Remodeling My Craftroom Studio
Good day Crafties!
I've been hard at work on a number of things during my summer hiatus from YouTube. As you all may know by now, I get antsy for growth ever so often. Over the last four years, I've gone from recording in a dim bedroom corner to setting up a larger craft space in my basement... or as you know it, my Subterranean Wonderland.
I inherited my current recording space on February 7th, 2020, while out of town. When I got back, I went all in on clearing out the space and I'd decided to pace the move slowly, planning to work on it over my spring break and then over my summer hiatus.
Well... we all know that 2020 was not the year of perfect plans. Due to the pandemic, I found myself taking my art courses in a distance learning situation where I only had to check in once a month. Needless to say, that was right up my alley because I started spending more time in the studio, and moving all things craft related from my bedroom.
The act of organizing brings me great joy so, naturally, that moment had me giddy. I started recording over there right away, immediately loving the new setup and better lighting/seating situation. Over time, I began
to expand. I've written a few blogs about upgrading the techy stuff over there and how I've expanded the yarn stash (haven't done this in a while lol) and it's really great to look back on now. If nothing else, it offers some considerable inspiration when I'm feeling low about my progress with the biz.
Fast forward to the present day, two years later. I'm just brimming with the need to change my setup, something I've been teasing for a while now. After this past February, I decided that I needed some change. I started by visualizing... I know that sounds really obvious but, I had to envision what I wanted to go wear considering that I had a nice amount of additional space coming my way.
For those of you who follow me on Pinterest, you may have noticed the addition of a new section on my page. I started daydreaming about how I wanted to display my monstrous stash and store all my tools. This vision is ever-changing at this point.
What I'm most excited about right now is the actual hauling of the old furniture that's been down here. I've effectively hidden it from sight during the last 2 years but, its something that's been bugging me because I know it's there.
I'm also happy because I don't have to wait the initial estimated 5 weeks to get this done. Things are feeling pretty good around the studio right now. Over the duration of this little remodeling journey, I'll be posting little blogs about the changes and how I'm setting things up!
You might get some clues if you follow me on Pinterest, otherwise, I hope you enjoy the ride with me!
Until next time,
