It ONLY Took Two Days.....

to get the studio this clean! It is so pleasant to work in here when everything is in it's place. We even did all the drawers and the walk in supply closet. It's like we just moved in. Blaise is going to repaint the floor for me while I am in Florida as it takes 3 days or so to dry.

This is my side (pictures are clickable) where you can see two of my favorite things in the world - my Janome 6600P and my IPOD I Home. I love sitting in here working on my projects and listening to music depending upon my mood - Mozart, Green Day, Yanni, Tokio Hotel, Bon Jovi, Poison, the Beatles..... talk about atmosphere - it rocks in here!

My husband made the countertops just the right size for Sabrina and I. We are both short so they are a bit lower to the ground and are just right. For my smaller quantities of fabric - I used Sabrina's baby bookshelves. Larger quantities and bolts of fabric and batting are inside that closet you see pictured.

Over to the left - is the "messy" side. It's not messy right now -= but this is the place we both do all of our painting, stamping, cutting, gluing, burning, heating, etc. It can get pretty nasty on this side.

Here is Sabrina's little corner of the world - her drawing corner. She's got it all fixed up and even made little containers for all of her different pencils out of plastic cups so she can have them separated by type of pencil, color, etc. She keeps her rapidographs, sketchbooks, and paints in the plastic drawers to the left.
We love our little studio and it's nice and tidy now so I thought I would share it with those of you who haven't seen it. Hope you enjoyed visiting.

It looks dreamy in here. I love an organized work space too, but I know how messy it can get. A messy desk is the result of a creative mind, or something like that. Your colors are so exciting.

ohmygod to die for! this is so cool. I enlarged each photo to see details. you are so lucky to have this wonderful place just for your art making. I am SO impressed.
I think I see some of my art there too, is that possible? An ATC on the desk under glass? Maybe?

Having a clear up is good for the soul and makes you feel in control for a short while ... hope it inspires your creativity

Doesn't it feel great to clean, get reorganized and have everything in it's place again...for awhile! ;-) Looks great!!! A fresh painted floor will be a nice treat when you return too!

Missed your last post...more beautiful little pieces of art. Have a great time getting away and seeing your dad...sounds like a special time for you both!

Have a safe and fun trip, Cathie! XOXO ~Lisa

I hope I can keep a neat work room once I have one. Right now it's just the dining room table and it's messy!

Love your work space. How easy was it to build your sewing station?

What wonderful artwork, and space in which to do it!
It all is so neat, tidy, organized. Your floor doesn't look needy to me!

I just fired off 4 (!) Girlfriends Sketchbooks to you. Looks like you'll be all set up and ready to start when you get back.
Key Largo,,wow. Great times there, enjoy it,and your Dad.

Wow what a great working area! Unfortunately, I share my "studio" with the washer & dryer, but it's home--kwim?
