O.K. So I was suppose to be wrapping up an exercise video right now and just hopping in the shower, but here I sit still in my pj's - just a little distracted. Don't you hate when you stop in at the computer for "one quick check of email" and then before you know it your whole morning is gone!?! Well, this is how it started. I got this link from my wonderful sister Cassie showing me this absolutely gorgeous garland. Cassie wants to make one for Christmas. I want one for both (Halloween and Christmas!) So cute huh? Look at her Fleur-de-lis stocking hangers. I love how much that adds to the whole look.

So then I started browsing Candice's blog just for fun. Lots of cute stuff, but then I fell in love! I found it. Oh my gosh. Look at this:

HER CRAFT ROOM! Agh! Oh my gosh. I'm in heaven right now.

You can go here for the rest of her pictures and a list of resources for where she got most of her cute stuff. Ohh...

**O.K. bring yourself back down to earth, Amber.**

So, I am sitting about about 12 feet from a doorway that leads to this empty room.

With this closet, with these built-ins.

This room measures about 15'x14'. It's pretty good size. Especially for a craft room. All it's waiting for is some paint and some tables (o.k. the list could go on and on here, but I could definitely have a good start if I just had some paint and a table.) It's just sitting here empty, except for the occasional mess that the kids make when they decide to play in the basement when both Mommy and Daddy are working on the computer. Oh, the possibilities...

You may remember that I made-over my upstairs laundry room into my craft room less than a year ago.
But, it's tiny! If there is a laundry basket in there, then I can hardly walk through! That make-over was when we had family living in our basement, but they moved on to bigger and better, so now the basement is empty and the master bedroom is calling my name!
It's a blank canvas. The color options are endless. Where do I begin? Hmmm....I'll be thinking about that. What about you? Any big projects now that winter is coming and a lot of us will be trapped indoors for 3 months?


  1. Well, thanks to you Amber I just added that garland to my list of projects! Gorgeous, thanks for sharing such a great find...

  2. Oh, go for it Amber! I'd love to have a huge craft/sewing room, but mine is about 6' x 10' (and I'm being generous in my estimate). Please show us once you get it all decorated!

    Love the garland, by the way. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Seriously...you need to get your hands on that room!! With a blank canvas like that, it's so hard to decide, but I'm sure you'll come up with some way cute ideas and color schemes. Maybe we could get ideas together. I'm ready to do my craft room downstairs now too.
    P.S. Can't wait for the garland project!

  4. Have a blast planning and looking for all the cute and cool things that will make your craft/sewing room an organized and comfortable place to CREATE in!!!

  5. Thank you for the distraction! Your blog was the last one I was going to read before getting a shower and getting dressed. After visiting the links within your blog I realized about 20 minutes had passed and now I'm running late! Thank you, however, for the enabling! Love it! :)
