My Craft Room


Taking a cue from Kelly, I thought I'd post a few pictures of my scrappy space.

I am extremely lucky to live in a 3-bedroom house with my husband and no kids, so when we moved into this house, the third bedroom was "given" to me as a space to craft.

The view from the hallway door:


An inspiration board that holds lots of bits and pieces I'm too stingy to hide away in a book.


I have another hanging inspiration board that has 50 clips for pieces I want to keep in sight while I'm working.


Right behind my craft table is my stash of paper, filed in these crates by manufacturer, my Thickers, Scrapbook Trends and Cards magazines, as well as a vintage typewriter that was a gift from my parents.




I have a giant mid-century cabinet I bought from a friend for $50, and it holds all of my stamps, miscellaneous tools and lots of other things I want to hide away.



I keep my bits on top - mostly buttons, brads, chipboard, etc.


Down close to my crafting table, I keep all of my kits and collections in Studio Calico Crop Bags - they have saved my scrapbooking sanity since they came out.


I have a vintage Coke crate that holds my inks, paints and mists, and scattered around are wire shelves that hold buckets and bins full of more flowers and chipboard than any one person needs. Oh, and also, all of my fantastic SC stamps.



So that's it! The place where I create. It's by no means perfect, but it's mine and it's my happy place.


xoxo,
Steph W.
