My new studio space

I am so excited to share my adventure of moving my studio. I am in this old brick building, that I must remember to show you next time. It is in the old part of Missoula and right next to the train tracks. The neighborhood has a ton of character and many artist live there.

Today is my first day to start moving in and I thought it would be fun to show the progress of me building my work space.

I went to the thrift store the other day looking for some type of storage cupboards and instead found this funky old chair for just a few bucks. I also got this small work table that will be my shipping area.

This wicker tea cart has front wheels and I loved it. I am not sure yet how I will use it but it has such charm that I wanted it in my space.

So here is my space in stage one. Creating a lovely, functional work space has me so excited.

My current space is a shared extra bedroom. Mitchell is a painter and has half the room. My space ends right past the curtain.

This is the shipping area. It looks like a tornado hit due to the whirlwind of the holiday rush. After I grab the appropriate shipping supplies I sit down in the living room in front of my computer to write Thank You cards and package up the goodies.

I am thrilled to get my house back in order and hopefully have normal work hours. Maybe achieve days off, get out my Yoga ball and not worry about those pieces of headpins stuck in the carpet puncturing it!

To be continued...

I love seeing pics of other workspaces. I have also been moving into a new studio with brick walls built around a huge boulder.

It's always so exciting and refreshing to set up a studio. I've been working on getting mine together. Best of luck!
