Where Bloggers Create Part II – My Contribution

Months ago, I decided to sign up for Where Bloggers Create Part II, hosted by Karen Valentine at My Desert Cottage.  My office/craft room is, like many things in my life, a work in progress.  I was so excited about this new found motivation to FINISH that ongoing project.  Yet, as it always does, life got in the way.  So, today in  true, air out my dirty laundry  transparent blogger form, I post my “still not finished” craftroom.  Maybe it will be complete by next year’s party. :)

When you first enter the room, I have a craft table where I can spread out whatever I am working on, including my sewing machine, which I keep in it’s case between the shelving unit and craft table.  It is also great for wrapping.  As you can see, I have attached rolls of wrapping paper below the upper shelves of the unit.

To the left of the craft table, I have my “office”.  A small breakfast table with drop leaves in front and back makes the perfect computer desk.  Behind the desk is a magnetic dry erase board with magnetic spice racks.  In front of the computer desk, I have a toy area set up to occupy baby while I work.

I hope you enjoyed the tour!!  If your new to my blog, please check out the rest…don’t forget to follow and comment!!  I love hearing from YOU!!

You have a very nice sized space and it looks to me like you are off to a good start. I love that you made a space for baby. Let your children see you create - I think it is important. Good luck and thank you for sharing.

Actually, this looks like a space you could craft in. Lots of light, room, and storage space. Thanks for sharing and opening it to us. I'm sure we'll see progress next year.

I like your space. It looks very neat to me. Love the big table and that you can have your computer in the same space.

I like the fact your little one can go in there and play while you create.

My craft area usually looks like a bomb went off and scattered stuff every where.
Every time I try to clean it up I get sidetracked by something to work on.

Very nice space and I like it how you also have a space for your baby. Nice to be able to work and have the little once near by (mine are now teens, so one comes only in to my studio when she wants to create... I love working together with her).

Your studio looks so organized. I like that you have a surface for wrapping.

Yes, I am still visiting the participants in the 'where bloggers create' event...and having a great time. Thank you for sharing your creative space with us. Have a wonderful weekend. ~Natalie
