Making my Lamp :):)

        I decided to dress up my little lamp...that sits next to my lazy-boy. So, every time I sit done to just watch TV or a movie...I pull the lamp over into my lap and start to zentangle:):) ( Daisy is on the floor watching me)

                                           putting the final touches on the zentangle
                I decided to add buttons on the lamp shade to match the colors of the curtains.
                                    Super fun project...and a great addition to my room:):)
I went to a grown-up party the other night...my first in years. And you would think I would have taken it a little more seriously:):) .....but, nope...not me...had to have some fun with it:):)
I had a wonderful time!!! ...and my antlers were a hit:):)
Hugs- and thanks for stopping by:):)

I probably wont get another post in before Christmas!!! So, I want to wish you all a....

Very.....MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!!

Sewing Curtains:)

 So, I finally bit the boring bullet ....to do some very boring sewing!!! I have been putting off making my happy curtains with the fabric I bought from Ikea....really dreading making them. The windows are 120 inches wide...and 8 feet tall. So, you see ...lots of straight boring lines...and a huge bundle of fabric fighting you the whole way...LOL!!!! Okay, enough of the whining...I did it!!! And I am VERY glad I did....because THEY ARE AWESOME!!!!!

                                                    putting the grommets in place
                                                          hemming the bottom
                                                                         hanging
TA-DA!!!! They look great!! ...and they are done, and I NEVER have to do them again...LOL!!!!
I used the hospital track you can buy at an upholstery store....by the time you have the track cut to size and get the parts to go with it...I spent 50 bucks.!!!! Amazing!!!  Trying to buy a curtain rod for a window this big ..will run you 600 or more...I know I looked!!! I love the hospital track...it attaches to the ceiling and your curtains just slide along!!!

Will post more pics soon. Trying to figure out how to upload video. So I can walk you through my studio:):) Have a great day!!

Marker Organizer Tutorial :):)


     I am having so much fun organizing my new Happy Place.....I am thinking of different ways I can store my supplies. Since I have a ton of markers...I was looking for a way to store them...and came up with this idea....PVC pipes cut and painted... then stacked.
                               ...after the pipes are cut to size....sand the edges smooth.......

                                          ...then take them outside and spray paint them....
....I even sprayed the insides as well.....
                             ......I need to buy another PVC pipe to fill in the holes:):)

This is my art desk...(command center if you will)
All my everyday supplies are right where I can reach them:):)

More pictures later on the room:):)
Lets call this the tease (sneak peek)...LOL!!!

Much Love- Sandie
