Actually, I create in many different places--in the car, at the doctor's office, outside while watching the kids....well, you get the picture. However, there are some of my creations that I need to actually spread out to do. It used to be on the kitchen counter. My husband knew it was time to move me and my "stuff" when I sort of took over that counter...and then some. So, he built a room downstairs. That room became the project room/den/library/craft room/office/catch-all room. I affectionately call it "my studio" even though my area is officially only a corner of it. It isn't fancy. It isn't organized. It isn't glamorous....BUT it is "my place", and I'm thankful for a spot to putter and work and design and think. (I can also leave it, not pick it up, and just close the door when company comes.)
The walls are a soft green color on the top with wainscoting on the bottom pained a creamy ivory. My vintage jewelry bits are organized in the containers on the right. The chair is old and comfortable and just the right height thanks to my husband shearing the legs a little.
My "studio" has a window that lets in the bright morning sun, so all morning long I can sit and work. I do much of my color matching and fine work in the morning with this good light and while my children are doing their homeschooling not far away outside the door. I'm right there to answer their questions and help them when needed which is convenient for us all. This wreath is a project in the process of being completed. I keep vintage pearls and beads in old sewing machine drawers. The drawers are a pretty way to help keep them organized and on hand when needed.
This clock was a gift from my grandmother. The colors match my studio perfectly and tell me when it is time to take a break from my work and have a cup of tea!
I'm hoping to join the "Where Bloggers Create 2012" blog party. So be sure to go to the link to check out where others create as well. Thank you, Karen, for hostessing this!
