I have been talking about turning one of our bedrooms into my art studio for many years. Well......(drum roll please)......last weekend I finally did it. Everything is labeled and in it's place (so now I can't find a thing!) and the top of my work table stayed clean and clear for about 18 hours. When I make art, it is similar to what I do when I cook - I pull out every pencil, pen, paint, stamp, tool, paper, glue, etc (or in the kitchen case.....every single pot and pan). There is still more to organize, but it feels so good to sit down at my table with art intentions. It might only be a bedroom, but to me it is a fabulous studio and I can see great things happening!!!
