"Studios" Giveaway!

No, I'm not giving away a studio!  But, I am giving away the latest Studios magazine!  I apologize for asking you two days ago to come back and then I wasn't even here yesterday to answer the door.  My day got away from me.  


So here's the skinny:  You'll have several chances to enter the giveaway and win the Summer 2011 issue of Studios Magazine:

  • For a second entry, reply to this post and tell me where you create.
  • For a third entry, blog/tweet/Facebook about this giveaway and come back to this post to share the link.
I'm not going to ask you to follow my blog, but I always appreciate followers!  The giveaway closes at midnight on May 31, 2011 and a winner will be chosen at random and announced on June 1st.  

If you aren't familiar with Studios magazine, you may have seen the Cloth, Paper, Scissors publications.  Same company - Interweave.  This magazine retails for $14.99 and is full of wonderful pictures, articles, and creative ideas.

  1. YAY!! My favorite organizing solution? Um...more space. But I have VERY VERY little space in my current area. So, I use a lot of clear plastic shoe boxes for my notions. I have a plastic shoe box just for rick rack, one just for bias tape, one just for zippers, etc... For now that will have to do for me, but it sure looks better than it did a few days ago in my area!

  2. Right now, I create on my sewing table which is in the eating area off of my kitchen.

  4. I don't have an amazing organizing solution. I have shelves where I have all my fabrics folded to the same size and stored in. This looks nice and makes it easier to go through my stash when looking for inspiration or fabrics for projects.

  5. I am so very fortunate to have my own sewing area. We had our basement refinished and all of my sewing and quilting things are down there.

  7. I would love to have a look at your studio in that magazine. I'm not that great at organizing but I am getting better! I have a sewing room over my garage.

  9. How exciting, you're in a magazine.....whoohooo! Congrats!
    So, OK, my favorite orgaizing is a bookshelf, from IKEA that I purchased for our living room and then after some furniture rearranging, I moved it into my sewing room and I LOVE it there. I have all kinds of pretty boxes that store ribbons, stamps, paper, my sewing books, brushes, scrapbooking supplies, sewing supplies, etc....

  10. Now, my place to create is my Hobby/Sewing room that is part of our garage. It's a seperate room heated and the walls are purple, floors are black and white tile, with lots of table space to spread my goodies. My DH gave up that space for me to get away in and create, and make a mess and have fun! I love him!

  11. I use plastic totes to organize my fabric. I like things from ikea for nicer looking storage of smaller projects/notions/tools.

  12. The house we live in right now doesn't allow me my own dedicated space. I share real estate with the home office and a large entertainment center that didn't fit in any other room. (I filled up the space where the tv would go with sewing things.)

  14. How exciting for you to be recognized for your obvious creative talents! Where I am living right now I don't have the beautiful studio that I did at my last place, but I have made do wonderfully. Years ago, I bought a large silver teapot with a missing lid and an extra large mouth (hmmm is there a subconscious thing going on??) in which to store all my paintbrushes, scissors, random pencils and pens. Right now it sits on top of my refrigerator, out of reach of my grandsons, and it looks like a crazy steel/wooden flower arrangement. It also has a big handle making it easy to pick up and move around.

    So pick me! pick me! pick me! I want the magazine so I can see your studio and ponder over when I want! pick me....

  15. Let me begin by saying "Pick me! pick me!" My place is smaller now, but my son-in-law redid my kitchen and he put in a big eating bar with an extra large surface. Plus he thought out space for drawers and cabinets for my art supplies as well as his boy's supplies. They know which drawers are theirs and which are mine. We create together while sitting on our bar stools. He also put in three drop lights to light up the surface at any time day or night. It is perfect for us. (pick me, pick me...)

  16. Ok! Final step! I wrote a blog about you and your studio and the fact that you were published. Pick me....

  17. I use a plastic over-the-door shoe hanger for storing my cones of machine-quilting thread. Thanks for the chance!

  18. OK -- comment number 2. I usually create in my basement quilting studio, but once the warm weather starts, I'm often sewing outside on the back deck. Thanks again for the chance!

  19. I just found your blog at Sew Many Ways blog. I would love to see your studio in that magazine.
    I have lot of my fabric in plastic tubs and I have tried to organize. Maybe Studio magazine could help me.
