Hello and Welcome to Naush’s Craft Room. If you’d like to visit my latest Craft studio, please visit the link :- Tour of my Ikea Craft Room.
If you’re like me,
a crafter at heart, in spirit & mind,
love to keep experimenting and learning new techniques,
giving things a new lease of life repurposing or upcycling them
feel at ease working in your little craft space for hours together
blogging happily about mundane things that you “created”
look forward to linking “projects” to the various wonderful linking parties
Your favorite places to hang out are thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets.
And Pinerest is your best friend !!!
well …… then you have come to the right place.
Below is a slideshow of my Craft room ~ Design studio or Craft Studio, which ever you prefer to call yours. Grab a cuppa coffee and feel free to go thru all my drawers.
Its a happy place full of color and my crafty toys. I read somewhere that “ A CLEAN HOUSE IS THE SIGN OF A WASTED LIFE” I dont exactly agree with it, but prefer to hide behind this quote when it comes to the clutter on my craft desk 😦
So anyways long story short : Temporary loss of creative Mojo can also be a good thing for the organizing junkie in me !
2 weeks back, I had had enough of the chaos in my design studio (DS) and just had to get things into their corners, shelves, drawers, pockets, folders and where ever else not @@
My domestic motto is “Everything has a place and Everything in its place” but ofcourse the DS does not really come in the realms of domestic domain, now does it ?? ! I mean, it is larger part hobby and some parts business, isnt it ?
Okaaaaay !! So thats just another one of the excuses I use to explain the heaps of “stuff” :- stripes of paper and scraps that line every inch of my DS floor !! Finding the scissors, or punches or doublesided tape or one of the nestablilities dies, or even worse, that one eyelet I just took out from the pack, right in the middle of a desk filled with cluttered scraps of paper, ribbon, tools etc was really getting on to me 😦
I know~believe ~understand that probably 24 hours after decluttering, things will again go back to being in a nasty state … but hey, while I am keeping my peace, why not show off a couple of pictures !!!
I am one of those ladies, like thousands of you’ll who is blessed with an entire room to create havoc in. That is the one place which is off limits to the boys, especially after the second embossing machine was burnt out while trying to use it like a hair dryer to dry the towels. Luckily no fire but the rule was firmly set ” NO KIDS IN THE DS !!!!!!! PERIOD ” Still, the boys do sneak in once in a while, when the mummy bee is doing her business at the kitchen sink ! You know what they say about the forbidden fruit ! I dont really blame them. The DS is like a room full of joyful toys for my boys. Do I sound like Dr Seusse?
The pictures I have here are just parts of the two walls in the DS. The remaining parts of the walls and the other two walls will probably have to wait for another photo shoot !
I am really not a hoarder . Okay, once you see the pictures, I’ll let you be the judge of that !
Or even better, I should leave a poll for you’ll to decide, if or if not “I am a hoarder”
OKAY so that was how things looked and I struggled .. and struggled … and finally made some space and bought back my peace of mind.
This is how it looks now, well, sometimes though 🙂
I will be labelling them shortly on this page. For now, just view them and dont forget to tell me, the verdict ??
I hope you enjoyed your brief visit into my craft haven and will visit again. If you found inspiration in some of my organizational skills, I am so glad and if you identified with the mess on my desk in the “before” pics, then trust me, all of us “creative minds and hands need some amount of clutter to create something worth cheerishing “
Thanks for stopping by .. I would really appreciate if you would leave a comment to tell me how you found my little craft haven 🙂
Have a beautiful day !
