Before I begin, I wanted to mention that this month marks five years of blogging, here at Note To Self. It's so hard for me to believe that when I started my blog, I had no clue the adventure I would be on, the friends I would make and the knowledge I would gain. Seriously, I don't know what I would do without this hobby of mine, and I am so happy to be able to share it here. Thank you so much for following me on this journey! Be sure to get to the end of this post for a little giveaway! Now, grab that cuppa, and sit tight...this is a long one. :)
I am super excited about my post today, because I have wanted to share my latest craft space with you all for the longest time. Katie, and I have been so busy with life, that this share was put on hold for quite a while. As you can see, there are leaves on the trees, people...leaves!
Now, I did a video of my old space quite awhile back (March!), and since then have moved down to my dining room. Yes, dining room. For some reason, the picture of the whole right side of the room is missing...but I have enough photos for you to get the idea of it.
The dining room is around 14x10, and I have literally taken over half of the room, lol! It works great, though. I get to be with everyone, and the toddler can't get to my things. So, this is my main work area. The saw horses, as well as the large wood table make it light and open.
I purchased two ink shelves from Organize More, and LOVE them. They are worth the long wait, trust me on that. I also have a storage until from Michaels, that houses my Copics, SC inks, as well as adhesives and black ink pads (in the drawer). I put my plastic drawer unit above this shelf. Also on the table, my Big Shot, and my Fiskars Paper Trimmer. Everything is within reach, which is a must.
Next to me, my lovely and fabulous IKEA rolling cart. I seriously love this thing. It holds my 6x6 paper, scissors, heat tool, and other stuff.
On the right side of my table, I put all of my cubes. Here I store white, cream and colored cardstocks.
Next to that, other patterned papers.
On top of the shelves, I have bins with my stamps, alphabetized by manufacturer.
In the drawers below, I have glitter, spray ink, paints, and such.
I have a drawer with watercolor products, such as Gelatos, Watercolor paint tubes, Inktense Pencils, and accessories.
This drawer has accents/embellishments and fibers.
Below that, a drawer of punches.
In the small cubes above, there are four small drawers, and they have embossing powders...
Enamel dots, and bling...
And, of course, extra adhesives.
Now, for some reason, like I said, the rest of my pictures got lost, but the large cubes on the bottom level really don't have anything useful in them. So, what do you think? I like it! The natural light is fantastic, and because I don't usually craft at night, I don't need a big ol' light. I plan on purchasing a floor lamp at some point, though. I hope you might have taken some idea or two with you, to use in your space.
Now, its not much, but I am offering up a little giveaway to celebrate my fifth blogging year. Leave me a comment, telling me your blog address, and how long you've been blogging (I would love to visit you)! If you don't have a blog, that's okay too, just say hi! You have until Friday, 11:59 EST to leave your comment!
So, I can't wait for you to see what my friend Katie did with her space. I love her sweet craft room, and know you will too! Thanks for stopping by!
