As it turns out, I JUST went through my three stacks earlier this week as I was organizing my new office/studio space in my home. So I can't show you my messy piles (but I assure you, I do have them) but I can show you a stack of books in my new space, and show you how a New York City dweller -- who runs a business from home and has a passion for art -- keeps it all organized. First the stack, then the studio.
The work desk and art "studio"
I keep my files for work and the art supplies I don't use every day in a closet in my bedroom. Out here are only the things I use a lot.
Same thing with books -- in this work area are the books I refer to often, for art and sewing reference.
pens, markers, brushes, pan pastels, pen and ink
That red candy container, bottom left, is full of portfolio oil pastels. Watercolors, aquarelles, and a vintage file card box for notes.
plastic drawers for small things like small tools, adhesives and paper tapes,
And things like gel medium, gesso, texture paste, crackle paste, and so much more have a new home here.
My sunny little corner of the living room. (As you can see, I'm not disturbing the cat at all.)
Whatever you do for work or fun, how do you keep your workspace organized?
And tell me, are you a stacker???
