her NEW studio ..

So finally it is cooling off a little here in AZ .... I am spending more time out in my studio (cooling a 2 car garage is huge deal here ! )
So the space is finally starting to come together , i have hung a couple of chandeliers and am still hoping to hang a few more soon .. I have some fun ideas for lighting , but luckily too I have a couple windows which add some natural light and when its cool enough i can prop open the door to the garage ... we also painted the floors with concrete stain a nice chocolate brown ...
the garage is not directly attached to the house so you have a seperate entrance and it kinda feels like i am in my own little world here !  I have hung curtains in aqua and brown along the side where the garage door is ... you really have no idea your in a garage when you enter .. I have used fabric to hide all the door parts ...

  My plans for the future... a holiday open house and studio tour coming in November .... and next year I will be having a class in late January or early February so stay tuned !! 
hope you enjoyed the mini tour !! 
until next time

What a gorgeous studio! It's so light and beautifully decorated. I would want to stay there all day and create.

I've been looking for dress forms to use as a display at my shows. I don't suppose you'd want to let loose of one of yours...? Naw, didn't think so.

Thanks for sharing your studio with us.

Beth,
Your studio is fabulous and having an open house sounds like so much fun. I used to have craft shows in my home and I loved it. However mine were in my living room which got transformed into a boutique with furniture moved and craziness!!
Blessings,

What a dreamy space! Enjoy your new studio ! I have a cabin for my studio right outside of my lakefront home.... unfortunately no heat or water so I need to use a wood stove. We have COLD winters here in Canada! I'd love for you to check out my blog Beth and let me know what you think.

Amazing Beth! I love the way you have so much space around your work area. Cosme said that we can start transforming 1 1/2 of the garages for my studio....I'm going to take some notes here.
