Look Into my Craft Closet-- My hideout!

I am going to give you a peek into my craft closet.  I used to have 1/2 of a bedroom to do my sewing until it started getting in the way of doing homeschool lessons.  I needed a new space!

I moved everything into a large walk in closet (Yes, I have to share it with my hanging clothes).

This is my little hide out!!
I am currently working on some quilt blocks.
I used the upper shelves to store my crafting books, notebooks and stationary.
This is also my teacher desk.... where I plan homeschool lessons

I keep all of my childhood teddy bears up on these shelves... they are safe up here.
(sorry this pic turned out blurry) :(

I am slowly adding more pink to my space.  So far I have these pink boxes (Target dollar section)

I got these pink buckets to hold all of my tiny block pieces (also Target dollar section)

I also added a lamp to my closet for those time when I want to sew at night or on cloudy days.
Yes, I even have pink paper and and pink massage ball (my neck get sore looking down at quilt blocks

This is my "they love me" board.  Cards from friends and family. 
Do you see my vintage hanky??  I love old pretty hankies!!

These were my grandmothers quilting pins.  I love thinking of her when I am quilting .

I just got this at Thanksgiving... great for store all sorts of things (I have it full to overflowing) :)

The pin cushion was my grandmothers.  The jewelry box was Grandma's, too. When she died I asked for one thing... her jewelry box.  I have fond memories of sneaking out rings and necklaces from this box. 

Well, there you go.... my craft closet.  I hope you enjoyed the tour.  It won't stay this clean... in a couple of days it will covered in fabric.  I immerse myself in my projects. :0

  5. You have a great craft closet. I'm retiring in March and plan to set up a place in my basement for my crafts, florals and decorating accessories. I can't wait to get everything together in one place. I'll share it when I do.

    Have a great week.
