Ask me to show you where I go to unwind, and I will take you down the stairs to my craft room, which is located in our walk-out basement. There is a big, sunny picture window where I can see most of our tree covered acre. It is an inspirational place to sit and paint. The craft room connects to David's office, and those are the only two rooms located downstairs, if you don't count our garage, of course, or David's wood-working room. All of the rooms downstairs have concrete floors- my craft room and the office are stained concrete. I LOVE these floors and am so happy with our decision to use them when we built. They are perfect in the office for rolling around in the rolly-chair, and great for the craft room when you need to vacuum up glitter!
I love this room! With a big window and a glass door to the back deck, I may never leave!!
My dad built this desk for me as a child, and it makes a perfect storage station for all of my "stuff!"
I have two of these industrial sized paper cutters, and I could absolutely not live without them!!
I love Stampin Up! stamps!
My mother actually gave this old Singer to me two days ago. She bought it when we lived in Germany. It is old and precious to me. I'm honored to have it, mom!
This old filing cabinet painted with white rust-o-leum makes a perfect caddy to hold all of my tools.
My paint station sits on top of the filing cabinet and easily holds all of my brushes, paints, paper towels, and glitter.
I found this work desk this last summer at a garage sale. The wire baskets hold my fabric and crotchet projects.
These hanging baskets hold the ribbon I use most frequently for either wrapping, or crafting. Below those are my bins for gift bags and tissue paper.
I put everything that inspires me into my "Idea Box." I always save any handmade cards I receive, but I also save unique baby announcements, wedding invitations, and Christmas cards. They are fun to pull out on a rainy day!
This kitchen island used to grace our old kitchen, but with us building a bigger house, it was no longer needed. I smartly saved it during the construction process, and now it is a great place to store scrapbook paper, albums, and die-cuts.
From my work table, this is the view I have into the office.
Where do you go to unwind?
