Where Women Create

We sold the original book, Where Women Create at Joyworks, where I work. Now one Blogger is posting and event to share creative environs. I responded and laughed, because all MY crafting stuff is all over the dining room table and my breakfast nook right now because my office/crafting area is occupied by my home-again 24 year old son.

Andy, my former Marine and 2 time Vet in the Iraq War is back home. I love him to pieces. Although I've called him "Hurricane Andrew" for years, you can't currently see the influence of the Marine Corps on his domestic domain. But, as I formerly shared, I'll gladly put up with the mess, until he gets his own place and returns to College this Fall, it's great to have him home.

So, the Creative space is more than a bit jumbled-my breakfast Nook, the diningroom table, and when I'm testing new materials and new techniques, the coffee table isn't even immune.

But I'll dream and plan for the space and wish all the while that he was still home. Creating HIS Chaos.



  1. Glad you're participating, Shell! I do A LOT of creating on my couch, bed, coffee table but hardly any of it in the room my husband gave up for me. It's all what you make of the space you have, right? I should really take my own advice since I'm always talking about what petite rooms we've got here! Still waiting for my lotto ticket too. I'm going to post about a great cause for needy pooches by Saturday, so hope you can join in with that as well. Happy night!

  2. Decided just to send on link. Au revoir for now ;)

  3. Hi Shell! I'm so glad you are joining us! I think it's going to be lots of fun and very inspirational!!

    Didn't find the pooch link yet, but I'm sure you'll have me going. I may have to read it AFTER work on Sat, either that or "Pre-makeup."

    When Sara McLaughlin did the ASPCA commercial and I saw it for the first time, I picked up the phone sobbing hysterically, "Where do I send my check?" Needless to say, I now get all their newsletters. I'm a basket case when it comes to our furry friends.

  5. Wow!
    I love that book! It's one of my favorites.
    I'm sure it's so nice to have your son home for awhile. Thank him for me, for all he did and does for our country.
    Have a wonderful weekend,
