Some Studio Pictures

When we first moved into our home, 3 years ago, we never used this space. It's up on the 3rd floor and although it is a finished space, there was no heat (or A/C for that matter) so it just was always uncomfortable to be up here. Well, when my daughter was born we needed the space I was working in for her bedroom. I got sent upstairs. Last spring my lovely bought me an awesome gas heater on super duper clearance and last fall, he & my dad ran gas lines and installed it. Then my mother in law moved from a house with no A/C to a home with central air, so we hit the jackpot on A/C units! So, here is my warm in the winter (thank you honey and dad) and cool in the summer (thank you ann) studio space! I love being up here, I am usually in this space all day (that is why there is a fridge and coffee maker) and the kids have most of their toys in the family room next to me. There is still a lot of decorating i would love to do and many other things I have roaming around in my head for some rainy day, but take a look~

This is a shelf Scott built me that spreads across the 3 front windows. Love how the light hits the glass jars I have my buttons in.


A Wish banner I made awhile ago.


Just a few of my many ribbons...


Another view of the front windows.


We picked these old Pennsylvania House cabinets up off of Craigslist for $100 for both. My mom & sister helped me paint, then sand then stain them. Love how they turned out.


My workspace! I am here anytime I am not at my computer working.



Hope you liked the glimpse at my studio. Now, back to soldering for me!


~EDIT~
10 minutes later the studio is looking more like it normally does...
