Where this woman creates...(15)


First let me tell everyone that I am first a mother of four wonderful children ages 8, 5,3,and 17 months. My DH and I moved into our home 20 months ago and my craft room is still in progress. I am currently working on several fixtures to paint for this room to do one last fluffing of the fixtures. 
I also need to apologize for the grainy photos since my phone is what I used since the fancy camera lens is getting repaired 

My craft room is in the finished part of our basement to our house since I could not fit my fixtures into any other room ...It was very generous for DH to let me have the 20x20 space since the last room I had was 10x11. 
Here is my inspiration board when you come down the stairs. 

 I love to display the swaps I participate in. 

My very first banner...

 I have a small thing for vintage 

 This is how I organize my glimmer mist, paints and punches. This over the door organizer from the container store is fabulous.

 My plate wall that is still being added to I have about 6 plates on the flour waiting to be mounted by DH.
 My sewing station/ computer table . 

One corner for trims.Also Goldie has her current home here.

This hutch was a favorite find from MO. It stores my shipping supplies and vintage collections. I have a small problem and love vintage mercury glass strands.

My two favorite finds and aqua

These are some more trims that I currently have carded. I also have Pinkie my petite dress form here.

 I use two of my favorite jewelry boxes to permanently display some buttons.

I love vintage hankies so why not use them for a valance. 

My display shelf for my swaps and more vintage love.

Another shelf for flowers and buttons.

My favorite cabinet from Home Decorators with a vintage shelf on top.

 I use it to organize all sorts of goodies. 

The drawers are deep and perfect like a vintage printers cabinet but without the smell I found with the real thing. Very important if you suffer from Shop-a-holicism. 

 My favorite cart.

My daughters craft table and shelf. 

A three tier caddy I made from three serving trays and candle sticks. 

A cupcake caddy to organize my bits.

I want to thank Karen for setting up this event each year and pushing me to clean my room. Although I have a ways to go until it is just the way I need it.

I have to tell you, I jumped right out of my chair to find an old folding shutter I had.. left over from its mate that was used for another project.. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your inspiration shutters and all I know is that my silly ol' calendar is coming down right away, and my shutter is going up in its place!!!! (0; So, I THANK YOU for the idea! I also really liked how you made use of old jewelry boxes! I buy them if ever, whenever I find them. I just LOVE them!.. Thank you for sharing your creative space! I really enjoyed my stop here today! ~tina

Love it all!!! I've got the same size place, plus a closed in patio.....I do love all the space, but by next year I have to downsize as we'll be moving to smaller quarters. Such is the life when you get older and can't care for so much stuff anymore! Beautiful space!


Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

What a great space you've created for yourself, Tabitha! I love everything that you have on display. I'd love to take some time and just go through your trims. Love the way you sorted your buttons. It looks like you spend some wonderful creative time in this space!

Thanks so much for sharing your space, I had a blast drooling over every last bit.

Patty Antle said...

What a fabulous creative space, Tabitha! I love the inspiration board and the way you used the jewelry boxes. I saw someone use a tool chest for organization which I thought was a great idea too. Nice to meet you and I am so excited about the Sweethearts on the Home Front coming up. :)

Patty Antle said...

I came back to see your jewelry boxes and buttons. I'll probably be back again and again to get more inspiration from you. :)
