I'm lucky enough that I have my own room for all of my crafting adventures. My own space. Untouched by little hands. It's my own little retreat.
I started out in a small little corner of my dinning room. As my kids got older and my crafting needs got more serious I moved from my dinning room to my kids playroom. Half Playroom/Half Craft Room. Heck no! My own little retreat surrounded by legos, video games….etc NOISE!!
Eventually, I pushed them out and Liz's craft room was formed. It's a work in progress. I started with bins and a table. Not long after there were bins, carts and several mismatched tables. It was a hodgepodge of stuff. Then I got the mother of all crafting armoires. A SCRAPBOX!! Google it and you'll see what I mean. I was in heaven. It's been quite a few years since then. I've been very happy with my space but my room is always a work in progress. As my work changes my needs change. I've outgrown my beautiful box and my closet looks like a tornado has hit. I don't even like to open it. The last couple of times I've opened it I have THROWN stuff in there. (That's awful!) I have piles in every corner of my room. Party stuff, Kids stuff, scrapbooking stuff….It's become a catch all for everything that doesn't have a place in my house and we don't want in the garage.
I'M GOING MAD IN HERE! The only uncluttered space is the small desk I have my computer on. My desktop, a small unused lamp, a notepad and the occasional cup of coffee.
As luck would have it my hubby and I were discussing ways for me to work more efficiently and have decided to revamp my craft space. YAY ME!!! I'm one happy girl! I can't wait to show you pictures of the before, during, and after…
In the meantime I've been browsing around Pinterest and found a few pictures of things I like. Do you have your own special place at home? A reading area, crafting space, sewing room…etc.
