Welcome back to my craft room!
In my last post I had some fun thinking about the perfect craft space. I looked around my own craft room and came up with a "Top 10 List" of items in it that I find to be the most useful. Today I'm thinking about how to make a craft space so beautiful that it inspires you to sit right down and start making something. So, here's my . . .
Top 10 List of Inspirational Items to Have in Your Craft Space:
1. Natural light
You can't top this one. Not only does natural light help us to see what we're doing (and at my age, that's becoming more important!), it allows us to really appreciate color and texture. In addition to a big window, my craft room has a skylight located right above my work table.

I believe in surrounding yourself with your favorite colors. I love orange and turquoise, my friend Mary Elizabeth loves pink . . . our personal spaces reflect the colors we love. Who cares if no one else likes it? Who cares if the rest of the house is "builders' beige"? This is your room; it should make you feel happy and inspired.
3. Words that inspire
4. Objects found in nature

Who knows what these things will become . . . or not? Right now it is simply their textures and shapes that make me covet them.
