    we're lucky that we have a spare bedroom, it was the childrens toy room but at 18 and 21 they've now outgrown toys bless them so it had become a dumping ground
    we started off making cards on the dining room table but after a while when my teenage daughter complained that we didn't have dinner sitting at the table anymore we decided something had to be done
    so we moved upstairs into our 'craft ' room
    we have his and her desks lol and far too much stuff but I love it and strangely enough it is one of my favourite places to tidy up ( although the tidyness never lasts long lol )

      For the benefit of relative newbies, my Avatar is my craft room. I have bits of kit in it made by crafters and the sign on it was also made by one of our members but as for tidiness, I will have to hoover before I can tell you what colour the carpet is.

        I am one of the lucky ones. A few years ago, we extended our house at the back and converted the less-than-useless garage (couldn't fit a car in it!) into a bedroom, shower room and office as I worked from home for my then job. When I left and began my crafting business, the office has become my craft studio. Small but perfectly formed is I think the phrase! Tidy, isn't!! I do enjoy moving everything around from time to time (although it takes me ages to do as there is so much stuff in there!)

        However, today is (as is always the case on a Friday) packaging day. So where am I? Dining room table!! It is the only place I can really spread out and not worry about getting paint on my packaging and orders. So, whilst the craft room is great, I could do with more space.... Now if only I could have one of those on the Crafty Storage blog....

          I want one too! Currently I have to use my desk in my office (I am self employed as a trainer as my day job!) and always feel guilty that I should be doing day job work on it and not making lovely things with beads! We hope to move soon and always wanted somewhere with outbuildings for our various bits and my OH's beer brewing, now we are going to need more outbuilding space so I can play without being disturbed or having to dig seed beads out of my keyboard!

            Years ago we converted a spare bedroom into office space and this has now become creative space. It is filled with suitable storage and is in a continual state of creative chaos...which is the downside to being able to stop what you are doing and walk away.

            I am always going to tidy it, but as fast as I tidy, the mess multiplies...next time I tidy I must remember to take a quick pic...but right now I would be ashamed for anyone to see it

              I'm really lucky as when we moved house there was enough revenue left over to pay for a downstairs extension, so I now have my own craft room, however it is nowhere near as glamorous as some I have seen.

              I have not got around to adding any shelving, however it is big enough to house my overlocker, sewing machine, embroidery machine, foot press (popper machine) fabrics, threads etc.

                    I should have a craft room as we have two spare rooms but I don't. The downstairs office has all the paperwork for the farm and hardly any room for my craft stuff and the spare bedroom has been used as a dumping ground for all the stuff that my sons don't want. At the moment it has a set of bunk beds (for visitors) two wardrobes, a table and dressing table, along with gym equipment and odds and ends so it's pretty much full up.

                      I want a craft house.....barn.....factory and warehouse!
                      Visions of never having to clear up. Just making things starting at the front door and working my way along until I fell out of the back door.

                        The room that's going to be my studio has now been painted (just coving and celling to do at the weekend). I will be going through the junk that's crammed into it and ditching as much as I possibly can, so I can get ready for sorting my craft stuff out when I get to the point where I have suitable furniture!

                        I'll post pics on my blog when I get rid of the disgusting throw that's currently covering my sofabed!!

                          Ohh Sunrise you've shamed me, look how tidy your room is

                          Mine is the spare bedroom, or the boxroom as some would say, you can't swing a cat round in it really, but its *my space* hubby has his own *man den* downstairs with his mac, telly and ps3, sattelite... boys eh!

                          I'm shamed into tidying mine.... tomorrow!! My problem is lack of storage space. Here it is just now...

                              I am really lucky in that I have my own studio which has a very pretty outlook, its big and I have a work table for cutting my glass etc....supposed to be 'my' space but am sharing it with sacks of bulbs (of the flower variety), bird seed, two rusty filing cabinets and two big cases of power tools, its freezing in the winter and have to wear thermals and a hat to work....but I love it!

                                I am also lucky to have a craft "box" room - its the smallest room in the house but it has a good size desk, shelves and my sewing machine in it. Of course i'm never happy as it means that when i've been playing with one thing (many boxes of beads) and want to swap to another (a bit of sewing machine chaos) I have to clear the other one away Poor me! lol I must admit even a small space is lovely to have, 50% of the time its a total tip where i've dumped all my bags from the last workshop on the desk or i've dumped my sewing machine on the floor when I get back from class so when you do want to go in there you spend an hour clearing it up and never actual make anything!! It is a shrine to everything girly however and whenever one of the girls comes round they have a fit at all the pink things (dare I say it, Hello Kitty things :/), shiney things and pretty things!

                                If only I could get to the desk i'd go up there now, but I just can't quite face tidying it up first
