A Tour of my Craft Room

1.27.2015


In the past I've always had my scrapbook space (or creative place) tucked away off in a corner such as when we lived here or in a shared space with another room like when it was in my bedroom here. This is the first time I've ever had a whole room to dedicate my crafting to and it's so very nice! It's interesting though because it's the one room in the whole house that has wood walls which makes it darker than any of the other spaces I've previously had but...I make up for the dark, funny walls with all the space that I have gained!


What I find personally interesting is that I always seem to gravitate to setting certain parts of my space (no matter where it's located) in the same way. I've had these desks for so long now and they are covered in paint and a bit marked up but they work. I attached curtains to the front of them to hide storage underneath. It's where I keep papers, albums, and all of my design team supplies and work.


Behind my work station and desk I have my camera and lenses on a shelf, bins of small embellishments and my sewing machine is on the top shelf. I got my sewing machine dust cover as a gift from my mom (found on Etsy)...she got me a coordinating one for my Silhouette too (on the top shelf on the bookcase on the other side of the window).


You can see it in this shot. I LOVE these covers so much!


I am so excited to have this fun little cube storage unit now too. I picked it up for $30 locally and the grey bins were $4 for two and are perfect for housing little things. One holds all my adhesives, another is for my inks, one is for my copic markers and another serves as a place for my paints and embossing powders.


My bulletin board serves as a little inspiration board of sorts. I have two of my favorite layouts on it, a picture of my mom and dad and some favorite supplies that hopefully will inspire me to create.


Here is a close-up of my little storage unit. I am so happy with it! As you can see, I have a mix of old and new things in my space. I love the white metal basket in the center of my cubbies. Right now it holds my loose single clear stamps that I've accumulated from kits and design teams, etc.


In addition to holding my Silhouette machine on the top, this shelf stores more embellishments, small tools, rub-ons, ribbons and all of my punches.



 I've got random boxes and bins around holding different things such as my letter stickers...


On the wall across from my desk is this old wall shelf meant for holding plates...I use it for storing some minis and cards that I've made. The hanging basket (it's actually one of those three tiered ones) to the left will hold my handmade cards. I haven't moved them into the baskets yet since I just hung it up today.  :)


Underneath this is a low, long table that holds my printer and a small TV. I forgot to get a picture of this.

And then I can't forget to share Zoey's little easel that has made it's way into my space. She works here quite often and it also serves as her little work station of sorts. The basket underneath holds a box of her markers and crayons, paper and her laptop.


So there is a little peek into my space! It's usually not as organized and picked up as it is now so I had to share pictures while it was still in good shape. The only thing that's missing is a comfy chair...I have my eyes on a nice grey one that I'm trying to save up for. It would be nice to have a place for a friend to sit if they were to come over, or simply a place for me to chill when not creating!
