|My "Etsy" wall... all of these pictures are available in my Etsy shop|
Several weeks ago, I made a huge decision and moved my studio from the lower level (aka basement) of my home to a new, upstairs location. After all is said and done, I have only one comment: How could it be that I spent all of those years underground? Although I loved the cozy space that I had carved out in my basement, there is nothing, I repeat NOTHING like natural light and wood floors.
|Quilts and Fabrics Stacked on Shelves|
I love the color of the walls, which is the same buttery yellow I had painted my basement studio, but they seem so much warmer in the natural light. I have a closet in which I can hide my unsightly art materials, and a cabinet which holds lots of the rest.
|Vintage Books and Treasures|
My books and fabrics, tools and papers that I constantly use are readily available on a slim bookshelf, and my walls are adorned with my own artwork. I now have a working desk, file cabinet, and telephone that are nearby and available for the "other side" of my artistic endeavors.
It makes me happy to have a room of my own, and I feel more productive.
