Hi friends! March is National Craft Month and you know I love all things handmade and crafty so I am super excited about celebrating something I am so passionate about!! I always say I am a creative person at heart and it’s because the art of creating really does seep into most everything I do! Whether it is working on my product line for Crate Paper, making scrapbook pages and mini albums, taking photos, planning a birthday party or designing and decorating our home… I truly do love all things creative! And I literally can’t help but put my creative touch on everything! Even the way I store and organize things in my craft room! I like to make it functional but of course it has to be cute at the same time. And the creative aspect of styling it all to make it look pretty is something I find myself doing all the time. It’s half the fun I think! I especially love keeping new products and/or new treasures from the thrift store out in the open and on display like this. Not only does it make my studio a happy place for me to be in, but I am also more likely to use things that I can see!If you’ve been in my home, you know I am a collector of cake plates. I literally can’t get enough! They are everywhere haha! One thing I love most about them is that they are great for displays and for lifting things you want to display to different heights. They also make for super cute storage because you can keep your current favorite crafting supplies on them and it all looks fabulously styled at the same time… kind of like a store display, and who doesn’t love that! While at the Craft & Hobby Creativation trade show last month, I shared all the new Crate Paper storage products on my insta stories. (The cake plates are pictured above.) This collection of cute organization and storage products was a BIG hit at the show! Everyone wanted to know where and when they could get it all!! I mean, who doesn’t love to make the space they work in pretty and functional at the same time! I got my hands on some of these darling new storage products and they fit in perfectly with everything else I already had!How cute and fabulous are these mint green berry baskets! I use them for storing anything from square instagram photos to ribbon, yarn tassels, you name it!You might have noticed that this is only part of my craft room… mainly because I love to take a ton of photos and it’s too much to share the whole room in one post! This area is one of my favorites in the room so I decided to share it first! I scored this regency style bamboo campaign dresser off Craigslist and it functions so well because it adds lots of storage in the drawers. On top I keep a rotating mix of products that I use for scrapbooking and crafting and also props I use for styling pretty photos when we release new product lines etc. I also keep things I mentioned before on here that double as storage items but also look pretty at the same time – cake plates, vintage bowls, candy dishes, milk glass plates etc. Oh and I typically have a number of my current favorite thrifted art leaning here as well…. things I am wanting to frame or things that just make me happy and inspired to have in here! I’m loving this mint paper rack organizer because it holds 12×12 papers! On it I keep the papers from my newest collection, along with recent scrapbook pages that I’ve created! I also keep all of my chipboard sticker sets on here because I use them a ton and I like to mix and match those from older collections. Once again it really makes it functional to have the papers and stickers I’m currently using the most right at my fingertips!Thanks for taking a peek inside my workspace! I will share more of the other areas soon. Also I’d love to hear what things you like to have in your craft room or workspace! Do you like to make it pretty too and keep things out on display or do you prefer to have everything tucked away? It’s fun to hear how others stay organized and inspired at the same time!!
