Where bloggers create party!!!


Update! Today is the day of the "Where bloggers create" party!


It's organised by Karen Valentine (such a beautiful name!) over at http://mydesertcottage.blogspot.com/.
Seeing that I just happened to post pictures of my studio in all my last posts (there are lot's of pictures please scroll down) I spontaneously decided to play along. What a fantastic party theme!!! Isn't it? :) I so love seeing other people creative spaces.


If you too have a vintage inspired studio/craft space please consider to join my flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/vintage_inspired_studios/
I'd love to have you in the group!




To see more photos of my studio all in one space please visit my flickr photo stream "In my studio" here:

I love your studio too! We both managed to join the party in the last minute (thanks to time difference in my case). I knew this for a long time, but why always wait till the last minute? I guess I just don't want to know. Great that you are in too. I will upload some photos to your flickr album this weekend ok? I'm off to see your previous post, have a lot of fun today (and probably tomorrow, there are a lot of party peeps at this one!)

Hello Carol,

Well I can confidently say I managed to MISS your studio last month! OMG, you're a woman after my heart..I, too, HAVE to collect..it's in my DNA. I am hopelessly hooked on vintage fabric, sewing patterns, embroidery transfers, sewing booklets, etc..

Please come take a peek at my "studio in progress". I just moved into my home recently and have been remodeling for 3 months and counting. My studio has had some improvement made to it but is still not put together yet. It will be vintage inspired so I'll definitely join your vintage inspired studio group. :0) Here is the link to my blog post since I know it's left the first page now:

http://queenofdreamsz.blogspot.com/2009/07/theres-partywhere-bloggers-create.html

I've got to go look at more of your flickr pictures. :0)

Bye for now,
Stephanie
