Welcome to my Art Studio!!! Please come in and visit for awhile. This is my "HAPPY PLACE". This is were I spend quite a bit of my time :O)
My studio has had several re-dos since we have moved to this state...but, I am a firm believer if your tools don't work...get new ones. Since, my space wasn't working.....I have rearranged until it works. Now I am very happy with the space and where all my supplies are :O)
The room measures 16x22 feet. It used to be the master bedroom...but my sweet Hubby suggested I take it over for my art room. It is the largest room in the house. (I have a great Hubby)
I will pan around the room first, then I will go in for closer shots and show you how I organize.
On this Ikea I keep all my quilt books. In the buckets are scraps, lace, and pre-cut strips. The clear boxes above are my UFO quilt projects.....and the cutting board is right here in front.
On this Ikea I keep my fabric on the top 2 rows , and my batting is up above everything. While my paper products for journals and book making are below. You can also see my rubber stamp collection. (hubby made the stand for me)
My newly painted art desk, and my new paper tape stand. I like to have all my stuff close at hand. It makes the creative process flow better... ..stopping to find things....can really rob the creative flow.
My desk turned out just yummy!!! I love it!! You can see all my paints and sprays on the side desk too.
On this side of the room you will find my biggest passion... FABRIC!!! and my sewing machines!! There is fabric behind the doors on the fabric stand too. You can also see my planning boards tucked away on the left..just waiting to be needed. I have a tutorial on how I made them here under my tutorial button.
I like to keep my ribbons and trims out so I can see them.
Oh...my girls!!! I can't go a day with out hearing them hum.....(I'm talking about my sewing machines:):) You can also see my new collection of baby sewing machines. I have been picking them up when I see them.
I really like my little things well organized..here you can see my buttons in sugar jars, and in the draws are my glues, more paints, tools, and my ironing board. I just lay it on my cutting table when I need it.
I have this double door into the room..and I wanted to make use of it. So, I put more planning boards on them to store blocks I'm working on and important info I need to see and not lose. The door can still open if I need it to. And behind the other door..I put command strip hooks to hold my rulers.
I have a closet that I decked out with supplies as well :):)
My most favorite re-do is my new art desk!! I store all my paper art supplies here. You can see my art journals on the bottom 2 shelves. I work on my computer and draw here.
I also decoupaged my ceiling fan too :O) :O)
I have sewing/art companions who are always in my room when ever I am.....
Bella, Zoey, and Daisy...they are always ready to help with anything that hits the floor :):)
Well, that is my HAPPY place...I hope you all enjoyed your visit!! I love to share my art and my process anytime. Come and see me again. Please let me know how you liked your visit. I always respond to every comment. They always make my day :O)
...here is one last photo...Me and my fur babies!!!
Until next time... many poodle kisses from us :O)
