Where I Create

I’m joining Karen at My Desert Cottage for her second annual “Where Bloggers Create” party this Saturday.

You can see my post from last year HERE (including a pic of the room mid-chaos).  Not much has changed, besides the awesome addition of my embroidery machine and a new TV.  Since I knew I would be having guests, I cleaned up a bit, and as you can see, there’s not much “creating” going on right now!
I’m lucky to have a dedicated office/craft room.  Here’s the view from the door as you walk in:
I made the window topper from an old bedskirt, you can see more details HERE.
These built-ins are really nice.  Plenty of storage and space for decorative accessories as well.
Here’s my sewing/crafting desk.  My mother-in-law helped me make the sewing machine quilt using this tutorial from Get Your Craft OnHere’s a tip…..the cheap vinyl placemats are great to protect your work surfaces.
IMG_1214Here is the sitting area of the room.  Those chairs are usually covered with whatever project I’m currently working on.IMG_1216
And my craft closet: IMG_1217
The right side stores supplies, finished projects, and projects in process. The left side stores paperwork, shipping supplies, and Etsy supplies. IMG_1218You can see some of my organizational tips and creations in these posts:
To see some of the projects I’ve worked on in this room, click on the “Sewing Projects” and “Craft Projects” links at the top of the page, or check out my Etsy store or Facebook page!  

Thanks for stopping by! I can’t wait to see others’ spaces.  Here are some other fun parties I’ll be linking up to:


 Favorite Things Friday_25fffbigbutton2<b>Join us every Friday...</b>



  1. Wow... what a great craft center! Joe bought us a Janome heavy duty sewing machine last year to fix a boat tarp and I have yet to touch it! I shy away because I haven't sewed since 7th grade! You put me to shame!


  2. I love the built-ins in the room...they look great and what wonderful storage! It's fun to take a peek into where all of your creating happens! Your room is a lot cleaner and more organized than mine.

  3. Love your built-ins, Christy, and having that window right there by your seat must be great! I envy you all that space and storage. It must be wonderful to have a dedicated room for your creating and office. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I am dreaming of the day I can have a space like that. Great job getting all that into one room too.

  5. LOVE the way you store your ribbons. I must do that! :)

  6. You have wonderful amounts of storage! Great space!

    Saw the ribbon organizer idea - that is a good one. I will have to check out others of yours!

  9. Wow Christy...I just love all that built-in it!

    Please come help me clean up mine. I'll be known throughout blogland as "that girl from Louisiana with the messy-est studio".

    Hopefully they'll get you and I mixed up and I can tell them that I'm the one that's the big LSU fan with the CLEAN AND NEAT studio! hahaha Do ya think they'll buy that?
