Some Studio Pics!

Hello dear friends,
Yesterday morning at 7am(!) I took my camera along to the studio, 
hence why the street is deserted!  My studio is in this lovely line of shops and offices.
 A couple of doors along is this gorgeous wedding/celebration cake shop.
Here is the entrance - Longferry House - has quite a nice ring to it I think!
And here are a few sneak peeks of what's going on.
I've been purchasing quite a few of these units...

A place to display the cards and tags that my lovely follower friends send to me. 
I purchased this little shelf for £2 in a charity shop, perfect for housing all the little misting bottles etc.
Beginning to fill up the paper trays...
A view of my workdesk.. apologies terrible lighting in my photo, the sunlight is lovely but blinds are 
due to be fitted very soon!
It's still a work in progress - various wall decals are going up, the bunting and butterflies of course.
Lots more crafty items still need to be transferred from home, but I really want to share with you 
how things are going so far.  Also my lovely Mum and Dad are driving all the way to Reading 
on Friday (while I'm in work) to collect a table for me.
I wanted two big pine tables together to create a big square workplace for my classes.  
I already had one but found its matching partner on eBay!   
It's only a 170 mile round trip but so worth it!!
Thanks for stopping by and big thanks to those that email and keep in touch too.
Take care.

Hi Christine - I love how your studio is taking shape. You must be working so hard to get it just right. The location is just perfect - a cake shop and a great pub nearby - what more could you ask.

Looking forward to more pics.

Hi Christine, thanks for keeping us up- to-date with the progress on your studio, it is really taking shape now. Wish I was closer to visit and take part in a workshop but unfortunately many miles separate us. One day maybe.


Sue B said...

Hi Christine, It's all beginning to look rather like a studio to me,how wondeful, it will be fabulous to have such a lovely working space so light & airy. How good are your mum & dad but bet they are really pleased to be helping you with your new venture.
That was a good bit of planning I reckon so near to a wedding cake shop, I see wedding stationery & wedding cards looming on the horizon. Good luck with it all wish it was mine !!!

Gloria Stengel said...

Oh my darling, Christine! I am beyond happy for you! I cannot wait to see it all finished! Are you going to work in the studio full time? Now that you are an international TV star?! {wink} I am giddy with happiness for you!!!!!

Clai01 said...

Thanks for showing us the progress of your studio, it looks fantastic so far!

Craftychris said...

Its looking wonderful so far! The street is so quaint and gorgeous! xx

Sarah said...

Looking good...hope the cake shop doesn't prove too tempting!!

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Hello dear lady,
What a busy family you've been. Like Gloria, I am feeling the happiness too as you have kindly taken us along on your exciting venture. It's been a big step with lots of work but I think now, as each piece is put into place, you must feel pure delight. That is probably why your parents want to help, just for the pleasure of seeing their daughter filled with enthusiasm and happiness. I wish you every success; enjoy every single minute.
Best wishes Linda x

Hi Christine,
What a splendid job you are making of the studio. Seeing pics of the progress your making is as exciting as looking on the blog each day to see your projects. Are you able to tell me where I can get some of the paper wracks/trays like yours from? Would love some for my 12 x 12's. B.W. Carolyn x

Hi Christine, your studio looks amazing:)
Best wishes,

Ali W said...

What a beautiful part of the world you live in, it looks so lovely. Don't know how I missed seeing these wonderful photos yesterday, my iPad is slow and doesn't always display photos quickly! I think I need to update the software on it, oh well another techi job for my son when he gets round to it (you wouldn't think he's in IT!) I must say, your crafty place is really taking shape, how exciting for you and your family. I wish you good luck in your new venture. Take care Alison :)

Lucy said...

The new place looks so inviting! Too bad I live in the USA's Pacific NW (that's up above California) or I'd be at the door when you opened up. The light is so nice inside. What a perfect place to browse or sit and create. I'm envious of those who live close enough to drop in.

nmty said...

Hi Christine

the studio looks lovely, really bright and airy. I bet you will have a great time working in there. can't wait to see the photos when it is finished.

Parents can be a great help can't they?

Lisa said...

Congrats on the new studio Christine! I've been a bit quiet due to the ME but also trying to craft as I was a very lucky lady and won a draw that Sue Wilson does everytime she reaches another 100 followers on her blog!!! I was dumbstruck and now I find you are having a studio... I'll have to ask Mr Wonderful if I can come for a class or two;)
lots of love
Lisa xx
