As I said in my last post, organizing is in the air and on the blogs. Following are even more links. There are lots of sites here to visit as you ponder what steps need to be taken to get your space to where you want it to be. Enjoy!
Follow Nicki as she creates her revamped studio space after the original space flooded. She is off to a great start. I wish there was an IKEA close to me. I love the wire baskets she is going to use for fabric!
Five tips for organizing your studio are given on this link…
Storing or organizing small pieces of fabric can sometimes be more difficult than larger pieces. Andrea has a system that works great for her and shares that with you on this link. This may be a system that would work for papers or trims as well.
Andrea also shares a link to this site with lots of ideas and even more links (but don’t forget to come back and visit me again~lol)…
Over at Art Bead Scene there are more featured studios on a weekly basis. The author is sharing a photo of her own studio on the following link and is planning to downsize…(how do you do that when beads reproduce? lol) She also added links to a couple of other beader’s studios here.
This is a blog I just love to follow. Jane always has some unique, wonderful and inspirational ideas to share. I’ve shared some of her posts before, but actually, her entire blog is full of great things.
Maybe you have a piece of furniture you just aren’t thrilled with. Don’t be afraid to see what wonders simply painting it might do. Look at the amazing transformation to this card catalog (a wonderful piece of furniture in and of itself), just by painting it white! Follow this link to The Frosted Gardner.
Brenda at Cozy Little House has shared some jars she made spiffy rather than storing her things in boring craft jars. I think they look great!
…and yet more inspiration. This one isn’t focused on the studio, but it is related to organizing and decluttering, and as I said, it is inspirational!
For some great information on organizing, Gussy Sews has posted a couple of things about workflow that might help those of you who would like to do some rearranging.
Here is a posting by Creative Compass Magazine that might spark some ideas…it’s called Storage Ideas for Creative People and Spaces. There may be something here you can incorporate into your space. While you are there, check out some of the other postings on this site.
