friday follow-up

here's an "after" shot of the mess i had going last friday......all of those dust bunnies are now officially homeless (or have probably moved to another area of the studio) and i have my work area back again!!!  

and that pile of original artwork that was laying on my table is now organized in plastic sleeves and playing happily together in this polka-dot three-ring binder!

 as long as i was on an organization kick (this happens so rarely that i have to take advantage), i ordered this clip-it-up system from overstock.com (unfortunately, i can't find the item link, so maybe they're sold out.....)


there's a bit of assembly required.....

but in a very short amount of time, i had this beauty put together!
and just like joyful little kids on a merry-go-round,  
all of my rubber stamps are spinning freely where i can see them!  

and now that everything is in its place.....
time to get it all back out and do some work!
i hope your weekend is filled with lots of creative fun!

Wow. Your studio is almost as inspirational as your art. Nicely done!

Well done you ! Incredible result - though I liked it before too ! Have a lovely (relaxing) weekend !

PaperPumpkin said...

Ahhh, so the trick is to get everything up OFF the workspace...so I don't have to move my project to the kitchen table!! oh....I really like the merry-go-round for clear stamps...hmmmmm.

Wow! It looks great! My art space is on a card table set up in our extra bedroom. It's so small that my arm almost has to rest on the bed to get the card table in there. Being organized is a bit difficult, but I'm doing my best for now. I have dream plans for my studio one day and organization is part of it. Love your space Lori!

What a neat and well organized workspace - hope you get a bit of chaos back while you work - at least sometimes ;) Happy creative time!

Dolores said...

Well, now you can find all your things so much easier. I wish the organization bug would come over here for a while. BTW, can you show us what your chair looks like? Is it comfy?

You've done a grand job with organizing your work space! Makes me realize that I should probably get started with doing the same.
