i need some space.

crafty space, that is. hardeehar.

i don't know if it's just the color that i picked for my walls ("wedding veil") but my craft area lacks warmth. it'll need it soon, now that the days are getting shorter and colder. the following craft stations make me feel all happy and warm inside.




this is casey's. i love that she used clothespins to put up pictures (i just bought some from etsy and cannot wait to put them to use!) it just makes the space sweeter and more personalized.

i love her use of clipboards and the white boxes.

this is sharilyn's. i love the wallpaper that she had used to cover up the walls. and the stacks of fabric are just to die for!

i love the bulletin board! just like casey's peg board, sharilyn's bulletin board adds personality to the room.

although my dream of having a bedroom with a little craft station has finally been fulfilled, it still requires a few more things:
* a homasote board, similar to karyn's (i love the patchwork detail), or shiso mama's (via karyn).
i already bought buttons to cover from etsy as suggested by a tutorial on how to make fabric covered push pins from how about orange.
* storage space, especially for future fabrics. one day i'd like to have them all displayed in nice stacks (and to have sooo much!) like anna maria's.
* pretty jars and tins (i use mint tins for my fabric chalks and extra pins) for sewing notions
* and...warmth. hardeehar.

i will work on that soon.
what does your crafty space look like?
ps: my laptop is baaaaaack. woohoo!
