Dear Friends,I have just been blogging about workspaces on my Etsy Team Cymru blogspot about. I am in the process of trying to improve mine.It is a corner of the garage and is not as aesthetically pleasing to my eye or heart as I would like.I am working on improving storage and layout.I am rather messy when working and my desk often looks like it has been ransacked and I need to address my untidyness.I have bought some small plastic drawers sets and have at least began to organise my materials by,wire,beads,ceramic,etc.The walls are grey breezeblock and the lighting could do with improvement.If I add some colour and some new lighting I think I can improve things so as to enhance my enjoyment of the time spent there and therefore be more creative as a result.I know a lot of artists who work from home have very limited options about how and where they work.If  you are interested in contributing your views on this add your comments,Love to all my creative buddies,Anne

  1. Our work aread is chaos, but I (Moags) will soon be doing the same thing as we recently bought a new house and I will (hooray!) have a "real" bead room. Light and some art or a window always help me to better enjoy a work area. Good luck, post pics of your workspace, and we look forward to the end result! :)
