Creative Spaces and a Giveaway!!

I'm so very excited for the new Creative Spaces Magazine!
I love looking at how everyone organizes and decorates their special space!!
My studio and scrapbook room where featured in last years...
I had so much fun getting ready for the magazine photo shoot!
Here are a few pictures of my space...
My loft area is where I scrapbooking and work creating items with my new designs too.
My sewing table...



These doors go from my studio to my work office...
This picture is from my office looking into my studio...
(Can you see my little lab-mix, Savannah, in this picture?)
Once in my office, the door with the dress on it, is a little half bath.
The other door is the upstairs furnace (nothing exciting). 
I love my big ole' farm table for my work desk.




That's my creative space! But with that said, I'm actually re-doing it.
I get so antsy and Pinterest is killing me when it comes to 
studio ideas!! LOL! 

Creating Keepsakes is going to let me giveaway the new 
Creative Spaces Magazine.
Leave me a comment about what you love about your creative space and I'll 
pick ONE winner on Wednesday. 

(YOU MUST CHECK BACK TO SEE IF YOU ARE THE WINNER.)

Also here is a sneak peak of the new Creative Spaces:

I loveeeeeee your space!!! I am LOVING my new crafty space!! Finally I have an area to myself that I can still be around the family!!

Sophia said...

Loved seeing all yours. I wish I had a place that was half nice as yours...I need a fairy Godmother to wave her magic wand on my room to make it look beautiful, so that I can feel inspired and want to create again...thanks for a chance to win ♥

What a wonderful craft space you have! I love that I have a craft space although I would like it to be bigger. I just reorganized it and moved some stuff around so I really like how easy it is to work now.

I love your space! I am just happy to have a space! It is big enough to be a combination crafting space and workout room. These are both important in my life so I wanted to accomodate both. ~Saundra :)

Melanie said...

Goodness, you have a TON of space! It's fun to see your personality shine through in how it is all set up. I have a little space in our bonus room, which I like because then I can work on projects but still interact with my kids while they are playing :)

Kim said...

I love that I have a space that is all mine!!

My husband built me an awesome work station at the perfect height for me with a huge workspace and ltos of storage.

arlsmom aka Lynda said...

Oh I'll be looking for this issue because I want to redo my space. What I love about my space is that I have cabinets to store things in...also what makes me kind of hoard things too...so I think it's time to clear out things and reorganize so I use what I have. Thank you for the chance to win!

Michele said...

Oh How I love your big Farm Table! Fun to see your personality shine through your creative space. I like my space because it is in the downstairs of our house in 1/2 of our rec room. The other half is the TV/Toy area. My kids were given their own craft table about 2 years ago that sits behind me. So whenever "Mom" goes downstairs, the kids follow. :) It's a joint effort. (But in the scheme of things, looking for ideas to redo my space. It's a bit small, or I am collecting too many things. :) )

Gorgeous space Nikki!!! I love that my space is part of my main family room....perfect for a family with 2 young boys....I am able to be and see them at all times!!

Ladybug68 said...

I don't really love it yet. It is in bins in my bedroom, but one of these days I will have a space all my own!!

Allisa said...

There are two things I love most about my craft room....one the custom made ink pad holder, which holds my ink pads, reinkers and pens all in the same spot and two having a door! I love to be able to close the door to all the outside distractions!

Joan V said...

Let's just call it my GIRL CAVE. I am a basement stamper in the back storage area. UGH. But, I love that it is my own area.

antenucci said...

I love the loft area, how cool. I am blessed with a room of my own, but we can always dream!

Sue D said...

Wonderful creative space. My favorite thing about my craft room is the bench where I stand to stamp.

Connie Mercer said...

My favorite thing about my scrappy room ~ is it is my room. I have vintage goodies all around me, things that I adore and that makes me want to create. Love your space nikki!!! and Congrats for the magazine article!!:):) Happy for YOU!!!

Jean said...

Wow - so pretty!! My space is not quite what I would like it to be but it works! I just love that I have a space to play in!

fong33 said...

I wish I had just a part of your great space. My space doesn't exist as it is all part of the family room. I do have a couple of shelves that I am able to store my stuff on.

Karen AKA Soccerboyzmom said...

I love that my son created my space which is a corner in the garge and he listened to me for lots of cupboard space. He measured the table top and had it cut and installed it and lots of lights. He has moved out so I think I will move back in the house and need some help with the room.

Karen (karey2005) said...

I love having a place where I can close the door and get lost in my scrappi-ness for a little while. Like the other Karen, I also love that my son helped me put it together. (It's his old room, and he helped with it before leaving for the Army. I love everything about it!!!

Linh C. said...

Well, currently, my creative space is my dining room table. I guess what I like most about it is that I can spread out my project and as I walk through the dining room to get here and there in the house, I can look at my project and see what I can add or take away...you know, fiddle with it until it's perfect. :)

Hi Nikki, I had to give up "My Art Room" because my sister and her granddaughters moved in with us after Superstorm Sandy. My sister lost EVERYTHING she owned and is slowly getting her house fixed. To due my scrapbooking I now use tons of plastic containers to store and sort my materials. Artbin has it hands down as far as storage for supplies and finished product. As soon as my sis gets her house (and life) back I plan on re-doing my room.

Love your scrap room!!
Very pretty!
Congrats on the article!!
I'm thankful that I have a scrap space so I can keep all my scrap goodies in one place.

Jan Garber said...

With the holidays, my scraproom went into neglect and dismantled state. I use an antique library table and i LOVE it, too! I would love to have a space like yours! Maybe some day I'll straighten out this mess!

suey04 said...

I love the 6ft folding table that I got and the little drawers that I have put on the table!!

Lindsey said...

I love the new storage I have come upon.

Beatrice Lawson said...

I love that it is a big room, so I have a desk for my computer, a smaller desch for the Cricut and bug and various tools and a huge folding table to make a mess on. But.... There is no organization to the madness so the book would come in really handy!

Ellen Jarvis said...

My favorite part of my craft room (the Paper Jungle") is that it is upstairs and far away from the main living area of our home, and nobody but me goes up there to my sanctuary! I am in the process of redoing my craft space and I have been waiting oh-so-impatiently for Creative Spaces to be available to buy. (I'd love to win an advance copy! I am SO into instant gratification!! LOL). Today I was soooo sick of a couch in my Jungle (so ick and hopelessly large, biting into a flat surface for crafting) that I literally threw the 250-pound couch right down the stairs so a charity can come pick it up on Thursday. I hauled a table upstairs and put a new, huge wide format printer in its place ...... so steps are underway!

Fondly,
Ellen (CardMonkey)

I like the fact that I HAVE a creative space the most - it makes such a welcome change from scrapping on the dining room table and having to clear everything away!
Thanks for the photos of your lovely, open and spacious crafting room, and for the chance to win the special issue!

Nicole said...

I will be moving soon and a big craft room will be on the top of the priorities!! I can't wait to reorganize my room and new inspiration would be great!!

Dorina D said...

Your spaces are gorgeous (and bigger than my house, I thik) Love that though my space is small, it's upstairs out of the way and it doesn't matte how messy it gets when I'm crafting. In the process of building a small custom shelf unit for baskets and a top wide enough to use for die cutting and binding and getting things off the floor. Always looking for great space saver ideas for this small area.

Kim B. said...

You have a beautiful space!!! We converted one of the upstairs bedrooms into a craft room for me. I have cute white storage cabinets and I have it decorated with artwork from some of my previous foster kids.

eunice said...

Downsized "temporarily" to a small apt. Would love to have a craft space. Now everything is just stored and I pull it out to work on while sitting on the couch or kitchen table, then put it all away again. Maybe someday. . . .

Lindzie said...

I love that I can escape to my space. But usually only for 10 minutes at a time :)
