Creative Workspaces

Dear Fellow Journalers,

What kind of room do you write in or craft? Do you write at night or craft by day? Do you craft on your dining room table or write in your car?

When I was designing my craft spaces, I chose our son’s old playroom to be The Craft Room. It had yellow painted walls (my favorite color) and 2 windows. I placed my crafting table under one window so I could look out at the scenery and put blue gingham curtains on the rods. Various cabinets and bookcases share the space as well. I try hard to keep everything labeled and organized but like all crafters, sometimes my crafting takes precedence and my organization goes out the window.

This is what I’m striving for:


My Thinking/Writing space, although next door to The Crafting Space is totally different. I knew I needed a comfortable space filled with things that inspire and stimulate me, so I chose to keep the wood-paneled walls. The one window is draped in a nautical print and I have my rocking chair near by flanked by a desk and coloring book station. My die-cutter sits against the opposite wall with a bookcase filled with magazines and items I have made

I do need a thinking/planning/memo board where I can put clipped notes on – anyone got ideas for that project?

Every few months  I take some time to look at my spaces and re-evaluate them to see it they still reflect my vision and support what I am doing.

So I’m curious: what kind of creative workspace do you have?

‘Til next time,
