Open Studios Tour

Studios Magazine is having an Open Studios tour online this weekend. I thought it sounded like fun, so I am posting the photos of my studio. Since I have been featured in their magazine already, I thought it would be fun to post some before and after pictures. When my studio was new, it so clean and now, well, it's been worked in. I find it impossible to keep it completely clean. Plus, I could always use more space, but isn't that always true? So take a look around and enjoy the photos...


Okay, those were the beautiful before pictures, now here is what the studio usually looks like. I will be at an art fair this weekend, so I have been getting ready all week, there's been no time for cleaning.


Hope you all enjoyed the tour..have fun visiting other studios, I know I can't wait to see where people create.

Happy Saturday,
Jennifer

  1. Oh I am so glad... You are a mortal after all!
    My studio is HORRENDOUS! And you are absolutely right that it is impossible to keep clean. But I have always been quite a horder and a packrat...you never know when you will need that widget...(helps my found object pieces immensely though!) I had the same problem as a child, the lived in look. My mom used to plead with me to clean my room...one day I told her "Creative minds are rarely tidy"...well...you can imagine what she thought of my creative mind! Funny...even back then in like 6th grade I labeled myself a creative, but I never acted on that until I was in my 30s! I know you will be having a blast with your art fair this weekend.
    Enjoy the day!

  8. Jennifer - if this is what you call messy, I should introduce to you to what a real wreck can look like! Your floor is still cleaned off. I loved your studio when it was featured in the magazine. It's so nice to see it "lived in" as well.

  15. I am smitten over your studio! Such bright and cheery colors and open spaces! My studio is a dining room table which is horribly cluttered with stuff. Sigh. Someday I hope this will change. Sigh again.

    Thanks for sharing both the before and the after!

  23. jennifer, I actually prefer the messier version. It looks real and lived in. And, there's something a little more freeing about being messy. (~:

    And what a fun place to work!!!! I would luuuuuv to have a couch in mine.

    Blessings
