what a dump

Betty Davis said that in a movie but it describes my studio I am in need of shelving and order. we have the office in pretty good shape but not done. and my supplies are in boxes stacked upstairs.I work on it a little every day but it gets over whelming - I will keep looking for shelves this week and hopefully get things together soon. I am also looking for a desk or table I can set my sewing machine on. I found a dress form on ebay and bought it and I'm waiting for it to be sent - I have several things in mind to sew. yay..... and I also want to make several more from it to to decoupage. I'll make them from duck tape - first I'll cover it in a trash bag and wrap it in tape - carefully cut down the back and remove from the dress form and tape the back together. I can fill it with crumbled newspaper - a nice way to recycle it. and then strengthen it with strips of news paper and decoupage medium and then the collage - I have several in mind I want to do. just need to get my studio together. cross your fingers for me.


  1. Hi Pat! Hope all is well and fun!

  2. Hi there! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

    Oh, you are getting a new studio space .. how fun! Just think about how gorgeous it is going to be when you get it all pulled together. Do you have an IKEA around you? They have some really awesome sturdy shelving for extremely attractive prices.

    Lucky you for snagging a dress form! And making copies is just brilliant!

    Good luck on your studio!
