My Studio


I formulated an idea a few days ago.  Why not have a space to call my own?  You see, I have yarn squished in my bedroom closet and yarn sprinkled through out the family room.  My notebooks and pens were stashed in a kitchen cupboard.  I had nooks and crannies everywhere.  Since the kids are both on their adventures for the summer, I suggested to my husband that we flip the guest room into my studio room (it's a craft room but I like the word studio better). He said "why not!" that is one of the many reasons I love him.


So yesterday morning, 9 a.m. we started.  We moved big shelves downstairs, small shelves upstairs, a table from storage upstairs.  I collected my "stuff" from corners and baskets.  Poor Frodo, he did not know what was going on and followed me everywhere.  I know my legs and arms were aching, so he must have been just as tired (he still sleeping as I type).


I still have to share this room with guests when they visit.  However, we have each child's room empty as well-so there is plenty of space in the house.  My computer is downstairs for now.  I'm debating whether I want that in this little oasis. I fear it would be a distraction. My husband suggested some shelves above the table, I'm thinking a vision board.


The doll in the photo above was my mother's toy as a child.  She was bald with a broken leg (and naked).  I knit her the outfit that she is wearing-unfortunately I cannot remember where I found the pattern and it was pre-Ravelry days.

  4. I love it!!! What a perfect space for you to work in. I like the idea of a vision board! Ree & I started putting together our art/craft room a few months ago. Then morning sickness hit & it's not put together anymore. Maybe we should work on that again soon!

  8. How perfectly lovely! What a welcoming space for you! I think I will start calling my office my studio too:) My mom has a room like this--it used to be my little brother's room, but is now more of an all-purpose space. It really needs help to be transformed into a studio, and I'm hankering to help her with it. I don't know when I'll be home next, but it's at the top of my list. Happy creating!

  9. I *LOVE* your new studio. It is such a bright, inviting space. I like how you have organized/displayed your needles and yarn. A vision board would be perfect.

    How wonderful to have one of your mother's childhood treasures. The outfit you knit for her is absolutely gorgeous.

    Enjoy your new play space!

  11. I love your new space, Karen :)

    I'm beginning to think my knitting attic is never going to be done since everything else keeps taking precedence on the home project list but your room inspires me to get it finished!!

    I was happy to spot the box I made you sitting on your desk...I had forgotten all about it :)

  20. once upon a time I had a lovely space for craft but that room was converted into bedroom small lounge computer room. I miss the space and the opportunity to leave projects on the go ready for action when I wanted them to be. Lucky you... one day I gain my space back again. The doll is lovely and i like your pencil vase

  25. I love it! I want a studio room of my own (insert whiney voice here)! Right now I'm relegated to the laundry room along with all of the other "junk" As soon as we clean up some toys and re-do the downstairs living room. Yeah. Right. Wishful thinking.
