I thought I might share my studio with you. It just got a makeover plus I just straightened up so I figured this was as good a time as any to snap a few photos! My craft room is a fairly small extra room in my home. I don't have any windows but there is plenty of lighting so I don't mind so much. It's like a little cocoon where i can hide away and work in peace.
The tour starts from the door (photo 1) and goes to the left (photo 2) where you can see my shipping counter, bead wall, and my paper goods area. The shipping counter (photo 3,4) is where I do all my paperwork and get orders ready to go out. I keep extra supplies in the bins above the counter and I love love love my cabinets which are covered in fabric.
Next we move around to the work area. (photo 5,6,7) You can see all my papers stashed in my awesome cube cubbies, my TV (I love netflix!), and my bead storage drawers. Don't worry, the toaster oven is for craft use only, not lunch. =) I love my little "U" shaped work space. Everything I need is within reach and it has helped streamline my process. The little shelf over the tv has votive cups filled with vintage glass beads I got from my grandmother.
Last I had to show off my big storage cabinets. (photo 8) I know all those shipping boxes are not much to look at but I love the fabric on my cabinets so much I had to share!
So this is where the magic happens. I have my mother in law to thank for helping me beautify it with all those bright colors!
