Welcome to My CrAfT rOoM

I have done a previous post of my studio here 
I'm always changing my studio around, well that goes for the livingroom, dinning room you get the picture, lol
Here are some updated pictures

My Desk and Comfy Chair
My comfy Chair. Took me forever to find a white chair,lol

wire basket holds seam binding and stencils
This is the side that I stand at which is most of the time when I'm crafting.
I store all kinds of mixed media stuff in the bag that is hanging to the left. The basket hold tulle.
that little floral thing that is peeking out at the bottom
 is a round ironing board that I had out of a lazy susan.

Ribbons in Jars
This is behind my desk
I just started putting my ribbons in these glass jars that I found around the house.
I still need more as you can see below. I stared sorting them in baggies by color.

Sorting my ribbons

Bin Shelf

inside Bins
Inside some of my sorted bins

letter basket,rub~on box and cricut cartridge caseses
I keep a basket filled with sticker letters, the floral box has rub-ons 
which I started using since taking Christy Thomlison on-line classes. 
Below are the Cricut Cartridge cases. Let me tell you I
had a hard time getting rid of the boxes for those cartridges, lol
Brushes and stuff

my favorite drawer
This is a drawer under my bench. My favorite drawer with more embellishment. 
as you can probably tell I collect all kinds of embellishment.

Inspiration ribbon clips Hanger

My mom made this for me. It's a ribbon with round paper clips sewn to it.
It hold pictures or whatever you like. I use it for holding inspirational items.

Great space! I have that Cricut cartridge holder and I love it but I too was perplexed as to what to do with the boxes..I didn't want to throw them away because I might want to sell them some day and felt I should have the boxes so I ended up saving them..Thanks for sharing your room..

Nice room,very organized!

Paper Memories4u said...

Love the idea of glasses for storage. It's great being in the hop with you. Dana

erinB said...

I'm sorry, did I see a typewriter?! Girl after my own heart!! I love using my typewriter in projects :)
New follower. My favorite tip? Put things away when you're done with them. No sense in needing to clean before you start the next time!

Lluvia Mata said...

Linda Dale said...

Great space with everything handy. Love your Chandelier. My favorite new tool is my Big Shot. I love, love it and use it all the time. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, Linda

MissVassy said...

I love that Chandelier that is hanging up above your desk. Where did you get that?

I do not have a craft room or even area for that matter so I can't keep my stuff all neat like you. I do keep my ribbons in clear plastic shoe boxes from The Container Store so I can see them. They are organized by color and I also have special Christmas and Fall ribbon boxes. Thinking of doing the same for my flowers because they are all hanging on my Clip it up now and I need to make space for other embellishments.

A Creative Journey said...

Love your scrap space!! I bet you have a bunch of awesome creativity going on in there! My best scrappy tip is when you are organizing- be sure you organize according to how you scrap. It will save you a lot of time if your items are organized how you think and not how everyone else does or what looks cute-that's what I am in the middle of doing right now! TFS! I am a new follower and would be honored if you would check out my blog and do the same at ACreativeJourneywithMelissa. blogspot dot com. Have a wonderful day!

Pammejo said...

Great space, loving that chandelier. My tip is to store your bakers twine in old fashioned glass sugar/grated cheese containers. tfs, Kim (

Tambo said...

Liz, your room looks very cozy. I love your white chair. I keep thinking that I am going to make a slip cover for mine, but haven't done it yet, since I love my chair, but it is an ugly brown. LOL I like the cabinet that your table is sitting on. It looks like something I have seen at IKEA. I like how you have things at the back of your desk that are an easy reach. The idea of jars for your ribbons is a good idea, but I do like the separation by color. Love your room. Happy crafting. New follower tfs Tami

Thank you for sharing your room! I love the ribbon your mother made that you clip up items on! I need to start doing that. My best tip is to use photo boxes to sort out various items.
