New Craft Room

We are finally able to get our craft room together!

This will be my third craft room, and with each move I lose some of my craft supplies (DS calls it garbage), but I did not lose as much this move as I did the last! It is going to take some time but I am excited :) This time my Dear DIL and Grand-Daughter will be crafting with me - it is so fun to have a co-conspirator ;)

It is a large room, wonderful space and lighting! The challenges are several because of hardly any wall space, a fireplace, and odd angles. But all that means is a chance to get crafty for our craft room...

This is from the sliding glass doors as you walk into the house: you can see the fireplace on the left and then the hallway going to the back of the house and a small corner of the breakfast bar that leads to the kitchen.

This is to the left of the doors, you can kinda see a sliver of them on the left , but see the big window in the middle, and then the fireplace to the right. This is the largest wall space we have to work with.

a better view of the fireplace (it is caddy-corner)

Here is to the right of the sliding glass doors... as you can see leads to another room (which is our sitting room) and the breakfast bar... which also sits caddy-corner. (and my embarrassing messy kitchen)

Here is the sliding glass doors on the right and the "Cat Area" on the left. If you look at the picture above you can see how the wall does not go all the way to the ceiling and a "bridge" across the gap to the other room. We call this the "catwalk" and our cats LOVE it. So in the effort of not having cats on our kitchen counters trying to get up on it, we made them a play corner that gets them up there... and down :)

All the junk you see lying around is somehow related to crafting (except for the motorcycle helmets! - wait.... hmmmm!) 

Plus what I have in my room and the garage! Haha, the garage:

Such a lovely space, and I can't wait to get it together enough to really start CRAFTING again and not have to put it up out of the way to go to bed! WOOT!

Anyway, between that and watching my granddaughter, I have been so busy that I have not been able to crochet! The kids got done at work early and came home, so I thought I would take the opportunity to update you on what's what here; now off to crochet!  :D


I absolutely LOVE comments, and appreciate you taking the time to let me know what you think!


  1. How wonderful to have a Crafts room such as this, to have a place for everything. I think that is every Crafter's dream. Enjoy it to the fullest.

    Have a wonderful Sunday!

  2. YAY! I'm dreaming of a craft room!!! I love the sliding doors to that fabulous porch, and it lets in a lot of light!

  3. Wow! This looks like an amazing space! We moved in October and I have done enough in my craft space to make a mess. It is a summer project to be sure. I am just now getting around to unpacking my home office. These things take time when one is working a million hours a week! I can't wait to see how your space works out for you. ~Kelly
