I've still got my beloved vintage metal shelf and my trusty craft desk, but I've also got the whole wall for my computer setup as well as a little purple cart that holds all my shipping supplies. I've been collecting vintage frames and painting them bright, funky colors for all the lovely artwork I like to have in my space, serving as a reminder to stay happy, colorful, and inspired. I've still got more prints to frame and hang on the adjacent wall, but I'm liking the way it looks so far. There is also quite a bit of daylight that enters this room from a window facing our backyard, so I can often hear the birds singing while I craft.
My desk opens up to provide a bit of storage for my most frequently-used supplies, as well as a nice flat surface. I like to keep lists of ideas attached to my metal shelf with magnets so that they'll be within plain sight when I'm in craft mode.
My metal shelf holds some of my favorite knick-knacks, including a vintage Avon mushroom candle holder and an adorable snail pincushion that I got in a trade with Holly, my crafty friend from Sweetheartville. It's a vintage ceramic planter that she made into a pincushion. Isn't she clever?
I added some jeweled pins from Sugar Pink Boutique for a cute way to keep my pins at close range when I'm crafting.
For my evening craft sessions, I like to burn candles. It makes the space feel so cozy, and it seems like my imagination flows more freely with warm, earthy scents drifting through the air.
While my craft desk houses many of my supplies, I've also got a few more stashed away in the other room. I found these bins at Target, and I love them way more than anybody should really love a storage bin. But with that adorable rainbow heart pattern, what am I supposed to do but love them?
I recently gutted my craft desk, did away with a bunch of clutter, and reorganized my supplies. Now I've been spending much more time with this space because it's nice and clean. Sometimes a good cleansing is the most inspiring thing in the world. What's your current inspiration?
