A new art space....and one very tired bunny!!

Last night I was sooooooooooo tired I could hardly keep my eyes open past dinner. I had been assembling new shelfing and re-arranging every SINGLE thing in my art room, it was IN-tense.
This picture was taken at the 'nearly-over-worst!' stage, I wish I'd have thought to take one at the worst, as a monument to my achievement lol. It's the multicoloured (really useful storage co) shelves which are the culprit, but small spaces need crafty solutions. But here's how it looks this morning, *awwwww* and *sigh* with relief!
There's still some organisation to do with these drawers below, as there seems to be so many important things without a home and so many drawers with 'just stuff', and it's really difficult to figure out which is which, ya'know?
One things for certain, with such small square-footage of space bare surfaces are highly desired in my room, but I still made sure there was one for my current journals - to hell with practicality, I want to see them babies!!!
As it's Friday I'm going to be linking with two of my fav fab art sites, Paint Party Friday & Studio Sneak Peek & share with you two quick videos I've created this week. First is a quick 1 minute art journal page process & second is a 2 minute art journal flip :)
Oops an edit here as I forgot to mention it's last few days of my giveaway for this recycled journal below and a couple of other journal kits, click here to enter.
Much love & arty blessings, Jennibellie xxx

  2. Thought I had a lot of stuff but I give in and you win. Goodness knows how you ever find anything - but I bet the 'looking for' is fun.
    Will come back to catch up on the videos - thanks.

  12. I love getting to see other people's work spaces, and yours looks fantastic -- so colorful and cozy!

    I'm doing some sorting and organizing for my half of the studio. Is it weird that I enjoy that sort of thing? I have such a long way to go, but labeling my re-purposed food containers to put supplies in has been fun. :)

  20. Your space looks amazing! I know it must be a bit tricky to work in an area so small but I guess that forces you to be more organised. I must take a leaf out of your book and blitz my spare room!

  37. I loved your video series on making a recycled journal out of greeting cards! Thank you so much for sharing your talents! I made one, using your tutorials and I posted on my blog, It is not filled, and I do need to embellish the pages, but the "bones" of it are done, please stop by if you would like and have a look! Again, thank you for the inspiration. I am very very very new to art journaling, and I appreciate all of your tutorials. http://creativeoperation.blogspot.com/2012/02/recycled-greeting-card-journal.html
    Thanks again,
    Michelle
