Craftroom Tour with Tips

By Aleksandra Mihelič


“Hi, dear Graphic 45 friends and fans :) This month it is my turn to share tour of my craft room with all of you. I’m very lucky to have my own private space, where I can create. My husband likes to call it “my hiding space”. I sometimes like to hide in here and run away from my kiddos. :D (psssst… don’t tell them). It’s not big, but it is my absolutely favourite place in our home, where I can relax, create, enjoy and just be myself! I hope you’ll like it, as much as do.



For the past half of year, I’m also a proud member of Lindy’s gang DT, so my collection of gorgeous colorful bottles is quite lovely. The look on these shelves full of colors make me happy even when “the skies are blue” :)



I love to look up from my desk, where I work, and see some of the projects I already made in the past. This gives me joy, motivation, and ideas for my new projects.


As you can see, I have most of the things arranged on the shelves and in the baskets. It’s a little bit more work with dusting, but if I don’t have my goodies at my sight, I usually won’t use them. I store all the Graphic 45 tags, policy envelopes, embellishments and ephemera cards in convenient baskets.



Tip: I store my washi tapes in a small flower pot. I love Graphic 45 washi tapes! They are perfect for use in mixed media projects!



Tip: I store some of my papers in a cute storage box. And I have the rest of the papers in my drawer, 12x12 papers on one side and paper pads on the other side.


I have all my Shadow, Matchbook, mixed media and ATC boxes in one of the bigger drawers, just waiting to be altered and dressed in gorgeous Graphic 45 papers.



And I have all my Graphic 45 Cardstock stickers, Banners, Die-cuts and Chipboards stashed in another one of the bigger drawers.


There is yet another drawer unit below my window and I have another selection of my craft projects displayed on it.



I absolutely loooove my paper and fabric flowers. I have lots of it stored in pots on or beside my desk and I have some of them still in packagings in the box and quite few of them also in one of the drawers. I can’t wait for Graphic 45 paper flowers to add to my collection.


Oooh and I love my laces…



Besides creating for fun and making DT projects, I also do a lot of “customized orders”, so my “cutting station” is one of the things that makes my work a lot easier. I also have a Cricut machine that I love to bits.



This is it! :) I hope you liked the glimpse of my workspace. It’s not finished… but it never is! Still adding to it on a weekly basis. :)


Enjoy your day and see you soon!


Hugs, Aleksandra

WOW what a Beautiful work space!! I never thought of storing all my washi tape or ribbons and lace in pots! That would make it a lot easier to shuffle around to choose the perfect one. I can hardly wait to have my own space to make my own. Just a lovely post!

Patti Henschen:
07/11/2018, 03:34:36 PM

Glenda Buster:

Love, love the seemingly endless display of completed projects among your collection of supplies to creat more ❤️. Agreed that supplies out of sight are easily forgotten and not used.

Martie Rollin:
07/11/2018, 04:16:55 PM

My goodness! I wouldn't know what to do with that many colors! Mixed media takes lots more "stuff" than I like to admit! Nice room!

We have just moved into another home and I have a whole room for myself. I really like how you are arrangement of your lovely bottles. I wish that I had as many as you do. I like the use of baskets and pots for the flowers too. I'm always having to find my several boxes for different kinds of flowers and they are so pretty at. Ellen from Phoenix

this is heaven!

Thanks so much Aleksandra! Perfect timing! I'm in the process of organizing my craft room and these are great ideas I will definitely use! Hugs back at ya! Robin Anderson

07/13/2018, 12:54:58 PM

It made me happy just to see your crafting space, Aleksandra. Thank you so much for letting us peek in and for sharing your organizational ideas. It's really hard to be creative when there's no sense of joy or peace - your space definitely has both. Happy hiding! ;->)

07/13/2018, 04:10:05 PM

So very pretty ..... love that you store paper flowers out in the open. That is my favorite go to item. GR45 is the absolute best !!

Anne McIntosh:
07/14/2018, 12:43:36 PM

WOW Alecksandra! How I miss having a separate room for my crafting. I am carving out a space in my living/dining rooms for my craft storage. Of course I don't have room for everything, so I ferry back and forth between my house and the storage shed. I love your work and I'm crazy about how organized your craft room is. I aspire to be like you!

Lynn Milewski:
07/15/2018, 12:40:39 AM

It looks like a lovely place to do some creating!

Carolyn Hines:
07/18/2018, 09:31:10 PM

What a magic place for you to escape the world! I'd love to have my flowers and laces out, but I'm afraid Kitty would love them the same way I do--but much more pawing through them than I would like for her to do! So, it's plastic cases for me--but I can dream....

Lovely -- and envious -- space!
