My Craft Room & Style Feature

Are you ready for a million and one photos???

So, I told you guys like a week ago that I would shoot my craft room, and I finally did!

First though, a STYLE FEATURE: casual.

{I have two before this one, but this one seemed more appropriate to this week, b/c I have been quite casual :)

Simple skinny jeans, Angels and Airwaves band shirt with a collar shirt underneath, green converse, and my favorite hair pin made by Missy Sue. And sporting my new glasses!

If you have not laid your taste buds on this, do it now! Amazing!!!
So for today...Bella helped me get together my wholesale order for Ruche! Below you will see what I am about to send off to be a part of Ruche.com, I almost cant believe it! I am so excited and I hope they do well for them!!! I will let you guys know as soon as I do when they are actually on the site!


And now for the crazy craft room! Just so you know, I have a lot of stuff in this room. If I had my dream studio, it would not be this cluttered! But I have to make it work somehow!

This is the big desk we just moved in last week, thanks dad!
I made that Violet Bella sign when I had my jewelry up at my old restaurant, then I used it as my banner when I did art shows, now its just decoration!

And of course, Bella had to come see what I was doing and sneak in the shot!
Sorry for the horrible lighting! I used this shoe organizer for my yarns and felt.

And theres my Hello Kitty stereo that is desperately trying to die on me.
Oh so blurry, sorry. My friend gave me the tall wire organizer thing, it was a huge blessing! I was able to put so much fabric in it! It stores most of my fat quarters and my vintage embroidered linens. And on top of it sits half of my mailers. The rest are in a huge box under the desk! The random boxes on the floor need out of there, but I dont know where to put them!
More and more fabric storage! It is piled to the ceiling!
Books, magazines and frames! And on top is a drawing I did of my mom in high school :)
Random pretties, and vintage doilies

my mom's pin cushions and her large yarn ball. and her vintage blue box. My aunt (her sister) gave me those awesome handmade granny stars!
He he, Bella again!
And theres the chair I recovered today!
Now this is where I am sitting right now, and most every morning! This is my office. It is suppose to be our dining room! Sorry, it was a bit messy today.
My inspiration board over head!

{And I am not even going to show you where I make the jewelry! It looks like a bomb went off! It is an eight foot fold up table behind our couch, in a corner, squished between a wall. I have just enough room to slither back and there and fit in a chair. It is so cluttered, but I just dont have anymore room in my house! I need a real studio!!!
Here is the chair I re-purposed today. It has been needing this for a long time! I just spray painted the wood black and cover the top with some cool vintage fabric. I love it now!
So there you go!

Oh and again, I cannot even believe, I already have 37 votes on The Lovelies! THANK YOU!!!! And theres 3 more days for my giveaway. See my posts believe to see about both of these things!

Peace,
Laura

  18. it's great to see your studio...i struggle with trying to organize everything in a tiny space and not make it look cluttered. but yours looks really cute!

  19. your craft room is so cool! It makes mine look tiny. When we buy our own house I want to completely design and decorate my sewing room.

  20. Your studio looks awesome, even though you've got lots of stuff, it looks really organized!! I saw the stool in the first picture and liked it, nice job on the revamping! Good idea with the yarn, my yarn stash is out of control right now because I don't have a proper place to store it, something like that is a great idea. That cracks me up that your dining room is your office, I've turned part of our bedroom into my space, (I would've used the dining room but we don't have one!) Love all of your pictures :)
