Studio and Journal




I've just done a bit of rearranging and cleaning up in my studio. I used to be a draftswoman and technical illustrator many years ago, before computers took over. I've had this fantastis drawing board all these years, but it takes up so much space, my dear husband has been trying to talk me into getting rid of it for years, but you know the old feeling that you might just need it one day. Well he's won, but there is compromise, I took the top off the board and got rid of the stand. The top is cedar and has made a fantastic desk, you can see it in the photos, that's now where I do my journals and altered books. To the right is another story, that's where I do my mosaics and major constructions, that defies being tidy. That's real hard hat territory.
Next step is my jewellery making area and my textile zone. I'll show photos later, when they've been given the treatment.

Ok....that's it ....now I'm going to have to clean MY studio. I need a good space planner.....

I LOVE the comment about the hard hat area!!! I'm afraid that's what I'm dealing with as well. Oh well.

Enjoy your newly cleaned space while you can, Ro.

Looks extremely good to me, however I thought it looked fantastic before. An exhilirating and stimulating studio, amotivating space.
