First - The Bead Room
This is short round me at my bead sorting table. I don't work in this room, it is a spare bedroom, but I am supposed to put all my purchases in here, and then sort and sift and put away. Naturally, there is stuff all over the house but mostly in here, waiting messily for me to put it away.
Here's a close up of the table
Here is the sacred bead shrine
where on the right are seed beads, wood and shell beads, cabs and donuts and glass bead strands. On the left are lampwork, pearls, semi-precious stones, precious gems, findings and throughout, there are other miscellaneous beady treasures.
Here are a few more patient, unorganized beads and supplies, waiting for someone to get off her lazy beading behind and put them away.
Now for the room we affectionately call "The Warehouse".
These are bulk supplies, paints, paper, wood, soldering supplies, polymer and metal clay and related tools and miscellany. There are also several boxes of wire and jump rings for wire wrapping and maille work, as well as metal and acrylic sheet, just in case I need them.
Here is the other side of The Warehouse.
These are my favorite papers, glue, paints, pens, ephemera, printmaking supplies, etc. And peeking out from behind my favorites is my alleged workroom. For most folks, this room would be a front room, a living room, but for me, it is the workroom. I only work there when my health permits me to spend time sitting up straight. When I am feeling icky, I just sit in my lazy boy and work as much or as little as I can.
Here's a better pic of my workroom with me actually in it!
This room contains my drawing table, my bookcases (all full), my often-used supplies, my metal work table and my sewing and fabric area.
The drawing table
Complete with baskets of ink, pens and stuff, and a little pink pig heat tool.
The metal work table (the book in the foreground is a drawing journal complete with a personalized floral cover)
The sewing area (as well as the unofficial observatory)
And finally (I'll bet you are ALL glad to get to this point.) the dining or photo room (this one will get cleaned first!)
As you may have figured out, there are only two of us in this big ol' house. We have three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a front room, a dining room, a kitchen, a great room, a covered back porch and a giant garage. So of course, we have spread out all over. Hubby has a spare room and the garage, and some of the stuff in the Warehouse is his as well. We also share some, but not all tools. I am really picky about my hammers cutters and pliers, and hubby is cranky about his power tools and he claims ownership of the kilns. (We all know that is sooooo not the case, but he has to claim some real estate for himself. He is endlessly and endearingly indulgent of my craziness.)
So that's it. Unfortunately, I didn't have anything on tap that I could display due to other pending blog hops, so stay tuned for those. Here's the list of blog links with a big shout out to the wonderful Brenda Sue at B'Sue's Boutique! Happy Hopping to all you Bloggers!
