Studio Sweet Studio

I've been hard at work: creating. Creating a space where I can create. The kitchen table was my craft studio. With three people in a 900-square-foot home, there wasn't much choice. Or so I thought.

Careful consideration goes into how our space at home is used. In fact, I have found great inspiration to do more with less, after seeing these amazing houses from the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. So much can be accomplished in small spaces. But, the kitchen table was a creative mess. With a dreamy thought bubble over my head, I wondered, "It would be so nice to have a whole room as a craft studio. But do I really need it?"

We have one linen closet and with husband's "O.K.", I decided to give it a redesign. Out came the sheets, towels, boxes and one shelf. In went containers of little goodies, spools of ribbon, command hooks (love those!), yarn, grandma's sewing machine, fabric, felt, thread, glues, papers and a mini upholstered seat. Voila! Instant craft studio.

It would have been much more dramatic to take a "before" picture, but sometimes good ideas come too late. It may be small, but it's mine, all mine. And we can eat dinner at the table again. Hooray! Now, what do I do with all the towels??
