Creative Spaces Volume 3

Hey ya’ll.  Back in February the sweet ladies from Paper Crafts came to shoot my studio space for Volume 3 of their special edition Creative Spaces Magazine.  The magazine was released today in craft stores, and online and I was so proud to see my studio in the same pages as some of my talented blogging friends such as Kristi and Kelli from Lolly Jane, (hiya ladies!). The issue is 132 pages of pure inspiration.  If you are considering renovating or redoing your craft space you have to pick up the issue before you begin.  It is packed with organization ideas, great use of space, color and patterns.  And on page ____ you will see my mug and studio space.


My studio space is by far my favorite room in the house – and the one where I spend most of my time.  I am a big fan of hidden storage so I built 9 enclosed cabinets to house all my craft stash.


But the biggest and most pinned project in all the room is my large craft island.  Craft island {giggle} – yes that is totally a word. I would rather have a craft island forever than a week visit to any other island.

However, my favorite project in the room is my hidden paint storage shelf.  You will have to click over to see what is behind it.

Also if you hover over “my home tour” in the header and click on craft studio you can see all the little details of the space as well.


Now hop on over to Haeley at Design Improvised to see her space – which made the cover of the magazine!Pinnable panel_CSv3

  • Susan Steinke

    I thought I was more a fan of open storage in the craft room but after seeing your room, the closed storage is really nice! I have seen your craft table before, I probably have it pinned!

  • Paula DiGiovanni

    those cabinets are great, so much storage. Can I come craft in your space ( or move it on over to my house)!

    • Beckie

      Girl, you are more than welcome to come craft with me if you are ever in Indy. I am serious!

  • Doris Cote

    The cabinets are so great! I have two upstairs rooms that I could do that in.

    • Beckie

      I would LOVE to know if you do, Doris!

  • Marianne #6701

    Now that is some storage space!!

    • Beckie

      And would you believe it’s almost full???

  • Haeley Giambalvo

    Beckie, first of all those cabinets are genius! With an ever-growing stash of craft supplies I think I will be in need of some more serious storage like that soon. I love that hidden paint storage shelf. It makes me so happy to see paints organized in a rainbow of colors. Secondly, thanks so much for the shout out – I have had so many of your great readers visit my site. It is truly appreciated! I’m honored to be included in a magazine with such talented crafters like yourself!

    • Beckie

      You are so sweet, Haeley! I am thrilled we could be featured together. Hugs!

      Thank you, Nikki. Lots of storage was definitely on my must-have list when designing the space.

  • Rebecca Ednie

    Wow, very cool space!

    • Beckie

      Thanks, Rebecca!
