Where Bloggers Create 2015!

 Hello and welcome to another post

Today's post is very exciting as you will be able to have a sneak peak into the studios of many bloggers.
Karen Valentine at My Deset Cottage  CLICK HERE  is hosting the
7th Annual Blog Party. You will be able to walk into the creative space of some amazingly talented Artists/Crafter's and see how they organize they're space.

Right here you can have a browse through my studio where I create my Tim Tags each month and my Journals, Notebooks and whatever takes my fancy. You will see I have a love for anything Vintage, Grungy, Regal, Tassels and Frames. It has changed quite a bit since last year. I hope you enjoy the Tour and I thank-you for visiting here today. If you have time I would LOVE to know what you think by leaving a comment.

Just for a bit of fun I have also organized a short video of my studio that includes some of my many creations. Enjoy! Click HERE. There are also photos below.

As the sign says WELCOME!!!

My new Bakers Shelves have come in very handy. This houses all the Glass Jars, Tea Dyed Papers, Tags, Dyed Binding, Book Plates, Copic's, Embossing Folders, Stamps and more. These black storage boxes and magazine holders are from Ikea.

The WORK STATION where things come to life......Spray it, Measure it, Staple it, Mask it, Stamp it, Texture Paste it, Cut it,  Ink it, Dye it, Grunge it, Emboss it, Bling it, Glue it, Paint it, you name it, IT all happens here.

Die Station right here, my carousel which houses all the samples of the dies and embossing folders. I can quickly flick through it for inspiration.

Hope your enjoying the tour so far.

Around the papers are serviette holders I found in an Antique store. One has Jack and Jill engraved into it.

A couple of years ago a friend and I went to see the Mary Poppins Musical in Melbourne Victoria and it was the best show I have seen to date absolutely mind blowing! I would love to see it again.

These Lanterns were hanging above our 2014 Christmas table, they looked amazing and didn't want to throw them out just yet, yes think I will hang them in my Studio.

These are the Journals and Notebooks I LOVE to make. The chest below contains craft magazines and the Hessian Vintage bag keeps my Canon Camera and accessories in one place.

Couldn't resist this frame when I saw it, I have placed a piece of my favourite paper inside.

Love this chipped worn look.

Some Regal and  Steam Punk, love it.

Let me introduce you to Esmeralda. My children use her to collect our Easter Eggs.

I came across these really cool Ice Coupons whilst going through my studio and I don't remember where I sourced them from.

Tags, Tags and more Tags....

Tea Dyed Papers, just can't get enough of the wonderful crunchy sound when flicked through.

Tim's Lost Relatives just hanging around.

Each year I display my Tim's 12 Tags of 2015. Wowwa are we half way through the year already?????

Oh yes, let me introduce you to Bob Winston! He watches everything I do and is the Winton Rose Paper Creations Quality Control Officer.

Alcohol Ink applicators at my finger tips, they are on a magnetic board therefore not taking up valuable work bench space.

Who doesn't love a good magnet?

Thank-you so much for visiting!

Now I'm off to check out all the other Crafter's Blogs.
