Peeking into Other People's Studios

I spent the weekend very happily trying to clean up the unbelievable disaster pit that is my studio space.  To be fair, my entire apartment is kind of a tornado-meets-laundry-meets-half-packed-suitcases kind of pit.  But after a crazy six weeks of traveling and making stuff at a more-insane-than-usual pace, it was time to dig out.  I'm mostly through the major heavy lifting at this point and trying to think through some storage choices.  After a year-and-a-half in this space, my workflow is not exactly how I originally planned it and so I might make some changes in how things are arranged.  Maybe.  Sort of like the "measure twice and cut once" rule, I have found that actually thinking through studio arrangement/storage before moving anything is a good idea.  While I mull things over (and yes, I will finally share a big photo tour of the studio space once things are settled), I thought I'd share some studio tours that piqued my interest.  I hope you'll enjoy a voyeuristic peek into these spaces too!

Roxanne Coble (aka by bun) put together the cutest video about her studio.  If you're a fan of Wes Anderson, I think you'll really dig the video:

If you've got a small space, I like this video that share how to turn a closet into fabulous crafty storage:

I thought that this next video had a lot of great content about thinking about how to organize your stuff and creating some inexpensive DIY storage:

If you want more studio peeking, there's a fun book called "Studio: Creative Spaces for Creative People" that you might enjoy!

Do you have a great art supply organizing tip you'd like to share?!  I'd love to know what it is!

Thanks for stopping by!
