For years and years I’ve dreamt of having a craft room of my own set up so I could easily paint or sew. I envisioned having the whole room organized.

I started with a new paint job, then added a bright LED light. Then I made some matching covers for my machines and tables.

A clipboard for projects, a blackboard for reminders and a wireless speaker for some tunes.

I love it.

Ball’s Falls Welcomes Perfect Pockets

I’m designing and creating every Perfect Pocket that I can these days; the Grimsby Festival of Arts is less than a month away (it’s September 6 and 7) and as well as my oil paintings, prints and tiles I want to take as many Perfect Pockets as I can with me for that 2 day weekend event.

But every good girl needs a day off once in a while so Larry and I recently packed up a few of my finished Pockets, and headed off for a hike at Niagara’s well know Ball’s Falls, home of one of the first woolen mills in southern Ontario. We had a great hike both up to the upper falls and down to the lower falls while my pockets got to show off a bit on  the gorgeous sunny day.

Why not visit my Etsy store to see more of my creations. You will find them at Etsy.com/MarilynVanstone

Here’s what’s coming up for Perfect Pockets

I’ve almost caught up with costumes for the year-end shows at  Artist’s Play Dance School and my understanding accounting clients are up-to-date as well. Now I move on to 2 sets of draperies for RV’s and my true loves, my perfect pockets and maybe even some time to get out the easel and some brushes and move some paint around.

Here’s the fabrics soon to be Perfect Pockets. I’m working on these now.

You can shop them all at my Etsy Store

A Perfect Pocket For Summer


I’ve added an adjustable strap to this one thinking it should work better for all our different sizes. This one too is available on Etsey

I Live For Satisfied Customers

A lovely lady named Candace saw a post about Perfect Pocket on Larry’s blog  Amazing Vanstones.com and became an early purchasor.

Here’s Candace’s comments:

  1. I LOVE that saying from Pablo Picassso! … and I have a story about him. Many years ago, when growing up in Puerto Rico, we lived near him. I don’t remember the whole story, so will have to talk to Mom about it, but the saying is so right-on.

    Similar to “What you think about, you BRING about” from I don’t know who – but it’s good :) and “Thoughts BECOME things, so choose the good ones” (c) http://www.TUT.com …. I could go on and on, but that wisdom is out there for everyone to capture in their own way … and that’s exciting !

    That gorgeous spring green and purple Perfect Pocket is MINE! I’m sooo happy with it, Marilyn selected a material that is sooo ME :)

    My Samsung Note II fits in the PP still in the small case the phone stays in AND I keep my important debit cards in the case. Receipts and business cards fit in the inside pouches and a spare key in the zipper pouch, so I am good to go at all times.

    The strap is long enough that I can put it over my shoulder when walking or bicycle riding, and when I need to carry a bigger tote, the Perfect Pocket goes right in without taking up too much room.

    GREAT JOB Marilyn :) …. It’s PERFECT !

    Thanks Candace
