Hello and Happy Easter to everyone who will be celebrating the holiday this weekend! Does anyone else find it hard to believe we are already half way through April! Mother Nature has given a few glimpses of spring…then takes it away! Here’s hoping she is in a good mood this weekend! Today we are sharing a panoramic view of Sharon Coleman’s lovely creative space! I am loving her pops of red & teal; as well as all the lovely art hung on her walls! Here’s what Sharon has to say about her space: Hi! I am a 60-year-old who thought my days of creating were behind me, until about 5 years ago! My husband lost his Job and we moved to another state. Drawing, painting, bible journaling and more have become such a GREAT outlet for me.  In May of 2015, our youngest of 5 children got married and we…

So? Are you wearing any green today? Will you be drinking any green beer? Will someone kiss you just because you’re Irish? Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! So much to celebrate on this day even if you aren’t Irish, because we are just three more sleeps until the start of spring…winter is almost behind us; or at least that is what my brain thinks! The days are brighter and whatever snow comes now, shouldn’t last long…we’ve got this! Time to get to business! We are thrilled to share Joanne McClintock’s creative space today. You will love her organized space! Hi Kim. I thought I would share my craft space today. I’m quite proud of it; but it is and will always be, a work in progress. I try to add objects that inspire me, so it is ever changing. My fabulous hubby agreed to move our eldest son downstairs so I…

Hello and Happy Friday! Kim here today with a Friday post. I enjoy these Friday blog posts; Jackie gives me this wonderful forum to share with you. Over the next 12 months we’ll mix it up with what we like to call CSM Spotlights or Where You Create.  Today I’d like to share the creative space of Ineke Bruggeman. Ineke shared this email with me last summer and I’m happy to have the opportunity to share her space with you. I will make an educated guess that Ineke is from the Netherlands, please correct me if I am wrong! “Hi Kim, I would like to show you my scrap room, or as my family says “Scrapadise”! About 2 months ago [Spring 2016], we started redecorating my room, and this is now how it looks. We have created a lot of space in my room. It is light and I love…

Happy Friday! February is well under way which gets us closer to March…brighter days and a sense that spring is on its way! I am feeling the need for warmth and vitamin D! Hope everyone is weathering their winter well; let’s raise our glass to our friends in the Maritimes who are once again getting so much snow! You guys are working out your shovels way too often! Today’s “Where You Create” takes us to Bree Tetz’s home where she shares her bright small space! I recently redesigned my studio. I chose cupboards that would let me see all my goodies and maximize my small space.  I have a cupboard for scrapbooking and mixed media, and another for my jewellery making. I added a small cube for my silhouette and die cutting machine. The large desk in front of the windows finishes it off perfectly. Bree! Thanks so much for…

Happy December! How did we get to the 11th already??? Less than two more weeks and we get to Winter Solstice…I crave the daylight coming back to us! Those celebrating Christmas are surely getting organized and decorating for the season, I love driving home and seeing all the lights! To our Jewish readers, I hope your Hanukkah celebrations were wonderful! ‘Tis the  season of celebration for so many of us…busy, busy times! I hope you can take a moment to quiet your schedule and join us with another creative space share! Jamie Hansen is opening her doors for us to peek  inside! My space started to come to life about 8 years ago as my husband and I started our log home building journey. It was mentioned once along the way that the space would be the master bedroom; and with a loud laugh and a turn of the…

Happy Friday! Look at us already almost half way through November. Despite our darker days, time seems to speed up from now until New Year’s Day! Funny to think time stopped as a child waiting for Christmas to come…as a parent I’d LOVE to cash in a few extra bonus days just to get things ready! Before our brains start working overtime…let’s take some time to visit a gorgeous creative space! Sharon Colpitts has been kind enough to let us in; you are going to love her bright space! I wanted to show you where I create in my home.    After my kids moved out, I took over the “Great Room” space on our top floor.  It’s not quite big enough to fit all my “stuff” but it’s perfect for most things I use, it’s bright and open and it’s all mine.  I have been scrapbooking for about…

It’s the Friday before Halloween! Are your ghouls and goblins ready? Isn’t it wonderful when Halloween falls on the weekend? Less stress and so much more fun for everyone! This week we are taking WHERE YOU CREATE to the Netherlands! I love when our international friends share with us! Let’s all THANK Margo for letting us into her creative space! “Dank u voor ons te laten in uw creatieve ruimte”! Through the magic of an online translator…I hope we got that right…I think Margo’s English is much better than my Dutch! Hi I am Margo Feijen; I live in the small village of Nederweert in the Netherlands. Five years ago I started making cards and scrapbooks. Now; five years later I have my own scraproom. The room…I painted in pink and black with a wooden floor. I now have everything clear and I get so much joy from scrapbooking. Pease see my blog  …

Here we are…October! The seasons have most definitely changed. Though it saddens me that winter follows so quickly, I adore this time of year…the colours, the crispness of the air, cozy sweaters and scarves; not to mention Thanksgiving and Halloween! Embrace this awesome month and spend some time creating! This week we are in Candace Bernier’s craft room. A gorgeous space in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan! I love your magazine; every time I see it in the drugstore I grab a copy!  I hosted a wedding shower a while back and cleaned my scrapbook room from top to bottom; invariably a guest would want to see it. We built our house several years ago. I was lucky enough to be able to customize a room to suit my scrapbooking and painting needs.  My favourite part is the two big windows; which let in so much natural light. The wall unit was custom built,…

Happy Easter to those celebrating! Easter is always a sure sign of spring, even when it comes as early as this year. I hope everyone plans to enjoy their long weekend, and gets to spend time with friends and family! Though your days may be busy with entertaining and Easter commitments, please take a few minutes to enjoy Terrie Moar’s wonderful creative space! I am a mother of 4 and grandmother of 5. Now that all of my children are in their own homes, I have a room for myself to scrapbook, craft and make cards. We renovated our home in 2014 and my craft room was the second room to be done. I LOVE IT!!! It’s about 10 x 17 and every space is used to its maximum. I love having the tall table in the middle of the room. I can stand or sit. I have a…
