If you could peek inside my craft room right now, you’d likely do one of three things: (1) run, screaming; (2) faint; (3) call the producers of Hoarders and tell them you’ve found their next candidate. Yes, my space is that messy.
I just can’t help myself. When it comes to crafting supplies, I can’t get enough. Please tell me you relate. That I’m not alone in my addiction.
Never fear, friends. Help is on the horizon. You see, I have a great BIG secret to share with you today… Creative Spaces Vol. 2 is coming!
Yes, we at Creating Keepsakes are back with another edition of this hugely popular special issue. Only, being volume two, this issue promises to be twice as nice. Including hundreds of ideas for keeping our scrapbooking supplies organized and under control!
But wait, there’s more good news. The original Creative Spaces is still on sale, so you don’t have to wait until Jan. 8 to get your storage and décor fix.
Here are just a few shots of my scrapbook/stamp/beading/paper crafting space, which we featured in this issue.
Writing the first Creative Spaces got me so inspired that I carved out a second creative area in my home—a place where I do my sewing and play with fabric. This space (a corner of my family room) will be featured in Vol. 2, but I thought I’d give you a sneak peek now.
As you can see, it looks nothing like my pink explosion of a scrap room, but that’s the fun of this issue. You’ll check it out and find what inspires you, which may lead to a craft room makeover, even if that plan wasn’t originally on the horizon. Fun!
Another Exclusive Look
Now’s your chance to see how a magazine comes together. We partnered up with our friends at Studio 5, a local lifestyle program, to do a little Creative Spaces Vol. 2 project. Go behind the scenes with us and check out this Studio 5 segment.
More Sneak Peek Info
As if this weren’t enough to get you excited about the fabulous Creative Spaces happiness to come on January 8, the party continues on the Paper Crafts blog. Take a look. I can assure you you’ll leave inspired.
Before you go, I have a favor to ask. Would you mind taking a minute to tell me what it is YOU want from a magazine focused on organizing? Is it fresh approaches to storing your stash, hip decorating ideas, easy do-it-yourself projects, or something else entirely? Maybe you just like to ohhh and ahhh over what others have done in their own spaces. Whatever it is, I’d love to hear from you. We’re still putting the finishing touches on this magazine, and your feedback will help make it the best it can be.
