Sarah and I were thrilled when the lovely people at Cloth, Paper, Scissors asked us if we would like to be interviewed for a special feature they were doing on Mother and Daughter Creative Teams in the Studios Magazine (Summer 2011).
Apart from the thrill of being featured, it also prompted us to do a big tidy up of our creative space which was an added benefit. Here is a peek at a couple of the pages showing our Studio.
Studios Magazine is not widely available in Australia, so it was lovely to receive our complimentary copy this week and have a good read of it. There are loads of lovely studios featured and it has given us a few good ideas of how we can make the best use of our space.
Here are a few more peeks into our Craft Room…
Our Craft Room doubles as a guest room a few times a year. When guests arrive we fold away the work tables and move the sewing machine out, and set up the guest bed which is stored in the adjacent ensuite bathroom when not in use.
My son regularly joins us in the craft room to paint his models, which he finds is a good stress reliever when he needs a break from his Year 12 study.
Looking at these pictures is a good reminder for me to do another tidy up! The hard part is keeping everything in the Craft Room in its place, especially with three of us working in there! (The room is 11 ft 8″ x 11 ft 4″; 3.5 x 3.4 metres).
I am off to the Craft and Quilt Fair this week – I will be trying hard not to add too much more to my ever growing stash! Wish me luck…
