Sometimes, I just need my space.

So here it is, my crafting area made for me by my wonderful hubby who may not understand what women love about making things with paper or cloth, but supports it anyway! LOL

We all love being down in our new basement room.  It's open, and cozy at the same time.  We were able to get the most amount of living space that we could by seperating it into three sections.  The first is a seating/tv area, the second is the kiddos play area and the third is my craft space. Here are some pics....

We used our 12 ft folding table, and added some shelving units above half of it.  This is great because it allows me to have plenty of storage space while still having the entire table to work with. 

And due to my love of all things paper, my husband found these great drawers to oraganize all of the papers by color.  Again, giving me easy access, but still giving me plenty of room to work.  Here's a close up...

I should mention that I also adore ribbons...

And punches...

And I guess just stuff in general...

Don't mind the toys on the left...I don't collect those, I promise! LOL

Here are a few pictures of some of my projects.  The majority of these are from my scrapbooks, but I am also beginning to make cards.  Here was my first...

It's not great, but its a start.  And I got to use ribbons!  That always makes life lovely.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to head back down to my basement.  I've got lots of inspiration!!! 


  1. I love your new space to play with your "toys." And I love that you have time again to do these things that you love to do. :)

  2. I'm so thankful to read your notes on your crafting. :) You have a great space, glad you are able to use it!!

  3. There's nothing as nice as having a spot for your creativity.
    I love the card, too. Such a great little saying.

  4. Love your space! Thanks for sharing it. :) With one son in college, I'm just starting to plan a "Mom Cave". I just love the idea of having a quiet, creative space of my own! I hope you have many wonderful, peaceful, creative moments in your space!
