I am so happy to be a participant in
Karen Valentine's, of My Desert Cottage,
Where Bloggers Create 2012
I apologize ladies, I'm late! I have been working my little fanny off getting ready for my summer shows. So I had a choice, clean the workshop up, top to bottom, or just shoot it like it is...a working studio? I chose the later!!
So you are seeing the workshop in its workaholic stage!
Kind of a mess, but constructive!
Here is where most of the beading gets done.
See all those little beads in separate containers?
That's because we are snowbirds, and move twice a year.
Can you imaging moving your workshop twice a year?
You learn to get very compartmentalized for sure.
Here are some recent things I'm working on for classes, still compiling samples and prototypes.
And jewelry is sitting out all over the workshop, being priced and tagged for my next show, in a week. And only one more after that, but the studio is buzzing with projects!
Here is my soldering station. Kind of a mess, but it gets used every single day!
Here is my jewelry bench, not cleaned up, not pretty, but here it is!!
I have to have everything in small containers so we can pack it all up and move it in May and September! There are lots of plastic organizers. And rhinestones of course!!
Here is a shot of the show the first weekend of June. Thought I would show this shot, so you can see how the workshop looks when all cleaned up and looking pretty!!
I have a workshop on the other end too, in California. Maybe one year I will post pics of that one so you can see it as well.
Thanks for visiting my studio, loved sharing it with you.
I hope to get around to visit as many of yours as I can. I hope to see you on Facebook, be sure to friend me, and maybe meet you where I'm teaching one day, either on line, at Artful Gathering, or one of my workshops!
Take care, happy workshop hopping!
