Continue on with my Craft Room tour…
Photo Light Box!
Now, remember, I also wanted a photo light box for taking great photos and videos. I'm not entirely finished with this set up. So far I've built a frame with PCV pipe and added white fabric and utility lights. I'd like to refine it a little bit.. but it's functional for now.
I'll show you more details on this area after I finish it.
I've got a second area for all the little embellishments and extras a project might need. This cabinet/shelf needs a paint job too.. but I did go through and organize all the little jars and bottles. Such a happy space….
There are so many fun little areas in this space. The carpet is clean (although my vacuum broke – ut oh!). I love so much about my revived creative space. Sometimes I wish it was a pretty finished room with painted walls and a real ceiling. I'd love all matching cabinets and furniture… but then there wouldn't be as much to talk about and I'd have to show you the inside of all the not-yet-organized cabinets. I love that I have a ton of room to work with, so if the trade off is not-magazine ready spaces… for now I'm ok with it.Why yes, that is a giant paint brush… I have a giant pencil too. Right next to this area I have all kinds of things just to make the space happy and to remind me of memories that make me happy. Here's a little peek…
A few of the extra crafty things you can see…
The signs I doodled as part of a display for my exhibit at the Craft and Hobby Association Trade show aka CHA. The stack of drawers is full of all kinds of materials, most of which I can use with my Cricut… paper, iron on vinyl, stickers, shrinky dink plastic, etc. I have a basket full of all kinds of tools – I love my crop-a-diles!. On the shelf are some things I've made and a little Willow Angel sitting on a stone. You can also see a bunch of lanyards from conferences I've been to, most this year… but some dating back to my first show – Cafepress Connect in 2005. I like to keep the lanyards and badges – many have mini button pins and fun comments on them. Finally, There is an essential oils diffuser filled with peppermint, orange and bergamot oils. It's like filling the air with creative magic and clean at the same time…. yum!
So that's the new and improve craft room in a nutshell. There's a few areas I didn't show you… storage for things I buy to repurpose. A few little extra fun things I added in like a little fairy door hidden by some of the supplies. Extra nic-nacks and fun decor pieces I've added throughout the room. I promise to share them later in another post. I have a few more (15+) boxes to sort through.. there will be plenty to share.
My new desk is ready for some doodling!
And this is the view from my window.. all day long I can gaze out at the fields and the blue Colorado sky!
But wait, there's more craft room tour!
I do most of my daily work in a cleaned up work corner in my kitchen. Continue reading to see my computer and Cricut work space.
