Where Bloggers Create 2016


Welcome to the Where Bloggers Create 2016 blog tour.  It is always exciting to be a part of this group.  I love seeing the workspaces of other crafters.  My crafting area houses materials and supplies for several different crafts.  I create jewelry, I make cards, I crochet and occasionally, I sew and make needlework projects.  This year, my space is a giant mess.  Not much has changed since last year's tour, but here are a few photos of my goodies and how they are organized.  


This a a photo of the way my beads and findings are organized.  Each drawer is organized and labeled by type and color.  There is a drawer for blue glass pearls, a drawer for antique copper filigrees and the most important drawer - the current projects drawer so I can remember what I am working on.


 This is a pic of some of our beautiful beads displayed by color.  We have lots of wall space covered with color coordinated beads of all types.  Our beads and findings can be found at Dry Gulch.  Check out the Dry Gulch Beads and Jewelry blog to see more about where our jewelry pieces are created.


This is one of my two acrylic organizers in the card crafting area.  This display holds all of my glitter and pearl paint bottles.  Another one just like it holds the distress paints, stains and sprays.  Under this holder you can see trays of Martha Stewart punches.


This is my newest addition to the craft room organization.  I am thrilled to have a spinner for the ink blending tools.  These used to live in the distress in drawer, but with all of the new colors from last year, I ran out of room for these blenders.  I only need one more distress ink pad to be all caught up.  Now, to work on the distress spray stains.


This a sad picture of how my yarn is organized for my crochet projects.  In theory, it is sorted by yarn weight, but honestly, it is just a giant mess.  I have a different container for older yarns and a giant bag for baby yarns.  There is still another bag of yarn for the Mandala Madness project I am working on.

Well, this is a little peak at all of my craft goodness.  I really enjoy my craft room with its large table and plenty of organization.  I always think I need more space, but in reality, things fit in pretty well.  I hope you enjoy the tour and a huge thanks to Karen at My Desert Cottage for hosting this event.
