My Attic Studio

When creating I like to work in my conservatory as the light is really good and I have a lovely view of my garden, which is great for inspiration. Unfortunately I don't have the space to display my work and that of my arty friends in the downstairs of my home so I have a lovely little attic space in the upstairs office (it's a kind of mezzanine floor level that looks over the upstairs office) and it is here that I can indulge my arty side.
I'm always reworking the layout on the desk area to accommodate new pieces of work or friends pieces I've acquired. I also have a growing pile of Stampington Publications, which I love; Somerset Studio, Where Women Create, Artful Blogging and Digital Studio, I'm always adding to this collection so I don't know what I'm going to do when the pile gets too big lol!. This space is also where I keep my "arty" book collection including books and magazines my work has been published in.
Of course since purchasing the gorgeous old typewriter I showed you in an earlier post, I had to re-jig the whole space to accommodate it and that took some doing, not to mention lots of dusting!!! But I finally found an area for it right next to my old vintage telephone.

The gold "ART" sign was a charity shop find and I am planning to cover it in vintage papers... another of the many jobs I keep meaning to get round to!

So I am satisfied now that my "Arty Attic" is re-jigged sufficiently till the next purchase... then I might need to move home :-) .... a girl should always have space for her creative side!
