Today I’m playing in What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday – an opportunity to peek at people’s workspaces. I’m not sure why I love seeing creative spaces, but based on the number of people who play in this challenge weekly, clearly it’s a widespread curiosity.
So here’s my studio table:
I’m working on a necklace, and in the early stage where I need to stare at bits for a while and let additional inspiration percolate. If you’ve been hanging around here this month you know I’m playing in Lori Moon’s May Flower Challenge (who btw is also playing in today’s WOYWW) and I’m consumed with flower thoughts. I’ve got some of my necklace bits laid out on a flower-inspired papercut sheet and I’ve got a paper flower out for inspiration.
Here’s a peek off to the side with one of my favorite apothecary-like many-drawered chest where I keep little bits and bobs. And it’s a perfect example of how I cannot resist hanging things from knobs. It’s an addiction I tell you.
Here are two things that delight me. The name of my studio space Studio Bibelot spelled out in scrabble tiles. I have no idea why this delights me so, but it makes me smile every time I see it. And the little pink depression glass footed-bowl where I keep a rotating assortment of special inspirational bits.
This is one of my favorite hangings. I did my first heart-headed women many many years ago as paper cuttings, but they continue to appear in many forms. This is from a time when I was playing around with painting on fabric.
And finally one more picture of a dear friend, one of my studio mascots Rosie Crow. She was done by folk artist Toni McCorkle.
So there you have it a little peek into Studio Bibelot. Have a story about your working space? An object that inspires you or something you’d like to have? Do tell, you know I love to hear.
