SOS Challenge Blog Kick-Off

Welcome to the Kick-Off Challenge for the new Shopping Our Stash Challenge Blog! We thought the best way to start the ball rolling is to host a virtual 2-week long "open house" where we share a look at our crafty spaces and stashes! It's always fun to see behind the scenes where we spend so much of our time and money!

First I planned to take the pictures when my room is nice and tidy, but miracles are not happening... I realized that waiting to see this room clean is pointless - I'm always in the middle of some project/projects so I took advantage of nice morning sunshine and took my pictures:

here is a look at my whole room - I have 2 tables, but as you can see they are both COVERED with stuff - if you are wondering how can I create like that - well, sometimes I wonder too ;)

my craft table covered in stuff and magazine holders with papers on the left - 12x12 papers are just loose in the shelf, markers in various plastic containers.

here are my drawers with ribbon - the only organized thing in my room - I have 2 12x12 drawers of it and I actually manage to keep it tidy - yay me!

here is how I store my Nesties - on a magnet strip - need to install more, my collection more than doubled since I installed the strip. So now you seen it all and you can see that I REALLY need to use my stash - how is yours (stash/craft space)?

OMG, I feel so validated with my own crafty space. :)

This is what my (very small) desk generally looks like after I've been creative - I'm so glad I'm not alone! LOL.

I LOVE your ribbon drawl - I was postively drooling over that picture!!

Thank you for sharing your crafting space, xo Lou.

I totally need to re-do my ribbons after seeing yours. That looks awesome!

Congrats on making the team!

I just saw this challenge in my reader and I think your space looks closest to mine although I have a lot more stuff (eeek!!) lol.

Good thing the challenge is 2 weeks, I don't know if I have the guts to post an as-is picture LOL!!

I am with you on the ribbon.. its the one thing that stays organized since I started storing it that way. Love your space!

Your craft room looks so pretty! And your ribbon organization is super impressive :-) Have a great day.

I love your craft space, but how DO you work on that table? I need to find some great magnets to hold my nesties too. There's a project for another day, I guess.

WOAH!!! Look at all that craftiness!! I just love it! I'm with you ... waiting for nice and tidy is impossible and not meant to be. keeley
