my craft room: Part 1

hey friends! happy wednesday to you! now that i have my very own ROOM dedicated to nothing other than the bliss of creating, i plan to make it a crafty heaven. i’m not even kidding you.  it is going to be ah*mazing! i am going to be posting several posts to show the progress and different projects i have planned for my space. but first, this is what arrived on my doorstep last thursday!

the original scrapbox
i got a couple items from The Original Scrapbox to help me organize my insane amount of crafting goodies. {which to davis’s dismay, seems to multiply almost daily…..} i am really excited about these boxes! davis is slaving away trying to assemble them. {did i ever tell you, i have the best hubby ever?! yes, that is a completely unbiased opinion. haha}

i’ll post my fabric and paint choices next week. nope, this craft room makeover isn’t happenin’ overnight. its going to take awhile before its done! and…. i plan to drag you along…. every step of the way! haha and i’m hoping you’ll help me with a few decisions too. because i’m rather indecisive. and you ladies always have such great ideas!! {just check out the Crafty Q&A session every friday night on Craftaholics Anonymous facebook page and you’ll see what i mean}

have a wonderful wednesday! i hope you cross off lots of items on your crafting To-Do list!


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! ♥

    Have fun!! Can’t wait to see your paint and fabric ideas. Craft rooms are the best! Setting up my room has been my favorite project during our renovation….so much that it is the first room we have finished in the whole house ;)

    How exciting. I can’t wait to see your room. I always seem to be reorganizing and changing
    things in my room … hopefully one day I’ll get it so it finished.

    Lucky Linda – a craft room that’s not a dining/guest/play/living room, too. I am green with envy! Perhaps it’s a shade you’d like to consider for your walls . . .

    I also bought a scrapbox for my house. My husband and son had a terrible time getting it put together! I hope you have better luck than we did. I still don’t have the table attached to mine, so I am using something I bought from IKEA. Can’t wait to see what you do with your space.

    Have fun creating your room! I’m already curious about the boxes.

    I’ll be following your posts closely, as I’m about to do a craft room myself, and want to make everything just right!
