Good Morning Just A Scrappin' Fellow Crafters,
I want to write a HUGE thank you to fellow DT member, Brenda, for sharing with us her fabulous craft room last week. Today, we are exploring the craft room of fellow designer and blogger, Cindy. Cindy's craft room illustrates that any space within one's home can become an inviting, creative oasis. So sit back, relax and enjoy.
Hello everyone, it's Cindy from Creating with the Heart. I have a large family and a small house so instead of a craft room, I have a craft corner. Before I met my husband, I had a two bedroom condo and the second room was my craft room. When he moved in with his two kids, I had to move all of my craft stuff into storage where it sat for 3 years! When we finally decided to buy a house after my son Tyler was born, I insisted that there be some kind of craft space for me. We ended up converting the family room into a huge master bedroom and there was a nice size corner that was perfect for a craft space. The only problem of course, is that I have way too much stuff for just a corner but after not having a craft space, I just feel lucky to have a space to call my own.
I have a 6 foot desk which houses one of my paper cutters, copics and the tools that I use most often such as scissors, punches, acrylic stamp mounts, piercing tool, two way glue pen, and my Ott-Lite. I have a "buffet" which houses designer paper, stamp sets and misc. On top of the buffet, I have my Cuttlebug, my Cricut and my stamp pads. My dad bought my buffet at a yard sale for 50 bucks and I absolutely love it. Above, I have a peg board which is where I have my stickles, cuttlebug folders, chalks and glitter. I also have two bookcases which house paper, dies, stamps, misc tools, buttons and other embellishments. My Cricut cartridges, books and overlays are stored in the artbin cartridge containers. Under my desk, I have cropper hopper paper rolling storage unit for my cardstock and a plastic bin with drawers which house my punches, ribbons and primas. I won't show you what's in my closet, behind my door and under my bed but I have definitely outgrown my space.
What I love most is that I have my own space, I can leave projects out and my children know not to go into my corner. Being able to have my cartridges, stamps, inkpads, cuttle bug and Cricut out makes it very convenient to use. I think that for crafters out there who are not fortunate enough to have room to call your own, I think that it's very possible to claim a corner in your house with the right storage and a desk that you can claim as yours.
Thank you for stopping by,
