My "workspace"

Well, here goes. In my dreams I have an ideal workspace, a studio, a loft, somewhere just for me. But alas, that is a dream, so here is the reality: I work where I can, when I can.

It may be the office,

it may be the dining room table,


it may even be outside on the deck if the weather is good (my favourite place to paint!)


I figured if I wait for my perfect space I will be missing out on a whole lot of creating! My poor family puts up with me. I seem to leave a trail behind me and more often than not the table is too full of paint and brushes for us to be able to eat at it!

Ok, ok, gently now.... this photos the 'in progress' one!

  1. I hope that you get a workspace soon. I used to have it like you. And I was spending a lot of time unpacking and packing stuff. Making stuff in the garden are so nice! I also do that when we got summer here in Norway.

    Thank you for sharing!

  8. I have a room to my self and quite enjoy it. The best part is it has a door I can close on my mess :) Would LOVE to be able to paint outside, but when the weather is nice enough here - we have flies and mosquitoes.

  15. Looks great. We all dream of a special place. Frankly, I'd love to have a special placed to organize and store materials. I'm perfectly happy in the family room because that's where we all gather.

    What's a 'dining room table'? LOL

  16. Looks good....it is nice to have a dedicated space but sometimes I feel out of the loop!

    Also love to sew on the deck...I can be seen in the summer dragging sewingmachine and everything up to it.

  20. Whatever works for you is exactally right, so dont be embarrased!! Mine is normally a huge mess, but since I dont have half of my stuff, its only half a mess.

  23. I hope you get a space all your own soon! I will be taking over our new second bedroom as a sewing room/tv room/guest bedroom. It should be interesting. It's all a journey, right??

  31. Sometimes I don't think we could create if we had clean clear spaces! Like painting that first stroke on the white canvas; but once made it is easier to make more!
