I have waited so long...

And here is my studio! I am so happy that I am about 90% done! I have waited so long to have my own studio (my very own space). I have not really decorated in there, some of the "fish" things are still up and the curtains...I am afraid that if I start to decorate, I will JINX it and Jordan will want his room back *smirk* The TV is a bit high, but works for me just fine. If it was in front of me...I may not get much done. I listen, more then watch...
This is my studio, as I walk in. The work-table space is HUGE and I have several different "work stations", so when I want to work on different things while something is drying...I can!
A little bit closer. Quite a few things in my studio, we purchased at auctions or sales (which help so much). The tables were purchased at a Police Auction $8.33 a piece! Can you believe it. The cabinets, 1/2 off at Shopko...
Here is one cabinet all organized (it probably will not stay that way). I love having my things in one space. No more running back and forth...no more mess in the kitchen and spilling into the dining room. I have my kitchen all cleaned up too, YAY!!
And here is the second cabinet. Can you believe I have gotten rid of some of my things and some things, are still in my porch? WOW! I have collected things for soooo long and have purchased some things, during some really good sales...
A table-top cubby hole...love having things within reach. I hope to be able to be a little more efficient (a girl can dream). That little table top thingy (with scissors and tools), is from Target and it is so handy, purchased that long ago...20 bucks!
And here is my fabric stash! I am a sick women...waaaaaay too much fabric! I don't think I will need another piece of fabric for a very looooong time! See, I could never see all of them, so I would go and buy more HA! This stand was purchased at an auction, it was only 20 bucks! Love auctions...you can find some pretty nice pieces, if you have the patience and the time...
And another area. More goodies and storage. I wish it were enclosed, oh well. There was one more corner with more things, behind my table-top cubby hole, but it was so bright in the room, it didn't turn out. Lots of natural lighting.

On the top shelf, in this pic...you see some of my older goodies. I had to put some neat things to look at too. I hope you enjoyed an "Inside Look" at my studio. I have not decorated yet...but I still love it. It has been a TON of work, but soooo worth it.

I hope ya all have a great evening. I am feeling a bit better...Knock on Wood! I hope to start working on some things...as a matter of fact, I am ITCHING too! I am sure my studio will not stay nice and clean very long. Hubby said, boy...you sure could make one BIG mess in here. I said YUP and I can shut the door! Toodles for now, ~Tonya
