New Crystal for my Window

I have a dear friend who gave me a very special gift.  He gave me a paper towel wrapped around something heavy.  It was one of the most beautiful crystals that I’ve ever seen.  He knows how much I love crystals & that I have a window full of them.  When the sunlight shines through my crystals, it fills my craft room with the most beautiful rainbows that you could imagine.  The sight of those rainbows inspire me, every day.

The Sewing/Craft Room Window

My sewing/craft room is very small.  It’s only 6′ x 7′.  Everything in the room is small, including the window.  But it’s one of the first things that I see when I walk into the room.  The walls are white, but because of that little window, when the sun shines in, I have a lilac glow through the whole room.  And on a sunny day, I have rainbows dancing on the walls.  I thought I’d invite you in to my little sanctuary to see part of my little piece of Heaven.

Welcome to Creatively Sam’s:

This is the tiny window in my sewing/craft room.

I wanted to add some privacy, but I needed the sun to shine in.  I chose to make a lace curtain with an open pattern.  I only used one panel because I didn’t want folds to block the sunlight.

Then I made curtains and a valance from Lilac Satin.

I added Curtain Tie Backs to keep the curtains open so the sun can shine through.  (I’ll be doing a tutorial on how I made them)

So that I could have the rainbows dancing in the room, I added a white tension bar. (I painted the brass that was on it with acrylic paint)  From the tension bar, I strung crystals from fishing line.  They seem to hang in mid-air.

I been fascinated by the rainbows that come from crystals since I was a kid & saw the Disney movie Pollyanna. (that movie had a great impact on me)  They put me in a creative mood & bring me such an inner peace.

Hope you enjoyed the first glimpse into my new Sewing/Craft Room.
