come take a peek...


so i finally got around to somewhat re-organizing my creative/craft room area.
i seem to do this once a year and i've been kinda working on it the past month or so.  
this space is in a somewhat awkward area. it's located in the landing
of our 2nd floor overlooking the family room which we call the library. 
 it's actually quite cool because while the fam is downstairs and i'm creatively 
working i can still be part of their conversation and watching tv with them.
but i really have to be mindful of trying to tidy up after i make a big mess
because it's not like i can shut the doors or anything.

so here it is with a lot of purging, a little bit of organizing and a bit of decorating...
baskets of packing stuff, yarn, fabric, scrapbook paper...
a wall of my favorite photographs that i took...
bulletin board to pin business cards, happy notes, pics...
a few of my cameras...
shipping envelopes...
my jewelry tools...
this table overlooks the backyard...

and that's a wrap!
i hope you enjoyed the little tour of my spruced up and reorganized area.
happy friday friends!

Looks great...what a cool spot to have your space in. I like that you can be a part of what's still going on in the house.

Funny...I just blogged about my space yesterday! :-) I have a wire tiered basket similar to yours...they work great as organizers!!

Okay Alely, this is getting scary. I just wrote a post yesterday about organizing, I am posting it most likely on Monday...or some time next week!

(Love the pics by the way.)

I bet you're having eggs, toast and hash browns for breakfast tomorrow! Am I right, am I right? ;)

Such a cute space! It looks so neat and orderly. I can't wait until the day that I have my very own sewing room, rather than just the dining room table :)

I love it! What a nice bright room to have all to yourself. Well done my friend.

Oh wow your creative space looks great. I like that everything has their own little container. I really need to organise mine soon too.

I quite like that you are in an open area and can still hear your family talking.
