i-space with Shemaine

Hello Imaginisce friends! It's my turn to share my crafty space. Now don't laugh but my space is in the dining room of our Los Angeles apartment.

Living in the city can be tough at times with limited space and the fact that our building is 40+ years old. We have a 3 bedroom apartment and when we moved in our high top dining room table no longer fit in the new dining room. We were using it for storage and I was scrapping out of my daughter's closet (which wasn't really fun) until my husband sweetly suggested I make it over into my space. So I ordered some curtains and got out the Cricut and some vinyl and made it my own.

This bulletin board serves as the place where I hang mementos and some of my photos that I don't end up using go. 

This was an outdoor plant hanger that my sister in law picked up and a yard sale and is perfect to hold my Tim Holtz distress inks, Stickles and variety of stamp pads. This is by far my favorite storage idea.

I love vintage anything and these cute jars were given to me by my Mom. I keep loose flowers in them and my Martha Stewart micro beads. 

Since the building is old it has this cute little cupboard that used to be home to an ironing board. Back in the day many apartments came with an cupboard like this one. A previous tenant must have made some shelves in here which seemed perfect for holding all of my ribbon. I must admit I do have a serious ribbon really?

Here's how I store my i-rock tools and accessories. I picked up this jewelry organizer with a coupon from Michaels. It snaps closes and has grooves to hold each container in place.

I keep all my misc. products in this little cupboard.

So that's a peek into my scrap space. I really love that now when the kids go to sleep I can hang out as long as I like and my hubby is just across the room in his recliner watching T.V. There have been many nights I'll be crafting away until the wee hours and I find him asleep in that chair.

Have a crafty day!

What a great space Shemaine!

Liz said...

I wish I knew exactly what the container is that you have your iRock in - it's pretty neat - I still keep the gems in their tubes because I am terrified I will spill them.
