my scrumptious new studio

23 Aug

I know this post has been a long time coming, so for those who have been desperately wanting to see my new studio space, the wait is now over! I love this space so much that I don’t even know what to start gushing about first: a whole room to myself, a big window that spills natural light onto my drafting table, the view of the mountains and magnolia tree, the wood corner desk for digital edits and mail art writing, the wire shelving units filled with massive stacks of supplies, the bookshelf that houses some of the best volumes I’ve ever collected, or the double inspiration walls that surround my creative space.It took a lot of work to put this room together, but it was worth every second, as it is now the art studio that I have always dreamed of. I honestly can’t say that I’ve missed my previous studio one bit. What do you think of my new space?

    AMAZING! It looks really amazing! I was just thinking yesterday that those skinny shelves are such a great idea and here you are with two walls of them – jealous!

    Congratulations for creating your dream :-D

    I absolutely LOVE your new space!! You did some great work in your old studio, but I can understand that you won’t exactly miss the space. How awesome to now have a couple of work stations & plenty of storage!

    An amazing, inspiring workspace is key in putting out amazing work. It must feel so good to have everything set up. You are motivating me to finish up my studio! Thanks for sharing and enjoy your new space!

    Ok, I am so jealous. This is such a great place to work. If I had that window in my little studio space I’d never get any work done. Congratulations on getting it all set up. I hope you enjoy lots of creative time there!
