Where This Blogger Creates....

Welcome to my studio!!
Has it been a year already? I had big BIG plans to get my studio looking over the top adorable, and time just ran out *wink* I guess I could start now for next year! If you didn't know this already... I live in the dust capital of the world, Fresno California....fine talcum powder dust all over every.thing.
I am torn between having things out and looking cute... and things put away, organized and dust free. I enlarged the labels on all of my bins of treasure since last year... now I can see them without my reading glasses on. *woot-woot* While cleaning my studio for this yearly event.... I got rid of 5 large bags of junk treasures. It is hard to believe that I need ALL OF THIS STUFF AND MORE to be able to create anything. I have my buttons close by in their own cabinet.... (I have more than this lol....trust me...)What to do with all of these buttons??? Here is one fun idea I came up with...I did manage to bring in a huge three piece t.v. wall unit into the room, that was my goal from last year. It was no easy task...... I tried it once, and the wide middle piece wouldn't make the turn into the room. That night while trying to get to sleep---- I thought about it, and decided it would fit through the door if I cut the wooden t.v. unit in half. The next day, it was cut in half and pushed into the room and reassembled! You can see the other pieces of this unit on this slide show below...

Part 2 of my studio slide show.....


Between now and next years linky party, I am going to redo my studio's desk..... This is a very good working area, but not to cute. Next year, I'm shooting for over the top CAUTE!This is where I sit and do things like applique, bead work and where I look through books while I watch listen to the t.v. I always have some bling close by.... I have bins & bins of jewelry... and no matter how I look at some pieces of jewelry, I can't figure out what to do with them, until now. I picked up this wooden "Dream" sign for only $2.50 and now I simply hot glue pieces to it when I come across those "to good to toss out, but I can't use them" pieces. I use hot glue just in case I need to pry off some of the jewelry at a later date!
Thank you Karen of "My Desert Cottage" for hosting this years "Where Bloggers Create 2012" linky party! It is the only time of the year that my studio gets an extensive cleaning!
Big hugs~

Wow! All those labelled bins are amazing! Your space is lovely. Everything looks pretty darn cute to me. I love the chair where you sit to create. And that entertainment center is perfect ... where there's a will, there's a way. Thanks for sharing and having a great weekend. Tammy

Cheryl your space is yummy! I can't believe you have so many boxes full of goodies! I love, love, love the idea of gluing the jewelry pieces onto your letters. They are going to be fab when finished!!! Thank you for joining the party!!!! Have fun browsing!

Tamatha said...

I love how your supplies are stored-especially the bling pieces! Thanks for sharing!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Grea space, Cheryl! You sound like me with the reading glasses! I should make my labels bigger, but I normally have my glasses on when I'm creating something anyway. I love how you've got everything labeled. I think that {and using clear containers} makes it easier to see what you've got. I think your table looks just fine. Function is foremost; cuteness comes after! Great solution for getting that big unit into your space. I'll bet it works perfectly for you, too. Thanks so much for the tour!
