I am joining the Where Bloggers Create 2012 party!!! Last year I moved my crafting room from a small room downstairs to a larger room upstairs. I loved my small room, nice and cozy, but having a bigger room allows me to show off my favorite things. I even have enough room to have friends over to join me in crafting or sewing.
I took the doors off the closet and put in my Nana's desk and a dresser given to me by one of my flea market friends. I use Nana's desk as my office desk and the other for storage. I took out the clothes rod and put a curtain rod in it's place to hang my ribbons on.
The garland above the alcove holds the tags from the latest swaps. I use the plastic boxes that lettuce comes in to store my projects, trims, fat quarters and ribbon scraps.
The garland above the sewing table holds the invitations made by my friend Maria..AKA Maria Stewart!!
On the left is my wall ironing board and my sewing area.
This desk belonged to my Dad, a little white paint and it works.
Scissors and hole punches ready and waiting.
The bookcase holds a few books, my Mary Poppins doll and some fabric squares.
A heart shaped doll and broach swapped with Fran who blogs at Dolls Are My Canvas, a firecracker created by Elizabeth who blogs at Creative Breathing, and a Santa checking his list created by Laurie who blogs at Magpie Ethel.
This room also doubles a bedroom when the girls come home. It's the last one chosen because it takes a little effort to pull out the futon. The quilt above the futon is one I purchased at a quilt auction 22 years ago. It's called the Domes of Santa Clara County which is where I live.
The Domes represented are the Santa Clara Mission, the Fruit Orchards, the Unitarian Church, the County Court House, both of which were damaged and red tagged during the 1989 earthquake, the Lick Observatory, the hanger at Moffet Field Naval Base, and the Satellite Dish at Stanford University.
I love color and I don't mind a mix of bright colors.
Tags created and traded for swaps.
Baskets hold paper treasures used in crafting..an apron created by Renee who blogs at My Vintage Mending, and one given as a birthday present from one of my flea market friends.
Well, that's it for the crafting room at the Xavier Ct House. Thanks for visiting and thanks to Karen at My Desert Cottage for hosting!!
