Where do you create? Are you fortunate enough to have your own craft space dedicated to your hobby? I am and it took many years to find out what I needed versus what I like. My craft space has changed over the years; I have changed furniture and even the room! But I finally planted roots in one of the bedrooms in my house and was ready to change up the space to meet my needs.
My scrapbooking style has evolved over the years – I have gone from making 12×12 albums, to mini albums, to cards, to planning. I’ve covered about every paper trend over the years. What I have come to realize is that what is important to me when I am creating is organization. When my things are organized, I am an efficient crafter. When designing this part of my room, I went for organization and versatility. The four containers are separated by theme. One is letters or fonts, one is travel products, the next is dies, and the fourth is miscellaneous stamps. I also house my paper trimmer and my laminator on that shelf in the back of my containers.
I am also a stander! Any other “stander crafter” out there? What the heck is that, you ask? Well, it is a crafter that stands while they create. I knew I would work best with a counter height table. Luckily I am not very tall so this table works like a charm! The two shelves hold my containers. I have them organized by stamps and dies on the top shelf. The bottom shelf on the left houses two white containers. One of them holds my Copic markers in the back and all my Disney-themed items in front. The other one contains all my Harry Potter-themed items. Those are the two subjects I work most with. I have three Cabodoodles boxes. Does anybody remember those from the 80’s? Yep, those! I love mine! I put all my planner items in them when I need to go somewhere. They are my travel craft boxes and they work brilliantly.
I picked this wall for this particular station in my room for the natural light I get throughout the day. This is just one section of my room, I have three other stations as well! Do you want to see them? Follow along and I will report on all the different areas and why they work so well for me. You can also see Instagram stories of my space if you follow along on Instagram under Tina Keyner.
