Remember my bead soup blog party partner, Patty? Such a fabulous lady. Her gorgeous sunroom studio was featured on Studio Waterstone. It's just lovely and so very inviting. (Much like Patty herself)
However, her fabulous craft space, makes me look upon my own craftroom with disdain at the lack of organization and decoration. I mean, I've organized. . .I've decorated. But, there's just not that creative sense of peace that you get when everything is put away so pretty in MATCHING containers and not in old copy paper boxes.
As I swoon over the cohesion and flow of Patty's bright room, I'm actually considering that I STOP BUYING BEADS (the horror!) and start spending my money and some of my time on finally turning the craftroom into a space I can be proud of.
I've already spent my whole morning thinking about it and have even reminded Pat about the window seat/storage unit I've always wanted him to build for me. I've got some more thinking to do on this undertaking. I've got some questions to ponder:
- Do I want to completely rearrange the entire room?
- What design theme/concept/colors will work best for me?
- How do I incorporate the bits and pieces of my own that also inhabit the space (collections, documents, filing cabinet, etc)?
- Is it possible for me to move EVERYTHING out of the space in order to start with a clean slate?
- How will I balance this project while still being productive?
- When can I start?
Oh, the possibilities. . .
Thank you Patty for the inspiration and at the same time curse you Patty for the distraction. ;) Here's hoping I can keep the resolve to transform it. Like all my tasks, I'll probably start small and work in stages. Wish me luck!
**On a side note. . ..Somehow yesterday I missed the fact that Holly at SilverRose Designs is ALSO having a giveaway. (to self: Come on Hope, pay attention!) She's offering up a beautiful necklace and earring set. They're in some of my favorite colors too!!
I apologize for the lack of pictures today. I've just got too many images of Patty's studio swimming in my head I guess.
