Hi again to all of you studio voyeurs! I have to say this is my favorite link party. A huge thank you to Karen for hosting every year! My studio takes up essentially the same space as last year but since revision is pretty constant I wanted to share it again. Disclaimer: it is never as clean as in these pictures (I know we can all probably say that)! Above is the view when you are standing in the middle of the room looking in. The rolling chest in the foreground (see more here) is full of Halloween and Christmas embellishments. The large red/brown chest in the back is also full of various necessary items (stickers, rub-ons, ephemera, paint, string…). On top of that sits an old apothecary with some lower shelves removed in order to store all my 12×12 papers. The door at the back leads to a closet stretching the whole width of the room (also full!). Yikes! I may need an intervention… I spend a lot of time sitting at the computer and my little furry helper sits in that chair. You can see the edge of my easel sticking out on the left and there are french doors behind it.
This is the view if you stand in the middle and look back out the door (that hall leads to the laundry room which is convenient for multitasking housework in the event that I ever remember to put a load in the washer). The table is my paper-crafting workspace. All the cubbies and drawers seem like chaos but I actually do know where most stuff is, providing I remember I have the item in the first place. 🙂 On the shelves on the right I have all my dies in those six lower baskets and all my craft reference books above and to the left in the shorter set of cubbies. Glass topped bins of trims and vintage embellishments next to that yellow cabinet which itself holds assorted acrylic paints.
I think Karen mentioned that if she couldn’t see it she would forget she had it. I agree 1 million percent. The glass bins above are an attempt to be able to see all the little bits of vintage embellishment but I thwarted myself by continual acquisition! Oh well, at least I can see some of it.
So that is mostly it for the main studio room. I have another whole room full of supplies and items for my Etsy shop (and a million drawers). It really hasn’t changed much since last year. View it here. As I looked back to link to last years post I realized that WBC 2014 was my first real post. One year of blogging under my belt! Thanks for visiting and thanks for comments! Please continue on to everyone else’s studio and thanks again Karen!
