Crafty Cat's Corner
There is a big difference in our spaces. She has a converted shed outside of her home, which allows her to escape to another place for her artsy moments.
I live in an apartment, so I've had to carve out room somehow in my small living space. It is hard to escape the stare of a pile of clothes or dishes in the sink when they are so close. You craft to get away from your worries.
On the flip side, the temperature is always cozy, my big screen television is right in front of me, and my bathroom is close.
There is a natural nook in my apartment that doesn't really seem to fit any purpose. So, I gave it purpose. Yes, that means people in my living room see my scrapbooking space. Let's be honest...no craft space is ever tidy. We may organize it once a year. But, the first project sends it spiraling back to a messy pile of ribbon, paper, beads, and tools. I don't like having my piles of embellishments on the edge of my living room. But, that is the drawback of apartment living.
