If you’re like me, whether you have your own art studio or a craft room or space in your home, one of your biggest challenges is storage and organization. When I used to primarily just do oil painting in my studio, the space and storage was more than adequate, and I have loved it for years. And considering that my husband built my studio for me himself, I love it even more for that reason. But sadly, with all the new types of altered art and mixed media projects I’ve been doing, I have simply outgrown my studio. I need more storage, and more space, so that I can get organized and have plenty of room to do what I love to do: create!
I am in the process of designing a new studio, which we’ll be creating in some unused/unfinished attic space we have in our home. So I’m in full design and planning mode. I’ve been buying books about studio design, and looking online for any photos I can use for inspiration. I have some really wonderful ideas and it’s helping me as I plan my new creative space.
Just this evening I happened upon a great blog…you know how it is when you go blog hopping: one thing leads to another and you’ve visited a ton of blogs. It can be quite fun! It can also be so wonderful when you find one that will help you with something like planning for your crafty storage and organization. The blog I found is called simply, Crafty Storage. And that’s exactly what it’s all about.
No matter what size of space you have to work with, you are sure to find some great storage ideas on the Crafty Storage Blog. I’ve found so many great ideas there already, I just know I’m going to incorporate many of them into my new studio. So I really just wanted to share that link with you, in case you are looking for some crafty storage ideas as well.
