Today I decided to give you all a little peak into my studio space. About four years ago we were near completion on our basement finsh project. We consulted with California Closets on a design for our office space. At the time, I was working as an office designer for a national furniture group, so I was allowed to work from home quite a bit. My husband is a computer guru- so we needed ample space for his computer montiors, and various "things" as i call them, and I needed to be able to spread out plans, set up tables for big projects etc. I had also asked for a design for a craft space- it proposal was beautiful....BUT a little pricey...we decided the craft portion woul dbe phase two.... Well I am pretty sure it was exactly one week after we signed the contract for the furniture that I found out we had a little one on the way....and a two weeks after that my team was eliminated. So, that changed the use of my space a bit.
I did set up a small sewing area, and it was perfect for my little nesting projects, and later for small projects I picked up off of blogs. Then By Cee Cee was formed and I started to quickly outgrow my small corner...it became a corner and a small part of the wall....then we moved the desk top out...then I picked up a book case...and I would like to cut/press/set up and be able to have noise/tv in the backround....and here we are....I have taken over a space about the length of our house and 10' deep.
I am a lucky gal to have such a sweet husband....he had really hoped the basement would be more "man cave" and what he ended up with a little girls dress up heaven! and he doesn't seem to mind most days- he even builds my craft show display racks :) Speaking of.....those aren't even in this picture with all my stock- I have all of that set up in our dining room.....
I love storage ideas! send me pins of ideas you come across that are great- I know I am out growing my current items and will really have to work on some new organization after the holidays!
I know- it is only August 30th- but it is almost Labor Day weekend, and after the unofficial end to summer, I am ready for a new season! The designer and artist in me loves the saturation of color this season brings. Here are a few things coming to the shop this fall....and more on the way!
I have a pattern I am currently testing for Peek-A-Boo Pattern Shop....I just need the perfect fabric :)
Off to Joann's then a tea-party with my girl and her BFF :)
Welcome to By Cee Cee! Our site is live, we have a giveaway scheduled to start tomorrow with Nap Time Crafters and I am actually doing a bolg post! Wohoo!
I have been so nervous all week about getting everything "done." Then it hit me today that there is no "done!" As long as we are working and taking orders we will be creating new outfits, listing more products and planning trunk shows! Phew was that a relief- I didn't have to finish anything, just be prepped :D
So here it is- Our prepped site and shop. Continue to check back as we will be adding fall and holiday items in the upcoming weeks. Also, once I figure out how to get the links listed, I will be adding info to our links page~ bear with me~ I am still a pen and paper girl at heart.
Have a whimsical day!
