Some More fun with CK...GIVEAWAY!

So here is one of the unpublished views of my craft room. This actually one of my favorite spots of my craft room, I add sewing to just about every project, so this area is often my go to place during my project.

The thing that I love the MOST about my craft room is that all of the materials were reclaimed or used. Together with my friends and family, we went to thrift stores, flea markets, antique stores and our local reclaimed building material store Resource. These places are a haven for creativity. This also makes for a very inexpensive yet eco-friendly approach to organizing. The shelves here are old cabinet doors with old brackets and old beams.

You may have also seen on Facebook that Megan Hoeppner was on Studio 5 KSL in Utah debuting the issue. Megan showcased a few ideas and rooms from the book, mine being one of them. So if you would like a sneak peek into where I create... here it is!


Take a minute to read the article and watch the video, it is a fun sneak into the issue as well as some creative ideas for storage.
