Where Bloggers Create Blog Party


Welcome to 'Where Bloggers Create Blog Party' and my small corner of the world.

I make miniature bears for a living and in my spare time I do all sorts of other crafts like cross stitch, embroidery, tatting and if I still have time I do some drawing.

I used to have a room just for my workroom and was very spoilt with all the space. Of course it was never tidy but I could always find things when I needed them.
When I moved to London I could only bring what would fit in my suitcase and it was with very sad hearts that Wendy (my Mom) and I put the rest in storage.

My work area is now the corner of my room but I think it is working well, everything is generally tidy, of course what you won't see in these photos is the stuff that got piled on the bed to make this look nice.

My computer desk doubles as my work table, my fabric is stored in boxes on the bookcase. My little chair is one that I found thrown out by someone else.

The stuffing for the bears is kept in the corner.
I have my favourite bears and other animals sitting watching me work.

The shelf above my computer is used for storage and a bit of an inspiration corner.
A couple of my bears waiting to be sent to new homes.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit and the look at my creative space. It is small but I have so much fun working here and it has shown me that you don't need a big amount of space to be creative.

Hello
Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting my studio, and your kind words. Your bears are so darling. I love small bears...did you notice the old ones I have by the sewing machine? Love the little guys, I used to make them in the 80s--full size jointed and dressed...lots of fun.
Have a great day
Blessings
Rebecca

nice place! I fully agree with you : you can create everywhere... I think the most important is to like the place where you work.

You've got everything you need to do what you love to do and you bears are so well made! Thanks for sharing your creative space and i hope you are enjoying the blog party.

Claudia said...

What sweet bears you make! I love your space and the way it works for you. I also have a small space - anything can be made to work if you want to create badly enough - and you do! Great job!

Well you know a corner is all you need to be creative. And there is nothing better then getting someone else's throw away for free. Come on over and visit my studio at:

I am so impressed with your bears I can't stand it!! They are to cute!! I used to know a woman who used old fur coats and wraps for her bears. Do you ever do that?? Thank you so much for coming to my party. You have really helped make it a great success!

Oh, my goodness gracious... I love your wee bears! What a talent you are. I understand how you must feel being separated from your beloved tools; I experienced a similar situation in my recent past and was away from many of my supplies for approx. 1 year. It will be such a happy reunion, Darling! I hope with all my heart the day arrives soon for you. What a beautifully creative space you live in! It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance at this lovely event; please do stop by for a visit soon!

Enjoy the party!

Warm Wishes,

Natasha

Megan, The space doesn't matter as long as it's "yours". :0) Your bears are just too precious!! simply adorable...So how long will you be in London? I know it's hard having your stuff in storage..I've just recently got all of my stuff out of storage after a year.

Please drop by my blog to see my "studio on progress". I just recently moved into our home and have been remodeling for almost three months..it's almost done. (I think!) :0)

See ya,
Stephanie
