A Clearing,A Giveaway,and a Visit.

With a clearing,my need for art..has awakened.As my craft space is slowly getting organized,my table,at one time,full of chaos and clutter,has opened a clearing,allowing me to create.In no way has this journey come to an end,but the gratitude in my heart,is overwhelming.Here are some new ACEO 'S and some photos of my room in progress.






A new work table to sew and play and tons of storage..How did I end up with so much stuff?




This months giveaway is for one of my resin filled tin Necklaces.This little tin measures 1 1/2" x 2 1 /2" and it has been filled with a butterfly image from http://www.etsy.com/shop/LandofEnchantment ,beads and Resin.I also used chain,and rope necklace.The total length of the chains measure 16".To qualify for this Giveaway..all you have to do is leave me a comment,and please link this Giveaway on your blog so I can get the word out!Much appreciated.I will announce the winner on March 31st.




A visit to my sisters in NY.The minute I leave her I start missing her.I really really hate living so far apart.It really stinks Ok!Yucky..Yucky..Why do we all have to live so far apart?Sigh.. I feel better..thanks for letting me vent about that.( : Here are some photos of my visit,her lovely home,and feathery friends!!



Here is My sis,Ingrid.We went for a lovely walk around her neighborhood.




She's A kick butt Glass artist,this is one of her pieces.




The view from her side porch.




Some of her feathery friends.



She has also just recently started making some glass and scrabble tile pendents.I have listed some on my Etsy page,while she sets up her page.She can make custom pieces with custom images and letters.If you are interested,just email her at Meltedglassdreams@gmail.com

Hi Cat....wow this is given me the shivers....I just was at your blog but my computer had a little crash. My hubby just fixed it (taken him about one hour) and I flew back to blogland....now you beat me to it.

Thanks for your lovely comment.

Okay I was gonna tell you how I love organised people. I applaude you for your work space.

And what a gorgeous necklace you designed. Keep up the good work.
See you around.

Oh yea, gladd you had such a wonderful time at your sis.

That, my dear, is one FaNtAsTiC work room...no excuses now, not to have a constant creative flow!!!
You feel about the your sis being too far away distance wise, like I do for my daughter and grand baby girl. Indiana........North Carolina.....hmmm, too many miles for sure! And, seeing my two best girls is going down to once or twice a year....really not enough~
Dang job, dang economy....putting up barriers for happiness!
Grrr! Love all of your art work, and now we find, that it runs in the family. Cool beans. Will check out your etsy offerings, you're on my favorites, y'know!

WOW. You have an absolutely incredible studio! I am just in awe.... oh what a lucky lady you are! :-)
I'm sorry your sis lives so far away...it really is sad, isn't it? I'm in the DC area, and my brother is in FL so I completely understand. I miss him the moment he leaves with to return home. :-(
I wish your sister the best of luck with her new venture on Etsy!

Wow, all of that glorious glorius stuff organized so neat and tidy is a sheer delight to see. I'm glad I'm not the only pack rat, but oh how I wish I could be just a tad organized such as you. I love the pictures of your sis, her yard birds and the view from her porch. Thanks for the chance to win one of your resin filled pieces. It is so beautiful. I've got you linked up in my sidebar.

Hi Cat, studio is looking good! Must feel good to be so organized :-) I know what you mean about not being able to create amid the mess. I have still not gotten back into creating since our move last month. Busy making curtains :-) Diane

Oh, what gorgeous work you do - and such a fabulous work space! I'll add you as a link on my blog: dovedesigns.blogspot.com . Maybe you can add me to yours, though my work is no where near the quakity and expertise of yours - but I am trying.

You are a true artist. Love your work and your blog. Would love to win your wonderful necklace, too. I've put a link on my blog. Thanks for the inspiration.

miramecreations said...

You have an awesome studio...quite organized. I am still working on mine which needs an overhaul. I know what you mean about sisters. My four sisters are only a state away and I miss them all the time...its just not the same as being able to hang out with them at moments notice. I do have a sister that is very creative and we always have a blast when we hang out together. I love the scrabble pendants that your sister makes...just beautiful! I will be posting your giveaway because I happen to love butterflies and would love to win your beautiful pendant. I look forward to reading your blog everyday!

Manon said...

My first visit to your blog and I saw a kick butt (love that phrase) studio with lots of room. I see there are even some empty spaces for things to come.

Love your necklace. It is wonderful with all that butterfly goodness. What an awesome giveaway.
