Brenda's creative space


I will let Brenda explain. 
About a month ago I decided I needed a sewing area more than a 10 x 10 foot dining room. 
I used a lot of low cost or free storage in this small space. The two tables are actually folding tables. I hot-glued oilcloth to them.I used a shelf from my closet that's typically used for shoes. I took low-cost jars and "spiffed" them up. 
This room has openings on all four sides. Two walls are French doors, one of which I covered up somewhat. One is a full opening to the living room. And one wall has a china cabinet (now full of fabric, of course) and a door to the kitchen. So this space had some barriers to overcome.

LeeAnn's new studio space

LeeAnn over at Flowerbug's Inkspot has an amazing new crafty space, thanks to her DIY husband! Check out the area for her classes:

Don't you love that bright, cheery green and the crisp white cabinets? And notice the size? They combined two rooms into one, giving LeeAnn an amazing 30 x 15 feet. Dreamy!

Here's a close-up of her workspace. Look at all that storage!

LeeAnn also has several wonderful storage options for things like stamps:


Sizzix dies

Punches (featuring those handy Ikea Bygel rails!)


And my favourite, paper storage in a SHOE cabinet (Ikea's Stall). How utterly ingenious!

Head over to LeeAnn's blog for more details and many more photos. Make sure you tell her Crafty Storage sent you!

You'll have seen the fabulous stamp storage that Ted uses, he has a dedicated post here explaining his system. Isn't it great, I wish I could be that organised - I'm getting there ...

Dawn's craft space

Dawn of JadeMingmei Designs, there have been a few crafty Dawn's recently ;O) has recently tidied up her craft space, it involved a trip to everybodys favourite Ikea. It took her 4 days but it was well worth the effort.


I love this simple COPIC and ribbon storage, in Dawn's words "the COPIC marker boxes are new. Each box has 2 compartments and I found these in the kitchen untensil area of IKEA. Directly below the COPIC makers is my ribbon storage box. The box is full of ribbon that comes on the smaller spools and they are wrapped around 4x6 cardboard pieces and stored by color families".
