Me Time


Every year I put a lot of time and effort into decorating our home for the holidays.
By the time I get around to doing something for my studio I have run out of steam.
I know I could just hang a wreath on the door and call it good but for some reason I feel  a wreath on my studio door is just not creative enough - on a studio door it might even be considered boring. 


 I always end up doing nothing...I guess that would be NO creativity and REALLY boring.


Doing nothing might not be so bad if I still had the beautiful old original doors.
Nothing says ugly and uninviting as an aluminum door.

This past week while shopping in Minneapolis I spotted a manikin 
all decked out in Christmas attire setting in front of a clothing store. 
She was so stickn' cute that I decided I must make one for the studio. 
If I was up to speed on technology I would have been able to snap a picture
 from my cell phone for all of you to see.


 Unfortunately my sad little dated phone does not have those capabilities - but I keep her because 
I like her. She is my favorite color 
and it still works for its original intended purpose...to call for help when I am stranded on the highway.


 Yesterday I decided to take a half of a day off for some Me time to make a festive manikin for my studio.
I had a manikin as I sometime use one for market display.


Instead of using fresh greens for my lady's skirt as the shop in Minneapolis did, I opted to use parts of a vintage white Christmas tree that I purchased a couple of years ago at a vintage shop.


 I really wanted one of those vintage Christmas corsages 
your grandmother used to wear on her coat lapel during the holiday season. 
If you have time to spare you can buy this corsage here.


I could not find one in the local antique shops 
and I did not want to wait for one to arrive via mail 
so I opted to make my own with ribbon, greens, and bulbs.



 The shop in Minneapolis used burlap for their bodice. I made my bodice from a vintage piece of velvet. I was trying to have a Project Runway moment by draping the fabric on the manikin. They make it look so easy on PR. Well not so. I struggled. I added rosettes  along the seam line of the skirt to cover up the raw edge as no sewing was used on this dress - just pins. Joy - yes I have named her Joy - worried that the rosettes would make her hips look big - I assured her they did not.



Here she is all finished and looking very festive for the holiday season.
In my opinion Joy is not boring.
She makes me smile every morning as she greets me at my studio door.



What has made you smile lately?
Leave a comment telling me what has made you smile lately and you will be eligible to win a Merry Medley Charm Pack™ and the pattern to make this tiny tree using the Charm Pack. It is super easy and  there is still plenty of time to get it done to enjoy during the holidays. If you don't get it done this year - well Christmas will come again.

Keep smiling.
From my Heart,
Sandy

  3. Your Joy really made me smile, really unique and creative. I also smile when the big bluebird comes to the tree and calls out to me, since the feeder was empty. I think all of the birds have figured out who feeds them and they let me know when they want more.

  23. Releasing 10 orange balloons on what would have been our oldest son's 10th Birthday (Nov. 29th) made me smile. It's our tradition to go to his grave and release orange (his favorite color) balloons. We imagine God grabbing them and giving them to Ethan. :) What could have been a super sad day ended up being a blessed family day, and we have peace knowing he's with Jesus.

    Merry Christmas, Sandy! I LOVE your studio!!! What a gorgeous buidling!!! I also am in awe of your genius creativity in your creation of Joy--she's simply beautiful! And I SOOOO want to make that cute tree from charms!!! It looks so fun and would fit my decor wonderfully! Blessings!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Joy is wonderful. How fun to see her each day. I saw a friend today who I hadn't seen in months. That made me smile!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have an old style phone too--but always have a small camera at the bottom of my purse! Joy is a beautiful lady--her rosettes rock, and the skirt is fab. Nothing that creative in my studio!

    I recently smiled today while at the garden center. A tiny towheaded girl decided to perch on the feet of a giant polar bear display and her daddy whipped out his phone to take her pic. Adorable!

  30. The thing that has made me smile lately, and keep on smiling, is when my 6 year old grandson, got down on one knee last week in a restaurant while waiting for the Santa parade to start, and asked me to marry him! He had just gotten a huge monster ring out of some game he was playing, and he had that in his hand for me!! What a hoot he is. This is the same little boy that asked me last year to come to his school so I could be his show and tell. I have a huge smile on my face as I type this! I am so lucky!!!
    JOY looks great-well done!

  36. Joy is very festive!! You were so creative in using the tree for the skirt.

    Lots of things have made me smile lately. The best has been someone telling me "thank you" for helping through something at work. It wasn't a big deal to me, but it was to them and knowing they appreciated it made me smile.

    Thanks!

  45. Being able to travel to be with my grown children and their families makes me smile this time of the year. Knowing I finished everything on my "to-do list" makes me smile. Finding the perfect gift for my husband, really makes me smile. Seeing unique and ingenious Christmas decor like "JOY" makes me smile and a mild Christmas Eve night with giant snowflakes drifting lazily to the ground makes my smile so wide, it almost breaks out into a giggle. Merry Christmas!

  64. I am smiling right now because I just returned from a shopping trip with a friend to buy clothes, food, toys and a Christmas tree for a young family who would not have had a Christmas this year -- what a joy to be able to do this! And, of course, your blog posts ALWAYS make me smile!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love what you made, Joy looks great and very festive.

  66. Wow Joy. What a babe! Love her outfit. My kids make me smile. We recently met for dinner and I was amazed how much they're growing up to become "functional adults" !! yay!

  67. We found a house to buy...5 days ago. I haven't stopped smiling!

    ReplyDelete
  68. What made me smile was my 30 year old son coming to pick up his box of ornaments that I collected for him as he was growing up. He needed them to decorate his tree at his new house. As he opened the box, he picked one up and said "Mom, do you remember when you gave this one to me?" Never thought he would remember the story behind each one but he did. It truly brought happiness to my heart and a smile to my face. Merry Christmas, Sandy.

  73. What made me smile? Well, being the recipient of a random act of kindness. I went to my mailbox to find it festooned in fresh greenery and a big red bow...I have no idea who did it. Wouldn't it be fun to make bunches of those little trees and secretly give those to others?

    ReplyDelete

  76. I have the flu. My husband has the flu and now he has bronchitis ,too. He's coughed all night long for 3 nights so not much has made me smile in the last few days. But today our cat ( who seems to be confused that we're not sleeping at normal times) came strolling in with her toy mouse in her mouth. I had never seen her carry it from one room to another before and I thought she looked really cute. I smiled. Later I told hubby about it and he smiled, too.

  81. My 23-year-old son recently moved out on his own. I smile each time he calls me with inquiries. So far, he's asked how to scramble eggs in a microwave, if it was safe to eat bread after picking off moldy bits, and the strangest regarded a bit of slime oozing from his bath faucet. I had a feeling that the sacrificial rod in his water heater was to blame for the slime. I Googled the matter to ensure I was correct before passing on that bit of information. :-)

  82. Wow! That mannequin is just adorable and beautiful at the same time! Well aside from winning your charm pack, which would make me smile, I received a big order from The Fat Quarter Shop that had me all smiles this week! Happy Holidays!

  84. I just love your Joy!!! She would make me smile too. A couple years ago I went into a bead store in Rochester, MN and saw several glitzy women, each made from straw brooms. The straw part was the head with eyes, nose and mouth. They were adorned with clothes and boas. I loved them and talked about them so much my hubby made me one and she stands in my sewing room.

  95. I was at the home of my niece and her family last night for a little family music making and to celebrate her youngest son's 8th birthday. Everyone brought their instruments, and watching (and listening) to her two sons and their 13 year-old cousin playing guitars and violin with the adults made me smile. It was a wonderful way to celebrate family and the holidays.

  112. 2-yr.old granddaughter doesn't like Santa. Her other grandmother took her to the mall to see if maybe she would go. Santa gave her a candy cane but baby velcroed herself to g'mother and refused to go. She did, however, hand back the candy cane. Taking baby away, Santa once again gave her the candy. After walking a safe distance down the mall, littel one was heard to say "Bye-Bye Santa. Candy cane." Wish I could have been there.

  116. LOTS of things make me smile, but I had to smile & chuckle to see I'm not the only one with a dinosaur phone!! At the time, red was not available (my favorite color also) so I got pink! That IS a light red, right? Love the manequin - now I must find more appropriate clothes than just a the vintage nightgown mine is wearing!

  118. Love your Christmas ideas! Thank you for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Joy is wonderful, so creative! My favorite smile for this week was when Santa came to visit our classroom of mentally challenged children. One little girl quietly went up to him to play with the tassel on his hat. When he was getting ready to leave she said "Santa Clause" with her rough little voice. She doesn't normally speak!

  123. I was hospitalized for an emergency condition 3 days ago - shocker for everybody especially me -- and I got to come home today! WOOHOO!

  124. I saw your mannequin on Pat Sloan's blog. Had to come over to check it all out. Your Christmas tree is gorgeous.
    As to what mad me smile - well, my house is almost done. carpets, metal roof, tape and texturing, garage and sidewalks. Sounds like a lot to do, but I have been waiting for 7 years to move out of the house we rent and into our house. Even slogging in the mud, sloppy, ugly sticky, adobe mud, didn't stop me from smiling today.

  125. I know the contest is long since over but I just wanted to tell you how lovely Joy looks. Hope you had a Merry Christmas
