Happy Wednesday and welcome to Day 4 of Craft Room Inspiration week here on Craftaholics Anonymous! Today’s tour comes to you all the way from Norway! Here is Helle to show off her colorful craft room!
Hi, I`m Helle from Holyhelles Himmel (Heaven) in Norway.
I love color, adore cats, like to work out and I am a true pinterest junkie! I create stuff as cards, art work and scrapbooks on request and I also sell my cards in a local shop.
I can`t wait to show you guys my all white but still colorful craft nook!
I have a very kind boyfriend that actually thinks it`s cozy that I have my craft nook in our living room (amazing, I know!). To tie it in with the rest of our space, all my furniture is white (IKEA), but I have added a lot of color in my bits and pieces. I LOVE color!
Here is a close up, which includes my nosy cat, Apple.
I guess there`s no use hiding the fact that my desk is facing the TV… and the rest of the living room. I appreciate some company when I work.
I`ll show you some of my favorite pieces in my office:
The first pic is my Lego head. bright yellow! It contains it all. Second is my Erik drawer from IKEA. I love the deep drawers. Pic number 3 is showing two of my Blafre boxes (norwegian design). They are just to stinkin`cute! I need pretty things in my office, they inspire me!
I love being organized (with a bit of whimsy). Everything has it`s place and and the placing must be functional. This is how I store the most of my stamps, using MUJI boxes and cd covers (of course labeled with my dymo label maker which I can NOT live without)
The cd covers keep my stamps organized in categories and make them easy to store, while being protected from dust.
I organize my scrapbook paper using napkin holders dividers for the different colors and themes. That can remove a whole bunch of paper at the same time the rest of the paper falling over in the shelf (I hate that!).
For years (how sad is that?!) I had trouble finding a functional way to store my alphas. Finally I had a lightbulb moment and came up with turning my magazine racks on their backs! It keeps all the alphabet stickers in place while it`s easy to look through them, finding the ones I want and sliding them out.
I have some pictures in my shelves for two reasons. I like them (of course) and I use them to cover up the not so pretty stuff I use. I have made both door signs and cards using my Hama beads which is hiding behind my late cat Mia`s picture.
On my desk I keep the tools I use the most often, and I really, really love my big desk. Love my pink chair too!
That`s it from me and my colorful nook! Hope you all enjoyed the tour and will come visit me at Holyhelles Himmel. Have a great weekend!
Thanks for sharing, Helle! Love your fun pink chair. Make sure to visit Helle’s blog and say hi!
