Recently I posted a picture of my studio in it's clean state, but it wasn't, and isn't always in that shape.
Today, I thought I would show you a "real look" inside my studio. It's easy to only post pictures of the beautiful things, but lets face it, those of us that have our spaces to create in, know first hand how out of control things can become in a hurry.
I would like to invite you into my world for a real first hand look into my space. So, I am being brave and sharing the "real deal", and a way for you to get to know me better. Better grab a cuppa or two, this is a LONG post....I think you will enjoy it in the end:)
It takes alot of things to bring a project to fruition, and when we are riding our creative wave, it's easy to have piles of things going on, all at once, and It can become a disaster zone in no time!
This is the work table, so many piles.....
Baskets of ribbons and vintage lace, were once organized and neatly stacked, not anymore...
Craziness and clutter everywhere the eye can see!!!!
Out of control!!! Soooo, time to get things cleaned up and organized, to free my mind from this cluttered nightmare, and regain clarity and creative momemtum once more. Everything was scattered throughout the entire room, making no sence, no rhyme or reason. MaDnEss!!!
Old film containers and vintage cigar boxes, house and contain each organized grouping of metals,chipboard diecuts,and sparkle stickies,and little collected treasures.
This bookshelf corner has now become the shipping area, paints have been organized with canvases, and my clear boxes are filled with stamps and inks,extra paper,and future projects. I like the clear ones, because I can see what's in there. The lockers are great for holding fragile items like lamps for sale in the shoppe, and finished projects for bazzar's and craft shows. Books are organized better now too!
My Halloween area is up year round for inspiration of my favorite holiday...
And there it is! All clean! While I KNOW I have alot of things in here, it's all my favorite things, a hoarders paradise of creativity and wonderful beginnings. I hope you enjoyed the tour of my studio space. Now you know, it's not going to stay like this for long... LOL!
But that's the fun part, making a creative mess and starting the process all over again!
Have a Fabulous Day!!!
