in the shop and drooling over stuff

Finally took pictures of my most recent flowers.
I was waiting for a nice sunny day, but the only day like that was when I wasn't home.
So today, I had KennaKat pose for me while it was sprinkling this morning.
{Of course the sun is out this afternoon, but I'm too lazy to retake pictures}

I'm working through my wool felt, 6 colors to go!  I also ordered another 12 colors, I'm so anxious to get them!  The plan is to have one of every color made before the new felt gets here next week.
{We'll see how that goes}
I'm not the most goal oriented person.  I'm more of an 'on a whim' person, which pretty much relates to almost everything I do.  Being in Jehovah's Organization, Being Married, and having kids pretty much sums up my long term commitments and accomplishments.
So if I can accomplish my mini goals, then I'm pretty proud of myself.
I can't seem to get into the habit of making one a night, which is where I would like to be.  
Maybe it's because it takes so long to hand-sew them, and once I get my table cleared off I don't really want to pull all the stuff out again?
Clean up is such a drag!

I've been day dreaming about what my perfect craft room {or even just an area all my own} would look like.  
And even though I may change my ideas every other day, I'm pretty settled on what I want to use for my flower station and other small art supplies:
Feast your eyes on these beauties!

Gorgeous printer cabinet

printer/ apothecary cabinet

This person took a library card cataloger and put a printer cabinet on top...ingenious! 
Isn't this such a great idea?!?!  I could house all of my felt, my beads, my flowers, my attachments, packaging materials, paints, glues, papers, EVERYTHING in one of these babies.  Oh how I drool over them.  
Maybe some day somebody will find one of these awesome creations in their shed or basement and be like "Hey, do you want this?  Here have it for free"
And I'll say "Thanks!  You rock!"

One day...
