I am finally down to one box left to unpack in my studio, but that will have to wait until after I finish things for a couple of deadlines coming up fast!
So this week, as I put things away, I kept asking myself, ‘How do I stash my stash’? This is something we all deal with and whenever you move or reorganize your space you have to figure out what works best for you.
I decided that a trip to Target and Lowe’s was in order and I purchased some shelf units and plastic storage drawers. I need functional storage for my closet, not worried about ‘pretty’ and I need to be able to expand it as my time and wallet allow.
I received my first boxes of products from Matisse and I’m thrilled to finally have a huge closet space to store this type of thing in. I will add more shelves as needed to accommodate product.
Drawers will hold stamp sheets all neat and tidy
and I love these over the door shoe organizers. I keep all of my flyers, postcards etc in them.
Mailing supplies all grouped together will be handy. I used to keep them in a different room at our old house so I’m glad that I will be able to have everything I need in one space.
My stash of cute workshop aprons hangs at one end of the long closet.
Believe it or not, but one of my first workspaces was in a closet about 1/2 the size of this. I was thrilled when I converted that closet into my own private workspace. Work with what you have, carve out your little niche and don’t let not having a ‘studio’ keep you from creating. You can create no matter what your space is, even if it’s a spot at the kitchen table. I can say this because I have done it.
See, my one last box left to unpack! I hope the missing drawer in my shelf unit is in there-lol!
I have my stuff stashed and still have room to grow vertically in this storage space. I picked shelf units that can be added onto as needed and that are inexpensive. For now I’m good. My things are unpacked and I can work in my studio. I will add to and adjust things as needed down the road, but for now I love having a space to work in again~
