My Studio Tour

Hi everyone! By many requests I have had, I am doing a little tour of my studio.
Click on pictures to see a larger version. If you have any questions about any of the items in my studio, just shoot me an email at

This is my studio now:

Here is the before EEK! I really didn't like the wall color at all. And the carpet was in bad shape.

The start of the remodel of my room, and my helpers who did it all (: Already painted and new carpet. I painted the walls by taking a sheet of my Papertrey Ink Hawaiian Shores paper and had them match it. That is my FAVORITE color ever!

This is one of the 3 IKEA Expedits I have in the room. My room now only has 2, I moved one into my daughters room to make room for a sitting/reading area.

This picture is sitting at the main desk looking out. That is my previous Copic holder. Also my ribbon holder that I got from Homegoods.

This is my main crafting table. Almost everything in this room is from IKEA. I just LOVE the picture fram shelves, they are perfect for wood stamps. My husband built me the twine rack. And you can see my cute Pomeranian Prince smiling over there.

Here are the stamp shelves up close and where I store allot of my Hero Arts stamps. And my beautiful new flower painting from Homegoods.

Just below that now is my holder for more of my clear stamps and loose stamps. LOVE this desktop organizer, its from Homegoods ;) And the little tin desktop organizer holds all my distress inks.

This is turning left a little more, showing the table my Mac used to sit at. I have now moved it to the main table. Much better for watching Netflix while I craft. And behind the Mac is my Making Memories shelf and ribbon holder.

Turning left a little more, you can see the MM shelf up closer holding all my PTI buttons and ribbon.

Keeping left, my first Expedit. I LOVE Ikea, and these cubby shelves are perfect for crafters because each cubby is 13x13. I got my cubby bins from Target, they have ones to fit the expedit perfectly.

Picture of the same shelf standing back more.

After moving the Mac, this table is now my sewing table.

Here's a little more updated photo removing the other Expedit shelf and adding a chair that I LOVE, I got it from Homegoods. The chalkboard with the basket, Table, Pillow, Apocrathy jars and chest is also from Homegoods.

My pretty chair and pillow up close. And you can see on the right, my Grandmothers typewriter that I cherish. 

The pretty table from Homegoods, isn't it cute? I love how it is distressed. And you can see my Grandmothers antique camera. I love old cameras.

I will spare you looking at the closet LOL, its a little messy. This is by the entryway. The floor card stand is from Pottery Barn and the tabletop card stand is from the thrift. The adorable owl print is from Target. (:

Here is some further updated pictures:

I added another table next to my sewing table. This is my cutting table and where I store my Twine on my new twine rack that my husband designed (we will be selling them soon) (: And I also pin my creations to my blinds, it brings color to the boring white blinds LOL.

This is my workspace. The big spinning organizer is from Michaels. The smaller one is from Pottery Barn. And the Copic holder is a picnic condiment holder from Target, best to look for them in the summer.

A few more things I added to my shelf. Some Apocrothy jars and Owl bookends from Homegoods.

Here I added this cute Owl canvas print, pillows, owl, more Apocrathy jars and a basket from Homegoods.

And the lastest picture of my whole Studio!

I hope you enjoyed the tour of my studio. My FAVORITE place to be. I just LOVE my room after the remodel. After allot of sweat and tears (and blowing my budget lol) it was SO worth it. And yes, it is always this clean ... even after crafting all day. I have very bad OCD, I have to clean after each card LOL! 

On a personal note. I don't remember if I have mentioned about my Anemia, but I am doing allot better now after all the Iron supplements I am taking. Finally, I am getting my energy back slowly but surely. It's nice being able to do lots of things instead of just sleeping all the time. Its been a bad few months dealing with this and my back on top of it all. My back is also doing much better after getting the steroid shot in my back, it was a God send. So I want to say thank you to all of you who sent prayers and many wonderful notes. I appreciate them so much!

Have a wonderful day!
(: (: Jenny

Thanks for sheering your craft room! I am currently trying to plan mine and I could use some extra inspiration! I think I will also go for some expedit shelves! They look useful! Unfortunately I have to split the room with my boyfriend because he also needs some working space so this is why the room will be a little harder to plan!

Your space is adorable! I have the exact same Expidit shelving in my craft room, however, I went with the black/brown color. I also have the Itso containers from target, the exact same polka dot ones. I love how well these products work in craft spaces. You did a fabulous job putting your space together!
