Topics Covered In This Video:
* Today I’m going to give you a tour of my Studio and talk a little bit about organizing your craft space into zones.
* It doesn’t really matter whether you have a tiny little workspace, like your Kitchen table… or you have a super giant one, like a whole separate building.
* If you have a lot of craft supplies, you need to organize them in a way that you can get access to them, and also be able to put them away properly when you’re done.
* Otherwise you run into problems like buying the same product over and over because you didn’t realize that you already had it.
* So, I wanted to show you how I organize my studio.
* A lot of you have been requesting a studio tour… and I did show you when it was crazy messy a while back.
* But I have done some clean up and organizing since then.
* Still not perfect yet, but it is good enough to show you how it is all set up.
* I have my space allocated into the following zones…
* Workspace – where I have all the supplies, clay, tools and findings within arms reach for making polymer clay jewelry.
* Paints – all (or most) of my paints, finishes and liquid clays are stored on a shelf above my workspace.
* Publishing – Laptop for writing posts, web research and communicating with students.
* Office Cabinet – Cabinet with manuals, paper and other supplies needed for the office.
* Inks and stamps – alcohol inks, stamp pads, spray inks, stencils and rubber stamps stored in drawers and trays, in one area.
* Craft Bins – miscellaneous craft supplies stored in a wall of plastic drawers. Each drawer has a different supply, such a small ribbon bits in one drawer and feathers in another.
* Office Supplies – Drawers with pencils, pens, rulers, scissors, glue sticks, etc., in one skinny tower of drawers.
* CD Player and CD’s next to it.
* Baking Area – Top of metal cabinet has my convection oven and all the baking supplies such as oven thermometer, baking trays, bead racks, tins of cornstarch, etc.
* Rock Tumbling Area – Rock Tumbler and containers of sanding substrate stored together. There is an electrical plug close by so the tumbler can run, right where it is stored.
* Metal Card Cabinet – Metal drawers are filled with overflow clay, tools, color recipe chips and other supplies. I would love to paint this cabinet a bright color and reorganize the drawers some more.
* Dressform – Vintage dress form of my Grandma Edna’s, is a great place to store my lab coat for the PcT Test Lab videos. I didn’t mention it but it is also a great place to test out necklace lengths and to see how the piece will drape on the body.
* New Products for Demo Bins – In this rolling drawer unit I keep all the new products that I plan to create demo videos for, as well as the product test samples for the test lab videos.
* Book Case – Stores all my books, magazines and a variety of nic knacks, including my vintage treadle sewing machine that was my Grandma Hanna’s.
* Cord and Chain Storage – A slot wall units with hooks and rods store all my cording, beading wire, beading thread, needles and similar items.
* Peg Board – A painted wood peg board on the back of my door, stores miscellaneous supplies that are better off seen, than forgotten.
* Storage Cupboards – Two tall storage cupboards store items that are used in the studio but don’t need to be seen such as cans of acetone, solvents, buttons, paper, Scrapbooking supplies, die cutting machine and dies, etc.
* The write ups for my last 5 studio zones (Scrapbooking Shelves, Center Island, Sewing Station, Polishing Station, Metal Working) were tool long to include in this space, but you can to my blog (link below) for the full descriptions.
