Where You Create

Category

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…

Last week found my life crazy busy with no time to get you a craft space to peek into. So sorry to those who check in every week to see who’s creative space we are sharing! This week however we have a great before/after version of a craft room shared by Kim Veveers. We are lucky that she took pictures at both ends of her renovation so we can see all she has done! The before pictures show a wonderful space, but I love the changes she made. It is a lovely, bright space that I could easily spend hours of my time! Hi Kim  I thought I would share my craft room with you and your readers. My husband and I worked on it last spring and I was very pleased with the results.  The room was given a complete overhaul; getting rid of furniture,…

According to the calendar, Spring HAS arrived! Many of us across Canada would beg to differ! We look out our windows and the sun and longer days tell us it has arrived; but the snow, cold temperatures and winter clothes tell us a different story! Hang in; I am confident it will come. On the bright side it gives us more time to enjoy our creative spaces without the guilt of knowing we should be outside soaking up the sun!  One again we are heading south [maybe in hopes of warmer weather?] to Illinois! I checked…it’s 8C there today…warmer than WE are, but not by much! Valerie Ward is sharing her space!  I transformed my Dining Room into a Craft Room when I got kicked out of my awesome space in our basement a year ago (my pre-teen son really needed his own pad). This is my space…

Today we are going to visit a neighbour from the south. I LOVE that we are finding new friends all over the globe and think it’s important to welcome them with open arms! Let’s give a great, big Canadian HELLO {eh?} to Heather Thompson! Off we go to Bloomer {love the name!}, Wisconsin to check out her great craft room! May I just add that ANY husband that thinks their wife’s craft room is TOO SMALL is a keeper! {just sayin!} My name is Heather Thompson. I am a RN by night and a mother by day. I am a mother of two young children; Maksim – my 4 year old, little guy and Olivia – my very creative 5 year old. We live in Bloomer, Wisconsin in an old farm house. I finally got my room now that the kids are old enough to sleep upstairs. I inherited their…

This week we’re heading to Ontario to visit Karrie Sweet’s craft room! I LOVE that she has just “found” us and has so quickly decided to share with us! It appears from her pictures that her craft room is FULL, just like her life! Look closely at all the storage ideas she shares, and of course check out how adorable her cat is! I stumbled across your site, and am so happy to have done so!  I didn’t even know there was a Canadian Scrapbooking Magazine; though I did know there were lots of wonderfully talented Canadian ladies. I have always enjoyed looking at other crafty spaces and would like to share mine. I live in Ontario, and am a full time receptionist.  My hubby and I enjoy travelling; motor-bikes, camping/boating, and I play beach and indoor volleyball. I started scrapping in 2001 when I made an album…

Well we are back again to Where You Create after missing last week! Five of us from Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine were fortunate enough to share an amazing weekend [last week] scrapbooking in Trochu, Alberta with some friends. It was a wonderful time filled with lots of laughs and our hosts at the St. Ann Ranch get 6 out of 5 stars! So while we were having so much fun, I missed sharing a creative space with you! This week we are heading to Saskatchewan! When I read that Jessica’s craft room was in her basement I was shocked…it is so bright and lovely! The colour of her walls makes me swoon! *LOVE* I also adore all of her personal touches on her walls and that “punch” of pink is ROCKIN! Enjoy!   Hi! Here are some photos of my scrap room. When we built our home…

Since Where you Create falls on Valentine’s Day this week, I thought a bit of pink was neccessray! Peggy Oliver’s room is just what was needed. Her room is filled with storage ideas and creativity…a spot for everything! Here is what she has to say about her creative space! Hello! My name is Peggy Oliver and I am a mother of three (22, 14 and 4yr old).  I live in the very rural, but beautiful town of Sooke, British Columbia. I am very blessed to live on an oceanfront acreage with a salmon bearing river on the property. The wildlife I see on a daily basis inspires my art.  I am a stay at home mom who loves mixed media, clay and paper. I also love to make Mini Albums.  I have a small bedroom as my workspace. When we moved in last December I had the walls painted pink.…
