Welcome To Your Creative Spaces

Welcome to Your Creative Spaces, a blog for highlighting our creative spaces. Everyone loves to see other creative spaces. I thought I'd create one place to highlight spaces over time. To get started I'll share my creative space. I'm sure you've seen the photos and tour before, but I have to start somewhere.

Here is the view from the door. My ironing board sits next to my display wall. There's a small cart where I put my computer or DVD player when I'm working in here.
These are my two work areas. The table is used for sewing and as a desk. Do you see the three boxes on the table? They are wooden boxes with a small chalkboard on them. I haven't decided if I'm going to use them in the studio or for storing Mr. E's toys. They were a bargain find at JoAnn's. Behind the table is my cutting island. I use it for cutting, planning and as a space for laying out in progress projects. There is also storage space for a few UFOs and my paper crafting supplies.
This is my "storage" wall. The bookcase contains my small book collection, including children's books for Mr. E. The massage chair cushion is waiting for a good home somewhere in our house. It is sitting on an antique sewing table that is also waiting to find it's perfect use. You can almost see the plastic storage unit I also got at JoAnn's. I store in it. In the black bag I have my yarn projects. The cubbies hold various items: office supplies; the fabric baskets hold sewing notions, my stitching supplies and small projects. On the bottom shelf are binders with projects and printouts from quilt classes.
Back in June, Stephanie of Loft Creations wrote a post about her passion for bags. I bookmarked it because I wanted to show how I store my bags. I don't have a design wall. Instead I have a display wall. I use 3M Command Adhesive Hooks to hang bags, ornaments and other gifts I've received in swaps. I'm always inspired when I look at the wall.
Would you like to share you creating space? I'd be happy to post a link to your blog where you can show us your creative space. To get involved, send me an email using the link above telling me you would like to participate. In the email include at least one photo of your space (I will give you complete credit) and a link to your blog showing us your space.

My plan is to show a new space on Tuesdays and Saturdays. I will post links in the order I receive them. So come on, share your space!

Sweet P


  1. I am loving your new blog! Can I link your creative space to my sidebar? You can find my own space listed there and are free to share it here.

  2. Hi Sweet P! Love the idea of sharing our spaces with each other! I did a few posts in January on my big clean-up and how I organize my space. You are welcome to link to those posts, or grab the pictures and write what you want or cut and paste or however you want to do it.

    I love seeing how other people organize their stuff and their space. It's inspirational!
