Day One of Operation Clean Studio

So after the shock of my disasterous studio had worn off I tackled the task at hand by first rolling up my sleeves and hauling my bookcase into the closet. I wanted to be able to fully utilize the closet space while also freeing up some space in my work area. (It's always felt rather snug in there) I also took the wheels off of my drawer storage and was able to fit one of them underneath my work table so that I am
fully utilizing the entire space. Already I am happier with the feeling in my studio and am looking forward to cleaning out a lot of the junk to free up even more space.

Does anyone know of a place that might sell paper storage fairly inexpensively? I would like better storage for my watercolor paper but am finding it hard to locate paper storage for sheets that size that don't break the bank. Has anyone else organized their art studio or craft area? Any items that you just couldn't live without? Despite my apparent lack of organization, organizational supplies are
one of my all-time favorites.


  1. About the paper storage, my husband made a shelf that suspends from the basement ceiling. It's in the storage area, way in the back, and a pain to get to... but it keeps matte boards and paper flat! Hey, I had to change my blog address. I hope you'll still follow. It's

  2. My dad has a similar thing in his studio, but I'm not sure that I can do it in my studio space.(though it is a really good idea) Of course I'll still follow! Thanks for letting me know about the change. :)
