You can go to websites and many blogs and see beautiful places and beautiful spaces where lovely ladies create their lovely goods. A few of my blog buddies asked me if I have a creative space and if so would I share it. OH MY ! Yes, I have a space but it is almost never neat and not nearly as beautiful as I'd like. But, it is me and you are welcome to my space where I create at home but I am warning you...my space is the frog before the princess kisses him :) It's a small room off of my kitchen and I have crammed a lot of stuff into this little space.
The first (and last) pictures are looking into the little space from my kitchen. The door on the left leads to a small porch and our garage is there to the back. There is a metal roll around with supplies etc., a small closet and then a table with bench seating where what I am working on is usually spread all over.
The big white cabinet to the left we got at Lowe's...sigh. That cabinet almost took me down! But with perseverance, a huge dose of stubborness and determination I prevailed. (But just in case I wedged it into that corner to make sure it stands up LOL)
Next to it is a kitchen cabinet on wheels that I was going to use for my kitchen island...but decided I needed it more in the back room. After the window is a set of French doors which lead out to the deck. That's where I take a lot of my product photos ummm not on the deck on that folding table. The lamp helps because it is a natural light lamp, which I use when painting too. Then I have a small roll around and two more small white cabinets.
Now you can see my table is full of stuff...the benches are full of stuff ... some people say I am full of stuff. That's okay because all of it's true. So now you know that while I would LOVE to have a fabulous, beautiful space I am just not organized enough (okay AND I have too much stuff) to keep one looking beautiful. BUT I am very happy that I do have a space at home to use when I'm not at the cottage. Maybe come September I will share photos of my workspace at the cottage, if anyone is interested.
Thanks for asking and thanks for looking and thanks for not mentioning how messy my little space is. I would love to see your space, even though I'm sure it will put mine to shame.
My wish for you: May you always have a place for your stuff.
