My Creative Space...

Is tidy! No thanks to that certain someone who will undoubtedly mess it up again. If I catch the infamous culprit that everyone seems to have trouble with, you can be sure I'll let you all know.
Did you spot the bambi on my noticeboard? He is my first attempt at felting. Have you tried felting? It's a pretty cool craft that my friend taught me how to do. And the two bits of fabric behind it are my daughters first attempts at sewing on her own little machine. I plan to get the pink one framed.

More creative people creating here.

It looks fab.
Are those boxes from WH Smith? I have some exactly the same and their size is so useful.


Very pretty space.

Steph said...

I love your creative space!!! It's gorgeous! And that bambi is lovely...is felting tricky? Your little one must be very proud of her work :)

Bird Bath said...

That little Bambi sure looks cute. It would look nice framed too. I've tried some very basic felting and it was great fun - must squeeze some in again soon.

Jennie said...

I spotted it! I've never had a go at that before - it looks gorgeous!

Your creative space is gorgeous too!

Leah said...

Love the felting...so neat and so is your space! Hate to show you mine :(

Suzy's Vintage Attic said...

Your creative space looks bright and airy. I am still working on mine...I too have some of those spotty boxes, very practical and pretty at the same time.

Warm wishes

That is a lovely space, which I wish mine looked a lot more like. I have a mysterious mess-maker in my house as well.

That little Bambi is adorable. Lucky you to have a friend to teach you.

It looks so lovely and cute!

Kate said...

I've done a bit of felting in my creative space this week too. Yours seems to have worked a bit better though. Gorgeous!

Tania said...

Not only TIDY, but enviably co-ordinated! I'm fairly sure some of those spotty boxes would be fabulous for getting the creative thing to flow...

m.e (Cathie) said...

Thanks for your comment on my creative space - yours makes me green with envy (or pink with polka dots) ;o) I've just read your ABOUT ME and it's also ABOUT ME so am now following you. Just off to explore the polka dot swap! Lucy xox

Darn it - too slow... I'll keep an eye out for your next one :o)

VintageVicki said...

I guess the tidyup fairy has been delayed due the ash cloud? My sewing space is still a mess - another thing for the to-do list!!

missi mu said...

Your creative space looks inspiring, and bambi is just too divine for words!

Jill and Michelle said...

I take it your daughter's sewing machine is the pink one on the top shelf?? Great idea!

Melinda said...

What a great space - so light and pretty. I am also slightly obsessed with polka dots so I am very envious of those cute boxes :)

Wow, what a clean and ordered workspace! Looks like you did a pretty good job on your first felting attempt.

daisy daydreams said...

It looks fab, but if its anything like my crafting space, you wont be able to find things in the next few days - I struggled to find the keyboard this morning. Mmmm, maybe a tidy up here is in order.....x

running thread said...

What an inspiring space and I love your felting. That's on my list of crafty things to try. Nice work!

Kylie said...

I have not tried felting yet - is it the needle felting kind - it looks interesting.

Cotton Kiwi said...

That bambi looks great. I bought a felting kit from the Itchy Fingers stall at our last market but haven't got it out yet to try (too many other projects on the go!) There are some great cheap frames going at the Warehouse at the moment that I've been using to frame Maddy's art.

It looks so purty! I wouldn't want to mess it up. Lisa
