Clean & Scentsible Crafty Space - Guest Post


Jenn is a crafting rockstar and her craft room just goes to show that she is serious about this crafting business! I'm seriously so jealous of her space (where she gets to add pops of pink!). Come see where she set up shop and how she keeps things organized!

Hello Poofy Cheeks Readers!!  My name is Jenn.  I blog over at Clean and Scentsible and love to share my crafty ideas, organizational tips, DIY projects, and fun family activities.  I'm so excited to be here today to show you my little craft space.

As a Mom of two boys, I wanted my craft space to be nice and girly.  The room started off as a totally unfinished room in our basement {you can see a before picture here}.  My husband and Dad put up some drywall and added some laminate flooring and then it was all mine!  I painted the room a soft grey and stenciled the back wall to jazz things up a bit.  And since I am not allowed to use pink anywhere else in the house, I added pink accents whenever possible!

I use the desk for crafting, computer work and, more recently, sewing.  The tins and spice rack on the wall are from Ikea and hold my little scrapbooking embellishments.  My small stationary supplies {tacks, paper clips, staples, etc.} are tucked in the cubbies in the desk in plastic bead containers.

I have the majority of my storage along one of the side walls.  All of the white storage cubes are from Michaels and have been purchased over time.  They are often 40% off and you can sometimes snag a 50% coupon every now and then.  They work great for storing paper, embellishments, tools, etc.  I generally have all of my stickers and other embellishments sorted by season or event {i.e. summer, Christmas, birthdays...} and the drawers are all labelled.  The big basket on top holds all of my larger random craft supplies.

On the opposite wall I have this file folder/shelving system.  It was purchased from Target online for about $60 {Sorry, it is now discontinued}.  I then added the vinyl Create lettering.

When I was initially clearing out my room, I had a ton of magazines and books marked with sticky notes highlighting projects or ideas that I liked.  They were taking up way too much space and it was not a very functional system if I was looking for a particular idea.  So I labelled each of the file folders with a particular subject or Season, tore out the pages, and filed them away.  Favorite craft and decorating books were stored below in the shelving. 

I had lots of fun creating some projects to decorate the room including the Color Outside of the Lines canvas, the magnetic dry erase board, and some cork board flower tacks.

I hope you have enjoyed my little tour.  If you get a chance, I would love for you to drop by Clean and Scentsible and say hello sometime.  

Thank-you so much to Kelsey for having me and hosting this great series!
