It’s another WHERE YOU CREATE Friday! We have a great space to share with you today with lots of pictures! Terri Kocher has been kind enough to let us in and tell us about her space! Enjoy the view and leave a kind word or two in the messages is you are inclined to do so, we love when you interact with us!
I have recently been laid off of my job as an office manager and have taken up crafting as a hopeful, full-time job. I am a CTMH consultant and am currently developing designs for workshops. I have made a couple of scrap books, but get overwhelmed by what I haven’t done, so I make cards. I love the [almost] instant gratification I get from making cards. I am honoured to be a small part of my client’s special occasions. It makes my heart happy.
When I first started crafting, I used Rubbermaid containers and would craft at the kitchen table. I quickly progressed into a closet downstairs, but the lighting was horrible. My son has flown the coop [It took FOREVER!!] and my daughter has taken over the basement, so I was able to confiscate a room for my very own. It’s my sanctuary. My happy place. My version of heaven.
My craft room is perfect for me. Everything has a place. I bought the Hemnes dresser from IKEA and use it for ribbon storage, misc. goodies, and Cricut cartridges. On top of the dresser is my Big Kick work station. In the two boxes on top (bought from Princess Auto), I store all my dies and embossing folders. I found the shelf at an online garage sale.
My two file cabinets house my 8 1/2 x 11 card stock collections, stamp sets, scrap paper and adhesives. Hubby bought me the printer’s trays on the wall for my single stamps. Of course, my craft room would not be complete without my Stamp-n-Storage ink pad and punch organizer. Everything all within reach but easily hidden when I am not in the craft room.
My room has a little nook, my daughter loved it and it turns out, so do I.
I have my embellishments in canning jars. LOVE!!
The closet is still a work in progress. It’s functional at the moment but needs tweaking for sure.
I have no idea how one person can accumulate so much stuff, oh wait, yes I do!! They keep making such pretty things, and every time I see something pretty, I figure I must be able to make something pretty with it!!
