Today I'm pleased to share to most lovely space of miss Valerie from Witty Workshop and Rose Flash jewelry. Valerie is a neighbor to the north, from Canada, with an inspiring work space that I hope you all will like! Let's take a look:
What do you create in this space?
I create my art, paintings, drawings and "mignonneries" for my Witty Workshop and my jewelry line named Rose Flash. I also do sewn projects and daydreaming :)
Can you describe what we see in the pics a bit?
My studio is a small room in my apartment, painted in blue. On one wall I have my working table with a large cutting mat, tons of jars wich contains my gazillion beads. My chéri (aka husband) made me some amazing shelves and organizations unit so I can have my colorful jars and things displayed (he also made me a giant magnetic calendar.) Above my worktable I have a quote from my all time favorite book, Le Petit Prince, which is literally translated as: "If someone loves a flower which is one of a kind in the thousands and thousands of stars, then it's enough to make him happy when looking at them."
Behind me, I have my sewing table and a peg-board wall, which is so practical to store my jewelry and other tools (I have to see my goodies and tools, or else I forget I have them :). Beside the sewing-table, I have my Easel (found at a flea market) and a chalkboard painted wall for me to write thoughts, world domination plans and doodles.
How do you feel in your "handmade space?"
I feel like myself. It's an extension of my art. A place where you can find such things as a broken clock on the wall, a Spider-plant (I am arachnophobic), a white plastic dummie with no head (it freaks both Chéri and my cat Tokyo), a fur hat made by my grand-mother and two Lomograph cameras. I love my studio, it makes me feel more creative and overall happy!
Thank you for sharing your wonderful space, Valerie! I'm loving the chalkboard wall and the cool blue color against the light that comes in...so so pretty.
