Hello August! You are looking just fine!

Summer continues to chug along…wonderful and warm here in Alberta. We are not used to such lovely weather for such an extended time and it looks like it will stay with us! Hopefully the rest of Canada is enjoying summer perfection!

We are heading south of the border this week to visit Kayla Cure in Andover, Kansas! Her space has some GREAT organizing ideas; I may have to use a few for my space!

 

My room is certainly not one of those designer rooms that is matchy- matchy. My furniture is used & repurposed and my decorations that I have are collected from garage & clearance sales. My walls need a serious paint job because my two little girls sometimes use it as their canvas. They too, like to use Mommy’s cool art supplies! This fun mix of treasures and imperfections is what I love best about my crafty space!

I absolutely LOVE the kitchen island I snagged at garage sale. I stand when I scrapbook, the kitchen island allows me to do so without straining my neck and back. It also has tons of great storage that can easily be accessed and it is right in front of the window so I can watch my two girls play outside.

Over the last seven years, it has been neat to see my space grow from a card table and a few plastic storage tubs tucked in the basement corner,  to over half of a spare bedroom. When I started scrapbooking, I was only going to make a baby book. I never really expected myself to fall in love with multi-media techniques and all the cool tools that the scrapbooking industry has produced. I started scrapbooking in 2006 and every year I grow a little more. I simply needed more space to sprawl and organize my crafty treasures.

I share this room with my husband who uses it as an office. He has his computer and desk set up in here and he really can’t leave because my Silhouette and Epson Printer are hooked up to his computer. I always felt guilty asking for a space of my own. We still needed a spare bedroom for family to stay, so I just asked my hubby if I could move in the office and “claim a wall.” Ha!  Poor guy is probably wishing he didn’t agree to let me move in to the office. It has certainly become more of a “craft cave” than a “man cave.”

  3. Hi Kayla! Great room! I live in Wichita, so we’re practically neighbors! I love your style!

  4. Ecclectic describes your space and I love it!! Displaying some of your art is beautiful too. I am in the process of moving my craft space and I too have a bunch of mismatched ‘stuff’ that I love and use. Gleamed some good ideas — thanks for sharing!

    I love to peep in to see how other people decorate and organize their rooms. I love to repurpose things, it make for a more fun and interesting room.I love your ideas! 😉

  6. LOVE LOVE LOVE the “Stuff I know I will never Organize” thing and, how do you have your Washi stored? Is that on those belt-type hangers?

  7. Very good blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed
    .. Any ideas? Bless you!
