I am sure by now your lives are settling back into the routine of school, work and homework. Mornings are substantially darker when the alarm goes off and the evenings are cooler. We still have a couple weeks of summer, but the signs lead us to autumn. Although I enter September with a smile; I love the cooler days and nights [23C is perfect in my world!], I am sad to see the somewhat unstructured days of summer begin to be a memory. I’m sure it’s because I know what potential harsh winter weather is down the pipes!
For now though I enjoy evenings spent indoors in my craft room scrapbooking, a hobby that gets very little of my time when it’s hot and humid! If the change in weather hasn’t sparked your creativity…Kelley Clarke’s craft room certainly will! She’s opening her drawers for us to peek inside!
I love my new Craft Space! It is so much better than being upstairs in a spare bedroom.
The main reason for building this room was so that didn’t have to decide between spending time with my family (my husband and my Dog) or doing some scrapbooking. I always felt guilty if I went upstairs to do crafts after supper instead of being with them, we decided to convert a portion of our basement into a craft space so that I could create and be with them at the same time. My new space looks right into our TV room. We can watch football, a movie or the news together.
This makes me SO HAPPY, because I can be with all my loves at one time; my Husband, my Dog and of course Scrapbooking!
I had to compromise a fair bit on the design. We built it more like a kitchen or bar area; even a kid’s play area so if it was not to being as a craft room it would make re-sale of our home easier. If we ever chose to do so! All-in all, it is still much better than being way up on the 3rd floor, all alone and in a very tight space.
I JUST LOVE MY NEW SPACE!!!!
