craftspace

So another #BEDM prompt I can interpret today! Simply 'Workspace' - which of course for me is my craftspace, and my craftspace is my bedroom.




I currently still live at home while B and I wait for him to finish his degree (one more year) - I considered moving to Leeds with him next year, and as much as I wanted to I didn't want to financially cripple myself before we could move in together properly and also didn't want the stress of finding a job in Leeds only to leave it after a year (B is the best - really understood my decision), so instead I am saving so that as soon as he is finished we can get to looking (and no offence to my family but I can't wait to move out/in with B - I need more of my own space) and get to living :)

So without my own place to expand into I am limited to my room - the smallest room in the house (I need to breach with N the possibility of me finally moving into his room). I have to use a desk in N's room for my sewing machine, and the majority of my blogging is done on the floor, and my crafting on my bed.

Unfortunately I am a very tidy and neat person by nature and my room just does not have the capacity for all of my crafting stuff - I already have some boxes hidden in other parts of the house with overspill possessions - and I dream of drawers and shelves to suit my needs...

It's cramped and bad for my back - but while I am still living at home this is as close to a sanctuary as I can get and the whole place has my personal stamp on it (crafted too - the bunting is my own, handmade for example, as are 4 of my cushions) and until I can move out this, as you see it, is my craft(work)space.

Where do you get your creative juices flowing?

  1. I use to craft a lot in my room growing up in my parents house. I now live in a one bed apartment which is still pretty small. Hoping that when we buy our first house, one of the spare rooms will become my craft come office space so I can hide all my crafty bits and pieces away in one room - well most of it anyway!

  2. That pillow! I have to use the dining table or sit on my bed if I want to do anything that involves crafting here.Though it's not amazing for inspiration it does at least give me space or quiet time to do the things I love most x

    1. space and quiet time are certainly something - one of the great things about my room is that with it completely being my own it can give me a lot of inspiration because i have inadvertently decorated it in a really good way. but on the other hand it is small and sometimes too secluded...a balance we will have to sort out clearly when we both are able to move into our own places to live with our families!
