Studio Tour: My Work Space Makeover

It’s been over 2 years since I shared my creative space with you and things have changed a bit in that time, so I decided it was about time for another studio tour.

I was getting a bit bored with my work space, so decided to spruce things up a bit with a mini make-over. This time round I found myself wanting to move away from the dark browns and blacks that had dominated my space since I set it up, and move more toward light and white. (And yes, that is my washing hanging in the background – my work space doubles as the place where I dry my washing in winter!)

My Work Space

my work bench

my editorial calendar helps to keep me sane

handmade jewellery waiting to be worn

the sketch book where I sketch out jewellery design ideas

the gifts from my family that I treasure

I am a Whovian through and through

It was easy enough to rub back my boring brown trestle table and give it a coat of gloss white paint – to match the gorgeous gloss white storage boxes that were my inspiration.

And while my table isn’t always this neat, the Hubs affectionately tells me I’m anal-retentive-obsessive-compulsive, which means that my work bench is usually pretty free of clutter – although there are times when it becomes a dumping ground for all things Tasha.

My creative hub – the space where my creative inspirations and aspirations come to fruition (or not!)

This is my Work Space
On Friday I’ll show you the other side of my work space – the area where I store all of my jewellery tools and photography paraphenalia.  And where I get to show the world what a label-queen I am 🙂

    oh I like looking at other peoples spaces. You are a tidy kiwi (kiwi slang) lol. As for the washing to me you are keeping it real. And now I know you are a whovian. You mean I have competition for the title of label queen. BTW I did try to leave a few comments the other day but I seemed to have a problem my end when it came to publishing them.

      LOL – I have a fellow-label-queen!!
      I’ve not ever heard kiwi used by a Kiwi as slang before, Janine… meaning?
      And if you have any more troubles with comments let me know and I’ll look in to it!

    Hi Tash,

    Quite a few years ago in NZ, we had an advertising campaign that encouraged New Zealanders to “be a tidy kiwi” and pick up their rubbish. So in NZ we sometimes say when people clean up they are being a tidy kiwi. I hope that makes sense? lol
