Working on a studio

There is HOPE! It is very difficult when you work long days at a full time job, entertain at your home more than normal people should, have a brigade of animals, and are undergoing several remodeling efforts in your home. To find a space to call your own, to get your own business off of the ground when it has always been your dream. But everyone needs a studio right? A place where you can sit and create and become inspired! I have decided on that place and I am ready to get cracking at it! I have picked out a porch/sunroom area in our home that will be perfect for me. There are windows surrounding with the perfect view out to my backyard and my newly blooming azaleas and dogwoods and tulips. There is storage space and wide open area for my work table. Plus my dogs have a bed so that they can keep mom company.

Now for the actual inspiration to begin the work. That first sale of my products would be so sweet. Not to mention the fact that finishing our kitchen would motivate me that much more!

Ahhh- to be creative in a place where you can make a mess throughout the process and not worry about moving it all out of the way to entertain or simply serve dinner.


  1. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now. Your workspace sounds very peaceful, just what you need! my craft room is a total cluttered mess right now. Getting it organized is def on my list of things to do soon.

  2. Having a space of your own is a great motivator for creating, and you space sounds wonderful. Enjoy the process of making it your own.
