Studio Spaces Book Review

Better Homes and Garden's book Studio Spaces  is a 168 page book full of DIY organization tips for your craft space. Like all Better Homes and Gardens Books the photographs are clear and beautiful. The book is divided into six chapters. Designer Studios,Studio Makeovers,Get Organized,Small Spaces,Shared Spaces and Project Ideas. The book shows many craft studios and spaces,which are nice to look at, but the area where the book really shines is in giving the reader organization ideas. It gives many different ideas for storing different types of craft supplies. My least favorite chapter was Project Ideas. Any serious crafter will find these a bit to elementary and you can find many more challenging and new ideas on the internet. Although the rooms in the book are nice to look at they are a little too perfect! I personally like the craft spaces in the magazine Where Women Create  that are a bit more "seasoned" and not so staged. I also find the interviews with the artists much more interesting than in this book. They book cost about the same, but Where Women Create is a magazine and this is a book. So if your looking for a book that has a bit more focus on organization and storage ideas than you may find this book useful.       … [Read more...]
