If you've followed this event for a while now you might remember that I used to have a large sunny room for a studio. (see that studio here) Then we moved and I had a room that was much smaller. (see that studio here) Well, we are still in that same house but I found I couldn't work in that room. I needed sunshine. So, I've moved to an even smaller room with only one window. What in the world?!! But, at least the sun shines in!
It has been quite an adjustment and I have had to rethink pretty much everything. For one thing there is very little room for fluff. You have to start thinking about just what is necessary. But I do love that sunshine. The view isn't amazing but I need to be working and not staring out the window anyway. In this room, where space is of a premium, the cats have bunk beds.
I do find that at least once a week I wonder if I couldn't find a way to fit my larger work table into this room. I get my trusty tape measure out and check to see if the walls have gotten any longer since the last time I measured. And, once again I see that there is no way to fit that large table in here. Actually, the truth is that I usually have a messy table with only a small workspace -- whether the table is large or small. A lot of the larger table was filled with the cat's baskets. And if you can see Rose the black cat in this dark photo you will see that she still prefers the table to her bed.
My antique dentist drawers had to go on the lower level. (You can see more about them in better light here) When your space is small everywhere is potential for storage. I can still use them here.
Thank you for joining me in my little studio today. I've loved having you here in spite of the complications. By the way, the lovely design for my blog background was created by Karen Valentine using my art. Its been a few years and I keep thinking I should have her redo it. But I really like this one so I just keep it. She does professional personalized work. If your blog needs a little boost, I recommend Karen for blog design.
