My Studio :)

I absolutely love seeing where artist's create their bears and such. Looking into their lovely studios, everything so pretty and organized. Always makes me feel like creating just looking into their creative spaces! Soooo I thought I would share MY 'studio' with you so you could get a peek into my creative 'space' :)
Below is my designing, tracing and cutting out table. It is also my paint booth and other various stages of my creating goes on here as well. This table is also known kitchen table. (Uhh..Please ignore the pop tart crumbs...thanks)
Below you will find an absolute work horse..a.k.a my fantastic antique portable Singer sewing machine. I simply cannot imagine sewing on anything else! I love you little sewing machine!This is my office assistant, Link...a.k.a my lap warmer :)
Oh would you look at that! My assistant asleep on the job...I'll have to have a word with him later....the slacker...
We have now arrived to my sewing station, where I do all my hand sewing, needle and scissor sculpting, stuffing and other general creativeness....a.k.a my living room couch. It's great and there's no assembly required! And look at the fabulous built in pin cushion...Yes I know! And might I mention comfy as well! (The blur you see below is my assistant, umm..bathing himself..this is not acceptable...not acceptable at all!)
And there you have it, my creative spaces! I hope you've enjoyed the tour and before we leave I thought I would also throw in a tiny sneak peek at the fur I will be using for my next bear :)
Bye bye now!
Hugs, Kimi :)

~Strauss~ My first bear of 2011!

I know, right?! I can't believe it either! I finally finished a bear! LOL! It's only been 3 1/2 months or so! hee hee! Anyways, here he is, my first bear of the new year :) I started this fellow back in November of last year. It's a really good thing my bears are as patient as they are :) He is listed now on ebay with no reserve for 5 days.
