Wowee!! A Workspace Wednesday post you say!? No way!? Haha! It has been a while and I wanted to just pop in to share a little mini tour of the new Eliston Button Headquarters and would you believe it – it’s a Wednesday and it’s my Workspace! Hurrah! Also, what do you think of the new banner!? Snazzy huh!? It was definitely time for a change especially as the workspace in the old banner isn’t even my workspace anymore!
So, if you are a newbie Buttoneer or even just a bit forgetful (that’s you Saree!) there is a bit of catching up to do. In a nutshell, my fiancé and I bought our first bought house together after renting for almost 10 years (Blimey!) the day after my birthday (and the day after the completion of my 27 before 27 blog challenge and the opening of the Eliston Button Esty Shop!) last June (nice and stressful!) Over the last 9 months we had house problems and various other issues (not with each other!) so my studio became a slow process of trial and error, seeing what worked, unpacking and repacking just to have to unpack again, until today. Over this time I have also shared little snippets of the Eliston Button Headquarters in Part One and Part Two of my mini studio updates in my Workspace Wednesday posts, but this is the most up-to-date. Things have been moved and changed and shuffled around so much that I hardly recognise the older photos of this space and it feels a life time ago that my studio was in a bedroom at our old rented house (I really need to finish the studio and update that page!)
So, I am so excited to share with you some little doses of my creative space to keep you going until I am all done and can reveal the whole thing (for the love of chocolate, let that be soon!) which is more than likely going to be when I have (hopefully) completed my Create 28 blog challenge and have
some more free time my life back!
For now, grab a cup of tea and explore the Eliston Button Headquarters and think of it as an aperitif to the main dose of my crafty sanctuary!
Phew! There is still a long way to go but the beauty of this post is that I could hide all of the unpacked boxes, escaped buttons, tangled cotton reels, unravelled balls of wool, mountains of to-do lists, Create 28 rejects and unfinished projects! As I mentioned before, hopefully when Create 28 is over I can concentrate on creating a more organised creative space, but for now, I am super happy with the way it is starting to come together and loving how super pretty it all looks! I will get there eventually and I am so glad I could share with you my work in progress (until I decide to change it all around again! *Kidding* – I think I just gave my fella a fright!)
I am back on Friday with the next instalment, so keep your pretty little peepers peeled! Meanwhile, I would love to hear what you think of the Eliston Button Headquarters so far? Do you have any craft supply storage solutions you can share? Is there a part of the studio you are eager to see? I would love to hear all about it!
Meet me for a chat with a cup of tea in the comments below. I’ll click the kettle on!
