Merging two studios into one is… tough! I think I had more stuff at school than I realized. I have most (not all! My grad piece is currently being stored at school) of my stuff home, and it is nice to have everything in one place, but there’s so much of it. I’ve had two studios for the last three years, which means duplicates of most tools and lots of supplies. I have three sewing machines, and at least six pairs of sewing scissors.
These are some images from my studio, although not too recently. I’ve been spray painting some stuff (such as the basket you see in the picture below) with really bright colors – blue, green and orange. I ran out of pink, and will be doing a bit more with that when I get some more. Also, we finally ordered my “Christmas” curtain rods on the weekend, so I’ll be making some curtains this week, probably.
So I’m trying to sort and get rid of some stuff, but some it, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to throw out. I guess the solution is…. find a new studio! Well, when I can afford it, I hope to get a studio that’s not in my basement. As much as I love this little studio, it’s just me, and I could benefit from a place in a more external community.
And the Morphoids take up a lot of room…. I think they’re multiplying! I have to keep them and their abrasive materials away from “the softer stuff.” Some of them are still at school for the grad show, so I don’t even have them all at home. I don’t know what I’m going to do with them when I get them home.
