A Peek at My Crafty Space + GIVEAWAY

Warning: this post may not portray me in the most realistic light.

My room never looks like it does in the following photo. I don't think there's ever a day when I don't have at least one project splayed out on the desk. But Imaginisce asked all the design team members to do a feature for their blog called i-Space and give you a little peek at where we create. And today it's my turn (a.k.a. time to clean things up!).

So here's a rare look at my very clean (for the moment) room:


Lots more photos and descriptions of my storage solutions are on the Imaginisce blog today, so hop over there and check it out.

GIVEAWAY

But while you're here, leave a comment below to win an Imaginisce prize package, including papers, embellishments and stamps from the Little Cutie line AND the very cool d-stress tool!

Hope you enjoy the tour!

You have such a beautiful space! And it looks so clean indeed, wish my scrapspace would look like that;)

Maria said...

Very nice!! you have some great storage areas!!

Angie said...

I love your room and love that the stripes have a sentimental value. WE are going to be moving into our new house in a couple of months and I know I am going to be sad to leave the big tree I had painted in my daughter's bedroom. (tear). Looks fabulous though! I am your newest follower!

Kate said...

Left a comment on the imaginisce blog about the beautiful clean white, very inspiring - I want to re-vamp my space now!!

Like I said before, I can only dream of a space like yours. I really want to redo my area and make it more organized and add storage, but it's hard when I have such a small, limited use of space. I do agree with you on the Michael's storage bins. They're so tempting. I use fish tackle boxes for my craft totes and storage. They can hold soooo much!

Donna Mullins said...

Love your space and it's always comforting to hear that I'm not the only one who sometimes gets into a creative frenzy!!! Lol thanks for sharing, and for the chance to win!

Regina aka Mrs. Ham said...

I love your space and the stripes on the wall. That work desk is great and so are your storage ideas (something I'm struggling with). I really love your i-rock storage container. I may have to buy one of those. Thanks for the peek into your space, and the chance to win that wonderful prize.

Hi Robyn! I love your space!! I would feel very inspired in a room like that! I love all of the modular pieces that you have, and I love how you store your stamps. I have mine in a bucket similiar to what you have where I just flip through them. I'm going to have to look into getting those sleeves!

DeniseP said...

This is very pretty. I have a decent scrap room, but it doesn't even compare to this. I can't wait until I can get an Expedit shelf (I bought a 2x2 for my son's room because I just had to have one somewhere in my house) for my office. Hopefully one day I can redo my closet and find the perfect spot for one. Love your space...it definitely inspires!

Kim said...

Love your room! Mine rarely looks neat and orderly either..so your not alone! LOL

Jamie said...

your room is super pretty! Im just now getting ready to decorate and finish up my craft room cuz we just moved into our new home last week so all of these craft spaces are really givin me inspiration! thanks so much for sharing your space.

What a wonderful crafting space you have. It looks beautiful !

deannaf said...

I love all the coordinating organizers! makes the room look really put together and pretty. My favorite tip is the twine in the jars. It looks so cute! like jars of candy!

loving3boys1girl said...

I love your room! I'm kicking myself for not taking a closer look at the Expedite storage. For some reason, I didn't think it would hold 12x12 paper holders!

I love getting to see other's scrap rooms. I always get such interesting ideas, but I'm super happy you confessed that it doesn't always look that clean. It makes me feel so much better about my own creative chaos!

Brett said...

Beautiful room! I love all the natural light you have!

st_mccall said...

Thank you for sharing your scrap space with us! Gives me lots of ideas for storage because for the first time I actually have a "room" that is all mine for my crafting and I have been struggling on how to organize! Thank you also for the chance to win a yummy prize!

Lucky Charms said...

I love your craft room, I could only wish that my scrap space looked so awesome, rather than substituting as our dining room from time to time!! Love the white and space! Thank you for the opportunity to win! I have dying to try the i-rock - I love bling!!

Elizabeth said...

Thanks for the look in. My son leaves for college in a month and his room is going to become my new scraproom. So I am looking for ideas:) http://visionsofpaper.blogspot.com/

Moira said...

I'm so jealous of your room. I'll definitely be stealing your I-Rock Kaboodle idea!

Becky said...

LOVE your space. I need a case for my irock like yours. love that

Renee VanEpps said...

Even though it may not portray you realistically (that was funny!), this is like a pictures of what scrapping in Heaven probably looks like! Seriously love the chunky white furniture and beautiful windows letting the glorious light shine in.. Just GORGEOUS!!!! Love the cool idea for the bakers twine! TFS that little tidbit and for this giveaway!

Katie said...

Hi! I love your scrap room, the window is fabulous. The pinstripes look so bright and cheerful, and its wonderful how you won't paint over them for sentimental reasons, I'm the same way!

I actually had a question - how did you get your vertical paper storage to fit in the expedit? I have the same bookshelf, and what seems to be the same paper storage - but mine won't fit inside!

Thank you for running this giveaway!

Kate Vickers said...

Wow! Beautiful space! I love how you organized your baker's twine in the jars. It works well and it's very pretty.

My Scrap Diary said...

Lol, I like how you cleaned your room for this photo op. I would have done the same. But i dont think its a bad as you say.
Love your room. It looks so bright and open. And yup loving that desk!
Thanks for the tips, especially the stamp storage tip. Im off to look for the Tim Holtz holders. They are going to be a great help in my teeny tiny area.
Thanks:)
