Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party - Show Us Your Craft Room!!



Happy Monday!! This is my second post of the day. For the Paper Playtime Use A Button challenge, please click HERE. I am so excited to be a Craft It Up & Link It Up Guest Designer for my sweet friend Tara of Craftin Desert Divas!! She hosts a brand new linky party every other Monday and you could win fabulous prizes!!

For Linky Party #6, the theme is Show Me Your Craft Space. The sponsors are:
 
Robins Nest - $10 gift card
Robin Carroll - $10 CTMH gift card
Craftin Desert Divas - $20 Michaels gift card


For this linky party, please only submit one picture of your craft room. Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along.

Here is my craft room...


It took quite a bit of clean up to be able to take this picture!! It looks nothing like this now :) My Dad built everything for me...the long worktable and cabinets, the wood shelves, the stamp holder and ribbon holder. You can kinda see along the inside of the desk, there are spaces for my paper cutter and scoreboard so they are always close when needed.


I don't get to work with polymer clay as much as I would like, but I still have the oven I use to bake the clay.


My stamps have outgrown their shelf...they are stacked two deep. The binders on the shelf hold many of my clear stamps.



I love this cabinet, especially because there is room on the top for my sewing machine, Distress-it-all, hot glue gun and heat guns. I keep all of my Spellbinders and Tim Holtz dies inside, as well as embossing inks and powders. The Spellbinders are on magnetic sheets that I can flip through to find what I need.



The binder on the top holds all of my embossing folders.  The drawer on the left holds all my Tim Holtz, Dylusions and Wendy Vecchi stamps. The cabinet of the right holds my stencils and the rest of the stamps that I use most often.



This room also functions as an extra bedroom if needed. The daybed has a trundle beneath that pulls out so two people can sleep comfortably. The shelves hold some of my cards and cards friends have sent to me. The flexible arms lamp was a freebie...our recycling center has a "trading post" where you can put things you don't want anymore. I saw this, grabbed it thinking that even if it didn't work, I wasn't out anything. There was a woman behind me that I think was upset she didn't get to it first ;) Not only did it work, it had never been used!!


This is were I keep all of my paper stacks and scrap paper. Every single drawer is filled to capacity. I really need to quit buying paper and work on using my scraps!! You can't see the top of the table, but I decoupaged different ocean scenes on it so it makes me happy just to look at it. It has two chairs that go with it, but I don't have the room for them.


I am so excited about this cart!! I love to shop at Goodwill for my other passion besides crafting...books. I rarely find anything crafty there. I just happened to see this cart and knew it would be perfect to hold my art supplies. Not only that, but my Dad was with me and it was senior day so I got it at 30% off...this baby only cost me $3.50!! I love bargains  :)

So there is my craft room!! I can't wait to see yours!! I hope you will Craft It Up & Link It Up!!

  10. Wow Lisa you sure have a lot of supplies(like most of us do) and so organized...love it. I too love to shop at thrift stores or finding that storage treasure at garage sales- always have an eye open for more items to repurpose in my craft rooms also.

  11. So fun to see the creative space you have for making all your awesome projects! I love that you are a bargain hunter and you repurpose things. So COOL! Your space is fantastic.

  12. What a great craft work space! Love all your supplies too! I am a thrift store, garage sale junkie too, in fact I used to be the General Manager of a million dollar thrift store. It's funny that it is so chic to thrift and repurpose now, I have always junked and have found some amazing buys! I come by it honestly, My soon to be 90 year old dad goes for walks with his walker and on trash days he usually comes home with his walker loaded with things he has picked. I did a scrapbook page of him and one of his finds walking up the sidewalk with it on his walker, I called the page "The Original American Picker".

  34. What a great space, Lisa! I probably have as much stuff as you, but mine is spread all over the house. I need to organize it all in one space. My room itself is awesome, 5 floor to ceiling windows that give lots of natural light. Like you, I also have a sofa that opens to a bed, just hope no one needs to open it up! Thanks for sharing your space, it has inspired me to ORGANIZE!
