The last couple of weeks I’ve been working on getting all my studio stuff arranged. I don’t really have a studio right now but I have a studio wall. All my stuff is on these shelves against one wall in our dining room. It’s not my favorite set up but it works with what we have going on right now.
It got me thinking about all the studio set ups I’ve had over the last few years and how it doesn’t really matter. You can make good stuff in all kinds of places (and plenty of bad stuff there too.)
When I began my year of creative habits project in 2014 I had this little make-shift desk in a dormer window of our bedroom. I worked there sometimes but mostly I just stored my stuff there and then worked at the dining table or on the couch.
Then in 2015 we moved our living area to what was the dining area so that we could have a room for homeschooling and my studio.
In 2016 we moved to our current house and we weren’t homeschooling anymore so I had a room of my own. It was open to the rest of the main rooms in the house but that works really well for me.
This was my favorite set up. More photos of that studio are here.
In 2018 mostly because I love to rearrange, we switched my studio room and the living room. This photograph was taken for 417 magazine.
And now we’ve moved it into the dining room. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
We’ve been married 16 years and have moved 5 times. We’ve been in this house for 3 years and I’ve got the itch again so I suspect this set up only needs to last me awhile.
One thing I do like about this new set up is I’ve created two standing desk areas: one for digital work and one for analog.
Ok, I’m finally organized. Time to get to work. :)
