Creative Spaces Vol. 2 GIVEAWAY!

*revised with a GIVEAWAY!* excited...the release of Creative Spaces Vol. 2!

I'm thrilled to part of this inspiring issue...there's just nothing quite like getting a peek into the creative spaces of fellow crafters...a peek into what inspires them & the environment that gets them motivated to create!

The lovely team over at CK has given me an issue of this inspiring publication to give away on my blog, how wonderful is that?!

So, please leave a comment below to be entered to win, and I'll choose a winner once I return from CHA! 

In honor of this issue release, here's a little sneak peek into my crafting space:

After a while of being on the lookout for a small, many-drawered piece that would fit my little nook at the bottom of the stairs, I scored this find during a Target seasonal it!

It's functional as well as closed, which is key to my space, since my scrap corner is open to the main family area of our home.

It stores SO MUCH stuff...plenty of room for all my mists, paints, trims, flowers, chipboard, vintage ephemera, glitter, glue gun, and other small tools.

So, when shopping for your own space, my advice is to keep your eyes peeled for great multi-compartment pieces in all shapes and sizes!

Up next, here's a little DIY project for you.  I bought basic white IKEA curtain rods for my valences, but wanted to spruce them up a little, since they were for my creating corner.

Here's my simple solution...easy custom finials that reflect my style:

I bought crystal finials (vintage ones or drawer pulls would be great for this), and attached them to the IKEA rod with long screws.
Then I topped them off by hot-gluing a large pearl brad, with the prongs cut off:

There you have it, a fun & super-quick way to add  a little bit of a unique crafty touch to your space!
