BEHIND THE SCENES PART II - A Glimpse into the workspaces of artists and crafters!


WELCOME, to BEHIND THE SCENES Part II - where you will get a further glimpse into the workspaces of more Etsy artists and crafters.  If you missed seeing the first segement of "Behind the Scenes", click on the link below.



Below you will see the remaining shops that I didn't have time to add into the first segment, which took me many hours to get set up and finished.  Thanks for your patience. 



ALYSSA KAY COLLECTIONS
by Trish

Trish says, "I am almost ashamed of sending you this picture, I am not terribly organized. But of course I sometimes work right at my kitchen table too, right out of a fishing tackle box that transports all my supplies."




A lot of the artists felt the same way as Trish, but when you see all the beautiful creations that come from these workspaces...it sure doesn't matter how messy we artists can get in our spaces. It is what comes OUT of them that counts!




KITSCH CAFE
What a fantastic, organized space this is!



SHE'S BATTY DESIGNS

Here we can see several photos of what this artist's workspace looks like at different times.


Very Neat!


Ah, now that looks more like it!


Now we know she's been working really hard here!





THE NAKED FROG
Teenage daughter's shop






ATELIER EXPO ARTE



"Just some pictures to show you where and how Atelier Expo Arte makes his handmade pieces.

This takes place in a small town in Portugal, called Vila Nva de Gaia."






ALEXANDER'S DESIGNS

Husband and wife team.


His workspace!


Her workspace!



LIZARD'S JEWELRY

This area is in our living room, which is now been taken over by me as a studio. This area is where I do most of my metal clay work. I do my fabricating work in a space up-stairs in our bank barn. My husband's studio is up there (he's a sculptor...) JEFF HALL'S ART 

I have a space where I do soldering and the heavy equipment is there, i.e; drill press, lathe, sanders, etc. Now that I have also started incorporating polymer clay in my work I've had to start another space dedicated to that. So I basically work all over the place, but this area featured is where I do most of it.






RAINS SEWS


I don't know how people stay so organized! Wonder what the secret is!

MAD ART JEWELRY

Here we get to see some of the steps taken to create MAD ART JEWELRY'S workspace.



TWO RIVERS SOAP














THANKS AGAIN to all the Etsy shops who participated in this "work spaces" feature.  It was fun seeing how everyone works....I guess some of us are very neat and organized and some have "organized clutter".  I definitely fall into the last category.

Thanks for including my workspace :) It's scary how messy I've let my space become but like you said, I've really been working in there! LOL.
