My Craft Space Reveal

Today I am sharing "My Craft Space" where all the creativity you see here(In my blog) happens.Are you excited as I am ? Let start!! I welcome you all to My craft space tour.


Let me first start with the location of my space. I share a part of Master bed room as my craft space where other areas of the room occupies many other random things expect a bed ;) . Yes, we are using guest room as our bed room because this master bedroom takes a lot of time to heat up in the winter as well as to get cold in summer due to some draft in the windows.A lot of other random things include a dressing table ( which I did a makeover recently and will be posting it next), a keyboard , a big old chair , a closet full of household things. Inspite of all these randomness, my husband still calls it as my craft room and I call it as "My craft space" ;) as I don't have a lot of space to put up all my craft supplies. Make sense ,right? Hoping one day I will get a dream craft space where all my craft supplies has a place.

When I started this blog, I had small table and a cart to hold my supplies, and I was using the whole house as my craft space .My husband and I then decided to switch things up . We totally discarded the small glass table and now I am using a "TV" table (I call it like that as it was holding the television before ) as my craft table. You can see that table in the picture below where I am sewing an Apron with my sewing machine on the table.


If you are following me here,by this time you would have spotted the things hanging up on the walls around the table. The one on the side is the Ribbon and Tape Organizer ,the main wall has the thumb tack wall art and the corkboard converted inspiration board. You can see all those DIYs by clicking the links.

Next, lets have a look into my supplies shelf. I am warning you ahead, this is not the most organized shelf. It is the most cluttered shelf with as many organized trays and boxes which the shelf can hold.Due to the space constrain, I have all of my supplies in one shelf , one cart and two extra DIYs boxes which don't have place in the shelf  so it goes under the table;)

On the top of the shelf : I have some of the stuffs that I made( DIY Memo board, DIY Flowers & Vase ,Calendar )in the baskets and also some magazines and books in them. Oh! That teddy bear !! I got it as a gift from my bestie for my birthday two years ago!(I like to have it in my craft space,some sentiments you know !!)



On the next shelf : I have dyes, glues, paints, sewing supplies, wood burning kits, some pencils, paint brushes, scissors, glue sticks, foam stickers, marbles, pebbles, etc. Not so fancy, right ?? Most of the containers are all DIYs and used contact paper and packing tape for labeling the containers. Why packing tape ? you ask because it acts as a dry erase thing so that if I want to change the contents I can easily do so.



Here is my Rit dye collection along with a bottle of inko dye , mod podge and rubber cement.


My all glues collection includes : Elmer's white glue , gorilla super glue , gorilla epoxy glue, E6000, G.S.Hypocement, Aleene's fabric glues. If you want to learn more about glues and its uses, click here.



My random glass jars collections include my sewing supplies and miscellaneous items.


I have all of my paints contained in a DIY basket which you can learn how to make , here. Along with other organizing supplies which you can DIY at almost no cost.


The third shelf contains my cutting mat, scrapbook papers, stencils, stickers,spray paints, beads collection, a DIY box full of miscellaneous stuffs like leather cords, laces,$1 ribbons,etc


Fourth shelf has a sterlite box full of fabrics scraps from previous projects, a DIY basket of cardstock papers and a hole punch machine(Came into my craft stash just because I used it for my Calendar :P, It is my hubby's)

Next on to the cart :It has my stamps, stamp pads, sharpie markers, fabric markers, polymer clay supplies, cookie cutters, jewelry making tools ,my sewing machine's manual, wire, pedal, etc. It also has all my wrapping papers and some extra tapes on the sides.


And that is how I have all my craft supplies stored mostly in my very own DIY organizers and also with the help of some plastic boxes and a cart. I am planning on making a catalog for my craft supplies(Have you made any ?) because sometimes I don't remember I have certain product unless I go spend hours digging through my supply stash. You know I said about two DIY baskets before. I have all random supplies like glitter ,pipe cleaners, bamboo skewers, extra masking tape, foam brushes, cork board, poster board ,etc etc. So It is difficult for me sometimes to surely say I already have this particular supply so I can make a craft out of it.Lets see. I will surely share it with you all if I make one. If you have already made one, share it with me in the comments below. 

One of the best thing which I like about my space is the windows and the light. It is so bright  which also brighten my mood and helps to kick my creative brain. That is all about my craft space. Do you have anything that you want to know more about? Ask me in the comments.Here is the whole view of craft space.And Thank you for taking the tour along with me!

  7. Your work space looks great, and I am a bit jealous! :) I don't have space for a dedicated place, so all my supplies share space in a closet with other household items.

  17. God morning it was it was so nice seeing you in the pictures. I love your Craft Space and you did a nice job with the space you have. I have a actual office but it ends up with items from other part of the house in it. So right now it is stacked to the ceiling.
