I love my craft studio and it gets a lot of use. One of the more recent uses was for the Care Package Project. For over a month the table was covered in boxes, donations, and projects we were working on to make them extra nice. The table and room seemed so bare once the boxes were sent off. That inspired some spring cleaning. I started cleaning, dusting, and re-organizing
This morning, I finally put the new cutting mat on the table that my husband gave me for Christmas.
I can't believe what a perfect fit it is for my table!
It's so much bigger than the one I've been using for over 25 years.
It'll be so much easier to cut fabric on!
I kind of needed a new one! The old one was supposed to be "self healing" and it was for a long time. But, I have a feeling they weren't meant to be used this long. It's been cracking and falling apart
over the past few years. I got a LOT of use out of it.
Here's the other side of the room. I love my chandelier!
I just need to make some window treatments. That would make the room look great!
I still haven't figured out how to make the working/supply side of the room prettier.
Lots of supplies are easily accessible though. There's also a walk-in closet in the room.
I've had some red transferware plates sitting around for a while. I just couldn't decide where I wanted to hang them. Plus, I have trouble committing to a decision when it comes to hanging things on the walls. I think that's weird since I used to hang tons of stuff on my walls. Anyway, it popped in my head to try them in the studio and they looked so good that I actually hung them up!
You can see them in the top photo too.
The bins that used to fill the studio closet are now spilling into the room.
These two have yarn in them...along with several in the closet.
And, these are filled with fabric and patterns...
I really want to work through the materials in these bins.
I'd like to have less bins and materials, and more space.
The satisfaction of all the things I could make would be great!
I'm determined! Now, if I can just match patterns and projects to the stash I have!
