Laci Hodges ZigZag Studio

The ZigZag Studio

What kind of Art/Crafts do you do?
Crocheted jewellery, hats, will be making some clothes soon, and just about anything I can get my hands working on!

Where do you create?

Since I only Live in a one bedroom Trailer with my husband and 3 kids under 5, I JUST collaborated with my stepfather to help me create a sewing "bookcase" that folds and latches when not in use to save space, it is AWESOME.

How do you keep all your supplies organised?
painted baby formula cans, clear tupperware boxes in various sizes, peg boards.

How do you keep yourself motivated to keep your space tidy?
Its natural now that I have my hideaway.

Any tips for how to keep art spaces tidy or organised?
No matter what space you may or may not have, there is ALWAYS a way to make it work for you, I seemingly have absolutely NO space in my home but it just goes to show that anything is possible if you put your mind to it! you Just work with what you HAVE, not with what you don't.

Do you get stressed out when your space gets in a mess?
Not too much, it just means I need to take a break and reorganize to make it work better. Everything around me is constantly evolving, I just have to stop some times and take note of the changes and adjust accordingly.

If you could have your dream space tomorrow what would it look like?
It would be so much more than a hideaway, At least an entire room, if not an entire FLOOR of my future house, lots of shelves, lots of fabric, and lots of bright blue and green paint!

Do space limitations get in the way of projects you have in mind?
Silk screening , it sounds fun, but I just can't do it in my space!
