Default Where do you stamp?

Dedicated room? Shared room? Kitchen? Living room? Basement?

I'm in an office I share with my husband, but 90% is mine!

Here's one side. Yes, I use that little table. Right now I'm in the middle of making desk calendars for 4 friends plus myself.

Dedicated room. But stamping shares the small space with quilting. Wish I had room for a long-arm quilting machine, but...

Ha! I have a room dedicated to my stuff! But I have to go in, find it, and bring it out to use it.

I actually do things on a round game-type table in my living area. It's on the pathway to the kitchen, and I can see the TV easily. I set it up there years ago for extra seating at Christmas for family, and have never taken it down.


When I'm making cards, my paper stuff is there. When I am sewing, my sewing machine goes there. When I crochet, my yarn goes there. And at Christmas, I cleaned it all off and family sat there!


My hubby is a kitchen-table-sitter and reads and does paperwork in the kitchen, so I can see him and talk while I work.


I'm so used to being out in the open, in the middle of things, that I don't think I would like being in a craft room by myself.

I'm very lucky to have a dedicated room we built a new house 3 years ago and a basement bedroom is my craft/office space. Hubby scrounged a beautiful big old oak desk out of an up-for-grabs building so that is my work surface that holds a lot of tools, my laptop, cutter, scrubber... I have a quilting self healing mat in the centre where I stamp and have also scrounged huge calendar sheets that when turned over, lasts a long time as stamp off scrap paper.

It's so great

I turned a corner of our family room into a stamping area for myself. I love it because I can be with my family while crafting, although I do most of my crafting during the day when I am alone.

I have a dedicated room, but many times I bring coloring out to the kitchen counter so I can set up higher.

I have a dedicated room right now. It used to be my TV room. After we bought a big screen TV I didn't want to watch my little TV, so I turned in the cable box and turned the room into a stamping room.

If I decide to watch TV with hubby, I watch with him, or watch something on my laptop if he's watching sports. Or just stay in my "studio" and enjoy the peace and quiet being creative.

Stamping in the kitchen where the light is best and I don't feel isolated. Storage of craft supplies in the living room and upstairs craft room (where I don't like to craft).

Dedicated room - when we bought this house [our retirement home] I told my husband that I was never having 12 people for dinner ever again and I made the dinning room my craft room. I do share it with him, I have a large desk/hutch combo and all the bookcases and drawers and he has a small desk. Only problem is that it's an open room right off the front door and everyone can see my mess!

I stole my son's bedroom when he went away to college. It is a very small room, and with a bookshelf, cabinet, and old kitchen table, there's no room to move. Well, there was a little room at one time. However, like bugga, I didn't like not knowing what was going on in the house. I couldn't hear the phone ring, or a knock on the door.
So, I go in and get stuff, and use it at either the kitchen table, or the dining room table.
I think I need to clear off the table in the craft room and get rid of it. Then I'll be once to move in that room.

On a formica-topped table in the living room. We do eat off it as well but our proper dining table (wooden, round) was so irritating to craft on as it had a bevelled edge and things didn't fit on it without falling off, that I got rid of it and now have this one.

Much nicer for crafting, easy to clean, and if someone comes over to eat I can just stick a tablecloth over the formica

I have two sets of craft drawers in the living room too, as well as using some bookshelves for my cardstock, big shot etc.

It's great because if my partner's watching tv it's still quite social as we're in the same space.

My office, which was an office, then mostly office with a small craft table, then two small craft tables in an L, then a larger craft table, then an even larger craft table (normal good desk size) and trimmer station plus several Alexas. (Thank you Ikea, for Linnmon table tops and expandable legs.)

But I Gelli plate and do other messy paint stuff in the kitchen - tile floors and stainless steel table. Raskog cart in dining room holds supplies.

I have one wall and the closet in our guest room. The wall has a Raskog cart, a workbench from Harbor Freight and a small DIY desk (slab of Formica on top of a small shelf on the right side, hooked onto the workbench on the left). The closet has a desk with a scanner, a printer, and some odds and ends, and a small bookshelf where my stamps, binders and ribbons live. I have a folding tray that I bring out if I'm going to do a lot of die cuts so I can put my Big Shot on it. It's two steps away from our living room, so if I hear something that DH is watching on TV that catches my ear, I'll wander around the corner to watch for a minute or two (or go sit with him if it's really interesting). He wanders in and out, too...

I have a semi-dedicated room. I did have it all for my crafts, but because I mainly use the dining room table to actually craft, DH has taken over part of the craft room. I use the dining room table because 1) natural lighting is better and 2) I felt so disconnected. The dog usually barks if someone comes up, but at the dining room table I can see out and know that he is barking at the deer or birds without having to stop and go look out. I have downsized/purged so much of my "craft room" that most of it will fit into the closet and I like that.

Desk in my bedroom but would love to be somewhere with better light and not so isolated. I have an old cape cod with tiny boxy rooms so don't really have a lot of options. i have a tv in my bedroom so that helps... Have to have some noise when I craft.

We do have a office/craft room but I didn't like being away from the family so set up a table in the corner of the lounge room so we can all hang out together.

I stamp at our dining room table. I usually stay at end farthest away from front door. You can see in to our dining room when you walk in the front door so I try to keep the clutter/piles to a minimum at the one end of the table.

DH (bless his heart) never grouses at me when the table gets cluttered. He knows how much stamping means to me and likes that I stamp there so I can see the TV when he's watching it in the living room and comment on things and listen to him.

I tried having a dedicated room in our house for stamping and that lasted less than a month. I felt isolated from DH and DS and moved myself back out to the dining room.

I do clear the table off for holidays/family dinners Otherwise, DH and I eat at the coffee table.

I have a long narrow craft room in my basement in Michigan. I don't have a designated craft room in my condo in FL. I have taken over a closet in one of our guest rooms upstairs. I wish it were safe to store my stamping stuff in my Garage in FL. We have a 1 car garage that I could make my craft room if it was ok to store my stuff there. So In FL I stamp standing at my kitchen counter and color etc at my dining table. Not ideal but it's ok.

My husband and I share a spare bedroom. I used to have it all to myself but we converted it when he got his current job which allows him to work from home most of the time. I am considering rearranging the family room so I can craft there. I can be a little noisy...

In my bedroom. My husband and I live with my Mom so I can take care of her. Our bedroom is the bonus room over the garage so there are only windows on the far end of the room.
I have a small table and all my storage drawers lined up along that wall.

Dedicated room in the basement, love that I can close the door if I need to escape from the world when I am in there and close the door on the way out if it looks like glitter explosion!

My "craft room" shares space with a Murphy bed. My stuff is stored in there, but I work at the kitchen bar. The fact that I live alone makes this situation easy. I only have to get out of my own way.

My crafting space is a walk-through FL utility room with cabinets, closet, and a sink where I stand to create. Oh, and there's the cabinet in the garage... and the closet in the guest room...

Dedicated room thankfully. Bought a home about 6 years ago and the Master is the only bedroom on the main floor. Hubby says, this has to be your craftroom or I will never see you. Gotta love a guy that says that!

I have an L-shaped kitchen and half of it is my craft cave. After his retirement, my husband offered me his office, but I still prefer my 1/2 kitchen.

A bit of my crafting room. I mean office that I craft in. I'm mainly trying to see if I can post a photo using the PC since I haven't been able to using my iPad. That's an Ikea Billy bookcase hung up on its side over my computer desk.

Default Designated Space

I turned our third bedroom into a craft, office, sewing area after our youngest moved. I have two file cabinets with a 6 ft. butcher block cabinet top placed on them for a desk I use to craft and also pay bills and do paperwork. . On the opposite side of the room is the same set up used for my computer, printer and books. On one wall my husband built open shelves for my stamp sets, embellishments, etc. There is room under the shelves for my sewing machine to stay set up and also my ironing board is up all the time. Seldom iron but comes in handy as an extra table.

I have a tiny L-shaped room under the slope of the roof on the second floor of my very small house. It's quite cold in winter and way too hot in summer, but has a window and a skylight so lovely natural light during the day.

I have 3/4 of a room, while the farm office gets the other 1/4. I can see the kitchen and dining room and can hear what's going on in the living room even though I can't see it. (And if I don't want to hear it, I can shut the door!)

One thing that seemed odd at first has turned out to be great. The only way to get to the downstairs bathroom is thru my craft room (old house, bathroom is a converted porch) which gives me easy access to a sink and means that I get periodic visits from my family members because, hey, why go up all those stairs when you don't have to? My desk is a former teacher's desk, so it is made to have someone sit on the other side which is also good for encouraging visitors to stay for awhile.

A dedicated room that I took over from being a second TV/reading room and then spare bedroom. I still use it for a spare bedroom with a blow up bed when my girls, their hubbys & the DGKids are here all at one time It's wonderful, even if it is in the basement. DH is a cabinet maker, so he has made me some wonderful storage pieces!!!!

As of right now, I have a dedicated room for my art studio.

However, I will most likely be moving at the end of February and will have to downsize to a 1BR unit. Kinda bummed about that.

Default Where Do You Stamp?

Dedicated 11 x 13 upstairs room, with my desk in front of a window which looks out over the countryside [we live on a hill]. In 2000 my hubby and kids had a beautiful desk built for me with larger slideout drawers in cupboards on each side where my stamps are single layer so I can see each one. I also have two bifold closests [more like a pantry with full shelving in them, and LOTS of cupboards. My hubby installed an overhead light with for daylight bulbs, so I have great lighting too. Am presently reorganizing the room so I can have friends come to "play".
