My Craft Room

Hello guys!

For a long time several friends of mine have been asking to post the pictures of my craft room, so finally I'm satisfying this request :)

I wasn't able to make a good panoramic shot of the room. Each time I tried, several parts of the picture turned out blurred or kind of double, so here are some regular pics of how my room looks in general (starting from it's right side):






As you can see I have several tables (really simple ones from IKEA), and each table represents a working station - a sewing and die-cutting station, the main working station and a computer one.

On the sewing station I have this stand (which was genuinely purposed for nail lacquers storage) for all the liquid pearls, distress stickles, distress stains, embossing powders etc.


Everything I want from here is easy to access and see:


I have several additional embossing powders on my FIMO shelves (I really hope I'll get to FIMO again sometime, I still have a lot of clay to use):


These IKEA bookshelves are a place where I keep papers for cards, my flowers (mostly from IAmRoses), boxes with beads and some other stuff:


In this Copic carrying case I store my markers. It's quite heavy, so it's always on my table:



This (again) is my main working table. I like to work on this ceramic tile (it's from the times I was making things from polymer clay), it's easy to clean and nearly impossible to scratch. I always try to have different kinds of scissors and glues withing an easy reach of my hand:


On one of the open shelves of another bookcase I keep all my Tim Holtz and Sizzix dies:


The rest of the dies are in this photo album:


It is so so HEAVY, with all the metal dies inside! :) Here are several pages from the album  for you to understand how it looks like:


Actually I learned to store dies this way from my lovely friends in Israel - Olushka & Tanya.  Thank you, girls, for an idea!

Under two (of the three) tables I have drawer units from IKEA and they are great for storing so many different things! I'm just in love with them! These I saw for the first time at my another Israeli friend - Efrat - and I said to myself that I had to have these :)


Several drawers are for my punches:




One for the inks:


Another one for crop-a-dile and corner chompers:


And all the rest for different small things:



I store my clear stamps in this office ring binder. I've added into it acetate sheets and attached the stamps to them:





Wood-mounted and rubber stamps I store in thick and thin Stuftainers, which are absolutely great!




Tim Holtz distress inks are something I use quite a lot, so I don't even want them to be in a drawer. I found a better way (at least for me) to store them. I bought two wooden boxes and put all Distress inks there. Each time I need them, it's easy to take them out of the shelf:




That's it! I hope you enjoyed reading this post :) I rest my case here :)

Have a nice day/evening, you, crafters!

  1. OMG Alexandra, This is fantastic, sooo organised and so clean and tidy, my god I wouldn't dare show my crafty space. The last time my husband went near with the vacuum thinking he was doing something nice, I lost an earring and most of my pearls.
    Note to self, must get organised. You wouldn't like to come and stay for a few days would you?

    1. Hello Chriss! Sorry for a late answer, but I have to disappoint you. I bought these two wooden drawers completely by accident in a local craftstore, and there's nothing written on them.... :((

  18. Love your craft room. You must have spent a fortune to build up this collection. Since how long have you been into crafting & adding up to your craft supplies? Just being curious. I hope you won't mind answering. :)
