty pictures.

Tina said...

very cool space - this is my first time playing and I think I shared a bit too much - but at least visiting all you seasoned bloggers and all your spaces makes me want to re-organize and clean up

well - if you have time visit my blog and see my clutter

have a great weekend

ANULAL said...

Tia Terri, I do not want to participate in the party. I may not be able to make it to the US, so soon. ;) But I would like to leave this comment.I loved these pictures. I don't want to call them 'super cool'. Because 'super cool' simply means 'super cool'. These picture are beyond that. Aha!! My personal favourite? guess which. ;)

Lori said...

Hi Terri,
Your room is very nice! I laughed when I read how you made such "big" changes. So did I! LOL! I move something a few feet from where it was and then move something else to that spot, etc. It all depends on my mood and how I want to access it. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, A Scrapmom's Musings.

I love the cozy feel of your room. The palm tree walls are a nice look. Yes, it is so great to have the WBC party to help get us back in order. It was so nice to visit today. Thanks for sharing.

Maggie said...

Loved peeking inside your creative space. I like how you have all the swapped tags and goodies hanging up for inspiration and smiles. This blog tour is taking over my life this weekend...I've only gone down a small portion of the list, then start skipping around...and then I can't remember where I have and haven't been! All so inspiring, though. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the kind comment!


The Feathered Nest said...

I love your studio Terri!!!! So much goodness all around! I think it's so inspiring to display other's artwork around your studio ~ it always makes me smile to see that own something that someone else made. My table stays the same way, filled with pile of goodies and then I end up with a 12" x 12" square to work in!! Thanks so much for stopping by to see my space, hugs and love, Dawn

Deborah said...

Thanks for stopping by and thank you for being drawn to my altered book giveaway, I will have more giveaways so check back now and then. I love your wire heart, I wish I could come across something like that! Your space looks great and after the weather cools down I'm going to take over that family room instead of a nook and crannie for Grannie. Check back next year if Karen holds another one and see what I end up doing, It will probably take me the year! lol. I love everything and isn't it about the fun, so much fun to get creative space ideas! Have a fun and creative week, love it all! Hugs Marilou

Thanks for dropping by my blog!!!
I love your ribbon holder and the wire heart!! Tell me how the charm exchange works?

Char said...

Major items in a space may not change from year to year, but I think we are probably always making our creative places evolve over time. I think your space is very special and I love the way you have your wooden stamps showcased. They are all right there to see and use. Mine are in a box, so I think that is going to change.
Thank you so much for the share, it's all lovely, Char

Jenelle said...

Terri-What a beautiful space! Love your banners! The theatre on top of your bookcase is amazing. Love how you display and store your ribbon stash.
Thanks so much for the tour!
