studio details: yesterday and today

I do love a tidy studio! | Emma Lamb

Yesterday I tidied my wee studio. I always let it get in such a mess as I am completely terrible at putting things away properly. Usually that results in organised chaos but if I don't keep an eye on things it turns into pure, unadulterated chaos and I can't find anything I'm looking for. The worst thing is when I lose my crochet hooks, sewing needles or embroidery scissors. I know they will be in one of the many boxes, baskets or tins that hold all my projects, but which one!?

Do not fret, I have found them all! My hooks are safely in a wee jar on my desk, all the pins are back in my fabby Japanese pincushion and I think the scissors are in the drawer. At least I hope so because if they're not I have no idea where they are and will have to go buy yet another pair! So today I am ready to make a wee bit more chaos... :)

Btw, today is the last chance for you to enter my wee giveaway. I'll be closing the comments first thing tomorrow morning and will be choosing the winners soon after.

Until then have a fabulous day,
Emma, x

  1. Oh my, your studio is delightful - what eye candy. I can't imagine it being a mess for one minute!

    Is Spanner allowed in? I'm afraid I've had to install a child's safety gate at my craft room doorway and Bertie, my shaggy chocolate cocker spaniel, lies pressed up against it looking like an advert for the RSPCA!

  4. Thank you my lovelies... order is prevailing at the moment, but i have a couple of big projects lined up so it certainly won't be long before chaos rules the roost once again... !

    Heather! You tell Bertie he can come live with me and Spanner in my wee studio... Him and my wee man can sleep under my desk togehter... :)
    Spanner is the most chilled out Cocker Spaniel I have ever known... he sleeps quietly under my desk all day every day and has done since the moment he arrived! He only wakes up to either go for a walk, a pee or when he's hungry... :)

  5. Oh so inspiring! I need to organize my space again. But it always ends up in chaos not too long after, I guess that's the cycle of creativity!

  8. What a gorgeous studio you have Emma! At least you have photos of it looking neat and tidy now. So hard for us creative types to keep that way, I know. x

  9. I love seeing other peoples' work rooms - if nothing else it inspires me to tidy mine! Yours is stunning - just like your crochet really then.

  12. I love your space! I didn't realize that you collect Kokeshi dolls as well... actually I think I have one that would be sister to the one third in from the left. She has a different kimono but the same exact details... lovely! I have a whole Pinterest board devoted to them. Thanks for sharing!

  17. Emma, you've got a lovely workspace, and I really like the light there. Why would I be so surprised to see such a bright place in Edinburgh?

    Like you, I do like to have a good idea about where to find my various artistic supplies and tools, and try to have some of them hidden/stored in plain sight. Others must be kept in various containers that I will always associate with those bits and pieces, like buttons, beads, old fabric remnants, knitting/crochet books, etc.

    Only very rarely do I get puzzled about the whereabouts of something ... and then I just can't rest until I do find the buried treasure without a map.

    Best wishes!

  18. Your studio does not seem "wee" at all to me ... mine is much smaller! I love the simplicity and the gentle colors. Thanks for letting me peek.
