$4 and 4 hours later!

I found just exactly what I needed for my desk.

Lots of nice size cubbies for pretties and things I like to keep handy for crafting.

But this is how it looked before….

and after 4 hours of ‘playing’ and moving everything around, I was happy with it.

Of course I still move things around a bit every time I walk in that room! lol

The blue cabinet is still handy on this wall.

This is a small room for my sewing and crafting.

It also has a computer and desk, (on a wall I’m not showing in this post) files and an architectural table. Have you ever used an architectural table? You can change the height and it’s perfect for putting a cutting board on top. Right now hubby is sorting papers and files. The closet is ‘his’ and filled with files and important papers…like maps!

So many of the pretty things I keep close to me white I ‘work’ were made by my blog buddies and friends. If you see something YOU made…shout it out in the comments!

Do you have a special room for crafting and sewing?

Or you an organizing nut like me?

That is a very organized space! Have you ever shared this room before? It's great. No, I've never worked with an architectural desk. I like your new cubby!

Joyce Mayer said...

Love your craft room, it's so organized and neat. I never thought about an architectural desk, but now that I think about it it would be perfect for crafting.

Prudence sends her love ♥ she is having so much fun at summer camp.

Donna said...

What a great little wood cubby organizer! I would have been arm wrestling you in the store, trying to buy it for myself, LOL. I love your studio space! And I spotted a Bernina machine too! My 10-year old beauty is still going strong. I guess I need to feature my studio space sometime. Sigh, it always seems like I have something else going on and I never get around to it.

Catherine Holman said...

I'm honored to have my artwork on the walls of your sweet, charming, and very organized creative space!
My art room is not nearly as organized and I share it with my hubby's office space.

Cherry's Prairie Primitives said...

Great job!! Everything looks super cute!!

Stacey said...

That looks like a space made for creativity. I like all your little figurine friends on the shelf. I don't have a crafty space...have to admit that I'm not terribly crafty.

pembrokeshire lass said...

My sort of room. Just love it! Hubbie has just made me one very like yours and it is so useful. I love all the separate compartments! Joan

That cubby is great! I think I had one of those tall elf pencils many moons ago!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

You have done a great job of organizing. I'm hoping once I get all my crafting things here, I'll figure out a way to organize so I can be creative!
hugs,
Linda

Linda Walker said...

I am not that organized! Nor do I have a room to just sew or make crafts in. I am thinking of the 2 bedrooms upstairs (one is already empty and the 2nd one will be empty soon) and thinking about turning one of them into my craft room.

I want a tidy space like yours!!! Thanks for sharing!
Linda
Se What!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Your space looks so well organized. Love the new cubbies and all your little pretties! I do have my own "fort" with no boys and their stuff allowed.

Julie Corbisiero said...

Hi Diane, I like your new pinterest button, it looks so nice! You are lucky to have a craft room. I use a guest room for my yarn and projects and a section of my basement too for my yarn. One day I will organize everything so it is all in one spot! Lol.

The Boston Lady said...

How I wish I was organized like you, Diane. With a move looming I feel quite overwhelmed and very dis-organized. I love your "creative" space. It reflects the fun nature and diverse interests of it's creator. Ann

Incipient Wings said...

four dollars!
what a great little addition to your desk!
fits in perfectly.

I'm not much of an organizer, but when I go in to work on my gypsy wagon, I can move things around on the desk for hours:)

have a happy day.

podso said...

That is just the perfect cubby hole shelf and you have filled it so nicely with pretty things. I like your work space and can see all kinds of creativity going on there!

I'm constantly organizing but then I turn around and it's messed up again! I live alone so it must be the dogs or the cat! LOL!
Your room looks very nice and organized! I love the cubby holes!

Karen Harvey Cox said...

What a wonderful craft room. Now is this in your home in North Carolina or in Florida? Everything looks so neat and tidy. My art room always seems messy.

Happy new cupboard.

Brenda said...

I love your bright and cheerful room. It inspires me to get in mine and finish getting it cleaned up, so I can mess it up again! It's never ending, but I love it.

Marcia Pilar said...

I love the cubby, Diane. So many pretties. I love to surround myself with all those wonderful gifts from blogging friends. There's nothing like it. This is a great room. I'd probably never leave. :) Have I ever used an architectural table? LOTS. I studied interior design in college, met my husband in an architecture class. Had one of those for years. They are great.
Enjoy your creative space. Love the stacked fabric.

GardenOfDaisies said...

What a sweet little cubby shelf! It's just perfect for your things. We crafty people are always looking for one more little drawer or shelf to hide things away.
A whole closet full of maps? Really? I need to come and visit your house. I love maps. Sometimes my family calls me "Map Girl". (I'm a bit of a geography nut.)

Leave It To Davis said...

Haven't seen any posts with your dolls lately...how are they doing? I miss seeing them posed on the furniture and in the car. You always made them look so cute!

Linda said...

Such a beautiful room - crafting heaven.

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...
