When my younger daughter was born in early 2009, I gave over my dedicated art-making space to be a nursery. My work table, books, notebooks, boxes, papers, files, pens, paints, totes, brushes, ribbons, buttons, glues, stamps, punches, ink pads, scissors, and all the rest found an uneasy home in the playroom/living room downstairs.
With the addition of a sewing machine, my workspace expanded into the dining room.
As itinerant as it made me feel, the one truly driven nuts by the crafting overflow situation was my husband!
When our girls decided they wanted to share a room, we jumped at the chance. It was a win/win/win--they got to share a room (and act like banshees every night at bedtime), I got my craft room back, and my husband got my crafts out of his constant line of sight!
It was so "meant to be" that it only took a few hours to get everything back upstairs and into place two Saturdays ago.
For me, it is a creative haven of art-making bliss!
The two little urchins are never far away!
I leave you with a couple cute pics of my "studio mascots":
