WOYWW #124

I finally got my basement studio in decent shape. Most everything has been put away. Of course, I still need to find a place for the rocking horse clock.


I suspect I'll put it above the black roll-around cart next to my desk that I use as my cutting area.


But for now, I just need to move it out of the way because


this container is filled with Christmas paper, much of it scrapbook paper, and a bit of silk flowers.


Under the paper is the only brayer I own, along with some papers for using on monoprints. I suspect now that I have found my brayer, I will give monoprints another chance.

Speaking of other chances, I tried to get to everyone last week, but ended up missing a few when the computer briefly shut itself down. Have a great WOYWW and please visit Julia for the rest of the links to this really fun weekly Wednesday blog hop.

Looking wonderful, It makes a huge difference to have everything organized and in it's place! The fold down table is great, I'll have to get me one of those. Thanks for sharing and also for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.

Oh, your working room is so nice and clean! I have now a complete disaster in mine...
Some weeks (!) ago you asked about the gears you saw on my desk. You asked if it´s a rubber stamp. It´s Tim Holtz´s gear mask.

Is the microwave for crafting or for culinary necessaries? You will always have your WOYWW photo's of a record of your beautiful pure crafting space before creativity was unleashed ;)

Neil said...

Great looking space for you to create in. Enjoy it, those papers look lush!

Julia Dunnit said...

I gave up visitng last week, blogger kept giving me the most extraordinary messages about code not being saved and sending error messages. Blah.
Loving your re-vamped studio - so bright and organised. Really, I should take a lesson. Love that you're big enough to give mono prints another chance!!

Spyder said...

You should put your clock on the walleither to your left or right, but no in front of you, coz then you'll notice the time zooming by too quickly when you craft! Have a really lovely crafty week...
Happy WOYWW

KatzElbows said...

Monoprints! That sounds like such a good idea. I'll have to play. Thank you for the inspiration and congrats on your amazing studio.

And thank you so much for your words on my pear. I have decided to redo it, but I'm not throwing the orginal one out.

cheers, rachel #22

butlersabroad said...

How nice to see you back in your studio again Elizabeth.... and Christmas must be really on it's way if you're thinking about it too! You own more brayers than I do!

Hugs

Doone said...

I do love the abuse of grammer

so are all your other brayers, by implication, stolen?

Dxxxx

Healing Woman said...

You are so very organized. I like the fact that you have used a lot of black and white for your color theme-makes a basement working area seem so much brighter. One question that keeps coming to my mind, after all that work, and you really worked, what happens if the river overflows it's banks again? Have provisions been made for that? Sorry to be so curious, it's just that I would hate to see anything damaged again.

In regards to your tea post, your kitchen looks so inviting! I love the use of the candles and your table just gleams!

Elfcrafts said...

You have the most amazing craft room, and so tidy xx

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

WOW, organized is right and looks like a lot more space!! Is that a microwave on that cart? I bet special lunches are in order!!!.. hAVE a great WOYWW

Clare H said...

Oh wow so happy your room is back to being usable!

Dianne said...

so love your newly remodeled creative space. but Christmas paper? I'm not ready....lol! I have faith that you will do something brilliant with it...

SueH said...

You’re craft space is coming along very nicely Elizabeth and I can’t wait to see it all messed up again because more space means more mess, Lol!

You’re clock is really sweet and will look great above your desk where you can see it.

Happy Crafting!

If I had a microwave in my craft room, I would never move out. It is good to see you have things well set up again, and I love that rocking horse clock.

famfa said...

fairyrocks said...

Fantastic organizing. Your room with a rolly chair and cart looks very handy indeed.
I too have an underused brayer...hmmm thinking now. Thanks for sharing keep smiling and creating.

Shoshi said...

Lovely tidy room! It looks like a great space to work in. Mine's tidy this week too, after all the frenetic busyness of last week. Sorry I didn't make it visiting people last week on WOYWW because I was too busy and then too tired afterwards.

Happy WOYWW,

Jingle said...

Your new space looks great! Good sized, too! And yay for finding lost tools!!!

Dandelion and Daisy said...

Looks like the basement is getting back to "normal"....what a great space to work! Now, that you've found the brayer a whole new world of printing has opened up...just what you needed more things to do! Have fun.

Robin Panzer Art said...

I only have one sad little brayer too and it has gotten bumpy with gel and glue because I get going and forget to clean it quickly enough. Happy WOYWW!

like many others before me...so jealous of the work space, but on a good note hubby has finally agreed that I can shift Youngets into this box room, if and when Eldest son finally moves out! Hmmn that could be some time!!
In the meantime, a clean out is in order in here lol,lou, #124
