NOTE: I'm really bummed I don't have any pictures. I'm having a hard time getting them to load. I'll continue to try loading them & hope you'll come back!
Thanks for visiting & make sure you pop over to Karen's blog to see her beautiful space & lots of other creative artists. Thank you Karen for hosting!
This magazine from Stampington & Co is one of my favorites. I draw such inspiration looking at beautiful studios & work areas. Having a creative area is something that fluctuates with each move. We are a military family & move quite often. Just here in Kuwait we have already had an unexpected move to another house. It makes life quite exciting. I've had everything from a corner to an entire room. This past move just got me a room :) It's still a work in progress; I actually just got all the boxes out from the middle of the room so I could take some decent pictures - ha ha!
My "corner" when we lived in Charlottesville
The table is the main area I use. I design my jewelry on the pink tray & most everything is within hands reach. I have some additional storage under the table in clear drawers. I got the spice rack & jars from Ikea. The glass globe was a prize from Katie Runnels. I store baggies of half started projects or components that I plan to make into jewelry. Some of those components have been waiting to be created for years! The right corner of the table has become my photography area. There is an ivory metal accessory I got at Target for $20 (!) with some tulle on top. This window has great lighting. Under the table in one of my bins is the packaging storage - shopping bags, jewelry boxes & rolls of tulle.
Woo hoo, it's a paper cutting area! I keep all the accessories in the drawers. In the last place, my poor Cricut lived on the floor on top of a box.
And a vignette area! The dresser houses my finished jewelry pieces.
The top of the dresser houses my traveling artist statement (it goes to all my craft shows), a gorgeous vintage fashion plate, jewelry from my volunteer work with Trash to Treasure & some of finished pieces on the end (those are the newbies that need to be tagged)
