"Studio" Reorganization - yet again...

So, my "studio" is a corner of our guest room/office, but I try to make the most of this.  It requires constant reorganization as I acquire new things (hey, maybe if I just stopped doing that, huh?)... A couple of weeks ago I was at a vintage/antique show, where I got a couple of old, rusty tool/tackle boxes for a great deal at the end of the day.  They're meant for decoration, but I put them to work!  I love anything with lots of cubbies for organization, plus they're relatively portable.  So since I spent most of a day organizing and filling them last weekend and have no art to show for it, I thought I'd show them to you...

I love how this one opens up...

This fishing tackle box has great adjustable spots on top for things like brads and nails and tiny things....

And since I LOVE seeing other people's studios and art areas, and seeing how they organize things, I thought I'd include a few pictures of my "corner", since my camera was out.... Admit it, just looking at it is making you claustrophobic...

And finally, I just had to share a couple of pictures of this fabulous hat my boyfriend bought for me at a garage sale!


  1. that tackle box just makes me drool. it's like porn for artists. thanks for the peek into your creative space. awesome hat.

  2. Ooh, I loved sneaking a peek into your art space - those old tool boxes are GORGEOUS!

    The hat is fantastic, well done to fabulous boyfriend for spotting that hat for you!

  3. Fantastic "share" Terri :D I love all your storage bits..mmmm..wonder if hubby has one of those tool boxes in the shed? :D XXX

  4. Your boxes are brilliant - so much nicer than the plastic alternatives.

    It's lovely seeing where you create..... no I don't feel claustrophobic at all just wishing I could come round to play..... darn that big pond!

    Your boyfriend sounds a real sweetie.... I remember you saying how he is a good fixer of things too :)

    Have a good weekend.....


  5. Gorgeous artwork and beautiful blog Terri... love the tackle box... and the shots of your studio... the hat is wonderful... what an awesome garage sale find...

  6. Love those photos! To be quite honest, my crafty kitchen looks a lot worse. Your tool boxes are great; I have the more modern version made of plastic, not as pretty, but functional! Valerie

  7. Ohhhh, this is awesome! SO much fun to see - and I love all the little bits and pieces and the ways you have organized it. And what a sweet boyfriend ;0
    Oh! And I do see some room left to the right in that tackle box - so yeah, there's still room for buying more ;) xoxo

  8. Ooh, those tool boxes are fabulous (I am now coveting them!). I have loved looking round your work space and seeing where you create - it's fabulous, and your storage shelves are works of art in themselves! Your labels on the shelves are gorgous and I have a strong urge to rummage!
    I love the baseball cap - what a fantastic chap you have there!
    Thanks so much for the nosey around - it's been great!
