I ♥ to Cut, Paint, and Sew

Saturday, October 1, 2011

I have never really had a craft space. I kind of just did my craftiness wherever I found space at home. So all of my craft supplies were stuck in a corner in bags and boxes. 

So recently I decided to organize everything into kind of a crafty corner. Nothing fancy. Just an area (in my dining room) where I could sit down and hang out in my own creative world; just a table and some bins and some jars to hold things. Something simple until one day I have a whole area all my own.  

(Sorry for the dark camera phone pics)

Once I had my own space, I decided to try to cute it up a little with something that represented the space. Something neat and something EASY! So I took a break from my fall/halloween crafties and came up with these little framed words.

I bought three wooden frames from the dollar store and spray painted them white. Then I got three different scrapbook papers and cut them down to the size of the frame glass. 

I bought some alphabet stickers and added words that portray the function of the space. 

I put them back in the frames, hung them up, and that's it! A little boost to my simple crafty space!

(Excuse the tiles and skull.  Projects I'm working on)

This is where I party.


  1. Question: Are the letters on the fabric or on the glass?

  2. @Christa aka The BabbyMama Its actually scrapbook paper but the letters are directly on the paper :)

  3. What a great space! And, those pictures are so dang cute!!! I love them. This would work for so many things. It would be really cute with kids names too!
