Having a pretty space to be creative in is a must for me! I like for things to be organized or my brain and creativity seems to shut down...I just cannot work in chaos. Recently I decided it was time to really organize my craft/office space, and today I want to share my craft room tour with you!
I was so excited when my girl Angie from The Country Chic Cottage asked me to participate in her Craft Room Tour series, because I finally had a reason to share my newly organized space with you! As you can already see, this space is tiny! It is actually supposed to be used as a breakfast nook, but with limited space in our home, it has always been used as my work space. I am so drawn to the windows and natural light that spills in them. I find myself in a better mood when I am working in here!
The two shelves that fit in the alcove here house all of my blogging "stuff". My books and pens, sharpies and paintbrushes, Silhouette machine and soooo much more are close at hand.
There is a place for my sewing machine and some of my favorite fabrics.
And a place for me to stay organized and print things off as need be.
Here is a pic of one of two of my most recent projects, my Polka Dot Flower Pots and Framed Earring Storage Stand. I do most of my blog photographing in this space because of all of the natural light!
I keep my washi tape and my favorite pic of my kiddos nearby!
That's my little craft / office space...hope you like it! I think it shows that you don't have to have a huge space or even a closed room to carve out your own creative space. I also love that Kate (my daughter), and I can work on a project or homework here while I cook dinner. So, what do you think? Can you carve out a little space for a craft room?
Thanks so much to Angie for inviting me to play along with the blogger craft room tours...be sure to stop by all of the other blogger's craft rooms and take a look around, HERE!

IT LOOKS SO PRETTY JESSICA. VERY CHEERFUL. THE NATURAL LIGHT IS AMAZING IN THERE! IT TOO HAVE TO CARVE. NO DEDICATED CRAFT ROOM FOR ME. I LIKE YOUR VERSION OF A CRAFT ROOM. VERY REALISTIC!!
Shan, you know I have to have my cheerful space, otherwise I'll lose my mind!
Angie @ CCC says
I love this space Jessica!! Awesome as always! Thanks for joining!
Love all the light and colors! I wish I had a great space for photos!
WOW!!! I SO love what you have done with this space!!! So organized, so pretty, so happy - great inspiration!!
I love the material you used for the window boxes! I have been wanting to put yellow accents in my blue kitchen. It's similar to the purple, teal, & grey pattern I made the curtains in my bedroom from, which I bought from JoAnn's- Is That where you got yours?
Hi so enjoyed your craft space. I also loved your curtains and am wondering what material was used? I have my own little site: nosy nancy on Facebook. I so enjoy meeting new artists and found myself snapping pictures and asking way too many questions so I decided to post them there. I also opened up an Etsy shop under Sea Boston. Keep on crafting!
I love your room! Did you make your valance? Where did you get the fabric or where did you get the valance?

I am so happy to have found this post! I am also short on space & have been giving some serious thought to setting up a "craft" area like you have in your breakfast nook. Now I feel more comfortable in going forward with my plan. Thank you for your great post!
Wow!!! Love it!!! You have inspired me to get to work on my craft room. The colors and organization are fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing.

Wow, I never would have guessed that it is a breakfast nook! Love the bright light and your fresh colors! It may be tiny, but your space totally rocks.

Girl! You are a wonder! That's a perfect space. I love it! Thanks for sharing!
I love the valance in this picture. Do you happen to remember where you got it? The colors fit perfectly in my guest room and I have been having a heck of a time finding anything I like. Thanks!
I made them myself using fabric from OnlineFabricStore.com . Aren't they the cutest? I think I've seen similar fabric at Hobby Lobby as well!
