Studio Remodel! :)

Over Christmas break I finally reached the place where I knew I was not only ready for a change in my studio but that it also needed to happen.  My XL desk that I had made myself turned out to be a cobweb of bad memories for me.  The wood itself was leftover from a project from the church we once loved, now looking at it brought up so much hurt that it needed to go.  Add to that the fact that I made that desk shortly after Doug's grandpa died and you have a not so happy combo of memories tied to the main piece of furniture in my room.  Though Grandpa's passing was much less messy and easier to manage than the whole church mess.  By far.  The time was right for a fresh start. 
Enter IKEA and Hobby Lobby (and Goodwill for lots of purging!!). All of the furniture you see is from IKEA including the blue carts.

I love that I can sit here and work and see what's going on outside {the view is the front of my house}.  I also love the love that is hanging on the wall here...various "hoho fan art" that I adore and cherish!
These fabric cubbies are from Target.  I started with one and just added as I went over the years.  They have held up quite nicely and are perfect for storing a lot of things.  The green sewing machine is one I use for heavy duty work and the dark brown one belonged to Doug's grandmother.

 This other desk holds my printer and embroidery machine.  Underneath my boxes and paper goods are stored.  A good skirt hides a lot.
This area is for shipping, cutting and creating necklaces.  The tiered thing was on clearance from Hobby Lobby and the washi holder is a ribbon holder from Joann.
Meraki is my word.  For the year and maybe for life.  It's a Greek word that means: This is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put "something of yourself" into what you're doing, whatever it may be. Meraki is often used to describe cooking or preparing a meal, but it can also mean arranging a room, choosing decorations, or setting an elegant table.

Kind of perfect, don't you think?

LOVE what you've done! And I understand parting with things that are connected to church hurt...been there too and it's hard.
