I don't normally participate in blog parties, but I'm really looking forward to this one. Karen Valentine from My Desert Cottage in Arizona has invited us all to the most gorgeous blog party, where we all get to 'drop in' to visit each others' studios/work spaces where we create. This is the second annual blog party that Karen has organised, I missed the first one and have been waiting patiently for this on e to come around. All you have to do, is share photos of your spot in your world, where your creations are made. Go and check out Karen's blog. You just might be inspired to join the fun and share your creative space too. I'll definitely be participating in this wonderful event on 19th June, 2010. Mmmm......now to just get my studio finished and organised enough to share with the rest of the world. If you don't believe me, just have a look at these photos and you'll realise just how much work I have to do in a very short space of time. I recently moved all of my 'stuff' down into our double garage. The walls are dark brick so we decided to paint the room all white to brighten and lighten the space.
These are the shelves that DH had built for my original studio upstairs; we re-situated them to display some of my supplies. Seeing them, reminds me to use them!!! LOL.
This section is very temporary. I still haven't decided what sort of shelving will go here. I need to wait to see how the rest of the room comes together before making a decision. I do know that the window will get a new silver/grey coloured aluminium blind. Ideally, I'd love some sort of kitchen bench with a sink, but I think that might be just a bit too much to ask for.
These boxes hold some of my supplies and all of my mounted stamps. My UM stamps are stored in the A4 folders. The stamp boxes will be placed on top of 2 Ikea 'Expedit' 4X2 units and the filing cabinets will sit underneath a workbench that will be where I can stand up to work while using some of my larger tools - heat gun, guillotine, Cricut, Wizard etc.
These shelves will be replaced with some of the 'Billy' range from Ikea. Each unit will have glass doors covering the bottom half, while still allowing me to see what's stored in each unit.
This table will be replaced by a work bench that will enable me to stand while doing some of my work. I'll probably buy an office stool for the bench as well. The shelves in front of the garage door will be replaced by a 5X5 Ikea 'Expedit' unit with a TV and DVD player so I can watch my 'arty' DVDs while I work.
