A Little Peek into My Craft Studio- Always a Work in Progress

Recently some of my blog friends have wondered about my craft space.
When my friend Marilyn came over with her camera she was kind enough to get some pics of my space. That way I could post them on my blog for all you curious crafters.

I did not use them all as I thought my space was not in good enough order. Those pics also helped me to see the space from an outside perspective which once again had me rethinking my storage.
In any case, there are only a few pics but they give you a good idea of my layout. One side has storage cabinets and a computer area. The other side holds a old kitchen table which I revamped and placed a glass top on to turn it into my "creative station". Flanking the table are 2 inexpensive book cases which I assembled- where I store items I use most. My Espson, my Cuttlebug, embossing folders, dies & plates, bling, pearls, buttons, metallics & Air Force Embellishments. On my desk, I keep a lazy susan which I painted black that has many of my favorite embellishments as well. Those are kept in a footed bowl & in ceramic,cream, crown candleholders. Say that fast 3 times! I love clocks, gears, arrows, acrylics, birds, butterflies & lots of Tim Holtz. To the right of that is my daylight lamp, Cricut Expression & a 3 drawer system for my stickles, alcohol inks, tools & adhesives.
This room came with all the built-in cabinetry, carpet & chandelier that is evident in the photos. At first I did not like those things but I have since reconsidered. I tried to work with all the existing pieces to make the space my own. As you can see, I certainly made the most of it.

I recognize how truly blessed & fortunate I am to have a crafting place of my own.
From the kitchen table to this...

I've come a long way. To God Be the Glory! Thank you to my dear husband as well!

  1. What a beautiful space you have created for yourself. I love your storage ideas. I have a corner of my bedroom set up as a craft space. Hopefully one day I will have a room. I believe your space is what you make of it though. Thanks for giving us a peek inside.


  2. I love how clean and organized it is! Right now my "paper loft" looks like a cyclone went through it! ;o)

  3. Sonia,
    I love your crafting studio.
    Yes, I have been a busy bee and a tired one at night LOL. Thank you for liking the hats and the dress. I will have to take in the dress (I lost some weight and inches recently). I have another dress to make and the fabric is already cut, but, I will probably have to cut it down a size. I was in the process of re-upholstering one of our chairs, but, that will be on hold till after the camp is over.
    I am enjoying working with my sewing instructor and I am learning how to teach students. Thank you for your words of encouragement. I will be working on "creature bean bags" for my nephews tomorrow during the class and when I get home. I will post pics when I get them done (maybe even a tute).
    You take care too sweetie!!

  4. LOVE your room, you did an am amazing job on it! LOVE how organized you are. I'm always organizing and re-organizing stuff in my room. TFS!!!!! -Samantha
