~ A Beautiful Mess ~

what a mess....
a beautiful mess.

a mess I don't mind making!

 in the throes of creativeness and making-things
I also tend to leave a trail behind me...

 my sewing room looks like a tornado hit it!

but it's ok...
Good Things are coming from all of this creative chaos.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Blessings from the Farm

  1. I'm so happy you make messes, too! It's evidence of creativity at work. Keep making those messes!

  2. it looks wonderful...when my sewing room/house looks this way it's creativity at it's finest...looking forward to see what your brilliant mind and hands come up with...

  3. Sounds like something all of us who do handwork are familiar with, lol! For me, it allows uninterrupted concentration on what I'm doing. The cleaning can come afterwards! Off to a luncheon with the girls!

  4. P.S. That's a sweet little crafting table!

  5. Otherwise known as 'a rich environment' (that's what I call mine anyway after I read it in a book about raising children when mine were small).

  6. Love your workroom !!! Nice & cozy ..... and fun searching for things !!! Can't wait to see what you have been busy doing !!!

  7. Oh but this makes my heart feel wonderful and at home with the mess of making magic happen. Thanks for this post. My sewing room AND wool room look very similar.

  8. It's called "Creative Beauty" least that's what I call my room when it's at it's worst!! So fun to have room to be able to mess around in!! Can't wait to see what your Creative Beauty has created!

  9. Love that fun mess,,,
    Cant wait to see all ur creations!!
    Thanks for sharing, lori,,,,
    That is a sweet table,,,,

  10. Love that little crafting table! Looks like a workroom I could be happy in.
