You may remember that The Man and I completely overhauled my craft room a year ago. You can find that post HERE. The basic layout has not changed, but the organization of my "stash hoard" has changed several times. I just consider that I'm fine-tuning my organization skills....HAHA!
I am still 100% happy with this layout and adore having this island work station. It seldom looks this tidy, but my goal each day is to leave it like this at the end of the day....okay, that rarely happens😼.
So what led to my latest re-do of this room, you might be wondering? Well, in case you're in doubt, I'm a very visual person and being surrounded by all of my colorful supplies really gets the creative juices flowing. At the same time, I am a very sentimental person with a big jolt of whimsy tucked in for good measure. There is no lack of photos in my space, but I felt it was lacking in some displays to draw in more whimsical and cute things, as well as old and new things that speak to me of days gone by.
This shelf above my sewing table use to hold jars of zippers, velcro, etc., but decided to find better homes for those items in drawers. Now this shelf is sweet, whimsical and never fails to make me smile.
This is a card my sister made me for my birthday this year. This is a piece of very fine crochet that our sweet grandmother made many years ago. I didn't even know it existed until this precious card arrived. My younger sister and I had been estranged for several years, and we were just starting to find our way back to each other....this could not have been a more fitting way to reconnect and forge a bond that will never again be broken. Our sweet "Mawmaw Angel" made it all happen!
I have several apothecary jars in many shapes and sizes, so I decided to use them to display some fun and cute things here in my space rather than storing them empty in my decor closet. What could be cuter than fabric yo-yos? I think they will be adorable on cards or even scrapbook pages, and they are so much fun to make! I also adore this cute little tea set inside a cheese dome.
This space is just to the left of my sewing machine and the perfect spot for a cute pressing board!
I had no idea what I was looking for at JoAnn's that day, but this fabric just leapt into my cart. Isn't it just the cutest?
I changed quite a few things on top of my IKEA Expedit (now called Kallax). I've discovered I have a love for cake pedestals....some new, some old, and look so pretty just stacked or for use as display stands. I'm not in this room much at night, but I still like having little soft lights here and there.
Here's another apothecary jar filled with some colorful balls of yarn. The angel has been watching over our home for many years and has been clad in many different colors. This is her first time in this room and her first time at being white....she is destined to have more work done!
I'm always switching things around on the IKEA picture ledges, but I'm still truly happy with how these ledges work for my wooden stamps and paints.
This is my new way of storing/organizing my dies and embossing folders.
The top tray holds all of my planner supplies.
Washi Tape....let me count the rolls! I enjoy seeing how other crafters store their washi tape, and I have tried so many different ways. This is how I'm currently stashing most of mine.....I do have a good supply of season-specific rolls located in my seasonal drawers. I really should share how I have those drawers organized....good for another post!
This is what they look like from the top....the colors are so vibrant! Cannot wait to start something!
I chalk-painted 3 tin pie plates from the $Store and a plastic turntable that I already had. I created the tiers using candlesticks from the $Store....already had those, too. I used E6000 glue just to be safe.
It holds a bunch of cute and useful things close at hand but doesn't take up much space on
my craft table!
Thanks so much for stopping by and allowing me to prattle on and on with pic after pic of my
Crafty Happy Space.
Hope you have a wonderful week!
