Crafting Space Blog Hop With Frosted Designs

Welcome to the Craft Space Blog Hop!  If you have just arrived from Frosted Designs, you are in the right place.  I am so happy that you are here to take a tour through my Craft Room.  Be sure to read the entire post, you don't want to miss my give-away!
Here is the view from the door:
The table and chair is from an old kitchen set. The mirror was an estate sale find, and the filing cabinet?  That was a freebie that needed to be painted black!

Standing in the door and looking to the left, this is what you see:
Two folding tables are wrapped in fabric with velcro.  The shelf holds a few finished pieces, and you may remember the wine cork wreath from here.
Underneath those tables you will find:
Those famous iris carts! Yes, I used to have them filled with wood-mounted stamps.  Since we've gone acrylic, they now hold all of the "stuff" that we crafters collect.  You know, glue gun, craft heater, punches, Cricut cartridges, embellishments, chipboard, and other goodies waiting to be altered! I think this is my favorite storage space because I was able to re-use something that I already had!
I keep my stamp pads here:


This is just a quick shot of the goodies on top of my filing cabinet:

On the other side of the window is my desk.  It is an old drafting table that I refinished.  The chair is my Sahara Chair.
Now, let's move on to the closet.  I removed the doors and hung curtains for better access. 


This is where I store my papers and my stamps.  As you can see, those wire cubes hold a ton of paper!  My stamps are in the drawers and I still have some room to grow in them!

Last, but not least:

The Pig Hooks!
These hooks are very important.  Not only do they hold my apron, they hold the curtains when I need to get into the closet!


I'm sure you've noticed how this room is very neat and clean.  The reality?  When I'm working, it's a mess!  Here is the proof:


I hope you've enjoyed this tour of my craft room.  The original plan was to make it a Shabby Chic space, but, I think it ended up being a girly space that is uniquely me!   I feel so fortunate to have a space that is all mine!  Thanks for taking the tour, and I'd love to hear what you think of it!


Now for the prize!  Because you took the time to take my tour, I am offering this stamp set as a prize:



You only need to do 2 things:  1.  Become a follower of my blog. 2.  Leave me a comment.  I will announce the winner, right here, on Monday.


The next stop on this hop is Teresa Jaye's blog.


Here is the complete Blog Hop Line-Up - in case you get lost!
Have fun!
