Where You Create

Category

Happy Friday, our first of the summer! Hope your week has been wonderful! I also hope by now you’ve had a chance to check out our new updated website! We are THRILLED with the look. It’s fresh, fun and so easy to find your way around. If you haven’t had the chance to take the tour, I highly recommend it! You won’t be disappointed! Today we get to visit Tanja’s gorgeous space. Lots of attention to detail here, so be sure to take it all in. My happy place (a.k.a. oasis / mental spa / escape pod) is a spare bedroom. Lucky me! Just mine and everyone else is barred without approval. I know precisely when there has been an unauthorized visitor to “borrow” a stapler, scissors or pen; as they leave evidence behind.  Bless their souls, but they always seem to take the fine tip precious scissors to…

One more day until the official start of summer! We made it! WHOO HOO! Now let time slow down so we may enjoy glorious sunshine, warmth and colour that is ours to take in this season. My wish is for sunshine during the day and rain at night and time off work to enjoy it all! The long days of summer make me want to clean out corners of my home that get forgotten during the year(s)…my craft space is way up on the list of to-dos. I love bringing you WHERE YOU CREATE as it gives me lots of great organizational ideas! Here’s Claudette Nuttall’s creative space with more food for thought! Claudette share some crafty “yumminess!     For the past 35 years I have had numerous variations of craft spaces. Kitchen table (temporary at best), coffee table, living room floor, my bed, etc… Eventually my oldest daughter…

Happy Friday! Time for another WHERE YOU CREATE! Last year we took you inside the creative spaces of our Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine team members. I’d like to share another. Desiree is one of our Guest Designers; you can find her work in the magazine and on our blog. Her bio can be viewed on our home page at: http://www.canadianscrapbooker.ca/images/about/bios/desiree_saskiw.html  I know I am not alone in loving Desiree’s creative style, so let’s take a peek where it all happens! I wish I could say that my scrapbook “retreat” was as neat and tidy as I often see in magazines and on-line; however, my reality is FAR from it!  I am forever “pinning” ideas on how to be better organized in my office space, but the fact of the matter is, I NEVER keep it tidy! Although my office is not something I am proud of, I am happy to…

Friday again! Who doesn’t LOVE a Friday? We have been so trained all of our lives to celebrate Fridays. The end of the work week for most, the start of the weekend. Time to take a big breathe and let the stress of the week leave our body. Here come those two short days that seem to rejuvenate our minds and put smiles on our faces again, making us ready to do it all over again next week! Some of us will be lucky to carve out some scrapbooking time this weekend! Some of us would LOVE to carve out some time in Karen Hach’s creative space! Come take a peek! I have attached some photos of my creative space, which is sometimes neat and tidy, and sometimes not!  I have put a lot of thought into designing this space, so obviously I would love to be featured! I…

Hope everyone had a great week! Lots of us are probably spending more time outside as the days get nicer and our gardens call on our time! Why not take a short break and take a peek into Janet Aubut craft room! Having grown up as an “Air Force Brat”, I understand Janet’s want for colour…military homes can be pretty stark at times but they provide homes for thousands of wonderful families who give service to our country! This is where I create. My husband just retired from the military three years ago. We have always lived in military housing. Last year we bought our first house. I am very proud of my room because it is mine and I can finally do as I want with it! Our children are now grown so the spare room is my room to do as please. I painted the walls green, it…

How did we get to Friday again? It must be a sign I’m getting older, because it flew by! This week Alison Krogsgaard is kind enough to let us into her busy space. I think it must be heartbeat of her home as it multi tasks as an office, scrap room & craft room for her twins! Alison has used her space very well to accommodate the needs of each “hat” this room wears! Enjoy the tour! I’ve recently been organizing and purging my craft haven. As a result; I’ve made enough space along one wall to put a small table and chairs for my girls to color and create at the same time as their mama. My scrap room does triple duty as my scrap room, the girls’ craft room and it is also our home office. Everything is stored accordingly. Here’s a picture of the entire room,…

Here we are again…FRIDAY! The weekend is just around the corner, sun is supposed to shine, the temperatures are rising, the days are longer…it does the soul good! It also means it time again for WHERE YOU CREATE! This week I have a wonderful space to share with lots of eye candy! Take your time and look at each picture. Left to right, up & down. There is a TON of inspiration here. Ideas for storage and decorating. Catherine has puts lots of heart and soul into this creative space, I LOVE her attention to detail. Tissue handy??? Prepare to drool! Hi my name is Catherine Rosengren and I live in Peace River, Alberta. I share a large space (actually the entire third level of our rented side split home) with my boys. The half craft room, half playroom works perfect for us as we get to “play” together.…

Happy May! As hardy Canucks we survived a tough April! I hope April snow, does not bring May showers which will make us wait until June for flowers! I really could use them now…or very soon! I suspect we have seen the last of winter weather, on to brighter, warmer days! One good sign is the birds are singing! In Edmonton that means at 4:30 am!  Today we’ll visit Kim Boyd-Young’s creative space! She has done a great job of keeping things organized and efficiently reduced packaging to increase storage space!   Here are some pictures of my scrapbook room; it was recently tidied, but already has bits and pieces of some new layouts in the works.  In the first pictures, you can see an old bookshelf given to me by a friend, that’s where I keep my Cricut cartridges, stamps and other miscellaneous crafting items.  Over Christmas I turned…

WHERE YOU CREATE truly is all about YOUR spaces! We love getting your emails sharing your creative spaces. We get to take a peek inside your house, we’re like the nosy neighbour who wants to see where you gather inspiration for all your gorgeous scrapbook layouts, cards, and journals…the list go on! I think it’s human nature to be curious about others. Sometimes we are looking for decorating ideas, storage ideas, how to work in small spaces or maybe we just dream of a space to call our own! Regardless of why we choose to link to the blog post that shares YOUR creative spare…first and foremost THANKS for letting us in! I know I personally love to see it all. I especially like to see how you store and organize things…when I come away with an idea I can use in my own space, I feel like I have…

Hope everyone is having a great week! Spring is finally finding most of us, though one of our Instagram friends shared a picture from yesterday that had way too much snow still! Let’s all blow off some hot air this week and make the snow go away!  There will be lots of warm fuzzies at Scrapfest if you visit our booth! The Canadian Scrapbooker team can be recognized by their big smiles and laughter! Always lots of laughter! If you aren’t lucky enough to be in Kitchener, Ontario for Scrapfest, come join us on the blog to visit Janley Holeha’s scrap room! I can see myself sitting at her desk with a big cup of coffee, enjoying the view and getting very inspired to create. Hello! I just wanted to share my craft space that my little girl and I enjoy so much.  When I started reading the ‘Where…
