where i create.

hi all!
it's emily here.
i always love seeing where other people create...so, today i thought i would post pictures of where i create!
i am so fortunate to have a little nook in the corner of our bedroom.
i love my space...it's very practical for me...and when the kids want to color or make their own pages :) they have a little table they can sit at as well!
so, here are some pictures of the space.
i got this wooden cake stand at a thrift store for like .20 cents!
i store all my odds and ends that i end up using a lot on there.

here it is again...along with some other thrift store finds...the yummy dishes that hold some miscellaneous items.
my punches are stored right above it on an IKEA kitchen bar rack...it's a perfect fit...and was super cheap!

i've recycled old baby food jars and used them to house my letters that i have lying around, or that have fallen off my letter sheets.
i store them alphabetically so, the first jar holds "A-D" and so on.

here's my pretty white basket that use to hold diapers, but now it holds all of my letter sheets, and/or rub-ons...pretty much anything i would put on a clip-it-up would go in here.
i'm too cheap to buy a clip-it-up.

here's a view of my tall desk and shelves.
everything pretty much is from either garage sales/thrift stores or IKEA.

love these bowls.
they warm my heart.

another view of my shelf with the baby food jars and also ribbon and flower jars.

my button vase!

a close-up shot of my pretty dishes.
i love these.

NOW, i want YOU to link me up to the place where you create. it can be a rolling tote and your kitchen table or some extravagant scrap room.
i just like to see it.
i'm going to pick a few people who's areas are inspiring (for whatever reason) and post those pictures and a link to those ladies blogs on THIS blog on friday!
so, link me up to your space...or go take pictures of your space and link me up.
and like i said, even if it's a rolling tote or an armoire that opens up...anything, we want to see it.
you don't need a huge, amazing space to create beautiful art.
have a fabulous tuesday!

I posted that back up after I got power from hurricane ike tearing everything down! But while we had no internet, I sat down and made my area SUPER pretty!!! I love it! There is LOTS of hello kitty and I plan on decking it out more with pink and purple and hello kitty!!

Your space tells me that you don't need a lot of room to create fabulous things. I love all of your special dishes. So nice! I hope you can get into this link - it's my space and I love it.

Ooooo! I LOVE looking at scrap spaces. I LOVE the way you have displayed and organized all your things, Em! I LOVE pretty containers! :) That tall desk is just awesome! I've never seen that punch idea before! So cool! I may have to figure out a way to add that to my new room.

I will be moving soon, but here are some pictures of the scrap room I have now. I can't wait to see everyone else's space!
