Since taking these pictures of my new studio space, I've gotten an additional 6 foot table to have a bit of a space for packaging up orders. It's on the wall where the small shelving unit is. I like my new space! And I think I've narrowed the colors down to 2 options. A nice GREEN or possibly a Teal Blue.
I want something bright and cheerful. Still have to get a new chair. These folding chairs that I use are probably why my back always hurts, Umm, ya think?? Really?? So here is a Before pic.
you remember how the studio was before? super small
Now the studio resides in the bigger of the 2 spare rooms. Some pictures have notes on them, click them to see them bigger.
The room is actually really large. what you don't see is, the closet and dresser on the other side of the room. There is more space to grow into it. The only thing about the tables is- they are low. And it hurts to stand over them looking for beads. And now that I've moved everything around, I spend 50% of my time searching for the beads I need for a project. If I had higher tables, maybe that would help?Of course, a bigger room only means MORE BEADS! The bead collection is growing. and growing. and growing!
Yesterday, I begged Joe to put up the bird feeder in the yard so now if I sit just right I can look out my windows see it and I am hoping the birds find it soon! We have some cute chickadees nesting in the Gourd bird house we have hanging on the front porch!
Also yesterday, we broke down and decided to grow some veggies this summer. So we went to Lowe's and bought one of these planting trays. It's made by Ferry-Morse Seed Company. Each tray holds a pellet (72 trays) and you poor warm water over the pellets and they expand into this little 2 inch high planting pod. You throw a couple seeds in, and put the tray on and in 1-2 weeks you have started plants. This is our first time doing anything like this, so it was kind of fun, and almost like a science project! We planted hot peppers (for Joe), sweet peppers, 2 kinds of tomatoes, scallions, green beans, snap peas, brussel sprouts, and cucumbers. Wish us luck!
