I can’t believe how much we’ve accomplished in the last few weeks. The studio is finally just about finished. Usually, I only share pictures of the studio in its entirety once a year, but I figured… You know, so much has changed in the last few weeks and all. Lol…
This is my creative space and of course where you’ll find all of my scrapbooking, mixed media & art journaling, and Project Life supplies.
And of course, my workspace and the little guy’s books and sensory materials.
I use this table for creative projects. We’re still not entirely sure if we’re painting it white or building an island. My husband wants to set up the Etsy shop stuff in here too, so… If we do that, we’ll need space to store all the vinyl.
And here’s the other side of the studio, which the little guy has officially claimed as his. He spends lots of time in here with me.
Here’s a closer look at the little guy’s space. I have all of his stuff organized in a way that he can get it out and put it away without my help, hence all the baskets and trays.
He actually loves his trays and I find it absolutely hilarious that if I get out something that’s messy or has lots of loose pieces (blocks, Play-Doh, etc.), he automatically goes and gets a tray. It cracks me up every single time. Love this little guy! He totally gets it. Lol…
Of course, this is my scrapbooking workspace. And at the moment, quite a few things that are actually the little guy’s. Go figure, right?
All of my solid cardstock, patterned paper, and kits & collections are organized on this wire rack as well as chipboard and mini albums in the galvanized locker bins.
I organize scrapbooking supplies on this shelf. The baskets are full of embellishments organized by type. And of course you can see all of my albums too.
My mixed media & art journaling workspace is usually a mess at this point, which is definitely a good thing. That obviously means I’ve been making stuff.
Paints and markers are organized by color and Distress Inks are kept out where I can see them.
This shelf is mostly mixed media & art journaling supplies, canvases, stamps, and ephemera. My Project Life core kits are stacked up on the bottom shelf because I have the ones I’m currently using organized into a tray. The raskog cart is full of Thickers and letter stickers.
Not too long ago, I got this awesome industrial cart and I use it to organize all of my sewing & quilting stuff and ribbon, fiber, & thread. The iris cases are full of scraps organized by color. And on top of it is the Project Life supplies that I’m currently using. The spinner is a lot of miscellaneous stuff. There really isn’t much rhyme or reason to it, aside from I obviously know what’s where. Lol…
My sewing machine is on top of the industrial cart and that’s a lot of the reason I got it in the first place. I love that it’s on casters and I can move it around.
A while back, my husband put together this magnet area for the little guy and he absolutely loves it.
For what it’s worth, I cleaned up yesterday and the entire studio is of course a disaster again. That’s what happens when you share a creative space with a toddler. Lol… It’s totally worth it, though. I love spending time with him and making stuff.
