Daydreaming of Studios

Since the pandemic started, and we all started working from home, I've been feeling rather anxious to have a studio outside of the house. I have a quite large living room and my current "quasi studio" is actually positioned at the far end of it - a work table with the basic necessities, my drawing journals, a basket with yarn, my photo- equipment. All the other stuff is in a shelved storage room. 

We recently bought a shop for my hubs business and buying/ renting  a space that will serve me as a studio is out of the question for the time being, so I am left with hopes for some better times. But my spirits never flail and fall. Hubs jokes about it saying: "Why do you need a separate studio, when you have the whole house for that?" 

Stampington publishes a magazine called In Her Studio dedicated to inspiring creatives. Amongst its pages, artists give tours of where they create and tell the stories behind developing their spaces, from the traditional to the unusual, the intimate to the extraordinary. For me, it is a genuine encouragement to never stop dreaming about mine.

By subscribing to In Her Studio, you will get 10% off, plus a free best of organization e-book. Take a peek inside - you won't be disappointed. 

 I'd love to hear stories of your studios. Do you have one? Where do you create?

Would you believe I have two rooms wholly for my creative pursuits. I know....I am very lucky. I love In Her Studio magazine. I get it every three months and love to drool over every single page. From cover to cover there is so much inspiration to see, and fabulous stories and insights of each 'artist'. I would say it is my favourite magazine.

I believe Kim. And I also believe it's true for anybody tackling creative work. I am biased when it comes to Stampingtin magazines, love them all, but my personal favourite is Artful Blogging.
