Craft Room Tour

I'm excited to share my craft space with all of you :)

We've lived in this house for about 8 months now.  During that time I have completely re-arranged this space 3 times.  I am finally super happy with the way everything is organized and find it really pleasant to work in and easy to keep clean.

I do have to keep some things in the basement for lack of space, such as my crafting books & magazines, yarn, fabric, and things that are for other types of crafts, such as my cross stitching kits.  Once we finish our basement I will get a bigger room down there and it can all be in one place.

Enjoy the video - I hope it gives you a few ideas, or just that you enjoy the peek into my space.

Amber, love you r room, although it is too small for me LOL, well you saw what I am dealing with on my swap of rooms. I am getting closer though and you have inspired me. I never thought about making a video when I'm done. I just need to quit buying stuff! LOL I like how your FIL built you your ink rack and your husband made your table. My dad made me a ribbon rack and is bringing it over tomorrow. Things that you want that either you can't buy or would be too expensive, it is nice when you have someone who has that capability, saves a lot and makes you happy too! I had to laugh when I saw your stamps on top of your shelf, I said, oh I see some familiar stamps. Also, I have decided to go with the ArtBin containers for my Circut cartridges. I am going to store my boxes away in a closet, but really like the plastic bin. You can hold 16 in the bin. They sell them at Joann's for $25, but I have been using my 50% off coupons on them. I can't wait till you move to the basement to see what you end up with down there, when you have more space. Great job!!!! tfs Tami

WOW! I love your crafting space. I like your idea of how you hang your stickles with velcro and the tissue box for your ATG gun. You have given me lots of ideas on organizing my room. I have a screened in porch that we put windows in and now that is my room. I also store some of my craft items in the basement. Thanks for all of the great ideas. Great job.

Love your room. Can you please tell me what you used to hang your stickles upside down? I tried this with velcro but they keep falling off. Great idea though!

I did use velcro to hang the Stickles. I haven't had them fall off. I just buy the round self adhesive pieces and they seem plenty strong.
