My Secret is out!

Today is Where Bloggers Create II day and my pal Jodie has shammed me into posting something! 

WhereBloggersCreateII 

So here’s my story . . .  This morning I spent 5 hours, yes I said FIVE hours at the mechanic’s getting new brakes & an oil change on my beloved car (last years’ bday gift from DH).  Some how I think this will be this years gift!  LOL  Anyway, I had the brilliant idea to bring my laptop with me in the hope that I would be able to jump on a free wifi connection in the area and I scored!  I spent the entire time enjoying the amazing creative spaces of bloggers from all over the world and I only made it through the C’s!  I am inspired beyond imagination to put together some sort of space.  You see my secret is that I have the help of Victoria, Victoria’s Secret that it is, in my “pile of a mess of a creative space.”  Do you see her peeking out in the picture below?

I like small handle bags to keep projects in; not exactly sure what it is about them, but they really work for me.  I don’t have a craft space and my kitchen table is under all of that somewhere.  It’s glass so it sort of disappears anyway, right?  I am now on a mission and I WILL have something FabUlous to post next year.  Huge thanks to Karen Valentine for hosting this party for all of us to inspire one another.  The separate blog will be up for the entire year so you have plenty of time to visit all of these amazing places.

What I CAN tell the world is not to let this mess fool them...some FABULOUS creations arise from here...just like my beautiful necklace you made me!!!!!

I'll be looking forward to seeing your "new and neater" space next year :)

Plus...Five hours at the shop, huh? Not all of us gals are fortunate enough to drive a Mercedes (& fit into Victoria Secret!)...I'm just sayin'...

I LOVE YOU SISTA!

Sandy,
Oh I see some vintage velvet ribbon that looks strangely familiar. Have you been shopping with Miss Jodie! I see some other goodies, want to see more next year! Lisa

OMG we are indeed sisters of the soul/studio!!!!!!!!!!!! Yep, if Karen can't inspire a girl NO ONE CAN! Can't wait to see what you cook up. I know it will be amazing. I guess IF you had to spend your Saturday at the car repair shop this was the best way to do it. Thanks for your kind words on my studio. Next year it will look different for sure (no wall paper) :) HUGS! I can't wait to see you & give you hugs in person!!!! Counting the days. Charlene

Hi Sandy!!! You are such a sweetie! I love this post!! Weve all been there a time or two for sure! AND, I can't wait to see what you share with us next year!

You go girl! Lay it all out there. Some people might look at that pic and see one big mess but my trained eyes go shopping, LOL. I would so love to pick out a few things in your stash, what great stuff, a gal after my own heart! I can see the true creative chaos that lies there, there really is a certain order to things isn't there? I'm there with you, though, my husband calls me the bag lady, Tee-Hee. This is what my counter top looked like and I forced myself to clean it up for the WBC party.

P.S. I'm your Bead Box Swap Partner and I just wanted to come say hello!

Hope you have a great weekend!
