Welcome to a new feature on our blog, where we take a sneaky peek around each other's crafting spaces, admiring the ingenuity required to fit all those supplies in, ooh-ing and aah-ing in envy at someone's marvelous space and taking off our hats to the creativity required to live and work in the same space.
What we want to show is how we REALLY work. No tidying up and straightening things. This is to be the real deal, and it's all the better for that.
Our very first beautiful volunteer to let us into her work space is Susan, of Susanwilliamsdesigns. Susan is a regular on our forum, and makes the most amazing jewellery from guitar picks - take a look at her shop HERE.
Lets start off with Susan's crafting table.
She uses a revolving storage frame for beads and other small items, which is a
fantastic idea, especially when you have a lot of small items. I can think of many other
artists in our team who could find this suggestion very useful, myself included.
This station is mainly used for shipping, so Susan has all her boxes and slips organised and ready to go. The printer is also located close by, so that she can grab her order sheets and despatch notes as she goes.
A general desk for administration and keeping a close eye on Etsy for all those orders!
And there we have it, a speedy tour around Susan's bright studio.
I'll be emailing people to ask them to participate in this feature every so often, but if you'd like to volunteer to have yours on the blog, please get in touch with me either on the comments below or via an Etsy convo.
