Where Bloggers Create 2011






My studio is in a closet 3 feet wide by 4.5 feet long. If you took a single size bed mattress and cut off 1.5 feet from one end of it and laid it down on the floor that would be my floor space. The images here are my sewing space only. It is 3 feet wide by 1 foot deep (on a shelf) so that is 3 square feet. Behind the sewing machine is my inspiration board. I set up my Indian gold trim holder (really a pants hanger with multi tiers) to add some interest to the shot.
My entire studio can be seen on a previous post entitled 'studio move.' I have one other work space in my apartment. I have set up a light table right on top of my sink in the bathroom. I draw and paint there.
Well hope you enjoyed the tour! Much *smiles* and creative hugs to you all, Norma

Thanks for dropping by!

  4. Sounds like a great little space to creat in! Do you ever read Where Women Create? It makes me laugh sometimes the fancy studios in there-though some are more modest I suppose. I use my kitchen table and a little desk and both are usually covered with stuff. Every so often I have a big tidy up and feel better bit then as I make stuff I gather things around to use. Ongoing cycle I suppose!

  18. I love seeing your work space, amazing to think it is so small, but I work in a small space too, the corner of my couch usually. Your treasures are fun to look at.

  20. I love it, Norma! I find it amazíng how the smaller the space, the more I am being inspired in this creative blog party. Sometimes the opposite has a tendency to overwhelm me. This tells me there are no limitations to creating and dreaming. I LOVE IT!!!!

    You've stirred me to make my own inspiration board. I love this party.

    Thanks for stopping by my beach room. Glad you liked it. I look forward to visiting.
    Much love!

  24. What an awesome use of space!! If one of my older kids happens to end up back at home, I willl definitely be working out of my closet. Now that I know what it's like to have a designated creative space, I don't think I could live without it! Thanks for visiting my blog today! I appreciated your sweet comments so much!

  25. I like your creative space! It's so colorful and inspiring. I had an office in a closet at work - the closet in my bosses office! She joked that when I got too rowdy, she just closed the door. Thank you for your nice comments about my space. Love, Linda

  28. Hi Norma, Thanks for stopping by! As you can see I outgrew my sewing closet but when I was younger and 4 children were home, young ones that is, I had just a sewing closet too and it was the same size, it is amazing what you can accomplish in a small amount of space if you have to! All you need is a little piece of your own heaven! Hugs and keep creating! Marilou

  30. No matter how small your place might be, you are happy to create. Creation does not need a large space, just a corner of table will do.

  55. Maybe small, but it packs a punch : ) And it looks like you have done a lot with the space you have, as long as it works and it is your very own space (mine started from a small corner, then closet to what I have now... all takes time).
    I like inspiration board.

    Thank you so much for visting my blog and for your kind words, Im looking forward to see what you will create next : )

    Happy summer and creating

  56. You've created a wonderful workspace for yourself. It's amazing how we, as creatives, can create our own spot to work our magic.
    Thanks for sharing your coveted space.

  57. Creativity comes from the enormous space in our heads. The actual square footage needed is optional. ;)
    I love your studio.
