  1. Congrats on the "new" studio! I find a reorganization to be extremely cathartic! Many wondrous things will be created in your new space... Here is a magnet I recomend as VERY strong - I use them for ceramic decorative pieces...

  2. Great job Joe! I especially love the peg board, I think that is next on my agenda for my metal smithing bench.
    I'm the same way Lorelei, I have to see things or I totally forget what I have.
    Happy almost Birthday.

  3. Thank you! Very inspiring! Excellent way of making your own smaller containers. That's how I would like it too if I had a magnetic wall. I still have a lot of things I want to sort for my own studio. Slowly but surely. But it will never be final, will it. Coz Jenny, you are so right, just the share reorganization creates new.

  4. Lorelei ~ I really appreciate seeing a 'messy' studio. It made me feel okay about mine. I think a messy studio/desk and a creative mind go hand in hand.

    I noticed in you fantastic video that your work table is raised on PVC pipe. What a great idea! I love the idea of bringing the table up closer to my eyes.

    Thank you again for inviting us into your studio and for being a terrific hostess. AND, thank you to your hubby. ~ Linda

  5. Lorelei, eCrafty.com has magnet's round that will fit the bottom of your jars. Its a cool store. Have fun shopping there. I think they are 3 for a dollar. Your going to buy so many maybe you can get a price cut.It doesn't hurt to ask.

  10. Very cool, better than a waffle iron:) The board has one problem, lots of more space to fill up with yummy beads. We all know that is easy enough to do. It's been fun watching you remodel your whole house with beautiful colors and it always helps to feel good about our space. On of my favorite things in life. Happy birthday tomorrow I think. Cherrei

  11. Looks great! I'm looking forward to working on organizing my studio more. I still haven't gotten any beads on the wall yet. You are going to just love the pegboard AND the magnetic wall. It'll be so great to have all the beads in front of you like that. I think you'll look forward to working in your studio even more than you already do, if that's even possible! Haha. I really appreciate the mention too, Love. Thanks! :)
