How To Make an Easter Fairy Garden

Spring is almost here!  It's too early to garden over where we live, as we can't even see the ground!  I believe it is somewhere under all that white stuff called snow!  Hahaha.  In the meantime, I am gardening indoors, by making Fairy Gardens like this one:

Craft Room/Studio Tour 2018

All week a group of Craft Bloggers (including myself) is sharing glimpses into their creative workspaces with YOU!  Today is the Final day of the tour, and I am so happy to know that you have come along on this expedition.   Link to Angie's Blog: The Country Chic Cottage here to see where this all began and also view a complete list of ALL the Craft Rooms featured on tour.

                             So here is my brand New Studio!

Yes, I absolutely love it, and I know that I am very fortunate to have gotten to this point in my life where this has been possible.  I have created with my hands ALL my life, and I did not need to have such a beautiful space to make stuff.  I have managed with no money and very little space to be creative in the beginning, and I have struggled, worked like mad, and persevered to get to this point.  Creating every day is fundamental to me, and having space where I am surrounded by natural light, nature and my loved ones is all I want.  Oh, and my kitty, I love having her around too.

Before Designing, building and moving into this space I made do with my basement.  Here are links to some videos of that area.  It is still there as I have SO much stuff to move out!

Craft Room Tour 2017
In my New and current workspace, I have had to adjust to working in an area approximately half the size of what I was used to in my basement.  Ouch!  What an adjustment that is.  So I am making sure every square inch or centimeter LOL is used efficiently.

One of the ways I worked with my contractor on achieving this was to utilize otherwise wasted space to store or display many of the beautiful and smaller sized supplies I work with.  For example these paint bottle cubbies.

Because we have to deal with brick walls, we needed to hang the cabinets onto some heavy duty supports anchored into the walls.  This created a more significant gap between the cupboards around corners.  We designed some cubbies to fill those gaps rather than just using "fillers" as is commonly used by many kitchen cabinet designers.  I am very fortunate to be working with an expert craftsman as well as conscientious contractors!

I am so pleased with how my new crafting place has turned out.  Although the organizing and set up is not complete as if they ever will be! I look forward to many hours of creating in this space.  I wish to thank you for stopping by and spending some time with me.  I do hope that you will return to see more details of how and what ways I use to organize and store things.  Plus, come back to craft and play!

Thanks again and take care!
