I’m Laurence (I am a female!) from Santa Monica and would love to enter the contest “My Workspace”. Thanks for the great inspiration on your website!
When my husband and I relocated to California, we agreed to share the spare bedroom and each have our separate working space! I spent quite a lot of time in my working space doing crafts like sewing, journal making and jewelry making. I have lots of small supplies and had to figure a way of storing everything but have them accessible easily.
This is the card that I have chosen: I try to keep my desk as tidy as possible so that I can use it for various activites. I have created a fabric padded mood board for keeping things to eye levels. It is great to use as a mood board as well.
My sewing notions are stored under my desk, in a translucent 6 drawers chest. I have revamped a plain Ikea shelves and placed it next to my desk for easier access. I use large storage boxes for my scrapbooking and other supplies. I use wooden magazine holders for my books.
To the left of the desk and the shelves, there is a mirrored sliding door wardrobe which I have converted into more storage space. I used the same Ikea shelves to store fabrics, sewing machine, jewelry and paper supplies.
On top of the shelves, I have placed a small wooden sewing cabinet for bobbins and ribbons. I find that storage boxes and containers work great for my space! I like to keep it clean and tidy. This is my space and I love it!
