Sorry to have been away for awhile...but I have been very BUSY! I have been re-vamping and re-orgainizing my Studio! It may not be the most beautiful space...I don't think it would make it into "Somerset Studios"...but I have everything right at hand, out where I can clearly see it. And instead of being hidden away from the rest of the family in an extra bedroom or an out of the way bonus room, I am right in the middle of everything...so I don't miss a thing!
I work from home running my Craft/Party/Ebay/Etsy/Gift Business and my studio is also a creative spot for scrapbooking, sewing, quilting and anything else that gets your creative juices flowing! And the best thing about it is that you can leave right in the middle of a project and return to find it waiting for you! No need to put it all away midstream to use the dining room table! (I did a lot of that over the years!) With a family of seven there was never much "extra" space!
It was a big job! You know how it goes...every time you move one thing around it has a ripple effect...I gave myself until today to have it completed...and it is DONE! Whew!
No excuse now...I must get to work (or should I say play)!
Hope you enjoy the pictures...
This is a picture coming up the stairs to my studio. I try to use that exercise bike...I really do!
Ooops, you caught me with my TV on...I have a Bernina 1090 sewing machine, about 12 years old...it runs like a dream!ooooh fabric...Mason Jars are great for "See-Thru" storage!I hung my ribbon & tulle on tension curtain rods!This window looks out into our Atrium! It is a 4-walled atrium that has windows looking into our kitchen, living room, entry area, and hallway downstairs and upstairs into my studio!
Looking down into the atrium...it was difficult to get a good photo because of all the glare...
This is the view from that same window gazing above the atrium.
My "packing" area...
The view from the window of my packing area...the garden is growing and the Japanese Maple tree is filling out!
This is looking down from the top of the stairs leaving my studio...my african violets are blooming.
In addition to my studio at the top of our stairway...as you come up to the right are my two daughters bedrooms and their bathroom, and to the left is a guest room. My studio is in the center of the upstairs, kind of like a large loft!
Well...there you are...my "Creative Treehouse"!
I hope you enjoyed the tour!
