:: studio organization

Well hello there, I've been trying to get this post done for two days now, but things just keep coming up & I haven't been able to sit at my computer for more than a couple of minutes. So seems like today is finally the day that I get to share my organized studio with you. My whole house is under the gun when it comes to de-cluttering, and my studio was high on the list. I finally took a break from the other rooms to tackle this project so I thought I would share with you. I'm so excited to see the surface of my desks that words can't even explain. See that tufted chair, that tufted chair is for visitors, won't you come and have a cup of coffee or tea & knit & chat with me, I would love to have you now that my room is presentable.

Here's where you'll find me. Rocking away with my coffee by my side & my knitting needles clacking. Look at my bookcases would you, I totally reorganized them....again.

This seems to be an ongoing thing with me, the organization of my studio. I'm hoping this time I've found the formula that will stick. I purchased these kraft paper photo boxes from Michael's to organize all of my supplies a little better. Before I had things in miscellaneous tins & cracker jars....I like this way much much better, it's all nice & neat and labeled too, be still my organizing heart. The boxes are on sale right now 50% off, so if you choose to go get some I thought I would share my labels with you here


Call me crazy, but I have my yarns organized by the colors that can be seen & their surroundings. I have the neutrals on the bookshelf closest to the french doors because they work with the rest of the house when you look into the room from the hallway. I have the greens, yellows, reds & oranges closest to the windows and the yellow chairs because they work with the artwork & furniture on that side of the room. Everything else is in the middle, and I guess they work with the rest of the artwork in the room....folks, this is how my mind works when I organize...crazy huh.

This is the view above the desks, a collection of vintage & some of my own artwork...mostly thrift store finds, I love old oil paintings & paint by numbers. My colored pencils, pens, & paintbrushes are on the left shelf, and all of my buttons & baubles are on the right shelf.

This is my working corner, not too terribly long ago I rearranged the room and put my round table in the corner which I'm now using as my computer/work area, now both desks are open for drawing & crafting. So, just envision me in this chair right now.

I hope you've had a wonderful week. I hope to share more of my organizing adventures with you in the near future. Here's a look at all the stuff I purged from my house today. Not including about 5 more bags of trash. Say it with me....NO MORE HOARDING. I can't tell you how good it feels to be rid of this excess stuff.

{peace, love & hugs}

  4. It looks great!! I have been doing the same thing here, and yes it feels amazing to purge. The key for me is to not bring a lot more stuff back in. Keep going:)

  7. Wow, that is a studio I could crawl into and spend some time! Beautiful.

  8. AMAZE. It looks so nice and organized. :) It does feel good to get rid of unwanted junk. I've been doing that a lot this year, but it must have been multiplying in my basement because there is a ton more to go. Why did I ever let my Grandma talk me into taking her dressed up goose off her hands?!

  9. I came across your blog on Pinterest looking for ideas to organize my office/guest room. I'm so glad you posted where you found those kraft photo boxes because I got right on the phone with my local Michael's, had them put all the boxes they had in stock on hold, and then went down and bought them out! I'm so happy with them, and they were on sale for $2 each! Also, your studio looks great. I love how you have your yarn on display, it's so pretty!


I love seeing your lovely faces & reading your sweet comments. Thanks for taking the time to visit me : ) * I do my best to respond by e-mail, if I miss you please forgive me. peace & love * Carrie
