Hey guys! I thought it would be kind of fun to go behind the scenes a little bit and show you my craft/paint/make space. I'm quite fortunate that (at the moment) I have a second bedroom that I can contain all my stuffs. Right now, it's a complete MESS. I have paintings (some complete, some not) and canvas piled up all over. Don't let these photos fool you-- I cleaned like a madwoman before I photographed my space! What you don't see is all the junk that's usually on my desk and floor that I moved just outside the room. I moved it all right back when I was finished shooting!
Here's my desktop space. I have remnants of my previous scrapbooking endeavor (i keep this stuffs because I have the grand plan of one day getting back into it), knitting/crochet supplies, my moms cards that are for sale in her shop, and off to the right is my sewing machine that I have a tentative friendship with.
Here's just one pile of completed paintings... These are looking for a new home if you're interested...
Can I tell you how much I LOVE my new easel (it was a gift from G two Christmases ago. I. LOVE. IT.) I also really like my painting space up here. The window is off to my left (very important for me) so i get to look outside while I paint and I get a ton of natural light. I have a record player and a bunch of records in the back corner and really good speakers next to me so I have plenty of tunes to listen to while I paint (I also hook up my phone with my iTunes to the record player and rock out.) I even have a space for my coffee!
This is the only room in my house where my paintings are hung. (Actually it's the only room in the house where anything is hung on the walls...)
So, yeah-- this is my little space! I'd love to hear what you think-- leave a comment in the comments section below!
