My "Studio"

Well, maybe not exactly a studio, but its my arts/crafts space. Maybe one day I will rent a place in town where I live and actually have a "real job". I can dream! Either way, I am sssoooo thankful I even a have an area to put all my paint and supplies. I also get a big closet to store my canvases and paper. I love it! Before, I would have to drag everything out when I wanted to paint which limited my time and creativity. Now I can leave out what I am working on and come back any time of the day or night. In the room I have a t.v. for the girls and a little Dora couch for them to lounge in. I also have a desk with my Epson printer on it.

I just moved in so I need to really decorate a bit, my home is real plain right now. I don't have any curtains up yet and nothing on the walls. Its plain boring. I am working on some retro mini art for my living room though! I will post a pic of that when I am done. I painted that shelf to look shabby chic. It was a cheap little bookshelf that was in my daughter's room and nothing ever stayed on it, so I adopted it! I used old jars that I used for coffee and sugar in my kitchen a long time ago; I knew saving them would come in handy someday. I really do love the shabby chic style and tried to incorporate it somehow.

I didn't want to take a pic of my space when it was all nice and neat b/c that is never what it is. This is the way it looks all the time! Hope you enjoyed seeing my little corner of creativity!

Love that shelf. It is really nice having all the paint out where you can see what you have, huh? I need to get me an inspiration board one of these days. And what a great idea to put a tv in there for the kids. My littlest is always climbing all over me while I'm trying to paint and it doesn't work well!
