Where Bloggers Create

July 12, 2014

Hello, my name is Sheila Rumney.  Welcome to my creative studio...


Years ago we finished the basement in our home, which includes not only a rec room, media room but also my creative space.


My studio has an odd shape, but we made the most of the space by putting a row of lower and upper cabinets in the hallway to store my crafting supplies.


Many of my favorite supplies at my finger tips.


I have enjoyed decorating this space with a warm inviting country feel.


I love using vintage jars, books and baskets to store my crafting supplies.


Inside the cabinets, I like to create little vingettes and try to keep them organized so when I have a few minutes to create I am not spending time hunting for that special something.


In the hallway on the opposite side of the cabinets, we hung old drawers up on the wall to display old family photos along with vintage treasures to create with.


Thank you for visiting my creative studio.


I hope you enjoyed your visit.  

Thank you Karen for hosting another fabulous Where Bloggers Create Party.  I can't wait to visit everyone's spaces.  See you soon.

Hi there, Sheila,

I didn't find you via the blog party but from an article in a book by Tara Frey: BLOGGING FOR BLISS: Crafting Your Own Online Journal. Imagine that! Some of the other bloggers in the book can't be found with the blog address but I am so grateful you are still around.

Thank you for the photos of your studio. I am not participating in the blog party this year for a variety of reasons.

And you take a great photo of you!!!

Blessings and I'll be a new follower,

You have a beautiful creative space. I think I enjoyed all the little vingettes that you created. I don't know how you are able to keep them all organized. My cat Allistair would love to knock it all down and play with the little trinkets.

That Vintage Jewelry Box Storage Image is so Pretty... I too like to often have my Supplies visible because so many of them are Eye Candy even before they are used in the Creative Process. Thank you for inviting us into your Personal Sanctuary! Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

Love your space, Sheila! It looks like you've utilized the space to your best advantage, too. Love the way you have things displayed. That little candle light is so cute. I'd probably have it on all the time!

How wonderful to have all that space for creating and playing.

I love your decor and storage ideas.

Oh, I love the sunny color on the walls and all the wonderful "you" touches you've built into the room. I love the repurposed drawers....such a smart idea, and I am totally going to steal that one! LOL Love how tidy everything is, but still warm, cozy and inviting....just like you! It would be so much fun to have a play date in this lovely spot! Thanks so much for sharing it, Sheila!
