Hey hey there bloggers! One day my little Studio will be finished (but that’s not today!)
First of all welcome, especially if you are first timers! I am so excited to share my latest revisions in my studio for todays blog hop “Where bloggers Create”!
This is not my first time doing this blog hop but I do have some major changes in my room. If you love looking into others work spaces like me, you will love this blog hop – there are hundreds to choose from and you can’t possibly get to them in one day! No worries, links are up all year on Karens blog My Desert Cottage! Of course every time I go visit all those blogs I find a ton of things to change in my space!
Please bookmark my site to come back later, maybe visit my gallery so samples of what I do. I am a mixed media artist and illustrator. You can see some of my work around my space. In this pic(above) the girl sleeping and the girl by the “R” are my original art. My blog/website is full of tutorials for mixed media, scrapbooking, altered items, ETC. So please take a look around! I also recently opened an ETSY shop I am working on adding more items in there so please check it out!
So on with the tour! When you walk through the double doors of my “Studio” this(above) is the wall to your right. I have altered several Alex drawers from IKEA, stacked them (tutorial on the 18th!) and still need one more to finish this wall. As you can see I have a slanted ceiling so I do have a little dead space (which drives me crazy!) I don’t know what to do with in the corner. I painted the tall cabinet/shelf as well – hubby found it! It was going in the trash!! I cleaned it up and painted it- good as new! I repainted the wall from orange to gray – yes I know it looks white, I wish I could say it looked gray in real life but no, it came out white. After putting all together though, I am OK with it. Here are some peeks to the drawers…
A close up of half of this wall. I painted all of my cabinets form the local supply store. I made that blue shelf and am in the process of making another one in place of the hanging art (3 of the 4 are my original work, the one that is green and black is Kellie Rae Roberts (Love her!) I will be making a DIY post about it soon!
I love my Raskog utility cart(Ikea)…It has odds and ends of mixed media supplies that I can choose from, wheels make it easily accessible!
I had to add this smaller Expedit cubbie from Ikea to house all of my DCWV paper they sent my these past two years!(Thank you DCWV!) Behind this cubbie is my desk and the back wall where you can see my fairies!
Right next to me are my most used items – hello Faber- Castell Design Memory Craft!
In the cubbies are most current DCWV Stacks, Alphas, Stencils, all kinds of goodies no crafter should be without! Separated by what it it is – like chipboard, cutters, flowers (big and small) fabrics, texture mediums, glues the list goes on and on! So there you have it! I hope you enjoyed my little tour and hope you come visit again soon!
