the "in my studio" series is a chance for me to share bits and pieces of my crafting and design process, the work and inspiration behind my art. (previous posts include my pattern book, a day in the life, my packaging essentials and tools of the trade).
It's no secret that one day I would love to have a home studio. Since we don't currently have the space, I've transformed a corner of our living room into my "studio". It's small but functional and I love having all my tools and supplies in the same spot. (I think Waldi likes it too...this way he doesn't find wool tucked into every corner of our apartment!) Today I thought I would share a bit about how I maximize my storage space.
cabinet: I won't say a lot about this, since I've talked more about it before but I will say that I would be lost without it. This is the heart of my home studio, so to say.
glass jars: I use glass jars to store my straight needles & DPN's, and also my embroidery thread. Usually I make some sort of crochet trim to go around the jars, but I think they look cute on their own too.
cans: I started storing my pencil crayons in a can as a temporary solution. I always meant to find something better to keep them in, but now I'm sort of attached to the look!
mugs: I'm a sucker for cute mugs at flea markets. I can never resist! Since there's no way I can drink out of all of them, I've started using them to store my tools- crochet hooks, washi tape, hole punch, you name it! Recently, I even started using one to hold yarn scraps.
bookshelf: Waldi build a wonderful bookshelf out of recycled wine crates when we first moved here. It's one of my favorite things about our apartment! I use one of the bottom crates to store finished projects, and of course all my crafting books are there as well.
so there you have it! that's how I maximize my space! do you have a home crafting space? if so, how do you organize it? I'd love to hear your tips!
