Craft Room from Skitzo Leezra Studio

Greetings to all you Anonymous Craftaholics out there in the Intranet! Linda checked out my craft room pix on the Skitzo Leezra Studio blog and flickr photos and saw my old craft room but meanwhile, I was expanding and growing to a bigger craft room studio.

It began with a box under my bed and grew to an entire room dedicated to craft, but always with organization as key. With a handful of Lowe’s gift cards, a rough graph paper draft and a love of organization, my 10′ by 12′ craft room evolved to a 21′ by 14′ studio.

Plan your work, work your plan. It’s all about space planning.

I enjoy using things for other than their intended purpose. Metal gutters become ribbon storage and an old library card catalog holds embroidery floss and beads.

Using things for other than their intended purpose can provide creative storage solutions such as these old (antique?) enamelware refrigerator boxes glommed from my mom’s stash.

(Who doesn’t love a label maker?)

Thanks for checking out my craft space and here’s hoping you carve out your own happy place. Check back for more details and some how-tos.

Play that funky music, frog boy! We gotta get our craft on!

((HUGE thanks to Linda for inviting me to hang out with you!!!))

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    Okay, so…..fess up. Does it stay this neat???? :)
    Seriously, it looks well organized, spacious with great work surfaces.
    I especially think your use of the gutter for organizing ribbon spools was genious.
    Happy crafting.

    Absolutely wonderful. Can’t wait for our grown son (love him dearly but) to move out. His room will be my
    crafts room, the closet will hold the inflatable beds for the grandkids, and all my stuff will be readily available.

    How cool is that?!? Metal gutters – – – who woulda thought of that? I love it, and must admit, have a serious crush on those enamel boxes you’ve got there! :-) And I love, love, LOVE your bulletin board! So glad you visited Linda today and we got to meet you too!

    That looks awesome!! I viewed the slideshow and it’s all so neatly organzied……So, does it stay that way?
    Mine is neat until I’m working there and it’s a mess but I have to clean it all up when I’m done.

    Ha! “does it stay that way?”
    Wellllll, the honest answer is that it’s a new room so right now it is neat and organized. My old craft room was super neat until I reached fabric storage saturation which brings us back to the adage of “a place for everything and everything in its place”. Hopefully, this room has “growing space”. Plus, I have a touch of the anal retentive tendency.
    Thank you SO much for the nice words and checking out my photos and blog!!!
