studio space reveal- sewing room/craft roomI’ve been working on putting my craft room/sewing room together since the first of the year (with a February break to go visit Jord and crew)…

…and I finished it up just in time to share as part of the 2 little hooligans “Sewing Spaces” series. I’m loving the chance to peek into some of my favorite bloggers work spaces- be sure to check it out!

The Kid’s Craft Cart (aka IKEA rolling cart) is filled with crayons, markers, colored pencils, paint, and every different kind of paper imaginable. Yesterday Burke was even making hand drawn ‘invitations’ for his birthday party while I worked. I love having this space to work side by side with the Smooches!

sewing_spaces_revealI know I already shared some of the DIY tutorials (the polka dot cork letters, the glitter covered art hangers, the fur topped IKEA stools, the fabric covered bulletin board), and I still have a couple to share. Did I mention that I am loving this space?

I’d love to know- if you could fill a space with things you love, what would make the cut?
