Early mornings...

Maybe you remember...??!... John took the last three months of the maternity ( paternity ) leave, but today was the last day... so new beginning: Now Seth has to follow me daily to the studio... Oh yes, I can hear you saying "hmmm, is that possible...?" And yes, it is. We get up at 6am and after 1 hour of eating, getting dressed and drinking coffee ( eh, mostly me ) we're heading to the studio. Seth plays in the "kindergarten" ( a low platform about 5 square meters with a wooden floor, fence and of course a little gate ). I got some ideas for decorating it, but that has to wait until spring, because now starts the Pottery Time... well... I quickly fire up the stove and then I have about 1 hour for doing a little miscellaneous work before it is time for Seth's morning nap at about 9am... Two hours of throwing pots, then eating, playing, taking a walk, working, eating and Seth having an afternoon nap. Again two hours of concentrated work. Seth wakes up and he plays a little before we drive home. 12 hours gone since we stood up.

Note to myself :...Make tiny mittens for Seth just like my own studio ones.....

i love your set-up. when my older son was small (1 and 2 years old) we had a little pop-up play house at the end of the loft that held our office; he had a little push car and his toys were in and around the little house. he would "drive" back and forth between his toys and our desks. i have lovely memories of that time. :^)

That looks like such a lovely, inviting space. I'm sure he loves spending his days there.
I once heard a fellow crafter say she put a play pen around herself and her sewing machine and gave her toddler free reign of the house! Your solution looks great.

What a beautiful spacious view for creating. How wonderful that your work allows Seth to be with you. I'm sure it will stay with him and inspire him, seeing you engaged in creative work.

I like the desk and I can easily imagine the light you have in the studio. Beautiful place!

i love your studio. Those wind turbines look great.

2 sleeps a day is very lucky for you. It is when they are about 3ish that it gets a little harder to manage your time with him and your time for just you.
enjoy your crafting.

I love your studio space, and the fact that it's adapted for children it wonderful! I like the natural woods and the minimalistic look of the light walls and decor. It looks like it is the kind of room that has a good feeling when you walk into it.

I love that you can see the wind turbines from your studio! My two year old would be in heaven - he is obsessed with windmills:) Whenever we drive down to Bavaria seeing the wind turbines is his favorite part.
