Do you do the mad rush to clean up house when visitors are due? Well, a major reorganization and tidy up happened recently when Cut Out and Keep, a large craft social media site, interviewed me and shared pictures of my studio.  The studio tour was about my inspirations and how I made my space comfortable and organized.  I will expand on this interview here as I can go beyond the questions asked.

As you can imagine, it was a long overdue task - too much stuff!  I discovered some treasures I had forgotten. I put others into more logical boxes and places.  And I even destashed. These items will be going to the Grand River Bead Society's June meeting when there is a garage sale!

I switched to the Foldio3 because I need the room for tutorial photography in windowless basement studio.  (I dedicated my Modahaus TS400 for natural light photography of final projects upstairs).  That freed up my angle poise lamps for my main desk area so I could have concentrated light in addition to overhead lights. It is amazing what difference those lamps make. I pull them down low so the light is not in my eyes yet the work is illuminated.

I do resin work and sanding etc at the secondary desk.  It's where I keep chemicals, varnishes, glues and so on close at hand.  For safety reasons (having spent a whole career working in laboratories), I do not have my cups of tea at this desk!

I sewed up some inexpensive microfiber shower curtains to refurbish the old second hand folding screen I bought. Yes, I have even more boxes of storage behind that screen which is the under stairs area.

I found a secondhand computer desk which matched my IKEA desk and shelves for my Cricut.  Rather than go to the main workshop, I like to use the Dremel workstation which incorporates a light vice.  I can clamp other tools to it too. I move it, or the pasta machine nearer to my main desk whenever I need those tools.

Yup, spring cleaning is well worth doing for an enjoyable space to work in!
