Where She Creates.... Blogger Event




So ... I signed up again this year on this blog ... for a special event " Where BLOGGERS Create" !! Where Women Create is even giving away some special prizes this time and Karen was featured in the WWC mag!! So exciting !
SO without further ado , i will share my space with you ...... Its really funny that when you have a business like I do and an employee that we share a little 10x12 room .... So in order to make this room really work for both of us you have to be creative ! I transformed the closet into another workspace by taking the doors off ... and plan to run to goodwill today to buy a desk as I have recently organized again and would like to put a small desk there for me to sit on the computer .... its funny how such a small space can work for 2 people and seem very large. It helps that I have lots of natural light shining in all the time and a bose Ipod speaker system to play some tunes while we work !!! Also my ikea cabinets hide away sooo much clutter and I don't know what i would do without them , i have counters all around me to create on !! I truly believe in displaying as much as you can so that you get inspiration from all around you .... and recently changed the closet shelving now to display some of my fun vignettes ....
so see even with a small studio you can run a small business !! well I hope you have enjoyed my little studio tour .... be sure to check the blog so you can see other amazing studios right here
until next time,
xo,
beth

I love how organized you are!
My studio is where I run my business as well...But I must admit I do not have room for another person. I make too much of a mess!
Have a wonderful weekend,
Blessings,
Donna

What wonderful and functional built-ins and loads of counter space to lay things out, too. You have a great space, even with the business and an employee. It looks so clean and crisp, too. Thanks for sharing this really organized and inspiring space.

Hi Beth,
Just stopping in to say high and check out your space. It's nice to se that others have tiny rooms to work in, although your's is a tad larger than mine. I like that 9 square cubby piece you have - is it from IKEA?

So great to see your creative space Kelly! I'm participating for the first time this year. Hope you found a desk for your computer...if not think about going to your local home improvement center for a door or a laminate counter top cut to the exact size that you need...place it on top of a file cabinet or a block of wood secured into the wall and you have a custom piece. Hope this helps, fondly, Roberta

Love your space but am jealous of your organizational skills! Feeling inspired though...maybe I can do something similar in my space...thanks for the tips! :)

marie said...

Your space looks great! So organized and so bright!
I'm working on my own small space right now ~ thanks for some great inspiration!

Sue@MyArtsDesire said...

Beth, Amazing job of utilizing every square inch! You've struck such a "happy balance" of being organized in order to run a business yet incorporated enough visual eye candy to make it an inspiring place to work! You gotta love Goodwill! I hope you find the perfect desk. Xo, Sue

suesueb said...

Apparently the space works beautifully because your creations are always fabulous. I too like my things out where I can see them. Your studio is great!

Christine Edwards said...

Wow, I'm whining I don't have enough space for just me and my stuff in my room, and here you accommodate two people. It looks so wonderfully organized, which is what I'm sure is the key. ;-) Thank you for sharing.

Halle said...

Love the white...clean and crisp! The cover cake plate is genius!

jsimplylive said...

It is so nice to see a jewelry studio. After seeing what you have done with your small space, I am headed out to Ikea tomorrow. You look so incredibly organized and if you cam do it, I guess we can, too.

Some day, come and take a peek at my adult daughter and my blog, if you would like. It is three months old, though we have been making jewelry together for fifteen years. We, of course, venture into other areas. I love paper crafting...she loves a million other things like vintage fashion. We were not in any shape to photograph but I am loving the tours.

BTW, I am going to be in your incredible looking china cup class at Silver Bella. I am really looking forward to that. I am the one in and out of the wheelchair (another story).

I love those IKEA cubes. We are moving and I am thinking about buying some for my new studio. Thank you for sharing your pretty space with us!

marcia @Child in Harmony said...

I love your space! and I so agree that you need to *see* your things to be inspired.

I don't think it's how large a space is but how well organized it is...like yours, and especially for 2 people.
I am sooo inspired because I have *tried* so hard to make a room off my kitchen work as a art studio for my daughter and me. it is 10 X 15 (with 2 doorways)and I have always said I cannot do it because it is too small. Instead, I now realize it's because I haven't organized properly and used every inch of space efficiently. As I look around I see now what I could do. Thank you for the inspiration.

happy day!

Janet Bernasconi said...

Hi Beth,

Your studio is perfect and I can see how two of your work in there just fine..I always ask myself why I couldn't have fallen for jewelry design..LOL It requires so much less space then fabric!

I think you've done a marvelous job of designing the layout. Thanks for sharing it with me.

I'd love for you to come over for a stroll through my studio. It's been an ongoing transformation for almost a year since I moved in and had all the remodeling done.

Have a wonderful day,
Stephanie ♥

Your cupboards are so pretty. Everything looks so organized in your space which I guess it would have to be for two people to work together. Thanks for the tour!

Sherry F. said...

It does help to be organized, which you are. I am extremely organized but a very messy worker! If that makes sense to you. I am knew to the blogging world, but now wish I would have started sooner. I love it! Some of the blogs in the party have been a great inspiration to me and yours is one of them. If you would like to take a peek at mine I would be honored to hear what you think. Thanks for sharring~ Sherry w/Scrapping With Sherry
