A few weeks ago I posted how my studio was a mess and I needed to reorganize. I finally feel like I have something that will work. What I did was divide the room into sections.
The long table used to be the everything table, but sitting there to do everything hurts my back after several hours. And I can't just sit in one place, its monotonous day after day. Also I notice my mind is not clear when there is too much around me. So this table is now dedicated to writing. My goal is to be a successful self-published author and have my own little publishing company. So I deserve a proper place to write.
Behind the drawing table and in the middle of the room is the painting area. I stand up when I paint, so I can step back from the canvas, and this gives me walking room. All paints are in this middle aisle, so no looking for where else they might be. Brushes and mixed media tools are also within reach.
Behind the painting area is my art journal and day planner nook. I decided that I enjoy working in journals most when I am semi-reclining. I can watch movies and everything I need is in this area. I can also read books here. I will have more close ups this week so you can see what supplies I have near me while I journal.
On the opposite side of the nook is where the babies and I sleep. No, we aren't on the floor. We sleep on two thick Japanese mattresses, amazing for my back but also, Finney falls off any sort of bed, so with this bed, he doesn't have far to drop. My next project for the bedroom side of the room is to cover those shelves with fabric. My friend, Lisa, gave me a ton of vintage hankerchiefs that I want to sew together to make a delicate Gypsy curtain, then velcro it to those shelves to beautifully cover them. I also plan to make some sort of wall hanging to make the bed area more private. I am thinking indoor teepee.
