One Day I Will Have My Own Craft Space
I’ve been hard at work with all things related to the Etsy Shop. Boxes have been ordered, wreath forms have been shipped, felt has been cut, bunting has been made and most of my packing materials are ready to go. I’ve been doing most of the work from the laptop on the couch, to the tiny kitchen table. And I mean tiny! I attempted to cut circles while watching some Netflix a few nights ago, and one wrong move meant a tower of felt circles came crashing down.
This all got me daydreaming about my future craft space, so I thought today I’d share some of my favorite office eye candy and ideas with you all. One of the first things I’d want is a floor to ceiling, or quite large, white dry erase board. I couldn’t find anything like this in a google search. The closest I found was Bower Power’s dry erase board. I have a tendency to write tons of notes and lists down, and then transfer them onto the chalkboard at home. But I’m not really a fan or writing on the chalkboard, since it gives me chills just thinking about accidentally touching it with one of my nails (is that weird?). Plus, every time one of my lists and/or notes are on the board, Travis always manages to draw male genitalia all over it. So sweet of him, I know…

Another item on my wishlist would be tons of shelving so I could easily organize ribbon, paints, washi tape, felt… etc. The shelves in this inspiration photo look cheap though, maybe plastic. I’d DIY myself some raw wood photo ledge-ish shelf’s, and maybe stain them a walnut-ish color.

This next image, I don’t have a single negative thing to say about. It is gorgeous and well done (probably because a magazine did the makeover). Here’s to hoping my future office/craft space has a closet!

What are your wants & needs for a craft/office space? Or what are some things you definitely DON’T need? I will never need filing space or binders, since I keep most important documents & record keeping in the cloud. I’m always terrified of a fire destroying everything, so I try to keep as many documents and pictures stored on the interwebz as I can.
