I’m ready to get to work! I now have a nice big clean surface to work on my polymer:
and also an old wooden kitchen table for metal smithing:
I added some of my favorite things to the room, things that make me smile and things that inspire me. The “before” picture is actually part-way into the reorganizing process. The room was even more full of boxes and junk than the picture shows, but I forgot to take a “before-before” photo. Since I moved into this apartment I’d been using the space strictly for storage because I hadn’t really thought that I’d be getting back into my business again. It’s a pretty small room, but it’ll work just fine. The thing is, once I get my pasta machine out and all my clays and clay tools, and my vise and bench pin and all my metal smithing tools, and actually get started on some projects… this room won’t look anything like it does in these pictures! I’m a messy artist. (But we call it “organized chaos”, right?)
Guess I’d better get to work!
