Craft Space

 **Addendum**- I have since updated my space a little bit since I purchased the jet max cubes.  I will take updated picks soon.  Not much has changed, but wanted to update this post.   - Kari 1-25-11

Hi blog readers!- I thought it would be fun to share some photos of my craft space.  I haven't officially done this, and thought you all might be interested to see where my crafting takes place. SO- without further or do....

This is the main view when you enter into my room.  It is a small room- but I am blessed to have this space.  My hubby was sad at first when I really was serious in started crafting- and "took" away his computer desk, but he is fine with it now.

The next two photos are just closer shots at where I store my punches, and my ink tools for distress inks.  Then you see my embellishment center.

In the three tiered  basket is where I store my distress inks, and my cat eye inks, and Smooch brush inks.  Then to the right in the pink organizers is where I have my clear blocks for clear stamps, pop up dots, other adhesives, and lots of other little loose things and tools.  Then, to the right of those is my turntable caddy that I purchased from Michael's with a 40% off coupon.  LOVE, LOVE this thing.  I would be lost without it.  It houses my Glue Glider Pro, the only Copic Markers I own ( which is slow growing), my We are Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, glitter/gel pens, brayers, paint brushes, etc.

This is directly behind me, and this is where I store/keep all of my paper.  I also have a BYGEL rail in the middle of the wall there and I made my own "Clip it UP".  This has most of my clear stamps, letters, and other stickers, and embellishments. Then, on the shelf above it is my mat stacks, and 8 1/2 X 11 card stock, and on the tables are my 12 X 12 papers, and my inspirational magazines.  And last but not least....

This is where I store my embossing folders, and my dies.  I bought this at Pier One many moons ago, and I used it for my CD's, but now I have only ways of storing those, and put this to good use for my folders and dies.

Well- that is an overview of my craft space.  I love it mostly.  I have areas in the room, but it is just the places where I store my stamps, and ink pads, etc, and they are in the Sterilite 7 drawer plastic containers that you can get just about anywhere.  Maybe I will do a video walk through, but for now, this will have to do!  Thanks for checking it out!  Later my friends....

Stay Inspired,


  1. OMG. I am so jealous of your organization!!! I love that white storage thing on the wall - where did you get that? I want one!

  2. Hi Darlene- Thanks for wonderful compliment! That is an Embellishment center and you can purchase them at Michael's Craft stores. They are around $80, but if you can get a 40% off coupon, you will be all set! Good to hear from you!

  3. Your craftroom is very well organized and inspiring! Have nice sunday!

  4. I love your use of space and the purple walls. I am in process of putting together an office/craft room in a small place so I enjoyed seeing yours. I really like the converted (I'm thinking)shelf on the wall..clever! I look forward to your updates.

  5. Thank you Sussie!- I appreciate the nice comment!!

  6. Lisa Lo- Thanks for your kind comments. Yes the shelve what attached to another one from a big shelf that I have had since I was a kid, and it followed me through all my years, and it was time to make use of the shelves in other places. the purple color on the walls was already painted and I did not choose the color. I like it, but would rather be a lighter shade because it makes the room dark, that is why I have so many lights.
    Thanks again for looking at my blog!

  7. Verry nice space you have. Looks like you have all you need to do some awesome laouts......

  8. love your ideas! I am in the process of putting together my craft room and your photos are great inspirations!

  9. Thanks so much Wynne- I will have some updated photos soon.
