Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
Ok, I have a confession. My studio looks so clean and organized because many of my art supplies live in the office just across the hall. Here's a shot taken tonight from the office doorway into the studio. Yes, the garden gate is on the wall! She's not decorated yet though. I have family in town right now so no studio time this week.
Here's a shot of my half of the office from the doorway. It is still a bit messy today. I had to empty the closet this week to install organizers. Up until this morning, the room was filled with containers, art supplies, school projects - anything that lived in the closet. I keep my sewing machine, cricket and paint supplies here. This was my original craft space. Now it is a secondary work space for me when I am sewing, painting or custom cutting paper.
There is still a small pile on Shelby's crate but I think you can see it has come together this evening. The closet has double glass doors which means you can only access one side at a time.The right side is mostly paper, ribbon, stamps, ink and a variety of chipboard, cardboard, canvas, etc. that I use for crafts.
The left side holds wreath making supplies, paper clay, my storage cabinet for smalls, glues, punches, a few Xmas supplies and my storage totes. It also has a small table or work surface. Having this closet allows me to store most of my pretty vintage supplies in the studio and then keep my everyday items here. That's my secret. Once the drapes are in and the gate is decorated. I will give you a full studio tour and show you some of the supplies I've collected. Now you know the truth. I am definitely not that neat and organized! I just have lots of room to spread out and hide all my goodies! I hope you have a great week. I'll be working, caring for my son who has a bit of a fever and hoping to squeeze in some more time with my brother and sister in law who are in town.
I will also be joining Tracy for her Macro party on Tuesday. She has a new party where you share photography. This week the theme is macro or close ups. Share a picture that you've taken. Ask for advice and lend advice. Great tool for bloggers and great way to meet new friends. See you there!
