Happy Sunday, friends! I hope you've had a wonderful weekend. I had a great time playing in my new craft studio this weekend! My little guy, Sam, joined me to do some crafting, too. He makes some of the sweetest cards.
I thought I'd post a few photos of the new space.
Remember, I didn't say it was perfect. I just said that it works perfectly for me!
My rusty vintage stool that was a garage sale find.
My work surface with important things handy...inkpads, markers and pencils, paper cutter and scissors, cleaners and adhesive. Still need to hang my inspiration boards. Plenty of room for some vertical wall storage later.
On my left...PTI stamps, papers and accessories.
Cubbies for the little things.
Ribbon and paper storage, with a few Longaberger baskets thrown in.
On my right...my beloved Big Kick, punches, papers and more.
A basket for my dies and a drawer full of Tim Holtz Distress Stains and Mists.
Buttons and boxes for storage. You may have noticed that I kept things fairly symmetrical on the left and right. This makes my husband, Mr. Monk, very happy. My craft space does reside in the back half of his man cave, after all.
Proof that I still have a few wood mounted stamps hanging around!
My SMASH book and supplies. After unearthing these during the move to the basement, I spent the weekend filling up some pages in my SMASH faith journal. It was a lot of fun to make something just for me.
Now, in the spirit of keeping it real, I thought I'd show you a better shot of the back half of the basement. Yes, that's a foosball table and a train table that's been converted to a LEGO table. But look at those windows and the natural light!
There it is. Not Pinterest worthy, and not appearing in upcoming issues of Where Women Create magazine. But it makes me so happy that a.) it all fits perfectly, and b.) I used what I had to create the new space and c.) it has jump started my creativity again.
Thanks for touring my new craft room today!
