Welcome to "Where Bloggers Create 2011" 3rd Annual Blog Party


Hello WBC Party Friends !




My Desert Cottage




Thank you Karen for coordinating this great event!
Thank you for coming by or coming back and visiting.  I am always happy to entertain blogalistas - is that a word - I'm using it anyway.

Here are a few pictures of my work area.  I cleaned up for you just a bit cause it's usually not this clean, I must confess.  Hope you enjoy.  


This is what you see as you enter.


 My Blogging station


A closer look.  That thing with the black screen is going away soon.  It has been misbehaving and has been giving me fits so I have upgraded to an iMAC...YAY!


This is my view at my work table.


This is what I see from my work table  if i look up.  I use the white boxes  to store supplies I really don't use often.


And this is directly in front of me -looking up.  More storage and beads and baubles in jars I have repurposed from mainly Yankee Candles.  They are just big enough to hold quite a few strands of beads.


Paz & Amor are still hanging around in their love nest...they hang from the ceiling.


My sign - sorry for the bad picture. I made it out of an old frame and covered cork board in fabric and finished it off with off white flowers.


This is my view out into the foyer and living room as I sit at  my work table.


These are a few pictures of different areas.  




See all the jars?







Final pictures and vignettes








These beauties are getting ready for the "Mes Bijoux Vintages" store on Etsy very soon.





My filing station - my moms sewing box with folders...lol!




My mom and dad








 Inspirational board.



I hope you have enjoyed your visit.  Please keep the door open for me - I will be by to visit with you soon.  


Karen thank you for all the hard work you put into this event.  God's Blessings to you and to everyone visiting.

  2. Ay Jenny girl, can't wait to see where you work, I mean the studio!! LOL I can't possibly join the party, my studio looks like someone threw a hand grenade in there and shut the door. Oh well, I call it "organized chaos," kind of like me!! LOL

    Glad to hear your grant $$ came in....I think I told you my sis has been doing that kind of work for years. She's currently working for "Chicanos Por La Causa," in Chandler, AZ and loves her job and the people.

    BTW, go over to my blog anyway, no pics of the studio, but my newest work. Have a great weekend, mi amiga, and keep creating.

    Abrazos,
    Georgina

I can see she watches over everything you do as you bless others with your amazing talent. I really enjoyed this post and loved the music. May you continue to be blessed in your creative journey! Please come and say hello at my studio! bertie

  14. Jenny-
    A girl after my own heart! Love your creative space and your jewelry. I made a rosary-type necklace and loved it so much that I had to keep it for myself. Your vintage inspired jewels...yummy. Read your other blogs-might have to get that soldering tutorial.
    What state are you in?

    I had no idea that there is a Catholic Etsy Artists Guild!
