The craft room - The Dainty Squid

The craft room

Thursday, July 22, 2010



Not a lot has changed since the last time I posted pictures except for the fact I've hung lots of things on the wall.  Doc is the best sewing buddy you could ever ask for. He is almost always sitting on the back of the chair, keeping my head warm!

xoxo!

  2. Cutest kitty chair warmer ever, I love your colorful and roomy craft room and can't wait to have a huge one like it.

    Question- are those live cacti? If so, how do they fare down there where there is little light?

  3. GAH! You are so inspirational, and I have the utmost JEALOUSY of that fabric stash oh my *swoon* I don't know if you've ever written about it, but how did you get really started into sewing, and turn it completely into a full time job? That would be my dream, to stay at home and do what I love. I would love to hear how others have made this their reality!

  15. Oh I loooove it, those curtains are precious! and I love how you have the poloroids arranged!

    I have a question about your cutting table, I've been planning my craft/sewing room for a while now and I'm about to start purchasing cabinets and counter tops and I certainly need a nice cutting space. It looks like you have a ginormous self healing mat there! If so..where can I find one nice a big for my future cutting spot?

    Thanks for always inspiring :)

  16. Oh man I am soo jealous of your sweet craft room!! I hope I can have one that awesome one day. I live in a studio apartment with two separate room...kitchen/dining room and then living room/bedroom. The kitchen/dining room area is what I like to call my craft "area", with my table, craft and fabric stash, sewing machine, yarn, etc. Yours is such a bright and vibrant room, it must be amazing to get down to some crafty business in there!!

  17. Aww your craft room is so charming! It's awesome you have a space dedicated to creating. I hope to have my own craft room in my home, someday.

    Love and Turtledoves,

  19. Do you want to trade craft rooms? I LOVE your craft room! Mine is currently a makeshift sewing area set up in my dining room. I have to break it down and pack it away at least a couple times a week so it doesn't make the house look like a disaster. I hope there is a really good reason why California homes don't have basements.

  20. You have the most inspiring craft room ever! I keep telling my husband that when we get our own place, I want to get a craft room like yours!
    Right now I have a corner desk (I made it so it's awesome) and a cabinet in one corner of my bedroom...and the lizard cage is directly behind it so it's kind of awkward to craft.

  21. Mando, I got the mat from Joann fabrics. :)

    NillaWafer, I know how that is, while this one was being built I was in the dining room. It made the whole house look like a wreck!

    Thank you all so much!! :D

  24. So amazing! Chris and I are sharing our craft room, so it's the craft and music room, plus it doubles as the guest room. I can't wait to have a serious craft room all to myself!

  27. Awww he keeps you company & wears your head! Lucky! ... My dogs grab my supplies, make a dash for the door, and I only find bits and pieces ALL over the house. I don't have multi-purpose dogs :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. hahha, multipurpose dogs! i suppose my cats are multipurpose kitties! :P

  29. wait, that's not to say Doc is the perfect little helper! He enjoys trying to eat copious amounts of thread that I have to pull out of his mouth!

  30. So what size is that mat? I got mine at Joann too but I've never seen one so big! I did find some online that are quite large, they are pretty pricey! I won't have to get one till I start building my space but I, like you, love to "window shop" online. I'm sort of addicted and it's a real bummer when ya have very little $! D:

  31. At least it is out of his mouth & not out the other end.

    There's the recipe link for now, and I'll be blogging about it tomorrow at lifeisawantad.blogspot.com
