Planning a candle studio remodel

In my non candle making part of life our family spent most of 2012 remodeling our kitchen, dining room and living room.  It was an interesting experience and I'm glad to be done with it!  We lived in perpetual dust for months

2013 will by my studio's chance to get it's make-over.

I'm beyond excited to get started and I want to share a little of what's planned.

The goal is to have a light, airy room where the clutter of candle making can be easily stored out of sight but readily accessible.

Finished product can be stored and retrieved quickly.  

Ikea has a useful 3d computer program for designing kitchens and with it's help I was able to layout the entire room minus the main pour tables, packing area and the office.

The photo above shows half of the room, the other half is the office which is competed.

Pinterest was my favorite friend during the planning stages, where I found cleaver ways to organize the items I use most often.   Pinterest also led me to several amazing bloggers who shared how they created and organized their craft rooms.  I am eternally grateful to them

 Still haven't picked out the dates of our closure, I'm hoping for Jan but knowing us it'll be Aug and 118 outside.

Snowflake candles

Now that the office is finished I've been sitting back here building a new site and organizing computer files.  

Those are two projects in my planner that I've ignoring for months.

What I haven't ignored was the need for snowflake candles.
