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. 😀 (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, 12×12 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!
Oh my goodness, what a dream! Big thanks to Aleksandra for giving us a tour through her "hiding space" and sharing all these gorgeous photos and crafty organization tips. We thank you as well for stopping by. Be sure to leave a comment below to be entered to win this week's prize package.
