I adore that my studio is a space that has nothing boy related in it! I am the only girl in my family so my studio is my safe haven... Calgon take me away kinda space.
The best tip I can give is to clean up your space after each project before starting something new. This philosophy really helps me keep things nice and tidy. Storage is another huge detail in keeping your space organized. Before buying up all the storage you can find on sale, come up with a plan for how you work first. Your storage needs will reveal themselves as you take a look at your creative process.
Total plan! I purchased several books on craft spaces and took what I liked from each one. I also spent numerous hours online looking at all of the craft spaces I could find.
I do. My ATC (artist trading card) wall is especially precious to me. I have collected ATC's since I began crafting from crafters world wide. I made a wall dedicated to my favorite ones right in front of my desk. I look at them all the time. It reminds me just how far I have come in my crafting.
Wow, thanks Kristin for that amazing look at your gorgeous crafting room! And now it's time to get hopping!
