studio before & after
don’t you just love the fall? there is an excitement in the air as the days become crisp. i feel like i can think more clearly without fatigue from the heat. along with the fall comes a desire for me to get organized.
i have been trying to clear all of the clutter out of my life after having a crazy busy summer. my studio was seriously trashed from weeks of creating. and i felt like the little organization i had was just not working for me anymore. my studio is fairly small, so when the clutter builds up you can’t walk into the room. it was to the point where i didn’t want to create because there was just stuff everywhere. i was literally living, or should i say creating, out of my suitcase. i have to pack everything up once a week to take to my class. so the supplies literally end up all over the place.
i needed a place to put my supplies back when i got home from teaching, besides the floor. when you have a small space the smartest option is to go up. this maximizes what little area you have. i already had shelves up on my wall, but i needed something more on my working level to store the supplies that i use every day. that is when i found these awesome vintage crates on craigslist. major score!
i love how the crates added some warmth to my studio. not to mention that they are perfect for organizing my supplies.
i am seriously in love with my studio now. i didn’t want to go to bed last night i was so excited. i just sat in there staring at how awesome it looked. now i am ready to face the fall and winter with a new sense of focus. i can’t wait to get creating!
