  1. I am lucky enough to have my own scrap room. It’s small, but it does it’s job quite nicely. I love your videos and your blog!

  2. I always craft in my living room bcuz all my scrapbooking stuff is in the living room in one corner! Or maybe a corner and some other corners.. Haha but I jus take out what I need and craft on the table or ground or couch!!

  3. I don’t actually have a dedicated craft room but I do have a large built-in desk and cabinet area at one end of our hallway that I use for crafting. I also craft on the kitchen table when I need more room to spread out or when I am sharing my supplies with my 4 year old daughter who is a stamper! Haha!! Thanks for the peek at your creative space…it’s not messy at all!

  4. Wow, first of all I must say that your craft room isn’t messy at all!!! Well, except for the bags of yarn..haha! I only wish I had a wall of storage as nice as yours! I share my craft room with a guest bed and have way too much stuff crammed into too small a space. I also have cardstock and stamps and ink stashed all over the house in nooks and cubbies…and my die cut machine and dies in the living room coffee table drawers. I have only purchased furniture that can double as storage because I don’t have enough storage in my actual craft room. Thank you for your awesome weekly giveaways and peek into your craft room !

  5. I have a (usually very messy) craft room in my basement – used to be a play room for my (now grown up) children. Fortunately, I can just close the door so that no one but me can see the clutter.

  6. Because I am disabled by chronic, incurable, congenital illness and pain, I am forced to do most of my paper crafting, card making, and art journaling in my adjustable bed or, on a good day, my comfy sofa in my den. I do have to use my only dining table (which is really more of a small breakfast nook table) for die cutting via my Big Shot and also for stamping when I need the stamped images to be crisp. I have even rigged up a box-like contraption in which I can use my ink sprays and mists while in bed and without getting ink on my bed sheets and covers. So I do whatever I can when I am feeling well enough to do it. I do wish I could sit at my table for more than 5 mins at a time though because I love die cutting and embossing. And I would love to break open some serious paint and get my hands messy, but I just can’t do that in my bed or on my cream-colored sofa. Wishing everyone good luck and thanks to Sami for this giveaway! Cheers…. πŸ™‚

  7. I have a craft room upstairs. In summer, it’s too hot to craft unless I do it early. I don’t have AC πŸ™ But I’m very thankful for having my own craft room!!!!

  8. Awesome giveaway…I so miss getting my monthly shipment of SP&Company stamps! Would love to win those! πŸ™‚ Glad you are feeling better and meeting people!

  9. Sounds like you’re doing great, Sami! You’re craft room looks way better than my craft room at the moment! You’ve inspired me to try to clean it up this week! Maybe we can compare before-and-after pics!!

  10. I think your room looks good, but my space is always cluttered! I mainly scrap in our office/ scrap room! Glad you are feeling better!

  11. I thought your Craft room was so nice. Mine is just a mess. Wish I had more room, especially since I am crocheting to. Yarn takes up a lot of room. I always crochet in my craft room. But when I do crafts with my Grand Kids, we always do it at the table or coffee table. Thanks so much for the chance to win. :0)

  12. So glad you’re feeling better. I scrap in my living room floor, I have to pick up after every session. So, I love tips on carry and go ideas.

  13. Congratulations on the Baby news….I’m so happy for you and your hubby! Thank you for doing the giveaway, I am a big fan of your stamps, I was so sad when you discontinued them : ( I am like you in the sense that when my craft room is a mess, I do not feel crafty……hang in there!

  14. Glad you’re getting out and making friends! Good luck with your room! It doesn’t look that bad so I’m sure you will knock it out quickly! πŸ™‚

  15. Thanks for doing a giveaway! I am lucky to have my own craft room. So I can mess it up as much as I want and NOBODY can complain about it! LOL! πŸ™‚

  16. I am lucky enough to have my own room. However I tend to bring things downstairs to scrap at the table where my husband is.

  17. Great scrap room and I am getting a new room so mine is a mess right now as well. I can’ create in a messy room so I understand. TFS

  18. I don’t think it’s all that messy. You are acquiring quite the yarn though. Please show off your projects as you complete them. πŸ™‚

  19. Your scraproom looks awesome! I didn’t think it looked bad at all just a few things on your table! Thank you for the chance to win!

  20. I think your craftroom is pretty organised. It is sunny and bright and if its is only your table needs sorting you are doing great!

  21. I don’t have a craftroom (yet) so everything is scattered all around the house…
    So your craftroom looks really tidy compared to my mess πŸ˜€
    Good luck with crocheting/knitting

    HF, and craft on πŸ™‚

  22. I am lucky enough to have a designated room to craft in…however, I find myself coming out to the dining room every now and then too! lol Like you, I need to go through my stuff terribly!! Thanks for the chance to win more goodness!!! Take care!
