Creative space

My husband and I, with the help of some friends, recently transformed our guest bedroom into a creative hub. My craft headquarters now shares a room with his music-recording equipment and instruments, plus our computer and several bookcases.

Since our daughter recently turned 2, we thought it'd be good for her to have her own room, so we gave away our guest bed, making room for my drafting table, folding table, and assorted wheeled carts, which were previously housed in Natalie's play room. The new area also has room for my wall-mounted embellishment organizer, a Christmas gift from my brother-in-law Ryan.

The new configuration will take some getting used to, but I'm happy to have a completely empty work table for friends to use and/or for me to lay out my scrapbook (if and when I ever get around to scrapbooking again). And I'm happy to have a craft table for Natalie, though she still prefers being on my lap doing whatever I'm doing.
