giant fabric covered cork boards for the school room and studio.
Right now the studio consists of my big orange Ikea futon with my trusty Ott light, an awesome lift-top coffee table for my workspace, and an office area with a desk and chair for my laptop and other home office type stuff. My tatting corner chair has remained in the living room (which now looks like a living room and not an overflowed bead and thread pile...).
All of this moving around requires me to go through all the toys, all the craft stuff, and even all of my little hidey-holes full of things I didn't want to deal with, so I will be working this out for the better part of the rest of the summer. Better now than two days before our school year starts though, right?
The picture is a little snapshot peek into my new studio. Having dedicated space that does not interfere with the regular workings of the home has been monumental. I'm able to lay out work on my table and work assembly line style. I've gotten some nifty velvet trays to keep work sorted on my table. All my bead boxes are under the coffee table, within reach. I should say that I've done some serious damage in the bead aquisition department lately. I'm officially on a bead diet.
Anyway, Dr. Von Threadmore is of course plotting to see how she can manage a takeover of the new workspace. She knows I won't allow it, but she also knows that if she kicks loud and long enough about it, I'll probably break down and let her do some thread. She is chomping to do another batch of Getaway, as well as start her formulations for the second of her contest winners, Aurora Borealis.
Cold and dreary
