cold weather and crafting



i've enjoyed myself the past two weeks. family visits, parties and quiet time at home. time to myself was a perfect ending to the holiday season. so, i locked myself in the craftroom this past weekend, to escape the the winter CHILL burrrrrr!. i love the little space i use in the laundry room. the washer & dryer get a corner and the rest is all mine. it's a win, win situation all my stuff  just "THERE" waiting on me, day in and day out. i don't need to clean up when i'm done, just CLOSE the door. when the rest of the family enters the room to do laundry they get to see all my crazy creations. and, i think they're better off for having done so. hehee.  maybe we can finish this room over the winter. it didn't make the top 10 list after the remodeling project. it's kind of primitive in there now. a few cabinets, dressers and a portable table. it works for now!
i found this neat metal shoe a few years ago at marshalls. embellishing it took some time but, i love how the little nesting bird turned out. the tags are from my new cricut machine my daughter gave me for christmas. (love it) the bird is a left over christmas ornament, some vintage buttons, lace and sheet music give pinkie all the comforts of home. i have a few more goodies to finish up and will be posting them soon. maybe the creative brain cells move quicker when it's 27 degress out.
