Celebrating the raw, uncensored Studio Table!

    Today Seth Apter is hosting a
 Show Us Your Studio Table over on his blog!

Seth has kindly offered to link-up everyone's blogs to show a little of the inner messes of the working artist!! 
Stop on over to Seth's and check out all the other links of unkempt, un-organized and just down-right trashed with supplies studios!  Really...who has time to straighten and clean when there is sooo much Art to be made!!
Disclaimer:
      Please be aware...there are some people who like to work in a totally neat and organized area...do not be afraid --
         I don't think it's contagious!!   teeheehee


 Gosh- I never realized how much color I surround myself with!! No wonder I have a hard time working in just Black & White!!                     Yummy color!
yes, this is truly how my studio looks at this moment!
except for now there are actually Pumpkin muffin pieces on the floor also-Chum hasn't cleaned them up yet! ")


 Of course the mess doesn't stay right on the table... what would I do if I didn't have piles on the floor to cuss at because I have tripped over them- again! 
And I couldn't imagine a week without bruises on my hip or knees from open drawers!!



Thanks for stopping in and having a look- please make sure to visit some of the other links....

You make me feel so much better! My studio looks about like yours, I was too embarrassed to show it. Good for you for being so courageous.

oh, i feel at home there... i always wonder how this mess comes to be in NO time... and then i end up with only few Inch-squares of Workspace;)

Haha, This is the main thing my husband won't allow me to take over a room. I have to keep my stuff in few containers and work with that. I have one plastic cart, just like yours. It is full of stuff and its top is overflowing with my brushes and pencils. Whenever i need to work, i place a foam board on kitchen table and work. Clean everything up before 4.30 for sure.
You are very courageous to show it off publicly.

Oh Jackie! What a beautiful, wonderful "mess" you have! I'd love to come play ;) Yes, surrounding yourself with color will keep you happy! Thanks for sharing your space!

This is cool and looks like a real craft space. My actual craft - storage room looks exactly like this. I'm mostly working with my paints in the kitchen, near the sink...but when it comes to paperwork i have to clean up the mess in my storage room..to find the craft place (:o)

looks like a normal studio space to me!

Can I come over and play? My "studio" is the living room table these days!

A lot off stuff more to have fun with.

Yeey Jackie, I thought I am the only drawer freak, good to know that not; by the way my knees are also blue all the time from the open ones, and you know what I realized I need to pull them all out to decide which is the right thing for me at that certain moment!

Carmen Whitehead said...

What a beautiful mess! No wonder you create such wonderful pieces!

Astrid Maclean said...

Yep, this all looks kind of very familiar! Not messy, - nah, just creative!!

Julie Ann Lee said...

This, Jackie, is, I think, what is called 'creative chaos'!I love your colourful, crazy studio - muffin crumbs and all! I would so love a room like this. I have a little cupboard in our living-room which is now BURSTING at the seams. My dream is to have a room where I can just leave things to dry and work in progress. I would love not to have to clear away at the end of every craft session. However, I'm just so happy I've discovered crafting and creating and all you lovely crafters to share with! xxxx

Most yummy chaos! I can't wait to get mine back. xox

Darlene Campbell said...

Jackie, This looks like a store. I want, I want that turquoise drawer unit. AWESOME! I am looking very close at all the supplies you have. You have me beat and now I don't know what to get you for Christmas. ha ha Can't wait to be able to create in that studio with you one day.

I really love to see people’s work spaces and art supplies! My work space looks like yours:)
Thanks for the sneak peak.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Just looking at your photos shows how color driven you are. Although I'm one of the odd neat freaks, your studio and the plethora of tools and supplies you own made my heart beat just a bit faster. Thanks for sharing.

Gallery Juana said...

I love that brilliant blue, mulit-drawer set! And all the supply goodies (in view and hidden) that surround your work space would keep me inspired non-stop too. Thanks for the tour.
