Exciting news… this weekend, I hung the last picture and unpacked our last box from our move! So… do you want to see my finished studio?
Okie dokie! Come in and have a look around!
I’ve set up one of my favorite pieces of furniture: an old icebox from my grandmother’s house (yes! it’s really a wooden box that you used to put ice inside!). I’m using it to store the yarn for my kits:
The next piece that I’m particularly pleased with is an old ladder that I bought while we were in Lancaster County. I’ve used it to store my ‘fancy’ skeins of yarn:
And do you remember my story about my grandfather’s deer head? Well, now dearie has a home! He’s keeping watch over my dry sink which stores already-packaged kits, and has my yarn meter & winder fastened on top:
Moving around the room, I’ve got an open shelving unit that holds all of my boxes for shipping kits, books & finished animals (and keeps my tv and printer on top!):
You can’t have a stuffed-animal studio without keeping some stuffed animals, right? I’m keeping mine in the crib that my uncle made for me when I was an infant:
I’m very lucky to have a closet where I can store all of my stuffing and bulky items. Phew! Then I’ve got another furniture piece where I keep the projects I’m working on, sewing supplies and smaller materials (like eyes and buttons):
And my desk lives in the middle!
Unfortunately, one shelf got pushed out into the hallway (outside my studio door)… my yarn shelf!
Can you tell that I love organizing my yarn by color?
I’m so relieved that my studio is finished, and it’s a great place to work. The only downside is that the lighting isn’t great… so I take all of my photos in another room of the house. That’s not bad going, though!
