Where Bloggers Create

I have a humble little area for creating...it has taken over my dining room. I use my dining room table either as a catch-all for the overflow of materials, or as a cutting area for paper or fabric. My favorite space is the zinc topped farm table from my grandmother. This table used to occupy a space in her kitchen, and it has served many purposes in my home.
I made the curtains to cover bookcases last summer. When I actually have dinner guests, the curtains close and it doesn't look quite so much like a crafting area.

Tables like yours have an almost magical quality to them. You can feel the history while you rev up your creative energy. You have a lovely space to work.

You have eked out a very nice space for yourself in a clever way. Your guests would never guess that a crafting corner existed there.

I adore the curtain! While I have a big place to spread out now, there was a time when space was limited. You have used yours very creatively. Thank you for sharing it! Kathy
Lovely lights! You have beautiful organization! Blessings dear.

LOve your very sweet and compact area! What a great way to make a space for your creative muse.

Perfect area to do what you love to do. And spreading out to the dinning area is a good use of that space too. I'm pretty sure we spend more creating than we spend eating. Sound like you have made it work for you.

Thanks for sharing your crafting space. This blog party has been so much fun today, but I'm not getting anything else done! Those hydrangeas on your banner are to die for.

A perfect little space. And is that a featherweight I see? I'm jealous! I also love zinc topped tables. Thanks for sharing your space!
Oh it is such a neat space. I especially love your creatively covering the bookcases. I am really thinking of doing that in my sewing room.
Thanks for sharing your great space.
Have a great weekend.

you win the prize. Absolutely love the curtain, the desk, and the old black sewing machine. Is it a singer?

How pretty! I love the old sewing machine. I have one that's in need of a tune up. :)

I work on a table that belonged to my grandmother and it's as sturdy now as it was when she had it.

You have created a nice little spot for yourself! Although I have a room for my creativity, I use my DR table quite a bit. The light is so much better in there. I tend to create all over the house. Thanks for letting me visit!

Such a sweet corner for your crafting and a great way to store your goodies. I remember when I used my dining table as well, it was nice to be around the family too.TFS

The curtains over the bookcase is a clever idea!

Hello Teresa,

You have it all situated just how you like it...I like the curtain put on the bookcase! Thanks for sharing your creative space. :0)

I would love to have you drop by to see my "studio in progress". I've just recently moved into my home and I've been remodeling for going on three months. I'm almost finished. (I think!!)

See ya,
Stephanie

What a sweet little space. Love the table! The curtain idea is great too. Thanks for sharing.
Personally I would love to be a guest for dinner in a crafting room. There is always something fun to look at!
Thanks for the peek into your world!

I think it's so important to make a space for yourself! I love that curtain and what a good idea to have it hide the things on the bookcase!

Great idea with the curtains! it doesn't matter where you create, just as long as you do!
It is not the size of the space, but how it is used...that's my motto (and you use your space is such a creative way)! I love your zinc-topped table - one of my favorite things! Also love your blog header - hydrangeas are some of the most beautiful flowers, especially in purples and blues. Thank you so much for sharing your space!

:-) Molly
