Studio Tour....Welcome to My Mess

I keep saying I gotta clean this up before I take pictures but let's face it ,that just ain't gonna happen anytime soon. So welcome to my mess..... A little bit o insight into the creative process (or lack of)

(click an image to enter slide show mode...more fun)
Knitting Needles multiplying like Tribbles

Finds, too busy to put away so they get piled on the floor (no I am NOT a hoarder) these are "Art Supplies"

Old TV and more piles of stuff, there's a floor under there somewhere.

Pounds of metal hardware from the Habitat Restore

Assembly bench with lots of findings, wire, chain, yadda...

Drilling bench with screws, nuts, bolts, wire for riveting.

Metalwork bench, anvils, hammers, bracelet mandrel and more stuuuuuuf

The chemical bench (the really messy room) where I keep bleach AND amonia on the same shelf (I like to live dangerously)

More knitting needles, I'm not a knitter

Stash wall, filled up, I need another
A cake pan full of vintage chain ready to be heat painted.

My treasure chests of cast offs, the stuff I can't use

Have 4 old make up cases full so far, starting on a 5th.

Barbie Head Spoon for stirring.

These will go to the Denver Bead Bazaar for the ladies to fight over.
Outside junk, oh no, we don't wanna go there.....at least not til we get to know each other better.

  1. Whoa! That's a serious lot of stuff! And a wonderful workspace. What do you use all those knitting needles for!!?

    1. Jenni, thanks and yeah it is a lot and that's only part of it. I make smashed knitting needle bracelets!. You see them here http://www.etsy.com/shop/ChristinesCabinet?section_id=11917396 :)

  2. Okay, that is a lot of stuff, but you can never have too much I think

  3. Thank you for showing that, I feel much better about my own workspace now! =) It looks about the same but with different materials and way less organized. Actually, it kind of looks like a craft store threw up in my space. Great minds craft alike!

  4. Oh, the joy of such treasures! I am honored to make your acquaintance, and wish you much success. I'll be shopping at your ETSY stores for sure.
