I trust everyone had a very safe New Year's event loaded with lot's of fun with good times and great memories with wonderful friends. As for myself, my hubby and I decided to be a little low key this year since I am still mending from the hysterectomy of last month and to top it off I managed to get a massive kidney infection, all of which did not lend much to having a lot of fun doing crazy things like leaping over bonfires and such. However, I did enjoy the peace and quiet of my new surroundings and the small fire works display created by my new neighbors on the other side of the canal behind my house. As I was enjoying my surroundings, the song by Louis Armstrong come to mind It's one of my favorite songs of all time. I thought, what a wonderful song to start the New Year off with because, after all, it is a wonderful world in which we live.
Other than the arrival of the New Year, I did manage to get my studio completed...for the most part. There are still a few things that I might re-arrange later down the road, but for the time being, it is in working order and organized, and THAT is all that matters. Some of you have already seen the pictures of my new studio space posted up on Face Book, however, for those that do not follow me along there, I thought I would include those pictures here for you to look at. In all, I love my new space. It has ample lighting, plenty of storage areas and a lot of room to move around in. I think you will agree once you see the pictures. Also, you will find on my work bench, some up and coming projects that I will be finishing soon. There are 4 more paper clay dolls that are bald and beautiful now, but they will soon be completed with hair and trimmings. Also, sitting behind them in plastic bags, you might see parts of more paper clay dolls that have been in the works for some time waiting to be finished up as well. Anyway, let me know what you think of my work space. I would love to hear your feedback!
|The Work Bench! For those who want to know, I got the work bench at |
Harbor Freights at a VERY reasonable price and it's fantastic!
|Storage space with rolling cart underneath.|
The Sewing Table with nice shelving above.
Rolling storage cart and the doors to the studio.
My collection of art books and more storage space. Also a sketch box easel in
the corner near the door, ready to go on a moments notice!
My storage closet and my large floor easel leaning against the wall.
Storage closet with the door closed to hide all the art paper supply and stuff.
What is currently on the work bench!
4 paper clay dolls ready for wigging and trims. You can barely see a plastic bag
sitting behind them with more paper clay dolls that are in the works too!
Ribbons I have won in the past for my paintings and illustrations from various
art show competitions in my area.
Additional storage I confiscated in the family room just outside of
my studio! All organized so that I can find things easily. :-)
That concludes the tour of the studio at The Pixie Knoll. I hope you have enjoyed taking a peek into my new work area. Hopefully, there will be lots of creating going on in here very soon. As for now, it's time to take down all the Christmas decorations and get the rest of the house looking like the normal every day living space so that I can get on with creating in the new studio!
In the meantime, don't forget I still have "Lorna" up for Ebay auction. She has just over a day left....her auction ends on Sunday night roughly about 7:30 p.m. EST. So, if you were considering on bidding on that paper clay cutie, now is the time to do it before it's too late! Here is her link to make it easy for ya!
As always, thanks for following along here at The Pixie Knoll!
