New Button Boutique Stamp Set from Papertrey Ink

I am in love with this stamp set.  It is sew much fun!  So many ways to use it.  My sister in law Robin and I had a play date on Sunday and spent hours creating with it. Here are some of the pretties. Some of them will be listed in my Etsy shop. I used a vintage library pocket to hold the button a yo-yo of course!

Where this woman creates

Painted sewing cabinet and recovered the chair

This is my sewing/craft space. It use to be my daughters bedroom. I have always loved the wallpaper in there and decided to leave it when I wanted a sewing room.  It is a sweet rose vine print with a  black and pink border.  I painted my sewing cabinet white, recovered the chair and added a few storage pieces. I found the black bookcase unit at a thrift store. It holds most of my button collection, books and storage boxes. These photos were taken right after I finished the hasn't looked this good since!  I can only stand the clutter so long and then I have to straighten it up again.  I love having a pretty place to create!

This is a filing cabinet that I covered. It has velcro at the sides and holds my Christmas supplies.

Scrapbook area and day bed
