New craft space

A few redesigns of organization and I finally have something I can show. Organizing is messy business.

Welcome to my new craft space!

(I'm a wee bit too short-legged for my chair so a folded up blanket gives me a boost - also this may be the ugliest floor in the entire world, nay, universe)

Thanks to Gussy Sews (and some scrapbook paper and some paint on a thrifted frame) I have art that matches the pretty art my friend Megan got me for Christmas.

I've had my eye on this "tea & happy things" print for quite a while. (It's from the hairbrained schemes.)

I have a complete mishmash in here, but it works. I pulled the drawers out of this little cabinet thing to get twice the storage capacity (see the drawers in the crate holding yet more).

Even candle holders work great at holding supplies.

A collection of random boxes hold all my jars of beads.

Thrift store jars hold some other supplies and my jewelry making tools are in easy reach.

I have some seriously great art in here. What I've already mentioned, as well as an ornament from Sarah Lambert-Cook and two mini prints from Kate Gabriel / Flapperdoodle

I have a good view of the field and treeline through these two corner windows.
Hello corner of a shirt. Did I mention this is in the corner of the laundry room? :)

I feel very organized and like I have all kinds of space to spread out and create because:

I love this space, but I admit that I envy your amazing WINDOWS EVERYWHERE more in this room. With big windowpanes to put things on. Oooohhhh, they are dream windows to me. I'm a dork, I know.

Cat, dorks of a feather stick together! I was thinking the exact same thing! I would spend all my time dreaming out the window instead of actually working if I had such a lovely view.
I also LOVE that last quote. How true it is!

Yay! The art looks great on your wall! So wish I could pop in tomorrow for some tea :).

Inspiring space to hang out in.

Here's to creativity!
