on a corner of my home...

an addition to my crafting nook.
  • A doily.
  • One of my first business cards.
  • My favorite card from a "go fish" set my sisters and I loved when we were little. (Even though my name was spelled "wrong", I loved it.)
  • A childhood photo of my dad.
  • An adorable banner I picked up at the Etsy booth at a Renegade craft fair.
This had been adorning the wall of my now defunct crafting nook. Thinking we were going to be getting a washer/dryer, I had taken everything down and rearranged it all to fit the new appliances. Well, the actual purchasing of the washer/dryer kind of fell through (which is just as well, I suppose, since we may be moving soon), so now my nook is a huge mess and I'm kind of missing how it used to be.

I dream of having a craft room someday. It will be painted a friendly shade of blue, with built-in shelves, a frame collage on one wall, a chevron-striped rug on the floor, huge windows with sunlight pouring in, and…it will be bliss.

  1. I dream of a crafting nook as well. I can't wait to have a bigger place to actually have my sewing machine out so that maybe I will use it. hehe!

  7. Your home always looks picture perfect! It's a big inspiration to me -- I'm just starting to decorate my very first place. I probably won't need a nook such as this; I couldn't craft my way out of a paper bag, but I LOVE the twine and the tiny little clothespins. Tres cute.
