My Craft Room

During this past summer, I was finally able to set up a craft room in my house.     We took our guest bedroom and made it into a shared space for my daughter (homework desk, piano, toy/game storage) and my crafting.   Since we rarely have guests that spend the night, we decided that this would be a better use of our available space (and a lot cheaper than remodeling the basement).      I was inspired to take some photos and share my space after reading the post by Ashley Robinson on She Sure is Sketchy, Amber of Amber Ink’s blog.

 

 

My desk, laptop, printer, and most importantly, my iPod dock.

 

 

 

My shelves with the boxes from Ikea that I used to store my crafty goodies.  I have them all labeled so that I can find what I am looking for.     

 

 

 

Copic marker storage.  My DH made this for me using a basket and foam board.  I also have some air cans, Stampin’ Up markers, and Copic ink refills on this shelf.    (Sorry the pic is a bit distorted.)

 

 

 

This is the shelf above my desk with all my buttons and bakers twine.  Yes, I have a problem – I keep buying more and I can’t help myself.    That is a jar of rice on the shelf, I am planning on making more fleece hand warmers and need it for filling.

 

Here are a few more pics of my crafty space.

 

 

 

I hope  you enjoyed this peek into my “girl cave”.     Have a wonderful Sunday!

fab room cheryl. i am lucky enough to be having an extension built, which will mean my very own craft room - i cant wait! where did you get your furniture. i particularly like the chest of draws, with all the shallow draws. ive looked at lots of craft furniture sites but they can be very expensive.
This is amazing! Wow, you are really lucky to have such a space just for crafting! I'm jealous! LOL :-) love, lucia xxx

Awesome space. It's so streamlined and clean. Mine will NEVER look like that I'm afraid... :-( for one, I have too much stuff and 2. no IKEA close by so storage option as in drawers, etc would be twice as expensive.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.



I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)




Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
