A "room" of her own...

via junkaholic

How fabulous is this little crafting shed?  Usually when I think of a "studio", I think of a much larger space...there are lots of spacious craft/art rooms to be viewed on Pinterest, or just while blog-hopping, but I'm always attracted to tiny, well-thought out spaces.  This is one of my favorites, and more importantly, it seems quite do-able in my home.  Looks to be about the same size as my enclosed back porch.  Even in the dead of winter, if the sun shines the temperature is quite moderate in the little room.  Maybe this could turn into my new project for one of my favorite weeks of the year...the week between Christmas and New Years...but only if it's sunny!


I've had lots of ideas for projects lately...that's what happens when my brain overloads with other things to think about and do.  I can be sitting at a stoplight and have a gigantic flash of inspiration, yet when I have time to do creative things, I always seem to be disinclined...why?  Choices...clean the house/sit and knit? iron/read a book? mop the floor/take a nap?  I always seem to go for the less active choice...after all, an unmopped floor will be there until I do something about it, but that urge for an afternoon nap is fleeting.  Problem is, I now have lots of chores stacked up to do and it's interfering with my playtime. After all...wouldn't it be nice to be clean and organized all the time so that making those "hard" choices wouldn't so significant.  Something more to think about today...

Oh that is sweet! And you have such a space? Wow. Even sweeter. This makes for a great inspiration photo in that case. I have similar things happen to me...flashes of inspiration that hit when I'm heading off for bed or when it doesn't seem practical and nothing when I have the time. It's ridiculous!

I have an enclosed back porch that is about 6' x 12' with a door that leads to my kitchen and a door to the tiny back yard. Not much going on out there...but I currently have a small table and chairs and a bakers rack holding a few hardy plants. I put a bound carpet on the floor a few years ago, and I have matchstick blinds and flour-sack cafe curtains there...not much, but on the few days a year I use it, it's enjoyable. To be able to use it for a little craft area...a "neat and tidy" little craft area--that would be ideal. Something to ponder, for sure.
