The many studios of Joey...

Living rooms are silly; but not when you turn them into a studio.

I bought the vintage dining room table for $20.00,  the chair came from Homegoods and rest of the furniture was from Ikea.

Creative Chaos in action

When I start I new project, coffee is usually involved...that and as you can see...a lot of craft supplies and vintage junk.

This is what came out of that creative mess.

I was given the chance to explain how to create dolly mama pillows in Art Doll Quarterly Magazine Winter 2018. Woo Hoo!

This studio made it onto the cover of "Where Women Create"..

This WAS the cover...May 2014

My shabby chic phase. Everything in my studio was either found on the street, bought at a junk shop with a splatter of Target.

This is Puddles, Yorkshire of Terrier, a.k.a. sewing assistant.

My everyday reality...

Being creative is messy business!

Another Living room studio 2010...

I call this modern vs. side of the road design.

I am big fan of working with what you have and if that doesn't work...Ikea can fill in!  My studio/office is my happy place...no rules!

This was my "display everything at once phase".

The metal dolly mamas sitting and standing on the shelves pretty much paid for this house and my studio.

The dolly mama crafting book "beads" was created from this studio.

Between you and me...I wish I could re-write it.  I guess we feel this way about your lives sometimes!  Time to let that shit go!

My first "real" studio...

The first metal dolly mamas were made here.

It WAS ALWAYS a creative mess!

I loved my 1950's outdoor table desk.

At the time I lived in an old farm house with a third floor.  I had a real studio, office and even a bathroom like a real grown-up!

My first dolly mama trade show.

They were originally cut out of roof flashing and if I remember correctly, I used my daughters poster paint!
