Where Women Create

I have bracelet orders to fill which is timely as we're saving for Squam. Robert took Satch next door to our neighbor's house to see her coy pond while I finished working on the bracelets. My studio still isn't completely together and I had to search through a box to find my sandpaper. There are a small piles of things on my desk that need to be sorted and put away. There are still a few boxes in the closet. It's getting there though....little by little it's starting to feel like home. I finally got around to wiring the sound system last eve so now we can dance with wild abandon.




























































































When setting up my work space, I refer to this book for inspiration. Some of the studios in this book are so cool, I just have to sigh.

How about sharing pics of your work space?

Have a good weekend!

Oh, and I must also say that this is inspiring me to work (again) on setting up a better space to work. I have an extra bedroom right now that is our 'craft room', but includes kids computer, legos table, work table, storage for all our craft supplies and fabric...and NO space for painting. We have carpet, so I get a bit...um...discouraged! :) Love your table in the top pic.

Love the hanging buttons! it's good to know too that i'm not the only one who organizes my buttons by color. I think it's the only thing in my house that i would call organized. :-)

Thank you all, seriously. We were told it was the "family room" but felt it would make a better studio as we are not very formal people and like the living room to be for...well...living. And that includes most of Satchel's toys since he lives here too, lol. So since there is a combined living/play room, that frees up space for a studio.

More pics of the new temporary nest soon.

By the way, Veronica, I've seen your creative closet and it totally rocks!

Great space and I L-O-V-E that old gate!

me too :-) i first saw a similar gate in 1995 and i just fell in love with it...so quaint. i drew sketches of it in my journal. i kept my eyes open for one when i wandered the flea markets, junk shops and antique stores in nyc. then some years later i saw almost the exact one for sale...so i bought it. i was originally going to use it as a pot rack in my kitchen, but it's just so cute that i didn't want to hang anything on it.

Oh! I love your workspace.
I love the gate and the buttons as well. I am on the hunt for an old door to hanging horizontally over my bed, like a head board. I love old things. As you say, so quaint.
