In My Studio...

This morning I had a little tidy up, so before it gets trashed again I thought I'd record this moment for posterity!
Fancy a little tour?
My studio is teeny tiny, so it won't take long and I've put kettle on!
It's amazing how many nooks and crannies a lass can fit in one room!
My paints have to stay organised at all times though.
Otherwise, if I'm in the 'flow' and I can't grab the colour I want straight away I get really mardy!
The studio parrot, he only needs the occasional dust, very low maintenance!
Handy dolls' house scrips and scraps storage unit!
Oo I can hear the kettle whistling....custard cream or bourbon?

  10. What a lovely studio to work in, I love how you have a low maintenance parrot that only needs the occasional dust too haha :D The dolls house full of lots of bits and bobs is great too.

    Super lovely :)

  11. I'll have a bourbon, thank you, while I keep looking at all your intriguing paraphernalia! I wouldn't get any work done in there because I'd be playing with things and rearranging all the time. I love the troll dolls - sadly, I no longer have my purple-haired one called Lorelei, but I still have a troll cow named Larence (like Clarence without the C. I don't know where that name came from - I was only 11 at the time). Anyway, I can see where you get your inspiration - it's an inspiring studio!

  12. I always enjoy a nose around a maker's workspace and yours is no exception. It's a good mix of supplies and the bits and pieces you love to have around. I especially love your reuse of items such as the child's toy for your brushes and the doll's house for bits and pieces. Thanks for the tourπŸ’–
