Welcome, dear friends!
It is our pleasure to invite you into
our new craft room!

Maybe you can see why it took us so long when you see
how much stuff we have!
At times it felt like working a puzzle, getting every piece in just the right spot.

The room used to be used for storage and was full of Christmas trees, holiday
decorations and furniture that was no longer used.  We had a dream to turn it
into our fantasy craft room and it was no small task!

Now, it is our vintage inspirational oasis!

There are all kinds of crafting represented in this room.  You may notice
the two sewing machine cases in the above photo and this lovely box of fat quarters.
We have yet to do any sewing, but we're ready should the mood strike!

The infamous 'Elizabeth' cabinets.  We were so lucky to find these
in an antique store.  They are cute as can be!

Lindsey found this wonderful set of dressers at a fun antique store that specializes
in items from the '30's to the '70's.  It is by Childcraft and we loved the colored drawers!
They are so perfect to hold scrapbooking supplies.

These little pink windows were so sweet, we wanted them to be
a focal point in the room.  The chalk board says 'Two Crazy Crafters'.
Of course, Lindsey made the 'autumn' banner.

Another angle of our room shows the two wall colors. 
I shared in an earlier post the exact colors we chose and we couldn't be happier
with it!

This picture shows some of Lindsey's Irmi collection.
Don't worry, she'll be sharing them closer up in more detail in a later post!

Here is Pink Puppy watching over us.  Love the way he looks
on top of Lindsey's cubes.  Don't you love the pretty paper lanterns she made?!

Lindsey gradually collected this wall of cubes from Micheal's when they were either
on sale or she had a 40% off coupon.  It took her awhile to collect them and then bang them
together.  If you have these too, you know what I mean.

This is just some of the vintage whimsy that we threw in to inspire us.
Sitting pretties as well as supplies.

Lindsey is a huge Tim Holtz fan.  She has many of his products, but one of the
first things we bought was his wonderful Distress Inks.
Just look at all the great colors!

We got the paper rack at a scrapbook store that was going out of business. 
You'd think with all those drawers and all those cubes, Lindsey wouldn't need
paper racks, too.  Wouldn't you?!

Don't worry, there'll be lots more pictures from our craft room in future posts.
We hope that you have enjoyed seeing what we have done.
Thank you for joining us in our craft room!
Have a wonderful day!
Twyla and Lindsey

Yvonne said...

What a wonderful craft room. I loved it all. Want one like it! Especially the vintage painted cabinet. Our local antique mall has a complete set of those cabinets and they are so wonderful. The only problem is they're $2,000.00 But they would make a wonderful craft station. Thanks for sharing.

I feel like I have organized and reorganized. I hope this will do it!!! Well worth waiting for and I am sure this represents hours and hours of work.

Twyla and Lindsey, your room is absolutely wonderful!!! I can just imagine the sheer delight that will be on your faces as you walk in there to work your projects!! I love how you incorporated all those fun storage pieces into your room: the picnic baskets, bread boxes, sewing boxes, tiered wire baskets, painted children's dressers and tables. Sooo fun!! All the little details and treasured vintage pieces work together to create a truly magical and inspirational space. WOW, I wish you could come to my house and help me figure out my office/sewing room. Thank you for sharing this with us!!

Karen Beth said...

Thank you so much for sharing the craft room. I love it. I am in the process of moving my craft room to a bigger space and deciding on what to do in it and the wall color. You have inspired me. I love your blog. I am a Barbie collector, so Wednesday is my favorite time to check your blog and see what you have posted. Thank you again.

I think more than anything what I love about the creation of this craft room is all the hours mom/daughter will spend making memories and gifts. Is there a corner to sit and knit?
Wonderful, and an amazing amount of organization and elbow grease!
Let the good times begin!

MaryEllen said...

Hey girls!
OMG!...looks like I picked a perfect time to visit!

I've totally enjoyed pouring over the every inch!
Best wishes to both of you for a job well done!
Love and BIG HUGS!

Wow! I just stumbled into your craft room. I can relate to it so much, but I marvel at how clean it is. You have inspired me to post my room to share with others, I got some great ideas from walking around your room. Nice to meet you two. Ciao!

Libbie said...

Paradise! I don't think any other word would do! I hope you are enjoying lots of time in there together! you girls are inspirational!

Holly- Girls At Heart said...

Woo- hoo! Here I am once again to see your craft room with FAST Internet! I'm justa click,click,clickin' away on the pics! Your baby planters make everything look so sweet! Mine are now divided between the craft room and the dinning room and they are always fighting over who get to be where! ;)

I LOVE that little pink curvy table with the glass knob! But I also love how you've mixed primary colrs in with the pastels. That's what I'm doing too and I'm so pleased that it works!

I started cleaning/organizing my craft room yesterday. I didn't get very far! I organized all my packing supplies- tissue, shred, bubble wrap. What a mess! If there were doors on my closet, they wouldn't be able to shut! How some women manage to have closets that can shut, is beyond me!

My poor shabby shelf has become a junk station. :( Maybe I'll get to it today after being inspired by your wonderful craft room!

I'd love to see pics of you two in there! ♥

Sorta Fairytale Girl said...

ohmigosh!! this room is amazing...i LOVE those "Elizabeth Cabinets"! how wonderful to have a daughter who loves crafts and vintage...i hope mine will someday - she's just 7 months now
