“Hello everyone! Today I would like to share my craft room with you. Until February 2022 I lived in Kyiv, Ukraine. But when the war started, I was forced to abandon home and leave my scrapbook goodies. I have been living in Thailand on Phuket Island since June 2022. I was able to transfer only a small part of what was left at home. I already bought something when I lived here. Now I don’t have as many scrapbook supplies as I used to.

   My room is not super big but it works for my needs. The things that I love most about my craft room are the large windows. I really like the palm trees outside.

I have two desks. One is for my crafting, another is for my computer work. I’m keeping all my scrapbook treasures in my drawers and on the shelves. 



I’m using a cutlery tray to organize all my tools that I use very often.





I’m using a plate holder to keep my tools.





I’m making my own stamp and die sets.


And I like to use a makeup brush organizer for my art brushes.


This is my space. I hope you enjoyed looking through all my goodies and that you’ve got some ideas for your craft space. Thank you for joining me. Have a nice day!” ~Maria Smeshkova




Happy Papercrafting!
