We head to Hampton, Virginia to explore Suzy's cosy and organized studio where she sews and crafts.

"My favorite thing about my studio space is the natural light.  The room is a corner room with 2 big windows.  On sunny days the room is flooded with natural light."

Tell us about your space?
I live in Hampton, VA on the southeast coast and I have lived in this house for 9 years. My studio is located in a bedroom in my home.  It is a good size, about 16' x 12'.  This space is my personal sanctuary where I do most of my crafting, especially sewing.  

What have you done to make your space cosy, beautiful or inspiring?
I have transformed this space into my happy place by filling it with all my favorite possessions and collections.

How do you keep organized?
It takes a lot of organization to be able to contain so much stuff in this limited space.  I use every inch of space and I carefully laid it all out when I moved into this room.

Any tips & tricks for organising supplies?
I like to use pretty containers to corral all my supplies such as vintage planters and tins.

Which are your favourite possessions and are there any of your own creations on display?
Right now I am obsessing over vintage paper mache objects from the 60's and I have been rearranging things to display my growing collection.  I have a few of my own creations here and there, but mostly I have filled the space with favorite vintage bits and     collectibles from other favorite artists.

How do you organise your inspiration and ideas?
I have covered my walls with shelves and old shadow boxes to display my collection of objects that inspire me.

Where do you look for inspiration?
I have a large collection of vintage craft books, mostly from the 70's, my favorite decade.  I also read a lot of blogs and magazines.

If you had three wishes, what would you do to make it the dream space?
Wow, wouldn't that be dreamy!  If I could have three wishes, no strings attached, I would knock down a wall and take over the bedroom next door so that I could include my vintage wreath craft space with my current studio.  Second, in the bigger space I would mount floating shelves to display my vintage sewing machine collection.  I have a thing for old sewing machines.  Third and last I would build a long cabinet with space for my Vintage Visetti sewing machine, my serger and my free arm sewing machine so that I could just roll from from to the other when I am working on a project.
