homework features and a studio tour
alright crafters, time to review last week's homework assignment to spruce up your space!
first let's look at what you guys accomplished this week!
i am so excited that my dear friend whitney from my old utah days decided to take the crafting plunge!
she used this tutorial to make a little banner to hang in her house.
i just love how cheery the blue and yellow are.
great job whitney! i hope that you keep up the crafting!
how many of us have projects on our pinterest boards that we say we're going to do but never finish?
well i am so excited to feature jenn, a new blogging friend,
because she got to work and did one of her pinned projects instead of just thinking about it!
her adorable little glass containers have chalkboard labels and little painted figurines,
perfect for storing plenty of tiny craft supplies.
for the assignment, i decided to actually clean my desk for once (haha)
and re-do my little inspiration board.
i thought this would be a perfect chance for me to give you guys a little tour of my "studio"
here's the inspiration board i have hung by my desk.
it is an old drawing board from an art class in college that i covered with chalkboard paint last year.
now i have my blog schedule to keep me on track, a list of projects to finish,
a few magazine pages i find really inspiring right now,
and a couple pictures of my little boy to be - the most inspiring thing i have right now :]
my little craft nook is actually our dining room.
we didn't have a dining table when we moved in, so i just set up camp.
two years later and we still don't have a dining table, so i'm still crafting here!
i like to try (keyword try) to keep it clean in here so i can sit down and get right to work when i need.
i keep my sewing machine and essential crafting tools in those little metal drawers.
the rest of my supplies are in a hall closet (or end up in a giant box on the floor in here... oops!)
but my favorite part of my nook? the hidden ironing board closet!
our little 1920's apartment may have it's dusty drafty corners,
but there are some little quirks like this closet that make it so worth it!
hope you enjoyed the tiny tour of my little baby craft space.
its not much, but i've really come to love it :]
see you back here tomorrow with our next homework assignment!
were you able to accomplish your crafting goals last week?
