Craft Room Tour & Craft Storage Ideas

I have never given a craft room tour of my studio, mostly because I feel like I needed to make it look perfect, but in reality who's crafty space is perfect?  So heck with it, let me show ya the real crafty space I work in, mess and all!!


Here is a video tour of my crafty room and a few fun storage ideas!!!


My craft space is a work on progress, here is my desk with a few extra packages stacked on top - fun happy mail from my card swaps!!


On my desk I store a ton of my crafting tools in various containers.  My current favorite is a set of tins I decorated.  Check out the video.



One my old favorites is a storage container I have had on my desk for the last 2 years that I decorated the outside of a long time ago in one of my first videos.  Just look how much it holds!!!




I loved the storage units I have around the room.  The big one is my Ikea wall unit.  It stores all the drawers, some are built in (the white and black) and some are also removable (the red units).  


I have a few extra storage units above and around my computer desk.  I have some Deflecto storage containers such as the rotating one.  Here it is double stacked from when I first put it together filled with various trims, mesh, burlap and, other fun crafty supplies!

Here is the video on how I put this together!



I have a tilt bin behind my computer monitor that stores some of my extra inks.  Here is a video on how I put it together.



I also have a tilt bin unit above my computer desk for a ton of my trims and ribbons.  It looked super clean and organized when I first put it in.  It is still super functional and completely as organized as it was when I did it over a year ago!


Here is a video on how I organized my ribbons and trims and then also stored them into the tilt bins.


My room is organized for me to find things.  Some things are super organized, some are a cluttered mess, but it works for me!!  I have a small space to work in (10x10) and one whole wall is a window, which I love for the natural light and I get to look outside and see the world and nature around me.  I get to see my kids outside playing, the sunny days, the rain, and even snow on some rare occasions.  I love the saying a messy desk means you have a creative mind, well just take a look at my normal desk!



So there is my crafty room, my oasis for my creative mind, my little section of the house for where I create!!  Now head on over to see some other amazing crafty spaces and craft rooms!!  Angie Holden from The Country Cottage Chic is hosting a week long series of various craft rooms and tour and I am on the list for today!!  Check out the rest of them by clicking HERE or click on the picture below!!

Quick and Easy Flower Gift Jar

Need a quick and easy little gift container that you can make to give to family and friends?  Check out this super simple idea using a small mason jar and Rinea foiled paper as a flower bow for that special someone in your life!



Here is a video showing how make this cute little gift jar!



The flowers on the tops of the jars are so easy to make with the Rinea foiled paper and the rolled star dies (just one more use for these fun dies).  Check the video for how to make these cute flowers.  I made them in a couple of colors.  I decided that the pink one should go on the jar since it is so close to Valentine's Day this can be a perfect gift for a loved one!!


I also made on is purple tones, and truly I am not sure which one I like better!!!



I placed some little candies in the jar, well actually chocolates since I am a chocolate nut, and yes I had a couple myself....shhh don't tell anyone!  I also took a couple of strips of the foiled paper to wrap the jar to make it look more like a present!!  I glued everything together with Helmar Craft glue, it dries fast and holds everything in place wonderfully!



What would you put in your little gift jar?

How to add Flair to a Button

I got some amazing buttons from Fun Buttons to pass out during Creativation 2018 as a fun little giveaway to my crafty friends at the show, but I wanted to add a little flair to these cute buttons, so I came up with a fun idea, add a circle around it!  


These buttons were so cute, but when I passed them out they did not have my name or the Fun Buttons company name on them, so I made a personal flair circle around it as a business card!  Check out the video on how I made them!



The buttons started out super cute, and the saying on them is adorable!  Just take a look.



These came from an amazing company Fun Buttons, they have so many types of buttons to pick from.  Make sure to check them out!



I made the template for the paper behind the button in Photoshop (it took a few tries to get it just the right size) and I then printed them out on a thick cardstock.


I then used my Xyron Creativae Station Double Sided Laminate to turn the entire sheet into a durable surface and die cut out all 75 circles.  The holes in the template were to guide me as to where to punch out the holes for the button to go in.  Here is a picture of the back of the button.



My dad was actually visiting my at the time and did the amazing job of hole punched out 75 back pieces for each button and also added the button to each circle saving me a ton of time!!  I now had a cute button with my name and the company name on it to pass out to my friends at the show!!  


Here are some of the pictures of a few of my crafty friends who got the buttons, can you spot the button on the lanyards?










Did you spot any of the buttons?  Thanks so all my amazing crafty friends you all rock and thanks so much to Fun Buttons for your cute buttons to pass out to everyone!!
