Saturday Studio changes under way...

Well I've began the re-do on the studio. I guess the word re-do isn't an accurate description of the task. Maybe the word restructuring is a better fit.

I have however began the very long process of sorting, separating, putting away items that aren't used regularly, unless their cute of course, then I want to be able to see them.
Since my studio is also my shop, and a small space, I wobble back and forth with practicality, functionality and merchandising. All of which, reflect my personality and feeling of well being. 
This is the working room part of my studio. I very seldom share. This is where I create. I guess the reason I don't disclose is simple. It's usually a total mess! I make over one-hundred hand crafted items! There's no way it's going to be orderly. Usually stacks of freshly cut soap bars line the walls, and fabric stacked high from work in progress and new designs.

This little corner of the work room however usually stays the same. I think it's good to have a corner that never changes. 
My Mom's wooden bench fluffed with softness. My favorite little lamp. All my baubles and bows in clear glass jars so that I can see what I have, cause I sometime forget!
It's the best of both worlds I believe having your shop in your home. 
After all, home is where the heart is!

Enjoy caring and sharing summer days.

Summer Studio

I plucked this little vintage apron from my friend Julie's shop.
The petite size apron is very old. I'm guessing from the 1920's, my favorite era!
The delicate embroidery work and satin tie is a delightfully sweet design.
I hung the new apron on the studio door.
One of those simple but satisfying little things that bring joy to my summer. 

I'll be sharing an updated studio soon.

Where Bloggers Create...

I just completed the tour of my studio/shop for the upcoming Where Bloggers Create! This is a shot outside the studio door.
I'm beginning to get excited about the share & care party.

Calico Petals will be attending a fun get together, "Where Bloggers Create" party on June 19. 
I think this will be so much fun!
If you're not familiar with how it works...
Each party guest happily showcases their unique creative spaces, and then we all attend the party to share. 
Mine is pretty messy at this moment, so I better get it spruced up for the party!

Hope to see you there!
