I've Outgrown My Studio, So I'm Moving

But I'm not moving far! My studio is an upcycled shed which is now too small for all of my crafty obsessions and supplies. Things have been spilling over into our home's dining room and living room, so Mr. Catnip suggested (ever so thoughtfully) that it might be a good idea to swap out my studio and our "pantry" (read: old millend barn that houses the freezers and household/holiday storage) - that way I would have more room, and could keep all of my crafting messes projects out of the house. Much to his surprise, I agreed! The old barn had already received some interior work a few years back, so painting was first on the studio agenda.

Emptied out and ready to paint.

The floor and baseboards are next!

this looks like it's going to be a great studio! keep posting pictures as you make it homey.

I am thinking of moving my studio to another room in our house also. I too am spilling out into the dining room.

This would be my dream, to move into a larger place of my own also. I am all over our home and overflowing the garage.

Maybe I just have too much stuff?

Hi Kathy
Thought you had been away for so long, so I just wanted to stop bye and say hi. I hope everything is okay with you. Probably busy with your new studio...
