craft spaces galore

I am in desperate need of an office/craft room/art studio/play space. Right now I have stacks and piles of STUFF in our bedroom/nursery (organized chaos i like to call it) and i'm using our dining table (that's in our living room) for a sewing table at the moment. My 8 month old is just now starting to crawl and get into my STUFF so I keep moving it out of the way, but there's really no where to put it! I know we won't be here forever, so hopefully the next place we get will offer me some space to craft to my fullest. Until then, a girl can dream, right?!

Here is some inspiration for crafting spaces…

i know i've blogged about this one before, but i just can't get enough!!! i LOVE it!

 how beautiful is this?!

Some things I would love my craft room/studio to include are:
• a comfy chair
• desk for my computer and 'real' work space/office
• file drawers
• a table for my sewing machine
• ironing board
• cork board for inspiration and pictures
• a LARGE table for Earl (he's my rotary paper cutter) and for cutting fabric… it would be really cool to have a 'ditch' for cutting material in a straight line, like at a fabric store!
• LOTS of drawers for fabric
• LOTS of shelving/drawers for collage paper, scrapbook paper, envelopes, etc
• ribbon and thread holders
• my easel and a side table for my palette, brushes and water

Ok, I think I'm done. I could go on and on!

So, there you have it… I can't wait for the day! I realize that day might not come within the next 5, 10, 15 years, but I will REALLY appreciate it when it does! In God's time :)

Do YOU have a craft room or inspiration/ideas for a craft room? Please share!
