Studio porn

I love my studio! Now my studio pretty much encompasses my entire house. I have a box of materials near the couch, I have a journaling table in the kitchn, I have my sewing room upstairs, I moved my easel to the upstairs hallway and then of course there's the actual actual studio which is the biggest room upstairs. In short I think only my bedroom, shower and toilet have yet to be taken over by it. Give me some time. ;-)

From time to time I like taking pictures of my studio and details from my work spaces. It just makes me happy to look at all the goodies. If you're anything like me, you enjoy pictures like that too, so especially for you I share some studio pics with you. Call it studio porn!

Craft paints on my journaling table in the kitchen downstairs.

Totes full of pens and markers and other goodies. Underneath watercolour paints and crayons.

My sticker collection that gets used a lot for the journal. You can also tell I get most of them on sale, haha.

Fabrics in my sewing room.

A stack of colourful stuff set aside for use in a journal I'm working on.

My actual studio table is full of different mark makers. I swoon just looking at this.

Papers and stencils all happy together in a box to my right while I work.

This is just one box of tapes. I have another one at my journaling table. (I know.)

Recently I reorganized my acrylic paint in big boxes by colour, so I could actually find what I'm looking for.

My ribbon drawer! I have an extra basket for loose pieces of ribbon.

My worktable in the studio. My favorite place in the house.

My computer desk. That's where I'm sitting right now (laptop open of course).

I keep wanting to do an actual studio tour on my blog with details on how I store and organize things and such. But I'm kind of dreading the work involved. One day, really, one day...;-)

Hope you liked this peek at my artsy spaces and that you have a space of your own, no matter how small, to play. I know I'm ridiculously spoiled. It wasn't always this way, but I'm sure happy it is now. ;-)

Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy Wednesday!

    1. Actually the book shelves are a bright blue, but they do look a little purple in the pic. I am a lover of colour though.

  4. Swoon, swoon, swoon! It's this kind of sharing that got me to set up my own work table and start making some mess with paper, glue etc. Now I'm totally inspired (and worried... just where will the inspiration lead me THIS time) -- thank you!!

  5. How funny that you should write about this today...I was just thinking the other day about how I wished I could use my whole house as a studio, like you do! Thanks for giving us a peak at your lovely house...I'm always intriqued by other artist's surroundings. :)

    1. Thanks Jackie. I live alone so have the freedom to do whatever I want with my living space. It took me a while to realize that, but now I do the sky's the limit! :-)

  6. Gorgeous pics, Caatje! I think we all enjoy peeks into artists' work spaces. One of the great advantages of living alone must be the delicious SPRAWL for all of your art goodies!

    1. Thanks Andria. I love looking at other peoples' spaces too. It took me a ridiculously long time to figure out that I could use my entire house as a studio. I always thought that was 'not done'. Now I think it's necessary, haha.

I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
