Where Bloggers Create & Giveaway

July 11, 2013


Welcome to Where Bloggers Create 2013.


I am so glad that you are here and can't wait to show you where I create.  My name is Sheila Rumney (formerly Blessed and Distressed) and I am so excited to share my creative space with you.


My sweet hubby and I created this space shortly after we purchased our home.  Before it was an unfinished basement that we transformed it into my studio, our movie room and rec room where we spend much of our family time.  


Clara M., my dress form, greets everyone who enters this area.  I have a long hallway that holds creative treasures in my cabinets and on the other side I create little vignettes housed in vintage drawers hung on the wall.


I love incorporating family photos, lace, vintage embellishments just waiting to be used and treasured artwork that I have created.


I also spend a lot of time here at my studio computer desk creating digital and hybrid artwork with a vintage feel.  Currently, I am working on opening my own digital shop and can't wait to share it will you all!  


New to digital creating... click on my tutorials above and you too can start creating digitally.

As a thank you for visiting me, everyone can enjoy a sampling of a digital postcard that you can use in your personal artwork.

(Please click on the image and then save.)
