Where Bloggers Create 2012

Oh it's here, it's here!
Where Bloggers Create 2012 Hosted by Karen Valentine

If you are new to Our blog..we are so happy you are here.
The Olde Messy Bucket is a dream of 2 friends that share a passion for crafting and hoarding collecting ole vintage everything!

We are MaryJo and Cyn who reside in Arizona.
Enjoying this journey together.

We decided to show you around BOTH of our craftrooms. We do get to create in each others craftrooms and snoop look through each others treasures.

First up is MaryJo

 Baskets of vintage laces..oh what heaven!

Hand stitched crazy quilt pieces. MaryJo has these hanging on a beautiful green wall. Such beauty!

This is in front of MaryJo's workspace. Such goodness all at her finger tips.

The craft table. I LOVE that she uses a fishing tackle box to store goodies!! I'm going to have to go find me one at a yard sale. :)

More vintage lace and lots of books and scrapbook paper. MaryJo has ALOT of neat stuff that was her moms. Lots of goodies!

Now  for Cyn's Craftroom

I have my crafting and sewing machine on one table

I love storing stuff in metal buckets.

 I LOVE galvanized anything!! I also collect other peoples relatives LOL

MaryJo and I are SO glad you came to visit our blog we are just getting started on.
We will be posting more things as we create them. We also take custom orders!
So come back often!

We are having a GIVEAWAY!
To say THANKS for stopping by.

We are giving away a Prim Star Bowl Filler. You could also use as a shelf tuck.
Created by hand.
