A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Pink Saturday~Lets Have Some Fun

This week has been a very busy one for me. Altho I stated a few weeks back that I no longer wanted to showcase my work on this blog, but instead to leave it on Someplace In Thyme2, I find that my world right now is dominated by rich, dark colors, and sadly no pastels.

These stockings are all a special order from a customer and therefore they are already sold. I still have two more to make. These seemed like the perfect fit for Pink Saturday, so I hope you enjoy what I am showing you this week.

As most of you know, I am a floral designer and have said many times that I love to work in chaos! HA! Well, I took a big step of faith and am going to show you just what I mean. After creating three stockings, this is what my work table looks like. YIKES!! :)

I know, it's sad, but it's all me. You can see my little space for doing some actual work. My mother has no idea how I can do anything with all the mess around me, but it works. After I finish up the next two stockings, I will fold and put everything away, clean and be ready for the next round. Even the mess fits the theme of today......lots of pinks there!!!
Thank you Ms. Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for once again bringing us all together and making it looks so effortless. Be sure to check out all the pinkie participants this week HERE. And don't forget to get those mamos girlfriends.

And I thought that I was the only one who created a mess when creating! LOL!

I love your beautiful stockings and the pretty pink fabric and images are wonderful.

Hi Char :) Your work table looks just like my Victorian Bed right now...I have fabrics strewn EVERYWHERE on it! I should clean it up, but I'm still working on a couple of stockings that I will list on Ebay in the next few days...your buyer is going to love the pretty stockings you've made for them :) So pretty in pink!

Have a great weekend!!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Hi Char,
Your stockings are simply scrumptious, my friend! How I wish I could sew! I think if I invested in a sewing machine I just might try my hand at it. There are so many lovely Christmas stockings being shared on blogs these days and they have me drooling. I love your work! Happy Pink Saturday.

Oh Char....the stockings are beautiful. Such creative use of fabric and embellishments! Now about that creative mess....I've made worse, but like you, I clean and re-set, re-vamp and re-load for the next creative projects mess! Happy Pink Saturday...Sue

Hi Char, Your stockings are so pretty. I enjoy looking at what you are doing. I am so glad that I am not the only one who makes a mess when I am working on a project. Have a great weekend. Your Missouri Friend.

I am creating for a big Gift Show I am having.. I could not resist writing to you as I always create best in complete chaos. I like everything out so I can see it all. I never am sure of my trims unless I can see it all and then decide. I have always created this way and I might add - I have created mostly one of a kind things since I was about 9 - so that is 71 years.....I plan on "hanging it up" next year when I am 81. Actually, I will probably never ever not create. At any given time I have dozens of ideas floating around in my brain. Many Blessings to you

Your workspace is immaculate compared to what mine looks like when I am working. Beautiful stockings.

Happy Pink Saturday!


Nancy said...

HPS, Miss Char! What a lovely mess! No wonder your creations are so pretty.

I peeked into your etsy shop, too. I love looking at the tassels.

Jacalyn @ rmebathproducts.com said...

Oh Char that mess is nothing compared to mine, ha! Those stockings are gorgeous!

Happy PS,

Oh my.... that looks JUST like my workspace. I am such a tidy chickie, but when those creative juices are running.... watch out! I end up working in a space that's about 6" x 6". :-)

Warm blessings,

PS.... Your stockings are just lovely.

Char, those stockings are so beautiful, but then all the work you do is beautiful.

Donnie said...

They are so lovely. I seem to spread out all over the place too. Happy Pink Saturday!

Char, your stockings are lovely. I can certainly understand the ability to make a mess in your work space. I have seen worse, believe me - and that would be mine. I love the folded fabric you have on the table. Looks like you are going to be one busy lady for a while.

Sandy~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

Hi Char, Still making my rounds after being away for awhile. The things that are on your header are gorgeous.... the fabric you use on your stocking are very pretty. Hey, your studio is not bad compared to my bedroom sometimes. When I'm trying to figure out what to wear for an outing my bed is no longer what it's suppose to be and it's left there until I get home because I usually run a little late. What a thing to get back too.... I need some hired help sometimes.

HPS and enjoy your Weekend*
