home decor: my craft room reveal














i am so excited to share my craft room with you!! i spend several hours a week in this room and i absolutely love it! this is my space where i organize, make crafts, and blog. this room is filled with black & white, polka dots, stripes, and pops of color. i am easily excited by tissue paper, crafting, greeting cards, and boxes-lots & lots of boxes (as you can see they are everywhere). everyone has their weird quirky things they like right!? ha! i know i sure do anyways.

there is a lot to talk about in this room but let me first talk about some of the special pieces in this room. they are:

-merci bag hanging on the wall is my first trip to Paris at an amazing concept store that i fell in love with. i studied abroad in italy for 6 months and this was one of my favorite pieces of my trip
-black hanging picture frame on the wall that has white flowers in the picture, that was a gift from my aunt and those are my wedding flowers
-the golden bunny on the stack of magazines on my sewing table is from my great great aunt as a hand me down
-the gold hanging frame that talks about champagne is a gift from my bachelorette party from my best friend and maid of honor
-my sewing machine was a gift given to me from my grandmother when i was in high school 
-my white computer desk was a desk that i have had my entire life that my dad has re-painted several times and i love it more each time we paint it ha!
-the pearls hanging on the mannequin hand on the book shelf were my great aunts that she wore and i inherited
-the picture of my mother and i at easter several years ago is one of my favorite pictures of us
-my books: some are hand me downs, one is written by my great aunt, others are encouraging words and positive thinking, and words on heaven and jesus
-the curtains that are handmade from my mother-in-law
-the white canvas with lipstick is from my bachelorette weekend with most of my bridesmaids lipstick

all of the pieces that make up my craft room are very special to me and things i am very passionate about. i am fortunate that my wonderful husband allowed me to make our extra room a craft room instead of a boring office or another guest bedroom haha (i promised him the next house he would have a man room) so we agreed! some of the other details of my craft room include some of my favorite cards that i have collected over the years as well as my favorite brittany fuson fashion illustrations. i love her work and i have collected many of her prints the past few years since i discovered her. 

gift wrapping & packaging items are also high on my obsession list. as you can see above with my ribbon holder that my mother got me for Christmas (i absolutely love it). some of the other items i hoard are tissue paper, gift tags, twine, and colorful pens. i love wrapping gifts for others and have always appreciated a pretty package. i believe its always special when the packaging is as good as the gift inside. 

some of the things i am working on this week include putting up the new card shelves that reed made me and firing up my circuit to make some new paper items. i can't wait to share the card shelves with you later this week. they are adorable and as always i admire reed's craftsmanship. he is so talented! anyways, i hope you all enjoyed your weekend and hope you have a great monday. see you again this week :)
