Jayne's studio was so fun to work on. Who wouldn't love to be amongst beautiful fabrics, beads, trims and creative company! Jayne is the creative handbag designer behind www.designsbyjayne.com . She is also a wonderful mother + wife. Her story brings tears to my eyes and I'm proud to be a part of her life. (Look for her story in a future post) Jayne gave me a ring when she was ready to take her biz to the next level... take a look, I think she's got it going on! Take a look at the BEFORE + AFTER PHOTOS yourself...
This is the view as you entered Jayne's studio. The back corner was for her finished handbags.... The dresser was full of beads, trim, fabric, and misc. items. It was like a treasure hunt, full of fabulous suprises and rediscoveries as she cleared each drawer!
The sewing area was functional but needed some fabulous...
Jayne's business has grown a lot in 3 years. Often growth = a bunch of small solutions..... I call it modge podge. And Jayne had a case of it!
This is Jayne's project table.... design, cut + create. I didn't like that she faced the wall when she has beautiful trees + sunshine on her back side... notice how we just flipped her project table in the after shot.
Now isn't this a better entrance to Jayne's studio! I recommended she splurge on one large piece and ditch the modge podge. She was so thrilled when this piece arrived that she said she "just wanted to hug it".
This unit houses all her trinkets + baubles, marketing materials, accounting, and textiles galore. I'd love for her to add some under the shelf lighting to really top it off!
Most of Jayne's beads were in tiny ziploc bags... now they inspire creativity.
These fabulous acrylic drawer dividers (from the cosmetic area of Storables.com) work perfectly for Jayne to quickly view her buckles + clasps. The drawers are painted black on the inside, so I simply placed a white piece of paper under the dividers for better viewing of the trinkets.
I love that Jayne can quickly glance at her trim and be inspired by their beauty. I suggested they not be tucked away... it bothered me to have them in a drawer. Jayne created this display, the trim is pinned into the board- simple + functional.
Jayne's entry wall now serves as a display area for her fabulous handbags!
