Hi All, I am looking for some inspiration for studio design. My room has been ready to paint and fill with goodies for around 6mths, but I am yet to lock down the builder hubby to finish the project, so while I am patiently waiting I may as well perfect the layout and storage design. Please show me your areas for inspiration. I am currently working from the dining room table and cannot wait to have my own little space. Thanks in advance.  See More

"Hi Kylie - thanks for posting this. I've been using hot water so glad to know I'm not crazy :-). I heat up a large pot of water and dip in my ostrich quills to soften and start them curling, then use a flat iron or curling iron to finish."

Profile Information

I Love Hats Because?
The give an air of mystery to a wearer. I love fashion and no outfit is complete without one.
About Me
I am a stay at home mother of two childeren, a pidgeon pair, two year old and 6 month old. I love being able to be at home with them but I also love that Millinery helps me to fullfil my creative side and helps me to feel valued in other ways. One day I would love to own my own studio and have a Monday to Friday job of making hats.
