Where bloggers create.



It's always the same around here...doubting, thinking and (what we call) weighing what to do and then do it in the very last minute...so here I am; with my little studio in 'where bloggers create', hosted by Karen Valentine of 'my desert cottage'.

Na lang getwijfel en geaarzel en een verkoudheid heb ik toch besloten om mee te doen aan 'where bloggers create', ik weet het nog niet zo lang geleden heb ik een studio tour gegeven, ik heb nu weliswaar een paar nieuwe foto's maar toch...vond ik het leuk om het nog eens te doen, veel plezier!


Here it is; let's open the door:


Ohhh and let's close it immediately!
Mmm, I guess I have to confess that this is how I create...in a mess...So what do I do now? Show you some details?


some pink...


a little cutie...


a little birdie...

or we could do a little time traveling, sometime in April I showed you my little studio too and then my studio was nice and clean (especially for the occasion).
Ok, open that door again:


Well that's better!
My studio is in the smallest room of our house, such a room is called a 'kabinet' and you can obviously see why, but no one hears me complaining, this is small, but cozy and in the center of activity in our house; next to the computer and television room, which we call the study.


Above my desk I have an old mail divider from the post office in Vlaardingen.


Behind my desk there is a ladder, otherwise I cannot reach the highest shelves.


Chest of drawers that a friend of mine didn't want anymore.


And a rack filled with jars of buttons, bells and other supplies.


The bigger candy jars filled with lace and knick knacks on the other side of the room.


This is inspiration to me.


I like to see my little knick knacks so I use letter trays as storage, some revamped like this one, or just as is...


as this one, don't forget to click on the photos to see more details.


I use these cardholders (50 cts at the thrift store) as keepers for all lovely cards etc. I get from you! I have about 6 in this room!


my papers and the wicker cases, all are tagged, to keep me from searching.


I keep my yarns and fabrics (and paints) in the basement. What I am using is here in the wire basket (which is filled up to a yard high presently)


I try to keep rubbish (well one girls' trash is another girls' treasure) out of side in these bags. But when I work it is still a mess. I know I have too much, but I can only create from abundance.
Have a happy day touring around and finding inspiration at other creating bloggers, have fun! Thanks for your visit over here and thanks to Karen for hosting.
xoxo LiLi M.

It was wonderful to see what was really behind that door - a mess just like the rest of us. You have so many wonderful things in your studio to create with
Alison

La Flotte said...

Ik vind het werkelijk een paradijsje! Zovéééél jij hebt verzameld...zo fijn om alles bij de hand te hebben.
En alles moet aangevuld blijven natuurlijk, ik koop ook steeds nieuwe spulletjes bij alleen heb ik daar niet zo'n mooie kamer voor!
Ik wilde de oudste van 9 het huis al uit gooien zodat ik daar 'my space'kon maken maar ze was het er niet helemaal mee eens! hahaha
Ik zou zeggen, freubel er lekker op los!

Groetjes Heidi

Princess Of Pink said...

Wat een heerlijke ruimte! Ja mijn studio (de eetkamer lol) is ook een rommeltje. maar er zit een deur voor en ik eet in de woonkamer YAY!! Dus dat rommeltje mag van mij, voel ik me ook het lekkerst bij. Alles staat waar het moet staan, ongeveer......en anders is het zoeken geblazen! Dat rose laarsje (avon) heb ik ook , leuk is tie nog steeds, lol

Groetjes...

Lori said...

LiLi...you are so funny:) time travel...LOL...well, you were just keeping it real...creating is messy sometimes...when i am finished working on something, i am always amazed to look around and see all of the "things" i have dragged out...that's the part i hate...the clean up...your studio cleans up very nicely...you have so many great things there to inspire you...i love your printer drawers all loaded up with cute little bits and bobs...and the way you use jars for a lot of your storage...it looks great!!!

Bumble Bee Cottage said...

Your studio look lovely messy or tidy; you are so lucky to have a space to call your own. The mess just shows it is well used and loved and that you are human and have more to do in your day than keep a picture perfect home. The photos of your studio are wonderful; have you thought of contacting one of those craft/home magazines about the possibility of an article; seriously I think they would be interested.

Carol said...

Oh dear LiLi your studio is absolutely enchanting!!!
Please consider uploading these pictures to flickr and I'll send you an invitation to my flickr group Vintage inspired studios/craft spaces. I'd love to comment on every single photo and I'd so love to have you in the group!!!
I just found out about this fantastic party and spontaenously decided to play along!

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

A divine wonderland! I simply love it all. I will have to really look at each photo with all the beauty you have! Blessings dear one.

Florence and Mary said...

Beth Leintz said...

What a great room- your vignettes are so sweet- and I love how you've displayed bits and baubles in glass jars- I may borrow that idea.

Twa said...

We hadden hem inderdaad pas al gezien, maar ik vind het weer heerlijk om in je knutselkamer rond te kijken hoor. Ik zal eens kijken of ik er ook nog aan mee kan doen. Mijn knutselkamer is zo goed als af, moet nog wel wat opgeruimd (daar fotografeer ik gewoon omheen) en wat opgehangen, maar het gros is klaar. Prettig weekend!

jojo-caramel said...

You have a very very lovely studio ! Full of wonderful treasures ! A great place to create !!! I have awarded you on my blog :) Hugs

Jeany said...

oh mied, ik ben verliefd op je kamertje, heeerlijk ziet dat er uit, wat ik daar eens graag zou willen snufflen, ik moet mijn kamer helaas delen met de klerenkast en rommelkast van mijn man en in de rekken zijn ook nos steeds een paar planken van hem, dus helaas, niet helemaal mijn kamertje, maar goed, een mens mag niet klagen, hele leuke foto's en veel leifs van mie, jeany

Wanda said...

I always love looking at your studio..the door alone is breathtaking. It is such a pretty room (messy or not). Thanks for sharing (again).

Jodie LeJeune said...

Oh Lili, I love it! I love everything! Past or present...your creative space is beautiful!!!! I love all of your yummy filled drawers and tray filled goodies! And the wallpaper??? I could wrap myself in it!!! (it would take several rolls though!) ;)
I so enjoyed my visit, thank you for having me over.
I'll pass the compliments over to Sophie...she'll be so excited!
everything vintage

zandra said...

Wow! So glad you joined the party so I could find you! Great Space I love the mess (well, isn't that the way it should be all the time...lol)! Thanks, for sharing! Hugz, Z

Connie said...

It's beautiful, beautiful and more beautiful, sugar! Just so "european" shabby chic in its appeal. I love tall windows and the wood floors (wish mine were wood!) and the little jars with lids. I paint mine pink and store pretty ribbons in - and also nails and screws on my kitchen sink shelf so I have them handy when I need something. They provide "eye candy" when they are actually very functional!
:-) <------ ME smiling at ya, sugar.

Connie

Sandy Michelle said...

Hi Lili! It's thanks to you that I'm having my studio showcased!! I just love the shelf above your desk, your mannequin and all those lovely supplies! You should send images to CPS Studios as well!

Hugs!

Your studio is wonderful Lili. My studio does not stay neat long either. I have to dig through everything to find what I want and then it doesn't always get put back.

Dawn-Hydrangea Home said...

Wow! You have a ton of supplies but they are so nice and organized and so insiring. Thanks for sharing! And thanks so much for stopping by my studio.

What a delight to see your workspace! It is filled with all the charming things that I love; thank you dear one for coming to visit me and for your well wishes for my paper. I will be turning in all my work today for a final review and more revisions, but I am so glad that I used this summer to tear into this! Merci for all your kindnesses....Anita

vivian said...

YOu have a beautiful studio! I tend to create in a mess myself. its hard not to when you start getting out the supplies you want to work with.. and its so much easier to see what you have when its not all put neatly away somewhere! Ah yes, but it is also so nice when we are not creating to see it all looks so neat and pretty!
have a lovely weekend!
hugs

Stephenie said...

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Hi Lili,
I love your studio, it's perfect and you're so well organized. All the perfect jars, cubbies and storage containers so sweet. I especially love the wicker baskets stacked. Even your art nouveau style white door with glass is so chic. Ooh, I wanted to say when I say little Rudolph (the Red Nosed Reindeer) I knew I had found a kindred spirit! And I saw in your profile you like Annie Lennox (the one and only!). I am a huge fan of her beautiful music too. Well, I'd better get going, still have much visiting to do. Your space is inspirational ~ thank you! Really like your banner back from November too at your sidebar.
~Tracie

Miss Sandy said...

Lili,
I adore your studio! What a wonderful and magical place to create! I love the teeny tiny doll heads that you have in your printers tray. I could most certainly get crafty in Kabinet as you call it. Truth be told mine usually looks like your first photo, I just cleaned it up for the party. Next time I mess it up I'll have to show just how messy I am when working on a project. Love your space and thanks for sharing!

The French Bear said...

I just love that you showed your creative space as the real thing, that's how mine looks most of the time!!!! I love your room, the jars are amazing, and all those cabinets! Wonderful!
I think I follow your other blog, Button Floozies.
Thanks for sharing your space and coming by to see mine. My husband is Dutch, I am Canadian (Austrian/Ukrainian Heritage). It is a long name!!!! I just call him the Dutchman!
The big teddy bear is one I made, I hope to get my Etsy store going soon!
Cheers,

noumoe ! Ongelooflijk wat een mooie ruimte heb je..daar krijg je wel inspiratie van zeg ! Geweldig zoals je dat gedaan heb met al die glazen potten..ik heb ook een paar "hak"potjes, maar ik vind die apothekerspotten l heel gaaf hoor. Mooi dat je zo'n ruimte hebt, ik ben wel een beetje stik jaloers eigenlijk ;-)

Hey bedankt voor je reactie op mijn cherub, cherubijnen en engelen hahaha, ik vind cherubs gewoon een mooi woord, en omdat ze zo mooi zijn vond ik dat er een passende naam bij moest hiihi..de mijne heb ik gekocht voor iets minder dan de helft van die 94 eurie...ontzettend, 94 euro was me toch echt teveel geweest..ik vond dat dit al boven mijn budget ging hahaha maar bedankt jouw verhaal maakt het voor mij helemaal goed !

tot gauw weer, groetjes, E

Wauw, wat een comments: super, dat krijg je met zo een mooie post! Ik kijk mijn ogen uit hoor. Jou huisje is het tegenovergestelde van mijn huis, dat is vrij kaal met hier een daar een verzamelplek.

Zelf haal ik mijn inspiratie uit de natuur die hier natuurlijk rondom is. Maar ik wil bij jou wel eens een keertje in het echt inspiratie op doen hoor, genieten!

Hey Lidwien!! Ik ben sinds kort ook een blog begonnen en ik kwam jou natuurlijk ook tegen. Ik ben een picasa-girl en je hebt me destijds eens geholpen met mijn oude bloemetjes behang, weet je nog?

Fijne avond!!
