Show me yours and I'll show you mine - inside Dog-Ma studio

Today I have joined a real world look at artists studios, not the fancy kind you see in magazines, but what someone's workspace REALLY looks like. A project thought up by artist Seth Apter, please visit his blog to see all the artist participating

So, without further delay, here is my space:
My desk, actually pretty clean only because I'm starting a new piece and needed some space to play. This is where most of my mediums, paints, brushes, pens, pencils, sprays, inks, etc. live
This is my wall of fun.. Mostly items I have received from other artists but some I have made.

Next to my desk, a pile of stuff that really should be elsewhere, my ratties, my cubbie storage for papers, embellishments, frames, projects in process.... stuff..
My jewelry stuff, Cricket machine and tea table (please ignore the dis-colored blinds they are cheapo and sunburned and came with the house. I plan on putting up curtains but never seem to find the time. Ok, I'm too lazy to move all the stuff to get to the window.

The closet of terror, mostly have no idea what lives in there, someday I may brave it and find out.
Mr. Tanner eating (not sure he's ever NOT eating)

Miss Nebula, Tanner's girl (don't worry he's fixed) She is also eating, it's the only way I could get her still enough to take a picture.

Some itty bitties for a swap

These are teeny-tiny containers I decorated for an online swap.

 This is a little skinny matchbox doll
 This is done in a little mint tin
and this little guy is in a 1 1/2 inch round tin. 
These were super fun to make too.

ATC's for a swap

Theme is textured with metal elements.  Here are the 3 I made today.

I really like them and have to talk myself into trading them.. is that BAD (said in Doonice voice)???

steampunk chunky page

Playing around with burlap 4 x 4 and ink spray, added a collage of a man, and metal embellishments, the "frame" is an old slide holder and I cut a piece of scrapbook plastic to fit in slots so the man is under the plastic.  I think it turned out pretty well. It's going to one of the ladies in AFA.
