It's Party Time!

Welcome to Janet's Creative Pillows! I am thrilled to be able to participate in the Where Women Create II Party!

I recently moved to a new home in West Palm Beach ,Florida. I don't have an office unfortunately. But I never stop dreaming that one day that will happen. I find ways to organize my things so that I can create and sew. It's not easy when you have two kids,but when you love what you do you find a way.

So let me start with a small tour. I use my closet to store all of my fabric. I have almost every color you can think of. Here is a picture of some of my stash.

I use shoe boxes that I covered up with cute paper so that I can keep my buttons,ribbons and crafts inside them. I have a box for every color. Here are some....

I use buckets to keep my small pillows in. I love them. And guess what? They are Chick Fil A buckets! lol. I don't mind. I plan to cover those babies up with pretty paper soon too. Why waste a good thing. Here are pics of them filled with goodies ...

I am also a doll collector. I have many,many dolls,but too many to show you so here is a small glimpse of some of them.

I like to use hat boxes. I fill them with different things too. In this pic I have one of them filled with little different size heart pillows. As you can see I already covered one up with a collage of bride pics. I thought that would look nice against a dark background. Those hat boxes sure come in handy and look pretty if you add a doll on them. :-)

I am an artist and I love to paint. It's one of my biggest passions. I wish I had a drawing room. But someday I will. I paint whereever I feel comfortable. Here is a pic of my paints in a drawer. since that is the only place I can fit them right now,but it's easy for me to find them.

One of my fun vintage case I keep lots of ribbons and crafty things too. Here is a pic...

And speaking of brief cases...I recently met with a dear friend who gave these pretty cases and beautiful vintage lace to me and the cases are perfect for keeping lace in. I thank her for that because I really needed them. Here they are...

Here is a corner of my working area. I love to have pretty things around me. I like to hang some of my pillows on doorknobs around my house and keep my handmade dolls and pillows on display .

And finally here is my humble place to sew. I use my dinning room table. It's not an office,but it's sure better than nothing. I am grateful for what I have. Here it is....

Thank you so much for stopping by. I sure hope you enjoyed this small tour of my work space. I really enjoyed this party! Thank you to Karen of My Desert Cottage for hosting this fun event and of course to Jo Packham. She is an inspiration. I will be visiting all the blogs and I wish all of you so much luck. Jo will have a hard time picking winners since there are so many wonderful and talented ladies,but I know she will know she will make the right choices. :-) Here is the list to all who are particpating..
