When I moved into my 2 bedroom apartment, I turned the extra bedroom into a guest room. My daughter is an adult and lives in Nashville also, my parents are elderly and don't travel that much, so there was no one to use it. I needed a place for my drawing table, so I converted the extra bedroom into a studio.
As you can tell, I have lots of corners where I have to keep supplies.
I find that my creative juices flow better when I am surrounded with all my stuff. I need it to be close in case I need some supplies in the middle of a creation.
As time has passed, my studio began to spread out all over the place. In my normal living space, I could never allow this to happen, but for my art it is necessary and it is easy for me to go into that zone where I am the most creative.
My sewing machine is downstairs in the living area. With my new found attraction to the art of sewing, I am desperately trying to keep that area clean. But, as time goes on, I may have to move the sewing upstairs. "But where!" Eek..... I'll have to take more of my storage items to Mom's house and move into the closet! Ha!
