Hi All...I'm new to CRAFTSTER (just joined today) and it's really DYNAMITE!

I refer to my art workspace area as "the room where the bomb went off"...lol!  Wink

I have a super small apartment so what works for me is black/silver bracket shelving (because when you run out of floor space you can only go UP) as well as the largest plastic rolling carts you can buy.  (I found mine @ Target.)

What complicates matters is within my workspace, I display my collection of vintage/antique snowman...They stay up year round, cooling me down in the summer and helping me get inspired the rest of the year.

I love what you guys have done with your spaces!

JessKelly...Your wall color is FABULOUS!  Great choice.  Smiley

Oh my goodness MADsLucky13 you have an extensive snowman collection! And thanks, I live in a rental so the wall colour wasn't my choice, but luckily green is one of my favourite colours Smiley

I'm pleased to introduce my first craft from my newly organised stash, a cushion for Mums birthday. The colours and style are very her and she's been desperate for things to pretty up her back porch. This is two square cushion inserts stitched into a round shape, red fabric insert, gray scarf, gray felt cut from a purse and buttons. Everything was in my stash and now it's not so more space for me and a cushion for her; everyone wins.

Love the cushion JessKelly  Smiley

I've had training courses this week so haven't been able to craft much. On the first day I took my socks to knit on breaks but didn't get much done so for the second day I packed a hook and some yarn and by day three came home in a new hat  Grin

Yes, its another Divine as I don't need to follow the pattern for it by now.

JessKelly - it is a lovely pillow for your mum - her taste and mine must be very alike  Cheesy.
 So neat and organised, MadsLucky13 - and I like your snowmen - and love you have them up all year round!
 Great work, Trina', you must be so proud! You are welcome to come and organise my stash any day!  Grin.
Scarf number 5, Michelleandbean! You must have been very busy.
And another lovely hat from Kookaloo - hats and scarfs - who are making mittens? Cheesy

Kookaloo, I love your hats. Are you interested in swapping?

I really don't get a lot of destashing done for the moment.

Building bunkbeds for the kids doesn't exactly require fabric Sad

JessKelly: Ooooooooooooooh, I LOVE your Mum's pillow...GREAT job...She's gonna FLIP!  Is the red section chenille?  Looks like it has alot of texture.

I have my snowmen on ALL FOUR WALLS of the workspace and actually this shot was taken over a year ago so there's MORE craft bins and MORE snowmen!   Shocked

Taramor: THANK YOU...The space only "looks" organized because the pic was taken during the holidays and I have alot of friends over...lol!  Any other time of the year it's a WAR ZONE!   Wink

Here's a shot of my last finished project...I was able to use up vintage valentine scrap that I was holding on to for at least two years!

I haven't really done much this month, but I did manage to use two skeins of ruffle yarn to give to a co-worker!

Everyone's progress is so inspiring! My rehearsal schedule finally got a little lighter, so yesterday I was able to rearrange my room and give my self a larger crafting area! Everything's still a mess from moving everything, but hopefully today and tomorrow I can get everything organized. While moving things around, I also found my camera! I can finally take pics of my slow stash busting! Grin

Kookaloo_Starr, that hat looks like it is flawlessly made!

Thanks MADsLucky13. The red section is very textured you're absolutely right, but the light kind of washed out the detail of the fabric. It's an upholstery fabric, kind of like a silky woven carpet.  Seems that holding onto the vintage valentine scrap of yours for all that time paid off, you've given it new life Smiley
