DesertWindDesigns Studio Tour

by DesertWindDesigns

Here are some pictures of my main studio space. It is a 10' x 10' room and I have a lot of stuff in there (Oh, to have only one hobby!) I have space in the garage as well that contains the toaster oven and some metal working supplies.

This first picture is of the north wall. This is my beading corner. I've been playing with seed beads and they are pretty much everywhere. Shelf unit has beads and supplies, books, magazines and random doodads.

This is the east wall with my area for doing small paintings. Next to it is a computer desk that is currently set up to take photographs. I have a second computer there, but it is not set up on our home network so it gets used very little. I so need a shelving unit on this wall!

The window on this south wall looks out on my backyard garden. This is my polymer clay setup. I have a little p/c tidbit sitting there on an acrylic sheet that I haven't quite decided what I want to do with. Note, my oven for curing is in the garage.

Last wall is the east wall with my sewing machine, serger behind it and a bit of my storage nook.

Last picture is a closeup of the storage. Here is a close up of the storage space. Includes yarn, fabric scraps, small painting canvases, beads, sewing patterns, pillow forms, and more than a few "UFOs".

5 Smooshing Thoughts:

I would so love to have that wall of shelves!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I thought that I was the only "dabbler among many"! Crafts that is. My husband was the one that pointed out that I needed an annex because I move from one medium to another. Right now I have a necklace in progress, I have some card samples going that need completion by tomorrow, and I have a collage on canvas that needs work for my weekly class. The annex is open, but still in process of being organized. Thanks for giving me some ideas!

What a great work space for all your crafts! It looks well organized too which must be tricky with the different stations! ~Val

Very nice. I like how you have each section set up.

Yes, I love your stations! I'm one of those organization amidst the chaos kind of artists. All of my stuff is mixed together and I have to drag out my sewing machine when I want to use it--I know I don't use it nearly as much as I would if it were out permanently. I'll have to try to make a sewing "nook" somewhere....
