I have a designated studio/office space to house and to work on my hobbies. But usually I will paint in the kitchen, bead and Zentangle in the living room, draw on my bed and I’ll read anywhere!
Did you notice none of the places mentioned was the studio/office space? In my defense, I paint in the kitchen because I need the water and Acrylic can be easily removed from the counter but a nightmare to remove from the hardwood floor or my desk. Also, the lighting is much better in the kitchen. As for the rest, I have no good excuse except maybe I am just an odd duck.
So, depending on what I am working on, one room (if not all 3) is a mess!
One day I came across OrganizedlikeJen. In this video, she was talking about counter space (I think) and as an afterthought really, she starting talking about this bin that she kept on a stool in the bar area of her kitchen. I thought it was such a good idea so I began to acclimate a bin to suit my needs and it has been perfect in keeping the hobby clutter to a minimum. I can take this in any room and at arm’s reach.
In lieu of the fact that I can not find her video, I am posting pictures of my take of the “office on the go” or would it be “hobbyist on the go?”
We are still working on the kitchen and at the moment we have no baseboards…Sorry…. Anyway, this is my portable hobbyist on the go. It could stand be a little wider, but so far it is working well for me.
Normally, there would be a book in there and beading supplies. But I am not beading at the moment and I am reading on my tablet. The planner would be housed in the kitchen, and will be after the remodel.
It holds all of the everyday stuff that I enjoy so much. I can put my things away without actually having to put them away.
And if I wanted to, I could put in my tablet and chargers, throw it in my back seat of my car to take on trips:)
