Show me your CRAFT ROOM blog hop !!!

Welcome Everyone, Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog. We have a group of very talented crafty people from all over the world who can't wait to share their awesome spaces with you. 
We hope to inspire you with new ideas for your own craftroom/space.
This is a no obligation hop, so if you would like to just browse through the space's, that is totally ok!
This hop will be open all weekend long! So no rush!
However, for those of you who like freebies there will be "blog candy" if you follow and comment on each posting and leave a comment with "your best organizational tip" on Lluvia's blog your name will entered in a random drawing to win a $25.00 gift card from Michaels!!! Winner will be announced on Tuesday 1/24/12
Ready, Set, Go!
If your craft room is like mine it is always changing. Sometimes I just can't pass up anything at the thrift store that can be transformed into something great in my space. Here are a few pics of some stuff I really like for you to see in my room. Then you can watch the video of the whole room.
First is this great desk that I just finished. I painted it, destressed it and also used glaze on it. I had the best time doing this and it really went well. I'm so happy with how it turned out that cute little stool is next..LOL
Also, beside the desk is a box that holds my white paper and page protectors. I purchase that at a thrift store. It is a box for an old record player. The only thing that was inside was sheets of music so I glued them onto the box with Modge Podge... Love it !!

The next thing I want to show you is my idea of a great organization idea. As you see the stickle bottles are hanging upside down. I got my husband to cut me pieces of metal and I glued them to the shelves. Then I want to the craft store and bought round magnets with a sticky back and stuck them to the bottem of the bottles. Now the air never gets in my stickles...... Perfect !!!
Just make sure you use the right metal that magnets stick too. Only steel, and mine was cut on really thin steel so that it doesn't add any weight to my shelf.
Ok, those are the two things I really want to show you up close. Please watch my little video to see pics of the whole room. Feel free to ask any questions!!!

Great room!

erinB said...

I love your hanging Stickles! I've seen that before, but done it!
Already a follower :) My favorite tip? Put things away when you're done with them. No sense in needing to clean before you start the next time!

Lluvia Mata said...

Your space is so warming and inviting, it has a feel of a scrap booking retreat! I love it! Thank you for participating in my hop! :)

Linda Dale said...

Paper Memories4u said...

Very clever using bed risers to raise your table up. Love that idea. It's great being in this hop with you. Dana

ScrapMyWay said...

You have such a pretty craft room and LOTS of fun storage ideas...YEP the Stickles idea is terrific as well as the risers..BRILLIANT!! PARIS is gorgeous, I have a D.J. for her!!! LOL
Thanks for sharing and inspiring, it's been great to have been able to share this hop with so many talented, organized crafters!
Now following,
Creative Wishes,

Vicki said...

I really like the stickles idea! May have to copy that one because I feel they should be upside down as well. Paris is the perfect embellishment for your room. I scrap in a bedroom too. Thanks for sharing..I enjoyed your video


Pammejo said...

What a wonderful creative space, so many nooks and creative places and storage. Thanks for sharing. pammejo1@yahoo.com

MissVassy said...

Yeah... I am going to have to steal that stickles idea. I hate air in my stickles!

I do not have a craft room or even area for that matter so I can't keep my stuff all neat like you. I do keep my ribbons in clear plastic shoe boxes from The Container Store so I can see them. They are organized by color and I also have special Christmas and Fall ribbon boxes. Thinking of doing the same for my flowers because they are all hanging on my Clip it up now and I need to make space for other embellishments.

A Creative Journey said...

OH MY GOSH! I had seen the idea to store the stickles bottles upside down with velcro but MAGNETS! OMG-SO MUCH BETTER!! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! My tip is to organize how you scrap-not how everyone else does or what looks cute. Otherwise, you will find yourself going in circles and chasing your tail like a dog! LOL I am a new follower and would be honored if you would check out my blog and do the same at ACreativeJourneywithMelissa dot blogspot.com. Have a wonderful weekend!

PurpleFuntastick Creations said...

Letillia said...

The Stickles Idea is BRILLANT TFS it w/ us! I am a new follower I hope you can stop by my blog when you get a chance!!


Rose said...

Fantastic shoe tree/Clip it up tip. I have been wanting one but not willing to pay that price for essentially a spinning hanger, that's a great idea. Thanks for sharing your great room.

kim.scrapper said...

Great room, lots of great tips in your space. The best thing I loved about your room was Paris and I would pay full price for her too, she is adorable! How did you make your shelf for your paper? tfs, Kim (kim.scrapper@yahoo.ca)

Rhonda Emery said...

Tambo said...

Sam, I love your room. I could never share mine with a bed in it though. LOL I like your stickles idea. I saw it done with velcro that way too. I just don't have the space or I would do that too. I love shopping at the GW and finding things I can re-purpose for my room too. tfs bloggy hugs, new follower and happy crafting. Tami

Haidee said...

TFS your crafty space!!! At first i thought one of the pictures were upside down, lol then I realized HELLO... best tip!!! LOL Great being in hop wit you!!

Scrappin' Sista said...

You have a wonderful room. I love how you store your Stickles. I'm working on a way to store my now. Thank you so much for allowing us to invade your space. Be blessed.


Sarah Bennett said...

Great little video! And I can't believe you made the paper holder yourself! Wow- you are very organized and very clever, too! Thanks for sharing so many great ideas. I do have a question, though: I love Stickles, but more often than not I can not get the glitter out of the bottles. I just get little bits of clean glue. Does hanging them upside down really prevent that? Is that the reason you store them that way?

Cathie in UT said...

Thank you for sharing your room. I too have to scrap in a spare bedroom and it's nice to see how you have arranged things.
