Finished Craft Room & a Giveaway to Celebrate

*** This Giveaway is now closed ***

I am so excited about finally getting my craft space in order.  We had chaos for 4 to 6 weeks as everything from the craft room was taken out, gone through and purged!! Unfortunately the living room suffered the most as all the stuff went there to wait until I figured out where I wanted everything to go back!! I took a class from Wendy Smedley and Aly Dosdall of Big Picture classes.  The class was called Organizing “Fun”damentals!! I have to admit that most of the process was fun!! I am so grateful to these two ladies and all the gals that supported each other in the gallery and on the message board.

So, are we ready to see the finished result?!?  This first pic is looking into my space from the small entryway.  My space is only about 6 ft by 11 ft!  I share half of a room with my daughter and we have put up two cupboards and a bookshelf to create a dividing wall from her space and mine!!

Here is where I create and make Beautiful Things to show others I care!!

This second picture is looking opposite this wall and my desk/work space.  I was able to purchase a 4 by 2 Expedit unit and for Christmas I had requested the 12 by 12 paper storage containers (all from Cropper Hopper) so this area came together very nicely and I finally have order and organization to all my paper!!

My new Expedit shelves, file cabinet, and Clip-It-Up!!

My favorite thing in this area of my space is my Colored Embellishment drawers – you can see them in the 5th square there!! Here is an up close photo:

Here is where I keep all my buttons, brads, and other embellishments by color.

This was so fun for me to organize! The two containers with scalloped circles are smaller bits.  The tiny one is glitter, and the bigger one is eyelets and etc that were just too small.  For each basket I weaved ribbon of that color into the slits in the baskets.  The baskets were all from the dollar store and that I had around.

I am really so very excited about this accomplishment.  Now I have a beautiful place to make beautiful things for others just to show them I care!!  And to celebrate that my Beautiful Space is done I am hosting a giveaway!!

I want to offer  a $20 gift certificate to a store of your choice to the winner! 

The store choice must be within my ability to get a gift certificate to!! :)

I am trying to increase my readership so there are more than one ways you can win:

  •  the first way is to leave me a comment ( that’s one entry)
  •  the second way is to refer someone to visit my blog (when they visit and mention that you referred them that’s another entry for you and one entry for them)
  •  the third way is to pin one of these images on Pinterest and link the pin’s url in a comment saying you did ( that’s the final way you can enter)

I will leave this contest open until Friday, March 21rst at 5:00 pm (MST)  and then I will post the winner the next morning (Sat, March 22nd)!!

Thanks so much for visiting and Have an Amazing, Beautiful Day!!

    Your space is tiny but looks very neat and organized. It’s an empowering feeling. My craft room has to be reasonably neat too, or I feel like I can’t work in it. Strangely enough, that is not the case in the rest of my house, or at work. I am a slob in those venues.

    Thanks, by the way, for stopping by my blog. Crashing my stash has been pretty fun so far. If I add your blog to my blogroll, does that count as a referral for the giveaway? :)

    Best,
    Kirsten

    Taunya, Happy card making in you super organized craft room. Thanks for sharing the details of how you organized your colored embellishments. It’s great the way you teach others how to make cards. Your “you light up my life” card is so cheerful. =) Thanks Penny Ward Ink for referring me to Taunya’s site.
