    Default I'll show you mine...if you show me yours

    workspace that is. I always think it's cool to see where everyone is creative...and I always get great ideas to implement in my space when I look at how someone else does it.

    so here are a few pics of my space. It's in the basement of our house. We've been doing all the work ourselves to finish it, so it's not quite perfect and the ceiling isn't done yet...but it's better than nothing:



    this is the space from standing in the doorway to my scrapbook room. yes I am a craft junkie.

    You can see the big empty space on my sewing table...that's where my Brother goes when it's not sick.

    You can also see that my table is up on blocks. I am tall and it was killing me having the table on the floor, this also makes cutting a lot easier, but I have to wait to get a second table until they go on sale again. So cutting gets done on the fold out table where you see my mess sitting.



    this is my space looking from the living room area of our rec room. I have to share this space with our entertainment space (working on a projection system for television), as well as the kids' playroom, storage, a bathroom, my scrapbook room, and my husband's wood workshop (behind that brown ugly door).

    Wow it sounds like you're busy with all sorts of projects. Your space looks awesome. I'm just hoping some day I'll actually have one. Our house just isn't allowing room for one yet, although I have some plans. I'll probably be a basement crafter just like you

    I love the green on your walls! So soft and pretty!! Green is a favorite of mine! Here is a picture of the Shop busy with Ladies working on projects! Honestly, this is the only place I get anything done! My space at home is void of all sewing stuff and only has scrap booking stuff left! So, here is my space!

    thanks!! our greens are almost the same...so calming. The color in the pics though looks a little washed out compared to the actual color. It was called something to the effect of Spring Celedon....it looks like a celery crossed with lettuce.

    I wish I could come and sew with all your ladies..how fun is that. Looks like they are having a great time!!

    I can't wait to see everyone's spaces.

    Misty - I love having my space in the basement. We have a daylight basement rancher. Since the kids are upstairs when they go to bed, I can just head downstairs to the rec room and sew to my hearts content!!

    Alright so I'm gonna stake claim on the shop picture as well since that's where I get everything done too! I just wish I could be there EVERY DAY! Such a happy place!

    Shell, I'd be all about the basement room if I could just convince the hubby to downsize the "man-cave" portion. You know how it is.

    WOW!!!! you all have such neat work places, expecially Sarah and Jenny. I have worked there too a few times. Anyway I have to use the kitchen table, which is a bummer, because I have to move stuff all the time. I don't have kids at home and my husband works nights, so it isn't everyday. Thank goodnes. We are working on the spare bedroom right now and I am hoping I can use it as my sewing room, someday. My husband is kind of slow when it comes to doing stuff around the house. Does anyone else have one like that?

    Gosh,

    I wish we had a shop like that in my area. Everyone seems to be having fun and being so productive. I have to get all my fabrics online because all the shops are so darn far away! You would think in a big city we would have at least one.

    OK so I finally got my camera back from the month long hiatus it had in the repair shop... lucky. Well, here's a picture of my space.
    [attachment=0:3j0dlxdy]100_0241.JPG[/attachment:3j0dlxdy]
    This was taken while feeding the baby, from the bed that is sharing my sewing room.

    This was taken shortly after my husband stuffed everything up against one wall so that there would be more room for his sister. Don't get me wrong his sister is a great girl and I'm hoping to get some free babysitting out of this deal but I'm not thrilled about sharing my sewing room... with anyone!
