My craft room

I missed signing up for Where Bloggers Create. http://mydesertcottage.blogspot.com/2010/04/where-bloggers-create-ii.html

But I think it is such a cool idea. I'm going to enjoy checking out many of the links.

Anyway, I thought I would share my room with you all. I've been organizing in there-which seems to be an on-going thing with me. A lot of it looks a lot better, but I still need to sort through and clear off my table and the top of the storage unit.

I use a lot of things for storage-baskets, tins, boxes, plastic storage containers with lids.

I have so many things I like to do so have to try to store so many different things. I love to scrapbook and I do some sewing. I've cross-stitched, knit, crochet and quilted. I've also started doing mixed media arts. Lately it seems I do more organizing and purging than anything.

I also have some of my many books in here. The most organized things are the bookshelves.

I took a picture of the table, but its a diaster, so I'm not showing it to you until things look a bit better.

Maybe by next year it will all be neat.


  1. What a wonderful room. I have to organize my books, you have inspired me. I have been hopping around and feeling so inspired to redo my room. My husband and I have talked about moving my art room downstairs to our family room...I'm always down there. A great reason to organize my supplies.

  2. Your room just brings a big smile to my face - I can really relate to wanting to do so many things. Thanks for visiting my blog and keep creating!


  3. Thanks for visiting me and touring my creating space. You sound a lot like me with all of your varied interests. Hope you join the party next year. Thanks for sharing your space.

  4. Thanks for popping by and saying hi. Wonderful books so organized and I bet filled with lovely inspiration.

    Have fun crafting!!

    Many blessings,


  5. HA! I would LOVE for you to come help organize me!!! I bet even your messy table you won't show beats the heck out of my mad scientist room! It took me a month... A WHOLE month... to clean up enough for you to come visit me!

    LOVE your bookshelves - and your baskets - and well... everything!!!

  11. Oh I love that you do so many things all in one area, wow you have a lot of books there.
    Thanks for visiting my blog, love new visitors.
    My son is stationed in Georgia right now, love the area.

  12. Looks like you have a passion for books like me! But you have more storage for them than I do! Thanks for visiting my blog - I find the garden cloches at all kinds of places. Flea Markets, Homegoods, gift shops that sell home decor. You just have to keep your eye out for them!

  13. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Much appreciated are your kind words! Your studio looks loved and I love that! Smiles!!

  14. Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog! Your creative space looks wonderful...and real:) And I thought I had a lot of books. Enjoy your trip to Tybee; it sounds like a great place to relax & unwind:)

  15. Glad you came to check out the party...and participated too. I loved getting to tour your space in return. LOVED hearing "Georgia" while I checked out your blog.

  16. Hello, I love your craft room! Everything is so sweet and organized... looks like you love books and magazines as much as I do! And I save all of mine too... your blog is lovely! xoxo Julie Marie

  17. Wonderful creative space! Love that you claim a messy table - mine is always in that state! Thank you for visiting my space- you are right...I do love my books too!! - Angela

  18. Yep...that's a lot of books! I wasn't able to play in the where bloggers create party last year as my studio was a mess. But I'm so happy I got it spiffed up this year. Course it never stays that way. LOL Thanks for the visit & the flattering comment!

  19. Howdy NanaNay! So nice to meet you! Your craft room is brimming with inspiration! I could curl up in a corner with coffee and just go through your books and loose all track of time - wonderful collection! Glad you found me in crazy Blogland - I look forward to visiting with you again!

    Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!

    Hugs & Blessings,

  20. Bee, I usually do that, but end up sitting on the floor in front of the bookshelves reading and trying to decide what to do next.

    Thank you all for coming by.

    I'm still going through the "Create" posts.

  21. Hey!!!
    I think you and I can make a really good deal...
    Let me go help you purge (there's some really cool stuff I have my eye on...haha!) and then you can come help me clean my messy room! How's that???
    I'm looking forward to seeing your creative space next year for Karen's party :)))

  22. Awe, come on! Share the table...LOL! Oh I can relate to that. Thanks for stopping by my blog, too. I see we do share a fondness for books!

  23. Hi Renee, Thanks for stopping by my little blog... I am so glad you still shared your room.. Oh and the truth be told my craft table is a disaster most of the time.. Thats how a create... I just love looking at your pictures... I just signed up as a follower.
    So I'll be back..
