A New Craft Room

***BLOG CANDY LINK***
Good morning friends!  We’re still busy painting and it was so windy yesterday that we couldn’t paint outside so..I decided to tear into a project that I’m now regretting a bit.  I changed a few rooms around and decided to paint the one that will be my new craft room.  I’ve had a huge area to craft in and decided to go back to a smaller room.  Well, it’s not really small at 20 foot x 15 foot, but my other area was double that.  My though was if I reduce the size of my space, maybe I would quit filling it up Smile..we’ll see how that works.  LOL!
So, here’s the room I was in….

Here’s the room I’m moving in to.  This was my original craft room and the lighting, etc was wired just for me…why did I ever move out of this room???

Some shelves and one of my very favorite things is this old Hoosier drawer I found at an antique shop that hold my Crafty Secrets goodies SmileThis drawer is one of those things that just makes me happy Smile!

SO..Now the question of the day..to work outside or stay in and try to organize?  This chaos really might drive me crazy if I don’t get it organized.  I haven’t created for almost a week because of outdoor work but I’m missing my creative time Smile

Holy Toledo girl! That's your house?? I thought it was the craft isle at Hobby Lobby! No wonder you can create so many things in no time flat! Green with envy - disorganized or not!

I would create more if my room was better organized. The problem for me is that I once sewed (lots of stuff there), did decorative painting (oh more stuff) and now this inking thing (tons of stuff). I need your basement! If it is nice outside, do that and save the hotter or not so nice days for the crafting! Oh, keep both rooms!!!

Janna Werner said...

Good luck Jan, everytime I reorganize I forget where I put things! I am always reorganizing my stuff to allow new stuff into my room, so some days I will be pulling my hair out looking for that thingy, that was just over there!

Audrey Pettit said...

Wow, what an amazing space you have to craft in, Jan! And what an incredible amount of goodies. Looks like a store in there! ;)

Your original space looks the best, brighter and more cheery. I too am trying to organize my mess. Lately I have been buying more than creating so I know how you feel. I would die for the space to put those paper racks, my favorite part of your craft room, I am a paper hoarder, lol.

Christine said...

What a wonderful space to create in!!! I'm just jealous that you have so much room and sooo much stuff!!!

Olga said...
