and Arabella has come to remind you to read the posts below - about the Buckeye House Rabbit Spring Raffle - to win an Arabella Bag as a prize!
Here is my work area - where all my Arabella bags, baby hares and Priceless ACEOs come to life, as well as watercolour paintings and my handmade cards!
This is an IKEA drawer insert that I use to display a tiny portion of my precious 'things'. I have cut up cards, book images, lots of plastic Britains animals, some JEOL animals from Hong Kong, lovely buttons, stamps and a small flock of geese too. At the top are two xmas deer with Baby Hare Goodnight in the centre (he wanted to be in the photo!)
I painted the base and sides of the drawer then glued in the wooden 'slots'. Only cost pennies from IKEA in their basement bargain section and so much better than a printers press tray. I am pretty nifty with a drill and have industrial hooks in the back with extra strong webbing holding it up on 3 wall hooks. It is pretty heavy! It never gets dusted (have you seen how many slots there are??) and from just the right angle it can even look like snow.
and this is my work table - looking tidy.
Looking tidy because everything has been placed in it's work order location. Nothing is missing and I can see exactly what needs to be done.
At the front centre is a baby hare 'being born', behind are two of my new Baby Swans and to the left are some Arabella bags to be finished. Inside them are a couple of baby hares, infact it is Baby Hare Star and Baby Hare Dieter and a few more waiting for names and stories.
At the back is my pen and ruler holder. It was a china vessel of sorts that I re-arranged with a hammer and some DAS modelling clay. (I removed a human from it). At the front left are more meaningful Priceless ACEOs.
On the wall is my notice board covered with images that I love - hares, reindeer, fjord horses and the beautiful Fawn that I bought at Jen's shop http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5513972 and at the left is a small cardinal pouch, one of the first purchases I made on etsy that I bought from Kim at Capebags http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5358773
So - not as messy as it looks!
