a little bit of studio love/guilt

One of the biggest things I love about my flat is that it is large and bright enough to have quite a generous sized "studio" area next to my bedroom. The entire flat is open-plan, so it sometimes makes it hard to tell where the studio ends and the bedroom begins, especially since I tend to do a lot of my creative pursuits while sitting on my bed, something I have done since I was little. Many a night my mum tucked me into bed only to find pens under the covers, or pencil sharpenings between the sheets!

These days I make sure that anything that involves untidiness takes place in my studio, and I only really do drawing on my bed now. This has meant that my studio is often full to the brim of bits and pieces of various crafty activities: half-carved blocks of lino, tubes of paint, paper cuttings, jewellery findings and pots of glitter.

My studio has come a long way since I first moved in a couple of years ago, but it is still nowhere near how it should be, especially if it is to be the hub of my business when I finally quit my day job. I don't know from where I have accumulated all this "stuff" but this is how my studio is looking at the moment...


I guess it isn't as bad as it could be, and I have a lot of boxes and drawers and storage compartments of various types which are pretty organised... honest!

I need to remember how lucky I am to even have a studio area, I know a lot of crafters have to put up with a teeny space or none at all, and it kind of makes me feel guilty for not looking after it properly...

Where do you prefer to do your crafty activities?

Thank you so much! I find it very inspiring to be surrounded by pretty things, so it serves me well!
