Updated Craft Room

Happy Summer! today is the first day of summer, it is hot but tomorrow we are expecting a cool down. I want to go to Old Sacramento this weekend for dinner at the Crab Shack, we will see though because Steve either has arthritis in his hip or a pinched nerve or both he has been in a lot of pain since making my craft room make over, I feel so bad for him. He is expecting some test results back tomorrow. He never misses work, but missed a day of work this week because it hurt him so bad.  

Thanks to my husband I am now very happy crafter with a lot more work space. It looks really nice I think....well see for yourself. It's really nice to be able to have all that work space for my many crafts!

I only have half the curtains made for the room at this time. I used that wonderful cute zigzag fabric I showed off in a recent post to make the little sweet curtains that go great with my color scheme. I just need to finish the other side and I need to adjust the one hanging because the zigzag is a bit off and Not perfectly strait, that will drive me crazy.

The photos were taken at different times, so some show the picture of the little girl on the floor and some on the wall and some show the vases empty and others there are flowers in the vase, some are day and some at night.

 I just made these cute felt daisies today they are so cute I put them into a vase on my craft table. 

 These are called Loopy Flowers aren't they adorable? I made these with felt as well for on top the cubicle cabinet by Martha Stewart.

I have put off the purse I was going to make for now and I today I made the felt flowers using dies from My Favorite Things to put in the vases in my craft room. I will talk about that next post, many have asked me to show how to make the cute felt flowers.

This photo above is of the new crochet afghan I am making. I am really crazy for Chevron and Zigzag right now. These colors are bright, they remind me of the 70's but Steve says it looks more like Native American. Hmm..... I don't know, I was trying to go for the 70's look.
Did I mention how hot is it to crochet an afghan in the summer with Hot Flashes! 
Pretty soon that afghan is going to get longer and it will be so hot in my lap with two Chihuahua's.

Craft Room Update Again 4-9-2013

So now the work table wraps all around the wall like an L. Perfect!

We moved last March of 2014 and so my craft room is smaller, and has a bit of the same look but a newer look as well. I had to make this space work for me. It's hard to believe that it's almost been a year we've moved. Wow that was a lot of work, remodeled this entire house, yet I still had time to craft!

My husband just made these shelfs for me this Month Jan 2015 for my sewing supplies.

Behind this closet is custom shelfing.
I'd show the other side but I have the dogs crate in front of that side of the door temporarily.

October 2016 New Upgrade to Craft Room

Steve made me an extension to my shelfs, I love it!

  1. Happy Summer Kat!
    So sorry to hear Steve has something going on with him :( Your craft room looks great! You sure do have lots of storage now! The loopy flowers are adorable! Hope you have a wonderful Thursday. Hugs, Dru

  2. Hi Kat! Everything looks great and what a nice space for you to craft- I would want a TV, too. :) Sorry Steve is in pain. Yes, Culver City is close to Santa Monica. There is a closer beach- Playa del Rey and Venice but Santa Monica is the next one going north. I went to Santa Monica beach all the time when I was growing up. There are many other beautiful beaches in SoCal- all the way from San Diego to Santa Barbara- great beaches for enjoying the surf. The further south you go, the warmer the water gets, too. (((Hugz)))

  3. It looks great! What a happy place to do your crafting! My daughter has that same picture of the little girl and puppy! It was a gift from one of her great aunts. Only her frame is different.

  4. Love, love, love this room! You are blessed with a wonderful husband. I hope Steve feels better soon.

  5. nice post thanks for sharing...looking for to visit more blessings

  6. Wonderful room makeover!Love it& your flowers! I hope your husband is better soon, will pray for his recovery.


Have a wonderful day! ~Kat
