My Stamping Space

Sorry for the lack of posting lately.  Between the kids starting lacrosse and softball and finishing up volleyball...I just can't get a handle on this new schedule.  I had some time the other night to peek in on some other crafty people's creative spaces. Oh, the jealousy!  Or maybe envy is a better word... These beautiful rooms with cabinets and large counter tops, lots of fun containers and color...inspiration galore!  I stamp in my living room.  I don't have tons of space and I keep everything somewhat concealed so that if I need it to actually function as a living room, it can.  On days when there is lots of crafting going on, I can promise  that the floor, couch, coffee table and any other available surface is covered in paper, glue, buttons and glitter.  I did clean it all up to share some pictures.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Lots of my punches, embossing supplies and ribbons are kept in photo boxes I picked up on sale.  The big red cabinet is an old Canterberry candle display that used to live in my local CVS.  I rescued it on it's trip out to the trash.  My husband added the doors and I added a bit of color.  My table was made from two wooden stools and a piece of wood that I antiqued.  My dad made the frame for my foam board.  This was made from a piece of leftover foam core, a piece of scrap fabric and some Poppy Parade stitched-poly ribbon and twill tape.   I love having a spot for my laptop near my work center.  If I'm not watching someone's crafty YouTube video, I'm catching up on Grey's Anatomy or Parenthood! 
I can't wait to hit the yard sales...I'm sure I'll find some other creative ways to conceal my goods!
Happy Stamping!

  2. very nice Amy!!! Even with having a room for stamping, I still bring some of my stuff out to the living area because, well, it's the living area and it's fun to be around where the family is... so I really like your area.


  3. Love you space Amy. You ideas and great way to conceal all your supplies. Thanks for sharing.
