My creative space is totally a work in progess.  But here’s what I have so far!

The do dads UNDER the cutting table= very messy! That cardboard box is filled to the brim with quilt tops waiting to be quilted.

A.. What do you use your space for?

I use my sanctuary for quilting, needle punching, paper crafting, gift wrapping, card making, painting, and for escaping the chaos whenever necessary.  It’s my “Calgon Take Me Away” spot.  I always have a stack of books on c.d. to listen to while I am creating.

B. What is your favorite thing about your space?

It’s the one spot in my house that lets my “inner kid” out and I can decorate it in a way that doesn’t have anything to do with being a grown up!  Not to mention NO ONE is allowed in there so it is an ALL MINE club house! =)

 C. What struggles do you have with your space?

It is way to small. I tried to get the hubbs to let me have the master bedroom for my sewing room, but it was a NO GO. hehehehe

There isn’t any overhead lighting, so at night I have to use 3 lights and an ott light to make it workable.

When I hit the lottery I will design and build an ENORMOUS sewing room!

D. When do you use your space?

I use my space every single day. I sew and craft all hours of the day.

E. Share an organizational technique that works for you.

Organization?  What’s that? LOL  One good way utilize the unused space under a cutting table or side table is to skirt the table with fabric then store containers, plastic drawers, and boxes underneath! 


Hope you had fun visiting my space! Why don’t you head on over and link yours too!
later gators! Melissa

    A very girly craft studio for sure. Love all the decorations. And I notice your new little quilt on the back of the wicker chair.

    Love you space…my colors are exactly the same…love me some turquoise and red!!

  3. I do always enjoy looking at the creative space of others. I am using our son’s old bedroom now. It’s not too bad in size and I stay pretty organized with the Koala cabinets the hubby bought me years ago. I also don’t have the overhead lights and have to use three full-spectrum lighting lamps:/ I am in mine every day too! What a great escape!
    Thanks so much for sharing!! That was fun!

    You’re such a GIRL! If a little girl walked into that studio she would learn to quilt just so she could hang out in your space, LOL! I LOVE how you hide the mess, now that is amazing…I thought you were a neat freak until I saw behind the curtains. Now why the heck hadn’t I thought of that? DUH! Thanks for the tip! B=)

    What is that Halloween Fun stitchery pattern hiding under the cherry skirt? It looks adorable! Isn’t that funny, someone hundreds of miles away peeking into your shelves and cabinets?
