Studio Tour Dreams

1st the winner of the Studio Tour grand prize, (a $50 grab bag) is Sharon from Live Wire Jewelry!

I want to thank everyone who stopped by during my studio tour. I loved reading all of your comments and visited the blogs you shared with me. I didn't get to comment on every one, but I did stop by.
This is the complete layout of my studio, in case you were wondering. I also have a large closet, that is a challenge for another time!
Now that the studio is clean and organized, I've been thinking of how exactly I use this space. How to make it more functional, inviting and inspiring? I was looking at my window, thinking how much I'd love a window seat and them blam. Oh, am I not married to a sculptor who worked in a cabinet factory for years when he was in college? Why yes, yes I am! So I showed Jess my plan last night and he was jazzed.
This will be our project for September. Along with the window seat, I want bookshelves on both sides and window seat to be a long bookshelf for extra storage. (We have a lot of books!) And then I thought, well since we are building things I want to an island/work desk with cabinets underneath for all my storage. So that's the plan.

I'm off to work on getting ready for a children's book conference in LA next week. My shop will close the 5th - 13th. I know, Humblebeads are a rare bird this summer. So the free shipping will continue until Monday. Have a great weekend!

I think you may have found a new business venture Heather....revamping and restyling artist studios! Can you can Jess come and work your magic on me? I love it! Great ideas. Very inspiring as always. Have fun and be safe in LA.
