Craft closet part 3



My closet was just about done; we were waiting for the drawers to dry and the top of the desk as well. There was a lot of sanding and sealing involved with that desk.


Until that was ready, I decided to work on my inspiration board and some art to display in my office/guest room.


I had some really pretty quilting fabric with flowers all over it and used it to hang on my wall above the daybed. I added little gems and painted other little details to the fabric and it looks really nice as an art piece for that huge empty wall.



My kids have several art pieces they have won awards for and they are displayed all around the office. I love seeing this all around me when I create. It is important to surround yourself with things that make you smile.


Art clippings from an old calendar and little items I have made over the year add a ton of color to my board. Some old photos and little beads my kids made for their dad were added.

This little teddy bear I made one night reminds me of the adventures of Winnie the pooh. There is also a tiny little bracelet that I picked up when I was in Belize that a Mayan woman made.


There are little quotes here and there, a tiny little doll I had when I was a little girl, photos of my family and anything colorful. I love color.


This was my favorite part of this closet, although I am not finished with filling up my board because I always come across things that inspire me and remind me to be kind and always create. Putting up some art, putting up lots of colors and surrounding my space with things that make me happy and wanting to create was the funniest part of this project.


Wherever you make your creative space, make sure you do this no matter where it is, you will love it. Even if you don’t have a creative space, put up a board and fill it with the things you love, so that when you get up every morning you will take a look at that and be happy. It is like a mirror of the beauty inside of us all and only we know what it looks like, until we make that board.


When I was a little girl my first creative space was outside behind the old Hay shed, out where our horses were kept. My creative space was dirty but organized and I had an old wire fence to keep the horses away from my crayons and rocks and just about everything else I collected around that huge desert mountain we lived by and I loved that space. I didn’t even mind sharing with the horses. I think they loved it too, all creatures on this planet need a little color.

Oh wow, you have done a great job, your creative space, your inspiration board, it all looks so good :):):) There’s no way you could keep from smiling looking at all you, and your kids beautiful creations. The quilting fabric, that was already pretty, and yet you made it prettier :):) Girl you are just too creative!


    1. Aww…thank you, you always write the sweetest comments. I can’t wait to share my little closet, I love it, it’s not fancy but my husband and kids were all apart of making it for me. Now I just need to get the guest rooms organized and painted. I think I might have family visiting from Arkansas and Oklahoma in the Spring. We usually have family stop by from Italy but they stay with my Italian mother-in-law down the street.
