thoughts on our workspaces, what we've done, what
we'd like to do and coping.
|Home is where the
heart is and my work room is where my
Everything is in big
plastic boxes under my bed. Sometimes I just drag
them out and sit on the floor and use the boxes as
a work surface. Sometimes I use a ridiculously
small TV table in the bedroom, and drop clay and
tools on the floor about every 5 seconds. Then
there's the coffee table in the living room which
is glass, so it makes a nice big work surface and
of course, there's always the dining room table.
And when things get slow
at work I have a nice
big glass countertop. I manage an art supply
store, so I'm never too far from the clay.
The word "organization" is not in my vocabulary!
|I have two rooms and
four work tables. No matter where you sit,
there is a project or two waiting to be worked
do many crafts and lots of sewing. I have
two sewing machines. One heavy one for
making teddy bears. The other takes over my
dining table. I have a table for
beads. A large work table for cut out cloth
and all kinds of things get worked on there.
Then I have a drafting
table for clay, books, rubber stamping and a lot
of other projects. My one big chair has a
mag light and a stand to hold my cross stitch.
My computer is in my
bedroom with a lot of books, magazines and about 3
or 4 hundred bears, dolls etc. Lots of books and magazines
in the other room. I don't think I will take
|Ok, I thought if I
got a bigger work area I might actually not have
as much clutter as I do right now. But from what I
see ;-) it seems that you just get more
stuff to fill it up then ROFL! Mine is a small (and I mean
small) table hidden at the back of the sofa in the
lounge. And another smaller table beside it filled
with everything I can pile on it. I really need to
get a bigger table. Wish I could get a whole craft
room. Now why didn't anyone think of that when
they made the place lol. My work surface is piled
with clay blocks, tools, pasta machine and leaves
me with a tiny place to work. Ok, I am going to
get that new table lol.
