Workspace Wednesday | Mirium Rodriguez

Hi everyone! I am really happy to be sharing my craft space with you today. My craft room is definitely my favorite room in the house. It was originally meant to be our formal dining room but we never used it since it is too small. Since this room gets a ton of light during the morning and throughout the day it is the perfect place to craft, I just had to claim it for myself!

Let me get started with my two most favorite things in this room, my craft table and my card /paper organizer. Both of which were made by my awesome hubby, isn't he amazing!?

The wooden organizer was made by him a few years ago when I got the idea that it would be awesome if I could somehow organize my Project Life cards and paper in a way that I could have them all out in the open yet be organized, too. I drew up a picture for my hubby and he made it for me. The organizer came out so much better than I could have ever imagined. I absolutely love it (and my amazing guy for making it) and it makes it super easy to stay organized . I love being able to see all the pretty cards at once instead of digging thru piles of boxes. Once I figured out my husband could pretty much make anything, I decided I wanted a new craft table and what could be better than a chevron patterned wooden table!? Once again, my guy came thru for me and made this stunning rustic table. It's huge, (about 6ft by 3ft) and perfect for me to spread out with all of my craft goodies and get messy!

On the other wall I have my expedit shelf and raskog cart. My shelf holds some books, my P.L. albums, photo boxes filled with pictures yet to be scrapped, my planners, along with stamps and ink and a variety of embellishments. For the smaller embellishments, like tags, wood veneers, or sequins, I have used small bowls and mini colanders. They are meant for the kitchen but work perfectly in my craft space.


The little buckets and baskets from the Target Dollar Spot are excellent for the small stuff, too. On the bottom shelves, I have storage bins where I keep my alphas, (I have a ton!) most of my 12 x 12 paper, craft paint, and my art journals.

And finally, my raskog cart holds my planner goodies, my roller stamps that I keep in an Ikea ceramic planter and more wooden veneers. On the bottom of the cart are my three year old's smash books. She uses them to "project life" while I work on my albums, she keeps busy and I get time to craft all while cultivating her love for scrap-booking. It's totally a win-win situation!

I sincerely hope that you have enjoyed my craft space as much I have enjoyed sharing it. It is a work in progress and is constantly changing. Thank you so much for stopping by!

    Your space is just gorgeous Miriam! The hand crafted wood pieces your hubby made are amazing. He could probably make and sell those :) I LOVE your gallery wall there too, so beautiful!

    Ha! I love it. It almost looks like my room including the PL stadium, the colanders, the mini pails, the Ikea shelf, the Raskog cart and even the chevron work table! We could be twins. Crafty hubbies are the best. I think I would say my hubs is the one crafty item I can't live without. ;-)
