CHERRYALLIE ~ Hope you get a designated space soon. In the previous place we lived most of my stuff was in the LR, not much room elsewhere.

I do not have a craftroom, but crafts all over our one bedroom apartment. I have most of my paper crafting things in a three drawer tier behind our desk upstairs. I have my current scrapbooking project on a tv tray in front of the love seat and some crochet by the couch in front of the tv. I'm ready to move into a larger space with my DH soon. Hopefully then I can have more dedicated space. Oh and some of my supplies are on the floor of my clothes closet.

Thanks for your good wishes!

I would like to try out either the knook or do some quilling on some cards. I need to do about 4 cards - "Thank You" and "Get Well Soon" cards..

I have been crocheting/knitting amongst other crafts since I was 10. My grandmother taught me. She was an avid crafter, too. I turned 65 today, so about 55 years ago.

i do have a craft/scrap room! it's my brother's old bedroom. i have a craft table with shelving on the wall above it that holds many items...ink pads, markers, sprays, etc. i have a small side table w/drawers and my paint rack & scrap tote is on that. i have some free standing shelves with my original cricut, my big shot, my cinch and also my clear stamps, blocks and extra paint rack. the bigger shelf unit has papers, SU stamps, mags, photos. My computer desk is here with a side shelf for my camera, paint brushes, more photos. the printer shelf has the printer, paper and my scrapbooks. i set up a smaller desk for my 9 yr old niece so she can join me at crafts...on top of that one is more paper and my wood mounted stamps. The closet holds wood surfaces to paint, CTMH accessories, stamping stuff, chipboard, etc.

This room is NOT very big...i barely have room for my 2 desk chairs. It's also a work in progress...i am still moving stuff around to get the most of the space. Someday when it is all done i want to post a video on YouTube!

I live in a 2 bedroom apartment by myself, so my spare room is my craft room. When I moved in I had a hard time deciding whether the larger room would be my bedroom or my craft room. I chose bedroom but am currently rethinking that!

Well, it's a work in progress. I have a large wall unit that spans 2 walls and a corner unit connecting them. I also have a small table with 2 legs on wheels as a work space. The wall units have alternating cupboards, shelf (occupied by drawer units for paper storage), drawers, shelf, and cupboards. The corned unit stores a ton of stuff.

Next step is to rotate the wall unit 180 degrees (that will be "fun"), oust the hide a bed and bring in my computer desk and computer.

My husband and I used to share a room - my beading and his computer/guitar stuff but we were always encroaching into each other's space so I decided that the spare bedroom was mine. I painted it tangerine and let the 4 walls depict my different personalities/moods. On the big wall, I hand-painted a black-eyed Susie flower because my dad said I was named after that flower. Over my watercolor/drawing table, I stenciled bluebirds and flowers, because I volunteer for the bluebird project and add how many eggs/babies are born each year into the national database. To the right of my drawing table is a desk where I have all of my polymer clay stuff. On the 3rd wall I free-drew some swoosh lines and other semitry. The 4th wall is mostly taken up by a big window.

I have an 8' table under the black-eyed susie flower where I do my beading and have all of my beads separated into drawers that hang on the wall with a moveable storage container on 1 side and on the other, is where I store all of my findings so they're easy to get to. As I think of projects to do, I put all of the materials for each in ziploc bags and put them in a pretty basket until I have a chance to make the project.

It gets messy sometimes - I think that's because of my creative side. I start looking at what I have and the ideas start shooting out and I start pulling out beads, etc. to see if my ideas look as good on the design board as they do in my head.

Do you have a craft room? (Describe your space.)

I have what I call my craft corner. The room is shared w/ DH and all his computer "junk" and all our movies and games.
I have a L shaped desk that sits in my little corner nicely.
The top shelf is my paper and bead storage, and my larger paper trimmer.
The side shelves have my pens, notebooks, paper clips, etc.
On my desk is all my ribbon, a crate of stuff I'm sorting (still), and my 5in Xyron. And my monitor for the computer. The tray holds mouse and keyboard, and a folder (for scrap paper).
Under the desk are two 3 drawer containers holding punches, scissors, adhesives, stamps, ink, embellishments, and clips for hair bows.
Also under the desk is a pile of various size frames and wreaths, a few empty photo books, and 2 craft books.

My crafting started when I was just a small child, but my papercrafting start happened in 2006 when I decided it was time to start fulfilling my dream to learn about rubber stamping. The next year Stampin' Up! came to Australia and I joined. I've never looked back. I quickly added scrapbooking to my paper crafting, then when SU! got fabric I added quilting. I really need a couple of dedicated crafting rooms but make d with half a room :)

I've been crafting since I was around 8 yrs old. It was just something done in our family. If it's a hand craft I probably know how to do it. My favorite, however, is quilting. At times I stray from that and work on x-stitch or tatting, on rare occasion knitting or crochet. My quilting/craft room was taken over when my son moved back to the house after his divorce. He's slowly getting back on his feet and spending less and less time here.

I used to have an awesome one in my previous home; the new home is much smaller and I am still trying to adapt the "guest"room into the best possible sewing room. It's getting there; just added a day bed which opened up the floor space, and I am now putting together storage units. Hoping it will be done my November 1st...so I can get my crafting back in gear!!!

I dont have a scrap room, but in the summer my husband fixed a scraping area for me in our bedroom. Our bedroom has a conversation area separated by an open arch, we used it for storage. It is about 6x20'. It has my storage cubes from Micheal's and all my other stuff including a regular table and a sewing table, which I can open for extra table space. I love my new space!

i have always been creative and liked to do all kinds of things. i would have to say my grandmother was who started me she liked to crochet blankets. she showed me how to make a chain and i just went from there no formal instruction or any books to go by. I use to make dresses for barbie dolls. also when i was young i would do paint by number sets over the summer break. I use to love to draw i got that from my mom she is good if you can get her to sit and do it. then i became interested in cake decoration took some classes in that and did that for awhile out of school . I think i really should have keep at that i was pretty good and enjoyed doing it but at the time (17 years ago) i didnt think there was money in it how wrong i was lol. then i became big into quilting that is my passion and relaxation. I do scrapbook when i have time I have a cricket i got for christmas havent had time to use it. Kinda feel bad i havent because i know it was expensive. I have done other things such as making dream catchers , corn hole boards and bags,

I'd rather knit or crochet even though the results take a lot longer than with sewing.

I've been scrapbooking for 14 years. I started when my daughter was an infant. Before that I did crafts every now and then but I was never very good at it. Once I started scrapbooking and found that I was actually good at something, it gave me the confidence to try other stuff. I've made a lot of cards in my day (and got burned out for awhile but now I'm getting back into it). I've created tons of paper piecings for scrapbooks (I even sold quite a few originals on ebay early on). I've also made blankets, wreaths, decorated bulletin boards with stamps & paint, made coasters. Last year I taught myself to make beaded bracelets and earrings - again, very simple designs. My daughter and I currently have an Etsy shop where we sell our jewelry. (EmsSparklinGems)

I'll try anything that doesn't require too much effort. LOL I've never been into crocheting, knitting, embroidery or anything that involves a needle or hook. I've had people try to teach me but I just couldn't get into it. I own a sewing machine and I can do basic stuff - I hem, mend and can manage minor alterations (I've had to alter my fair share of dance costumes). I've made simple curtains for my home to save money. When my daughter was a toddler I made her a few dresses. Sewing is not something I enjoy - it causes me more stress than anything so I only pull out the machine when I have something that needs mending or if I want to do a very simple DIY project.

I got started a long, long time ago when I was just a tyke, so that's like as old as dirt. I studied art in college, and went to Seattle and studied jewelry design and did that for a while but life happened and I ended up a librarian and pursing art in my spare time. For years I made miniatures and jewelry then moved into sculpting and lately I've really been into paper sculpting. My goal is to make something beautiful every chance I get.

I know I'm getting in on the tail end of the week, but...

I started crafting as soon as my mother would let me into her craft room! Probably preschool?!

I crochet, sew, quilt, scrapbook, make cards, and lots of little crafty things. Scrapbooking is my favorite and definitely my "expensive" hobby... sewing is right up there though. Just wish I had more time!

My absolute favorite craft is cardmaking. Scrapbooking comes in a close second. I like cards more than scrapbooking because I like sharing my creations and love the reaction I get when people open homemade cards!

Bows as in wrapping gifts. Now that's something I would like to become better at. I need to do a search for that or find a good site. I suspect "Martha" may be a good place to start.

I can not even remember a time when I was not doing or learning some sort of craft. I have done crochet, sewing, drawing, painting, watercoloring, ceramics, jewlery/beading, needlepointing, latch hook projects(anyone remember these)....but my all time favorite has been scrapbooking....I get lost in the day and forget the rest of ths world when I scrapbook. Unfortunately, I do not get much time to do it these days. I think that I need to try and carve out a day once a month to scrap....

I started beading about 10 years ago, then I found polymer clay (make your own beads!) Can't say which one I like better - I get caught up in them both.

That is such a hard question! I think paper crafts are my favorite. So scrapbooking, collages, and just lists and things are my favorite to do.

I was always a crafty kid... my sister and I even sold personalized "stationary" to our parents! I really got into scrapbooking my junior year of high school. Mom mom had started dabbling in it and I started spending more time with her as she was making her scrapbooks. I was hooked! One of my college roommates was a big scrapbooker, and we really bonded over that!

I first got into making cards when I got my first baby Cricut on my 24th birthday and discovered mypinkstamper.com. I can't ever imagine a time in my life when I'm not interested in creating something!

I guess I've been a crafter pretty much forever! My Dad worked for JoAnn Fabric (Centers of America Distribution) when I was growing up. They used to have awesome Sample Sales, Give aways and parties.
We had stamps, beads, and paints, and fabric paints, and the list goes on and on. Growing up in NE Ohio, crafting was our winter activity. (I didn't know it was called crafting, or even had a name but that's what we did, especially when it was too cold to play outside.)
When I was 11 my great grandma taught me how to crochet (something I need to re-teach myself).
When DH & I married my sister, mom and I made the invitations and all the decor.
I put together a scrapbook of our wedding and honeymoon.
On special occasions I'd make cards, or little gifts, scrapbook some, etc.
All this still not really knowing what "crafter" was and that I was one. :)
When my niece was born (09) I started making hair bows, then jewelry soon followed (as well as the knowledge that {duh} I'm a crafter.

So, all that to say, I've been a crafter for as long as I can remember!

I have been crafting forever... always loved working with crafting projects... mostly paper crafts... but I've made jewelry, wreaths, clay pot soldiers... just whatever catches my eye... I can't even remember exactly what got me started... I can't wait to read everyone else's replies!
