Like i promised, my organized studio

2 shelves from Ikea, 8 hours of work and endless items!
are you collecting craft tools, materials, beads, boxes like i am? do you HAVE to buy the new cookie cutter on sale?
I guess the answer is yes :), we have to have it all! just can't resist the temptation of buying the new hottest tool/thing!

I read so many posts about messy studios, i am curious, is it the same with other craft fields? anyway, after putting everything in place (now i can't seem to remember where i put this/that), everything looks much better - canes in boxes (did you notice most of them in hummus boxes? i just love hummus), cookie cutters in shoe boxes and hummus boxes, tools in a cup with a cool organizer i got as a gift from Julie Picarello, hand cream is ready just in case, a memo board is hanged in place and don't forget the big red bookcases for all OTHER items - it's a pleasure getting in my studio and work now!

  1. You are very lucky to have a studio. I have a corner!! I'll post some pics on my blog sometime and show you the link.

  2. Looks great Iris! Man as a polymer clay artist, you sure can collect a lot of tools and materials. I know I do! Could really use a big organization of my studio. Need to move to a bigger room but too busy to get around to it. Like what you've done with yours! Must be nice to walk into your studio every morning to a clean place!

  3. Your studio looks great! I love the Ikea furniture as well and just reorganized our studio -- did a weeks feature on it with storage ideas.
