Goodmorning sweeties… did you melt last week? I’m glad temperatures dropped a little here in the Netherlands, I am not build for tropical temperatures. Now that we are back to normal (sort of… 25 Celcius is still warm) I can finally get things done.
A few weeks ago I promised you a ‘grande tour’ through my modest craftroom that I call ‘atelier’ and today is the day… besides ‘What’s on your WorkDESK” you will see what’s on my shelves and in the big closet… and as every Wednesday, I put a link over at Julia’s blog to join WOYWW
I drew a simple little sketch for you so you have an idea of what you are about to see on the photos
First you see the closet that finally got clung to the wall so I could load it up with ‘stuff’. The shelves hold extra ‘things’ that I don’t use much but that need to be in the atelier, like boxes filled with (old) photos and postcards. The closet works as a room divider too… the space behind the closet got transformed into a tiny little ‘guest room’ and I must say it’s quite a cute little ‘bunk’ to sleep in.
Here’s my desk in all its glory… I live in a corner-apartement and the ‘just around the corner’ neighbours have their balcony on this side of the building… that means they sit at an angle and only 3 meters distance: they can look right into my room. We all want our privacy so I put plastic against the window so I don’t have to look at them all day and they can feel more ‘free’ when they sit on their balcony. It works perfect for all of us.
Against the long wall I put up our former book case… the living room is too small to have it there so I turned it into an atelier-case. (b.t.w. I get confused about the English words for this piece of furniture… when do you say ‘case’ and when do you use ‘closet’?)
Right next to the door there was some room left to put this basket with paper rolls…
I’m happy to be able to call this room ‘my atelier’… it’s my little paradise and safe haven
and yes, I create in there.
Mostly art journal pages.
Here’s a spread from my ‘miscellaneous’ journal
Think Your Day was Tough?
Have a great week y’all:
stay in the shade,
drink some ice tea,
keep on rockin’ in the free world!
