Sometimes it's good to rearrange things. Is there such a thing as nesting in a craft studio? That was me today. Reorganizing. Nesting. Rearranging. De-cluttering.
I have 2 tables in my craft room. I used to work at the long table, and used the short table to hold all of my bead bins. But the bead bins have multiplied, and I had to stack them on the table. This didn't help the creative processes because half my time spent was searching for beads! Here are some before shots:
Now I've rearranged it so that the bead bins are all on the long table and my work space is on the short table. I have a better view, more natural light, more work space, and I can see all of my beads at a glance. I removed all the hinged covers on my bead bins. I rarely travel with my beads so I figured this was a good plan.
Dug out some of my pottery collection today too. My Aunt Becky is the most talented artisan in my family and she has given me and my mom and sister pots from her collection over the years. I usually snag a bunch from my mother whenever I go home to visit. I am trying out a new photography technique by showcasing my jewelry against a pottery backdrop. I like the outcome! This is one of Aunt Becky's pots. Pretty, right?
