I love the ads when the college student leaves home and mom and dad convert the room into a better living space. I can't say that it is a better living space, but it is definitely a much more creative thinking space. Thanks to our son, my husband I share the space for my jewelry/craft business and his coin collecting. Now to organize the creative clutter and chaos.
By sitting in my chair I can reach anything I may need with out reaching very far. Currently my main obsession is jewelry. I do enjoy dabbling with glass painting, watercolor, floral design, and miscellaneous paper crafts. On the left of the desk is a wall of shelves and plastic storage cabinets filled to the brim with a sundry of supplies and tools. Unfortunately as a shared space, some of my precious possessions are in the laundry room or garage down stairs. So when the mood swings I do get more exercise. And do I need that too.
When working in my space I am so committed to my thoughts that I loose all sense of time. Eventually I will hear footsteps on the stair case and then I know I will hear the hubby say "do you know what time it is?" Usually it means that it is time to cook. So I dutifully say "one more minute" and 30 minutes later I make my way down to the kitchen.
Someone once said that a home is a man's castle. Well, a studio is an artist's sanctuary!!!
I LOVE my sanctuary.
