I love my space, in every sense of the word. In terms of space to create – that’s an absolute necessity. I like having a place to go when I want to be alone with my ideas, where I can store materials, and carry out projects. As much as I love rooms that are neat and tidy, it’s not really the way I operate when I’m in the middle of 5 projects. It’s a waste of time to me to put stuff away when I’m just going to have to bring it out again the next time I am working. My creative space can’t really be shared with any other function; if I relied on my dining table as my crafts/writing table, we would never be able to eat on it. Because…priorities!

For today’s #3ThingsThursday linkup, hosted by Pink Chai Living, The Write Balance and Love Laugh Mirch, I’m sharing some ideas for turning your closet into a crafts room/office/studio – whatever it is you need! If a closet isn’t in the cards, there are other ways to work around that (look at #3 below)! Check out these three websites for some brilliant and inspiring ideas!
