thursday : my creative space

I love peeking at other people's studios and workspaces, so as you can imagine, I was over the moon when I discovered My Creative Space at kootoyoo.

This is the first Thursday that I'm playing along.  I've missed the deadline the last few weeks, so I'm super-excited!

Here's my work table this week.


This is a small part of my table, but it's a pretty representative shot. I try to make sure I clean up at the end of the day so that I can walk into a nice clean inviting table in the morning, but within 15 minutes of my arrival, it's usually covered with all kinds of fabric and other 5occ stuff.

I've been working on taking pictures of all of my fabrics so that I can get my shop up to date, as well as my comprehensive color and pattern catalog. When I took this shot, I'd sorted a selection of fat quarters and then unwrapped a few of them so I could press out the package fold lines for the top-down pattern shots.

What is your creative space like? Do you like it messy, are you super-organized, or somewhere in between?

Don't forget to peek in on some of the other artists who are playing along this week!

My creative space is sometimes messy, sometimes clean. I'm not a "clean as you go" type of girl so I clean in one big swoop when I start to feel cluttered. Thanks for posting about the My Creative Space thing.

Thanks, Jana! It is vellum. I like the way it makes my name stand out on my packaging, but it doesn't detract from the fabric. I hope you liked my shop! I'd love to know what you think.

Love these. The red sounds nice but I would like to see a yellow one. Are these batiked?

Thanks, Trina! The tea towels are batik. I do have a really pretty yellow and white colorway called honey which I especially love in Trellis. If you'd like a look, you can see it here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/49698833/batik-tea-towel-honey-trellis
