In the Beginning....

One of the known side effects of crafting is accumulation. But this happens slowly over time, so rarely do we see the evidence staring us in the face. But, this weekend, I had to open my old photobucket account and I found a picture of my original PMC workspace. This is from 2006 when I got my first packages of PMC.

That's how innocently it all began. And now...I have two worktables..

And several storage units for...well...stuff. This is my favorite cabinet, and the only piece of furniture in my workshop that I actually paid money for, everything else is street finds or hand me downs.

Thanks Boy's and Girl's Club of Venice.

And this one is my favorite table top storage piece, an old cigar box with drawers. Isn't it the sweetest thing you've ever seen?

Thank you Kate.

And that doesn't even begin to address the tools, tools and more tools I have accumulated during this short 3 going on 4 year period.

Aaaaand I have the closet you saw in my "Order Restored" blog from a monthish ago. Wow, where did it all come from? Don't get me wrong, I love my stuff and wouldn't change a thing. But seeing the humble beginnings this weekend, then looking at all that I have now, and thinking of all the stuff on my wish list...I was a little amazed.

Don't know how I missed the photos of your studio space, but now I'm really jealous! It's so organized, and 2 work tables!!! I want it!
