Buttoneers! I am still knee deep in acrylic paints, watercolours, wool, embroidery thread, fabric and all of the other wonderful creative goodness my new studio holds.
I am drowning in a sea of buttons (I could think of worse things) and a wave of rainbow coloured cotton threads on wooden spools. I am surrounded with my hands in the air in surrender to the never ending pots of coloured pencils and felt tip pens and being held hostage by packaging confetti and ribbon spools!
Okay…okay…maybe I am being a little dramatic but seriously, this new studio is taking a long time to get together and I am still without my big gorgeous desk (thanks removal company :/ *sigh*) and I am still working from my sewing table. But, amongst the struggles for clear space to work and time out from unboxing, I wanted to share with you all another studio update, a step closer to the completion of the Eliston Button Headquarters and (hopefully) another leap towards me getting my creative mojo back. Thank you for coming for the ride!
You can find my Studio Update Part One here.
My beloved French artist sign is back in place above the studio door…
I am starting to separate my fabric up in to colours for easy use (of course I am!) and they may or may not be starting to take a rainbow shade order 😉
My beautiful Cath Kidston caravan sewing box is full of felt sample petals and new ideas for creative projects. I love this box so much and am glad it arrived here safe and sound.
Most of my wool is in my new cupboard and waiting to be arranged and a little more organised when I dig out the rest of it from vintage suitcases…
…and Mr Mannequin is getting his groove on to my cheesy music playlist (which may or may not include the Spice Girls) while we get a little more sorted and a little less stressy!
Fingers crossed I get sorted soon. I am looking forward to a bit more normality in my working days and a little more routine (Who have I become!?) which will in turn will (hopefully) bring new creative adventures for me to share with you all.
What do you think so far? I had some lovely emails about how you create your creative spaces and would love to hear from more of you! What do you think of the studio so far? Do you have any crafty organisation tips that could help me? I would love to hear all about it!
