Where the Magic Happens!

It was just the other day that I realized I had never showed my workshop where all my fun, creative projects happen. So I busted butt and cleaned it up for you guys, and mostly cause it hadn't been truly cleaned in a very...very long time.

Matchless Designs is based out of a small corner in my room, but trust me when I say that it is packed full of good things. A lot of these projects and organizational items you see on display are actually things that I made and some of them have tutorials!

My whole obsession with jewelry and the crafting world began about 6 years ago when I went to the store and couldn't find one accessory that I liked. So, I walked to the bead section and thought "Hmm. This doesn't look that hard". And I never looked back.
To say that I got sucked in is an understatement, it's all consuming!
But it's the funnest hobby I've ever had.

I've dabbled in a little bit of everything. Having grown up in a home where creativity was all around me (it runs in my family), I've tried my hand at sketching, cartooning, painting, sculpting, writing, jewelry, costuming, crafting and so much more.
Pretty much, anything I set my mind to, I set out to do! I have developed this theory that the more you use your creativity, the more you have. It's like a never ending fountain of ideas! And with so many learning resources around like Pinterest, You Tube and Google, how can you go wrong?

ANYWAY, back to my fun workshop.


Yeah I have a huge amount of beads and pretty much everything you could ever think of. I had to redecorate my totes so I didn't look like such a hoarder! haha

On my other shelves, all of my scrapbook, paper, office supplies, printer...all that good stuff. (Can you tell I love black and purple lol)

This is a fun project I made for all my jewelry findings, it makes finding things easy...get it?
Anyway, I took an old cookie sheet, Modge-Podged some fabric to it. Found these fun tins and secured them with magnets. 
It's cute and usable!

I have all sorts of stuff hanging on my walls, but this is one of my favorite projects that I did clear back in the day!

I feel that it's very important to have inspirational quotes where you can see them, to remind yourself of your goals. 
I made this out of an old board, a dollar store white board and some scrapbook paper. 

Well, there you have it, that's where the magic happens; my own little corner of creativity. Had I the room, I fill more and more shelves, but for now, my obsession is tamed to the corner haha

More fun posts to come!
