Welcome to my Art Studio!

I am so glad you stopped by to see my little corner of creativity!
This is how it has been for a while and I am going to be giving it a little makeover in a month or so, but this is what it is for now.
Click on the pictures to make them bigger.

My spot is in the back half of our family room....
The couch is the divider. It faces a coffee table and a big screen T.V.
The walls are actually a nice sage green. They look more robins egg than they really are.


It is my office also.
Aragorn (Lord of the Rings) keeps me company, sigh.....


Gotta have lots of supplies!


And cheerful friends near by.


I love vintage books.


Aragorn greets me every morning!
Next to my computer is a inspiration board.
I tack up anything that sparks my imagination.

My pink box is always handy




More supply storage


You can NEVER have too much Mod Podge or too many whatchamahickies!




This spot is the wall opposite my window....
My kitchen sink is right behind it.
That opening used to be my kitchen window before we did the additions.
Now I have NO windows in my kitchen.
That is why I had to have white cupboards.

I love using muffin tins to sort out my dodads.









Here are some characters living around my Studio.
Benny TRYING to be as cute as Lucky!

Granny Mermaid
I sculpted her with Fimo and a repurposed Barbie.
I shaved her hair off and put the Fimo right over all of her except her bendy arms.
It was really fun!

Gandalf was Holly's first fired clay sculpture.
Didn't she do an awesome job?!!


Lucky being especially sweet and cute!


I hope you enjoyed your tour!
Make sure you pop over to

Holly said...

Love it Lilysue! Thanks for showing us. It's so fun to look at all the supplies and storage ideas! ♥ Oh and yes, you gotta have some kitty's in the studio! ☺

I set up my scrapbooking station in the family room the same way you did with yours- with the couch as the divider. But then I have half of the guest room as my other craft place and half of the dinning room... Crafting is taking over! But nobody minds. ☺

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

Completely delightful! Thanks dear for sharing and blessings.

I love this party!

Jodie LeJeune said...

Hello LillySue!
Wow girl, you have a wonderful space!!! I love all of the cabinet and counter top space...and the windows let in so much natural light {sigh}
I enjoyed my visit so much that I had to scroll down and read more posts...we have so much in common!
Yep, I'm a motorhead...I have 2 Corvettes and a dragster!
Thanks to Karen for bringing us together...I'll be back soon!
everything vintage

Beansieleigh said...

"Hey!" I love your studio!! I thinks it's fun too, to see all the ways you store and organize... And I'm seeing some similar ideas that I have used too!.. The hanging produce baskets, the spice racks and canning jars, etc. I wish I could have joined in on this, but my little studio is a little TOO small I think. I have a large walk-in closet that I've organized nicely, but it would be too cramped and too close to take any decent pictures of. Still I'm happy to have it, and don't know what I'd do without it! In the meantime, I'm not done looking at yours! I'm betting there are new storage and set-up ideas in yours that I'd still like to try!

Steph Jordan said...

Oh my goodness! You are too cute and your space is so organized. I love it! Thanks for visiting my space too! Have a colorful day! Isn't this fun!!!

Creativity abounds in that studio of yours! It's so pretty and cheerful, you couldn't help but be inspired! I love that moon in your window so much! I don't know, I think I might get pretty distracted having Aragorn looking at me with those dreamy eyes of his....

Lori said...

Your room is so bright and fun! I love it! I, too, use a muffin tin to sort embellies after I'm done creating and before I can actually put the stuff away! I love the colored pails to hold tools and such. Such a fun room! I'm glad I stopped by!

Cathy said...

Oh, be still my beating heart! You have Aragorn as your screen saver? We are most DEFINITELY kindred spirits. :) And I adore your apothecary supply jars! It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance at this lovely event -- please feel free to stop by. As an admirer of Tolkien myself, much of my studio has an old world / Medieval flair.

Enjoy the party!

What a perfect set-up in the family room, but yet separate (and very neat, I might add). OMG, I love your kitty cats! I have an orange Maine Coon male and two Maine Coon females. They are the absolute center of my life. THanks for sharing your studio.

chicroses said...

WOW! I like your art room. Did you have the shelf that the roll about sit under fitted just to clear the top of the roll abouts? Like that. What a great place to do your art..sally

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I am a little late to the party, but better late than never. My daughter, the fashionista, will soon be leaving the nest for her new apartment. I will have the luxury of decorating her old room (specifically the closet) as my creative space. I cannot wait and will incorporate many of the wonderful ideas you have shared here. Thank you.

Amanda said...
