One hurdle that I often face is thinking that anything needs to be permanent. Silly as it seems, I seem to labor over making a hole in the wall!
As if things can’t be patched! So with this new resolve, I created new holes galore, with my only thought – – to have fun and be whimsical!
First I decided on stacking two wooden crates for shelves.
I wanted a handy place for some of my dye tools and chemicals above the stove.
I stained and stamped tags for labeling the contents. I taped the string on the tag to the inside of the canister, so that the labels wouldn’t fall off when I take the lid off. I can easily change labels as needed.
The idea I had as I decorated was to be colorful and to surround myself with things that I love and that inspire me. I found this home-made swatch book in my travels, and love its charm and color inspiration. Why keep things in the drawers? Put them out to see!
Olive Rose’s VooDoo Kitty presides over the sink and makes sure that all of my sinister brews are cooked to perfection.
Even though it is just the beginning of August, I can feel a change in the air already, and I have begun buying wool to start dyeing for the Fall.
I am excited to do more dyeing, as the dye kitchen is calling to me! I am already conjuring up some new colors for my etsy shop, and am waiting for some cooler weather to begin.
Thanks for joining me on this Monday morning!
Have a creative week ~ Karen
