The Pink Elephant - Creative Spaces


Welcome back to another special Behind the Scenes post where Ella's Girls are sharing their Creative Spaces with you!  If you've missed any of the previous posts, you can find them {here}.

Our next stop is with Kadie Ensley.

Hello Crafty Friends!  This is Kadie and I'm here to show you my little corner of the world :)

I moved last year and I feel like I'm still trying to make progress on getting my "new" space up to speed with my former space, but I'm going to hush the perfectionist in me today, because I truly am thrilled to share my retreat with you!

Several years ago my husband and I made a deal, he could get a motorcycle if I could get a craft room. He was more than agreeable. Little did he know he would never see me again. Haha. Only kidding (mostly). I saw this entertainment center and I knew the shelving and compartments would be perfect for the space I had at the time and I wouldn't have to part with it when we eventually moved. And so the fun began!


Now that you've seen all 3 corners of the room, I'll show you a little bit of how I organize things in it.


This filing drawer is perfect for all my colored cardstock!  


I decided that the best way to utilize my buttons was to put them in a spice rack. So I looked for one that had visibility of the buttons without having to take out each jar and one that was also round so that it didn't take up a ton of room on my desk when it turned.


Inside the cabinets of this unit are pull out drawers that were made for DVD's and CD's, but are also the a perfect match for stamp cases. I also knew that I wanted a good way to organize my dies and still keep them hidden. So I lined the inside of each cabinet with magnetic vent covers. 



 I have a variety of areas in my room where I store stamps, but one of my favorites is in these plastic storage containers. They are perfect because the stamps cling to the inside and each case has a handle, so I can transport stamps very easily if I'm doing a class or stamping with friends. They also work really well for Washi tape (6 rolls fit very easily) and other embellishments.

 And this, as they say, is where all the magic happens!

Thanks so much for taking a tour with me.
 Feel free to come for a visit anytime!

 Make sure to join us next Friday for a peek into Karina Minteer's craft space!

I am in love with your space. It's beautiful - and so (neat) and organized. The colors make me happy. I'm going to have to set up one of this magnetic boards for thin die storage - I've already lost a set (oops).
