The other day, I was looking around my studio and thought that people might be interested in how it REALLY looks! Not how it looks when I clean it up for pretty photos, but what it really looks like when I’m working in it. So I grabbed my camera and started recording…. Please note my most excellent camera skills, ha ha. Also, the big orange extension cord because when I picked up the camera to use it, I realized that the battery was dead (doesn’t that figure??) So this is my
Unofficial Studio Tour!
I have done a couple of how-to videos, but I’ve never done a video post for my blog before. It was kind of fun… let me know what you think!
Here are the links mentioned in the video:
The “official” studio tour (aka the pretty photos)
Fabric Covered Window Shade Tutorial
Also, check out my YouTube Channel, where this video is posted, as well as some how-to videos that I did last year. I hope to add to my video “collection” this year.

Please- let me know what you would like to see in future videos! I’d LOVE to hear your ideas!!
That makes me feel lots better about mine! ha ha. Just joking it isn’t too bad. I only have 1 room for art/sewing & computer but it works fine – oh and 1 more closet for fabric and other stuff. Wish I could show you.
That might be an idea – ask others to share theirs just for fun.
That is a good idea, Mary. I always love to see where other people live and work!
Thanks for the tour – nice to see the “real” side of things!! I am also happy that your cat gives you some room of your own!!
Oh yeah- the cat is so gracious to allow me in there!!
What a beautiful studio…..studios!! It is cute how you have so many set up for your cat!
It’s really not so much for the cat’s sake! It’s more so that she will leave me in peace once in a while to get some work done… you know how cats ALWAYS want to be right on top of whatever you are doing!
This was so much fun! Love your creative spaces! (Give the kitty a snuggle from me!)
I will give her an extra (((snuggle))) from you, ha ha!
Wow..you have a LOT of studio space. I have only one room and it is very crowded and VERY messy. Nice for you to have all this space and it is not very messy. Love all the cat space! I like your neutral spare bedroom for photo shots! Lovely, all of it.
Thank you! Yes we are fortunate to live in an old house with lots of rooms. My downstairs office is in the front of the house, which used to be the formal living and dining rooms. We never used those rooms (we love our large, more informal family room and dining space)so it just made sense to convert the space to studio space which gets used all the time.
I love how organized you are….enjoyed this video!
Thanks, Barb. It was actually fun to do! And I’m not always that organized- the day I did the video, it was not that messy. Sometimes, it gets really, really messy!
I. Enjoyed your studio tour, it is always nice to see how an artist works.
Thanks, Debra! Glad to have you along :)
I liked viewing your studio in its natural state, and love that your cat co-starred. It’s a beautiful place to “go to work.”
The cat is the star of the show all the time!
Loved your Video!! thanks for sharing a visit to your Studio’s with us!! Feel like I just visited with a dear Friend! Very fun visit!!! You did grrrreat job on this first video…& Yes, please…more video things ahead! :)
Ohio Hugs! & lots of Blessings!!
Thanks, Lori! Yes I am trying to think of ideas for another video. Any suggestions?
I enjoyed the video tour so much, and I think all the bloggers should do that! We love to see where you work and how you live. It’s just more inspiration (and ya know, inquiring minds just want to know how the other half lives – heeheeeeee).
Lynn- I think that accounts for the popularity of all those real estate and decorating shows on HGTV- we all want to take a peek into where other people live :)
I enjoyed your video immensely! – Gave me some ideas to get my studio organized! (and an excuse to go to ikea) :)
Thanks for sharing!
I still feel like it needs to be more organized- I didn’t show you what it looks like INSIDE all those cabinets, ha ha.
Wonderful rooms and I really enjoyed the tour. You are very fortunate to have such talents.. Hope to see more when you can.
Thank you, Claudia. What would you be interested in seeing? I’m trying to come up with more ideas for videos.
I left you a comment on YouTube and then realized you might not check there often! I LOVED the studio tour and laughed all the way through at the accommodations you make for the cat because I do the same for mine! Oh well, they give us unconditional love right? Your house is lovely and your work is amazing. I would be thrilled to see more videos, in depth of the studio, tutorials on your projects, whatever you feel like filming! Thanks for sharing with us.
Great studio tour. Your work space looks so neat, compared to mine! You have so much wonderful space to work in and be creative. How nice!
Love, love, love your un-official studio tour. Great job at videoing !! Please do more. What an amazing area you have. You are sooooooo BLESSED to have all that room for the designing and quilting that you love. An extremely lucky lady. Love all the colors you use in quilt making. They are my beloved colors too. I can tell by all the materials and bolts you have in your studio. Love your white IKEA shelving too. They are on my color wish list, too.
Thanks again, and keep up the GREAT wook, Jacquelynne. Darlene….
Love the tour of your studio. Maybe I can absorb some of your creative talent through osmosis by seeing your work areas. Your cat is well taken care of too so you can have some alone time with your fabric. I have a large puppy that wants constant attention and is always after my fabric etc that is too close to the floor. Constant interruptions. Have a great weekend!
Loved your unofficial studio tour. You have a lovely home/studio. I wish I had the space that you have for creating your beautiful quilts, crafts etc .I think it would be a great idea to do more videos. Videos gives a more personal feel for the participants that are doing one of your projects.
Even in work mode your studio is beautiful.
That is fun to see..I like seeing what other crafters area looks like, cause I always feel like mine is such a mess…but I do know where most of everything is when I need it…lol most of the time anyway…
Thank you for sharing! Truly enjoyed it!
I really enjoyed seeing your tour. Maybe I should do a before and after photo shoot of my sewing room when I get up there next week to start cleaning. Having my 20 yrs old grandson in that room for several months, I’ve not touched it!!!
Thanks for sharing, and I would enjoy seeing more videos like this one!
