Hello fellow crafters! This is Jess from Craftiness is not Optional and this is my crafty space. Welcome.
My name is Jess, and I blog at Craftiness is not Optional. I loved Linda’s idea of showing off our crafty spaces, so I was obviously thrilled when she asked me to participate! I also love to see the “behind the scenes” if you will, of other bloggers. Hope you do too! Here we go!
I love my little “inspiration” board, made with twine and nails. Nothing unique or fancy, just a fun place to fill with pictures, magazine pictures, drawings by my daughters, and supplies I want to use. The DIY white board was gifted to me by my sis. You can also read about the wooden sign in that same post. ;)
These wire drawers are full of my items to refashion…looks like I need to hop to on some refashioning projects! ;) That’s my Silhouette in her pretty dust cover on top!
Here’s my sewing table with my ironing board, cutting mat, sewing machine, fabric weights, wrist pincushion, table pincushion, bowl for different machine foots, garbage/string collector, and an Amy Butler organizing thing I found at Michaels. This houses my needles, bobbins, hot glue gun, fabric glue, pins, size tags, etc.
I have my scissors, turning tools, rotary cutter, fabric pencils, etc, gathered in this cool little vase my brother made in his pottery class. He was going to just throw this away! I love it.
Thread. Not much to say about that, is there?
On this little wooden…thing piece of furniture, I have some notions in a basket (bias tape, piping, zippers) and then those other piles are projects to finish.
Underneath them is where I store my vintage sheets, interfacing, freezer paper, heat n’ bond, ironing stuff, onesies, and some spray paint.
My (awesome) hubby got me those metal ribbon spools ages ago from his work, they used to hold spools of wire, but are perfect for ribbon.
