Hello, friends! Savannah O’Gwynn here today sharing my brand NEW studio! I?m so excited that everything is out of boxes from our move in July! I had planned on taking a month to get settled, but that didn?t happen due to painting, Hurricane Irma, and delays in the cabinets being installed. But let me tell you?it was WORTH THE WAIT!
I am very blessed to have a studio or room to craft in. My old studio was eclectic and full of color, shelves, containers, collections of dolls and cards from family and friends. You can find a video tour of that studio by clicking HERE. My new studio is a tad different. I went with a light nature blue instead of yellow paint. I have cabinets that close everything off from the public eye; this makes it easier to hide messes! LOL! My new studio is a bit bigger too.
What I?m most excited about are my cabinets. We purchased them from a company that removes old cabinets and installs new ones. We bought about 20 cabinets; it was the full set! The best part about them is that the bottom ones have pull-out drawers!
Inside my closet, I have three wire shelves where I store plastic tubs full of ribbons, eyelets, tape, twine, gems, brads, stickers, journaling cards and more.
Under the wire shelves, I have wooden cabinets and IKEA racks to hold 12 x 12-inch papers, stamps, dies and washi tape.
I have three desk areas in my new studio. The first one is where I will do all of my computer work. I have two upper cabinets that hold notebooks and random items that I really didn?t know where to put! The bottom left cabinet has four drawers with lots of notebooks, calendars, pens, tapes and paper. The bottom right cabinet has my printer and Silhouette Cameo.
My second desk area is on the other wall and this is where I will do my crafting and videos. I have four upper cabinets that hold various items, such as card envelopes, Whisker Graphics bitty bags (I?m obsessed with these), Imagine inks (another obsession of mine), extra cutting boards/trimmers and boxes or containers.
The bottom cabinets next to my desk area hold a pull-out trash can (so fun!) and extra Bible journaling supplies. In the drawers are my most used supplies like scissors, acrylic blocks, tapes, etc. The bottom right cabinet holds MORE inks and sprays, as well as paints.
The last desk area is for my sewing machines. I love to create little book covers, keychains, and blankets for babies. I have two sewing machines. One is for fabric and the little one is for sewing on cards. Note: Be sure to check out my post with tips and tricks for sewing on cards HERE.
Next to that desk is a large standing cabinet that holds all of my 6 x 6-inch paper pads and 8 x 11-inch cardstock sheets. I am obsessed with paper! I have organized them in IKEA bins with plastic dividers.
Finally, there is a rolling table in the center of my room for cutting fabric or for friends who want to stop by and craft with me. This table was used in my classroom. I taught my students how to sew and cross-stitch after school. It is cool because it has two sides that fold up or down to make the table larger or smaller. In this photo only one side is up.
I know I?ve shared a lot of photos today! Actually, I am not even done decorating my studio. I have two desks chairs arriving later today, I would like to install a shelf above my computer, and Trav is ordering under-cabinet lighting! It?s a work in progress.
I hope you have enjoyed the tour of my studio! I almost forgot?my studio has always been called SAVANNAHLAND. That?s because I live in my own little world. 🙂 That is where my blog name comes from. I get to share my little world with friends through the internet.
If you are ever in Florida, let me know! I?d love for you to visit and craft with me in my studio! There?s plenty of room.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed!
