My Little Corner of Heaven on Earth

So, as every crafter knows - the place where one creates is the most magical of lands, a haven, a sanctuary.  Well I thought you all should see mine, because I love looking at other people's spaces.  I spent all weekend cleaning between my naps and only when the cold medicine was in full force.  I pulled everything out on the floor - sorted it into appropriate categories and then placed it all back neatly on the table.

So here it is:

I may eventually do a video tour, but this is the main part of the room.  My amazing uncle built the table for my Grandfather - I then inherited the table after he passed.  I have a whole post on my Grandfather and his influence on my crafty nature - here.  So this table is very special to me.  Now I made some additions - like all of the white cabinets (gotta love Target)  And the white shelf that goes over both of the towers to hold even more stuff.

I made this slide show for you to enjoy (which I found out after all that work that it doesn't play here on the blog - so I'll have it open in a new tab for you - and it repeats, so if you see the whole table like you do above, then its over :-) ):

If you would like a video tour - I'd be happy to do one - it just means that I need to clean the other side of the room :-)

For tomorrow you'll get to meet Seifer the Cat! - Until then.


  1. Love your space! You have inspired me to show mine - when I get it a little more neat and tidy that is! :o)

  2. I can't tell you how jealous I am of you!! You lucky lucky thing! My craft room is a mess! Perhaps you can come and do mine?!!

    Thx for visiting my blog and your sweet comment!

  3. What a great space and oh so organized,love it. How special to have your Grandfather's desk, that is so wonderful.

  4. What a great, creative space! Great layout you shared about your Grandpa, too. How great that you have his desk to continue to celebrate his crafty nature. I would love to show my room, too...but like the others above me, I need to get it cleaned up first. Thanks for sharing! :)

  5. You have a wonderful craft room, and so nicely organized. The table is just beautiful, something to cherish for sure. Thanks for sharing your space!

  6. What a great work space! Wanna come organize mine? I could certainly use your attention to detail~!

  7. Love the sentimental aspect of your space...your grandfather's table and all the photos in front of you! I like to see my people while crafting too!

    Hope you are feeling better! :)
