This book showcases the studios/craft spaces of 23 crafty women, from dollmakers to quilters to multi-media artists. Each women is featured with photos of her space and insights into how she stays inspired, what her favorite colors are, her tips for organization and exercises to fuel creativity, and her earliest memories of creativity. It was excellent reading and the photos were fabulous.
I wasn't inspired to create anything, rather I am inspired to share with you today photos of my craft space. I am fortunate to have an entire room for my office/craft room, and I've sent the past year or so getting everything just the way I like it. Of course, the walls are painted in yellow, my favorite color! The room is rectangular in shape - here's the view of the left wall looking in the door.
And here's the view looking to the right from the doorway.
Looking back toward the doorway, you can see my bulletin board filled with miscellaneous photos and memorabilia.
This sign hangs over the doorway. It was the sign my Grandma hung in her window when she took in sewing and alterations. Even though I don't sew, I think my craft room is the perfect place for this reminder of her.
And my very own artwork - plagues that I made at Church Camp when I was seven or eight-years-old.
And this cute little gift that Brenda gave me for Christmas one year - I'm still trying to decide if she was complimenting me on my organizational skills or just simply calling me lazy!
Where Women Create: Book of Inspiration, leave a comment telling me what type of craft space you have - is it a whole room, a table, a corner, or a shared space in your home.
If you're new to Pass the Book, you can check out all the details here. I'll draw a name at random from all comments left by the end of the day on Monday, June 13.
