I stumbled on your blog via SCS and am so glad I found you! You do lovely work. And I so identify with your comments about your father's workshop. I had a dad like that too! So loved spending time in his shop--it just made me happy.

I love your craft room. Organization is something I am working on, but seems to be very elusive! I refuse to give up. I also love the work you do with your cards. Very inspiring! Thanks for sharing.

Wow! Your space is fantastic! I actually need an idea for my punches, I don't like the curtain rods so much -- but I do have a CD tower I could use a la yours! I'm glad I checked it out! Thanks for sharing your solutions!

Thank you for the tour of your tool shed Angela! It is neat to know where all those wonderful creations are being produced! I especially liked seeing your stamps! They look wonderful, seems like the "older" ones really are some of the nicest! And of course enjoyed the final photo! Yep, I can so relate! I try to keep it straight, but somebody keeps messing it up daily!

I LOVED seeing the picture of your tool shed in its NORMAL mode. In fact I had to show it to my husband (In defense of my crafting area that most always looks like it has been stirred with a spoon or that a bomb has just exploded all my crafting tools everywhere!) I also loved seeing where you create your wonderful work that is so inspiring to us all! You have a GREAT space to work in!

By the way I come to CT to see my son about once a year. He works as an engineer for GE and lives in Wallingford. You live in such a beautiful state! Last year when I came he took me to the fair and also to see Haley (the owner) at CropStop in RI. It was so cool to meet her. I don't know if you have ever ordered from her, she is an online store only. (www.cropstop.com) She has a great story...started her business in a cardboard box under her bed! She has grown HUGE and does an amazing business in european sales.

I love your work...thank you for sharing the pictures of your "creatng" space!

Hugs,

Peggy (Dollar)

What a great craft space! I need to post a pic of mine, so I can remember what it looke like what it does get straightened up, and might encourage me to keep it neater than I do. My space looks just like your bottom pic right now, after just finishing up making two cards, must stop procratinating, and get off the computer and start putting things away...(More fun making the cards...smile)

JulieMc said...

You have a terrific space for creating... {I've got to find one of those spool chests!} I love all the inspiration you share on SCS - thanks for sharing your creative space as well!

Knowing how awesome your cards and seeing your space. I couldn't imagine you actually working in that space..I was feeling so uuuummm disorganizingly cluttered! Thank you so much for the last pic!

Lovely space.

Peggy said...

OMGosh I lOVE it that just about every space is covered with something in that last picture... it soooo looks like my creative space! I have to show it to my husband!He has given up on my space being neat and clean.

Your total work space is awesome and your punch area ROCKS and that antique piece with the pull out drawers are soooo perfect for stamps.

I can tell your space is well thought out and it is one that we would all LOVE to have!

Thank you for sharing the pictures...

Now, *your* craft room is so much prettier than mine! I like how organized it all is, too. Organization is one of my 'hobbies'. ;) I spy the same grapes and pear stamps (in one of your wooden stamp drawers) that I have! Thanks for sharing your studio with us. :)

Tee Hee... I LOVE your Honesty :-) Amazing the creations that you can design from a messy desk :-) Your Tool Shed is beautiful and your father would be proud of you I am sure :-) TFS Angela

Chriss Blagrave said...

Very cool space Angela! Love all of the wood storage and I too love the last shot ;)
Keep on crafting!

Kirstin Guerra said...

You really do have everything nice and organized. It really looks like you have anything from paper to staplers all categorized. This is something I would love to do with all of my crafting and sewing stuff. Where would you say I start first? http://www.alphaindustries.com.au/toolsheds.html
