In the smallest room in our house you will find a magical place where faeries fly in and out of the windows. Where magic happens when paper and paint are around. Whether I am sowing, painting or gluing this room makes me feel as though I'm ensconced in a enchanted land.

 It is where I find my BLISS

Where I create ART.

It is my piece of HEAVEN.
It's where I spend hours with scrumptious  scraps of ribbon.
Where I artfully find a use
for the old jars from antique shops.

Where a square of felt becomes a beautiful

Where scraps of paper become a story.
Where I WISH and DREAM. 
Where I can make a mess and no one CARES.

Where I make  faeries with fanciful wings.

And tins with SECRETS inside.
Where my dogs come to sleep while I PLAY.
I have wanted a craft room all my life and when we moved it was the first thing on the list, I didn't care if the house had a big garden or a fireplace I just asked that there would be a ROOM for me to craft.

And thankfully I now have it.

Thank you for coming to look at my space, it's not big but it's mine. ~Wendy~                        You won't believe this yesterday in the mist of where blogger's create. My wonderful husband asked me if I wanted to go to Ikea for legs for a glass table top that has been in the garage for months. I knew it would make a wonderful craft table as it is a lot wider and as it is glass even I can't damage the surface of a glass table. So I jumped at the chance to get a new craft table. My room looks even better now I have much more room to spread out... so in light of my new table 
I 'm posting some more photos and for those who wanted to see more of my room. Here they are......

Wendy, I just love hearing the joy come from when you talk about your studio. I can so relate. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have a place to go when I am inspired to create something. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. I hope you have a wonderful time at the party.

The hand holding the sign in the top photo is so lovely and inspiring. I would, like you, lose myself in the beauty of this studio, where only you have to worry about cleaning it up. Thanks for inviting me to share pictures of your really colorful space.

Cathee said...

Melly said...

Hi Wendy, thank you so much for visiting with me I do hope you will come again. Your space is beautiful I especially love the tree painted on your wall, gorgeous. I can see why fairies would gather there with you as you create your beautiful art.
Have a lovely weekend!

Karin said...

Hi Wendy! You have a great room! Wonderful creations!!

Penny said...

You have created a very magical Studio. Charming & whimsical two traits I dearly love. My craft room has a dryad tree in it - and is a place for fairies to dance.

craftyles said...

Love your enthusiasm. Your space is really nice. I agree-everyone need to have their own space! Thanks for the tour.

Hi Wendy,

I love those fairy children!! I just adore them but haven't made any yet. I do agree with what you said when you were looking at houses....We must have our private creative space...it really does make a difference. Yours is lovely and I can feel through your words how much it means to you.

It's such a pleasure to be back for the party again this year and visiting all of the wonderful creative souls and their creative space. Thank you for sharing yours with me.

Thank you for visiting with me and strolling through my studio..it's been a labor of love to put together and now after a year in our home I feel like I can "spread my wings" and fly!

Have a wonderful day,
Stephanie ♥

I agree with you, we don't care about the fireplace or garden, but the craft room is a MUST HAVE, beautiful space! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for becoming a follower of City Crafter Challenge Blog (www.citycrafter.blogspot.com), hope to see your creation here someday soon!

Hi Wendy,

Must have fairy dust flowing!! :0)

Here's the link to the script for it.


If this page doesn't pop up the "Let It SNOW" script then look in the left hand menu towards the bottom and click on "Graphic Effects" and select "Let It Snow"

You will copy and paste this code into your template html section.

If you are nervous about messing with the html section the lady that recoded my template for me would do this for you..She's Susie at 1st Floor Flat..

Let me know if I can guide you as to where to place the code if you are comfortable to go into your html.

I keep test blogs so I can play with code til I get it correct then I apply to my main blog.

Oh, and you can also set the Color of the snow, the number of flakes that are falling and the speed. It's the best script for this that I've run across.

Let me know if I can help you more with it....
Stephanie ♥

Thank you for stopping by my blog and for the nice comments, so glad you did as this way I found your space and I got to see it : ) Thats such a neat space for creating, I like how you have put your own creations on the wall by the window (the small painting). And hanging the small cards is cute idea too.

Hi Wendy, thank you for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower! I just finished drooling over your studio, I love EVERYTHING :D So organized too! Well, and your furry companions,who can create without them along side of us? Not me, that is for sure. I have also become a follower of your blog. So you were just published, wow, congratulations!! I also write about nature but only one small thing published so far in one of my professor's books. I just write because I love to/have to and want to inform people...anyway babbled on enough for now. I will be over later for coffee or tea, which ever you are making is fine for me:D
Ciao for now,
