Operation Studiop Cleanup: Day Two

Here are some photos of the Studio.. coming along nicely but I still have a long, long way to go.

Remember this table? It was once covered with a stack of paper so high it was unuseable. There were boxes and totes piled next to it in the entryway, which have since been removed. A few knick nacks remain, which will need to be removed before the sewing machine and paper cutter can return to their rightful homes. However, it is nice to be able to walk into the room without fear of tripping or breaking something (my neck!).

I re-installed the cupboard door. This makes a huge difference in the room already, being able to close the door on the mess inside. All of the patterned paper from the table was put into the rack where it belongs. Scraps were put into a little tray on the desk. I found the rest of the fabric to make the curtain for the other side, but currently have no more double sided carpet tape so I can't put it up just yet. Right now I am just focusing on cleaning anyways - prettyness will come later!

Next to the cupboard lives my Making Memories carousel, which has had a makeover. I took out everything I don't need close at hand to make room for the essentials. Various glues, paintbrushes, tools, pens, and watercolor pencils hang out here. Before, everything was willy nilly inside of it and now it is easy to turn and grab what I need.

Whoa. Whoa. Yes, that is a clean worksurface. I have a desk again!

And finally, the shelves. Looking a bit more tidy but still have a ways to go. I need to find a better place for all of the wood pieces and I would like to get more of the pink photoboxes (they're IKEA) when I'm in Alberta.

Today is especially rainy here in PEI, we're catching the tail end of tropical storm Hannah. At least gray and yucky days usually make the best cleaning days! I hope to get a bit more done soon.

Chelsea, your studio is looking great. Don't you just *LOVE* the Making Memories carousel. I got mine about 3 months ago and I'm amazed at how much stuff it holds.
