Magali here today to share my crafty space with you and
I have found a mantra made for me and my craft space!
Each time I want to show my craft space, I am a little anxious about what people could think (especially the ultra extremely organized crafters),
but we are all different, aren’t we?
And even if my space is always (or nearly always) a mess, I must admit that I need it.
Most of the time, I lose things when I try to organized my stuff and I tend to feel very inspired when I have embellishments, papers and all sorts of things all over my table. I love creating several pages with a same embellishment set.
But today, I’ll try to show you how a
messy creative person organizes her space.
Don’t be surprised, I was feeling so ashamed
that I took the mess out of the room before taking the photos!
(keep in mind that this would have been too hard for organized people eyes).
I recently moved in a new room of my basement, as we broke down a wall in the basement to create a large family room. As I wanted to keep a closed room (in which kids cannot come alone), I’ve decided to move into another room of the basement. In the previous craft room, I had a large table with shelves on the wall (all built especially for the space by my lovely sister). The dimension of my new room are a little different so the table and the shelves are not exactly made for the space
but I continue to love this large white table with the shelves on the wall. This is also why we can now see the connection between both part of the table.
On the picture below, you can see half the length of the table.
I always work on the pink mat.
I have all my inks on a little carousel. This is always super easy to grab the colour I need.
And as I love to have everything on hands, needless to say that my favourite organization tool is this Clip It Up. I can easily see every embellishment sets I have and it’s placed in the corner of my table, right in front of my working space (on the right on the below picture).
Right beside this carousel, you can see my Clique kits. I keep them separated by kit in large plastic transparent bags!
On the right side of my mat, I have my paper collections
and all my tools in a big white carousel too!
As you can see, all my papers are in a big plastic box
(that you can find in an hardware store). I place the papers by colour and when new collections arrive, I place them in the front, by collection.
At the opposite part of my table, I have made a giant box for my letters.
I love letters, so I have tons and tons of them in every colour. A few months ago, I was not able to organize them anymore, so I decided to gather them all in the same box!
(the box is around 2 1/2 feet long). In that box, I organized my letters by colour.
As you can see on the picture below (sorry, there is so much light coming from the window, that it was hard to take a proper photo), I have red pots from IKEA over my table, where I place my staplers and my date stamps).
Under the table, I have large racks with drawer boxes! I absolutely love these drawers.
I place the products for my different DT teams, my ribbons and laces, my white and black papers, my paper trims, lots of stamps, etc.
And I am not sure if you noticed it earlier but I have a kneeling chair. I sit all day long in a traditional office swivel-chair, so I need to give rest to my back when I scrapbook.
That’s why I’ve opted for this chair and I love it!
I am a punch lovers, so I have all of them ready to use.
Some are on a rail (thanks IKEA again!). I love that I can see them very quickly.
The rest of my punches are in the lower stage of my Raskog cart (yes, I have one too, but you won’t see it, as I had not the time to decide what to place
in it yet and it’s nearly empty).
Right behind me, there is this shelf. This is newly installed so I have not a lot of things in it (and that’s why it seems so organized!).
At the top, I have my Big Shot, with the dies.
Below are my Project Life cards in the plastic box.
The wicker baskets are still empty (I’ll certainly place my die cuts in them).
The plastic box at the bottom is a box where I put all my tiny paper trims.
I hope you enjoyed the Tour! 🙂
