taken piece by piece it is a beautiful space, full of inspiration.
As a whole.......well.......... it does lack that certain Home Beautiful quality doesn't it?
(With thanks to Michelle for this weeks theme and the hostess with the mostess Three Buttons.)
Sometimes I think the mess is what makes us inspired to create. I love your room! I've been thinking of painting my sewing room green, but now I think duck egg blue might be the go!
Looks like a hive of activity! Love how you stored your ribbon on paper towel holders. You are lucky to have a space to call your own - my room doubles as a guest room and I have had to pack up and move my stuff out this week :( which is getting harder each time as I accumulate more stuff!
Thank you. I feel so much better now!!!
Very Clever. Cracking me up. Maybe I should try that - and then just look at the pretty pictures. It's sort of like internet chatrooms huh? You can be anyone you want to be - HA! And Lina is right - I feel better too - comforted somehow.
Your space definitely works because look what creations come out of it! The green walls look lovely.
When i saw your first photo my heart sank, and I seriously considered taking the photo of my space off my own post. Then I scrolled down to your second photo and I bounced on my seat clapping my hands. I'm starting to think that home-beautiful photos of work spaces are as damaging to a girl's psyche as photoshopped images of models in Marie Clare magazines!!! Thanks so much for the reality shot. I feel ok about my messy creative space now :)
Thank you for posting this!!! I'm actually doing a bit of quick blog reading while hiding out from my own studio. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed by the second snapshot that I forget about all the inspiring little tiny spaces within the larger studio.
Ahaha!! I just posted a pic of my room CLEANED, which doesn't look too far off your MESSY pic!! :p
LOL! For visual magpies, that looks perfect . . . I don't know about you, but I'm always scanning, looking for items, and rarely look at the room as a whole. My studio, in fact, is rather utilitarian, not even as colorful as yours . . .
Ha! It's all about perspective, isn't it? :)
Lovely! I loved the mini pics, and even more the whole view, because that's what I have too :)
Hi Jodie great to see a 'real creative space'Alison
This is great. Love the green walls and the crochet coat hangers!
I'm so pleased to see that someone else has a studio just as messy as mine! And I love that I can spy a wee Nong over there in the corner - woot! Leah xxx
But see...if everything is neat and tidy, that would mean we spent all our time cleaning, and not sewing! The only time my sewing-space is cleaned up, is when I'm not using it...Thanks for sharing, I love the green on your walls :-)
Looks perfectly tidy to me! Spending 10 minutes hunting for the lost scissors is just extra creative thinking time in my book :)xxxx
The green walls look very calming and would make me feel like I am outside even on a rainy daySharon

LOVE your studio, and love the fact that you can show how it's all about the good bits!!
when I was looking at the first pics I thought wow look at her sewing spot it was so pretty and organised and nothing like mine...........yep well that was until I saw the bottom one and yep your area is just like mine...........lol.........
It looks lovely - and so very YOU! I was telling a non-blogging friend about your Stitching Queen post and how funny you are (and yes, she is one of those people that I have dragged to the computer to meet your little dolls and generally admire you!) and I came to the conclusion as I was talking to her that bottled Essence of Jodie would be a far better tonic than any anti-depressant in the world! So please see if you can arrange it! Lucy xxx
I love the eye chart on the wall....it's fabulous!
I love how we're all tarred with the same brush!
Very clever Jodie!
I was just going to say glad to see we are all tarred with the same brush but Annie has beaten me LOL
oooooohhhhh!! I love the green walls. And your space just shows that there's actual activity taking place, that's all.
p.s. I really like the mosaic, as a close friend tells me whenever he's over, you have such interesting things to look at, I could spend all day in here.
What a funny post Jodie. I love it. Sanity and insanity together! Sounds like me.
The green walls are inspiring, and each of us as a unic way to keep organized. It works to you and we can see it in everything you do! :)
lime green paint covers a multitude of sins, I think. :)
Love your mosaic - and the green on the walls! Definitely lots of activity in your creative space.
Love the mosaic compilation, snippets of craftyness. Your work room looks very well used as it should. How I wish I had one, my armchair aka workstation/office just isn't big enough anymore.
Love it! Oh for any space to call my own! I recently moved to sunny Ballarat and was dead set ashamed and more than a little embarrassed to see the size of my fabric stash and unfinished projects! Had to pack under the cloak of darkness to hide from the man!! ( would he understand the need for such a stash - I don't think so ):)
I like this sort of chaos! It is so inspiring!
So much good stuff stashed away there! very envious.,..
looks great - vibrant and inspiring...which is obviously is considering the goodies that emerge from there!
Hi Jodie! You know you make me laugh each and everytime I read your comments and blog! Thanks!! :)
Your craft room looks eerily similar to mine. A mess is the mark of creative genius...I say! Happy crafting!
That mosaic is fantastic! I wonder if I could manage some shots like that of my space ... I always seem to have 100 pieces of fabric on my cutting table and 10,000 threads on the floor! Oh an a blind that is stuck halfway down :(
can I come and hang out in your 'studio'? It looks like the kind of place I could curl up in the corner with a cup of tea and not be worried about putting my cup down. Some people have far too tidy work spaces, I think - it's not natural!!!I am singing the stitching queen, it's genius.oh, hang on...I just spotted pirate bunny hanging out with Monda's monster. That's brilliant, I'm glad he has a fellow Brit to chat to :)
Looks perfectly tidy to me ;)I love the colour on your walls.
Love the mosaic and love your workspace!!!!!!!!!the green on the walls is yummieeeee!
The floor in your studio is just like mine - Hooray! Creative people have crunchy carpet.Janelle ;-)
Hey Little Women - do you have a blog?? We are trying to connect to you but no success. Jodie . . . your room is Ars om. I love it.
Hi I just came from Tines blog, your creating space is just perfect. I
I love your mosaic and photos...I love messy-work!Saludos desde Barcelona
Hi Jodie,Love the difference in your pictures. I just remember the first time I saw your sewing room and I loved it in all it's glory!! The more mess the better I say!!Kathryn.
Hi, I just popped over from the Meet me at Mikes blog. Your work is lovely. Great blog!Paisley xoxo
What a fantastic space - hurting my eyes to peer at all the magic on those shelves. Not surprised you create so much in there - magic.Emmax
I'm not sure why it makes us all feel better to know that your mess is a lot like our mess - but it does! I am tempted to post a picture of my sewing corner now that I know yours isn't perfect, either. I think I was a bit intimidated after seeing Lisa Boyer's dream studio come true. I tried to enlarge your picture so I could see just fabric goodies you have on your shelves, but it wouldn't enlarge. Thanks for making so many of us feel better about our "studios"!
First up,let me say, I think your studio looks fabulous as it is...but isn't amazing how it looks as a collage of detail? Like a magazine layout.
