Yay! It is a 4th annual Where bloggers create blog hop....where we can show you all our studios!!!
The lovely Karen Valentine hosts this big party!!! Go to her blog to see everyone else's studio....so much fun and gives you great ideas!!!
Let me introduce myself to you....if you don't already know me.
I'm Shirley Hudson of Hudson's Holidays Designs. I design craft and quilt patterns. My projects range from stitcheries/embroidery, wool projects, pin cushions, wallhangings, quilts, and everything for every holiday. Currently I have over 180 patterns in my line. I also create art via paintings and digital artwork. I have the best job in the world, and I am very grateful for it! My husband and daughter mean the world to me and I love them dearly!
Above is the quilted wallhanging on the passage way to my studio.
This is a cool little shelf I got at a flea market....it is perfect near my mailing center! I did some collage work on the painting on top...."One day at a time".
I love Pom-poms!!! It is almost like candy.
I keep my pins with stamped sayings near by for Mannequin pin cushions.
I keep a printers drawer full of odds and ends near my glue gun....to embellish projects.
Here is a painting I am working on...from an old book page. It is a trick or treating princess.
I like keeping my fav stamps in a large bowl...handy!
When I am using a paper punch....I keep them organized by putting them in a muffin tin.
I keep my paints in this old shelve from goodwill.
This lil letter organizer is perfect for tags. I keep my Titanic sculpture my daughter made me on it. I also have my lil Anne boleyn painting on the top too.
This is hard to see...but it is 4 loaf pans joined together...great for organizing.
I love creating with inexpensive items...like party streamers! I keep all my colors in baskets. I like to paper craft alot!
Here is my cubby hole display...chuck full of my junk...I mean stuff! Here is a large mannequin from my mannequin pattern.
I have so many things around I don't know what to do with it at times. There are strawberry pin cushions, mice pin cushions, party hats, bowl fillers, etc....
"Life is good" Party hat adapted from my festive party hats pattern.
True love....for kitties. I like big eyes!
My daughter models my hats....she has big eyes! She has an art table right next to mine. She is going to high school this year...yikes!
This is a cigar box covered in old book pages....with a lil Marie Antoinette.
My bloom painting and a love jar.
Here is my idea section...just an old fence with clothespins holding up all my favorite stuff. I had a postcard done of my designs that I sent to lots of quilt shops...worked real well...used vista print...cheap and easy!
More items on my idea fence....I love looking at it.
Here is a fairy like mermaid above my desk....made by my pal Sue Burger.
I have to keep thread at my desk cause I am always sewing up something while my computer fights with me. It is finally winning...going to need a new one soon.
I found his Eiffel tower mug at a thrift store, perfect for pens, brayers, and pencils.
Thread for my sewing machine...I love having lots of color choices. I keep my light box here to transfer embroidery designs.
My shelf by my sewing machine has lots of buttons, dolls, a crown, chicks, and threads.
I love this flash card sign I made.
HOOPS... I love framing stitcheries in hoops...so cool!
My mom....she was lovely!
Mr. Winter...I never made him into a pattern...he is one of a kind.
This is a new project I am working on.....not finished yet.
