Just last week, I showed you a book by Cut Out + Keep and wouldn’t you know, this week they’re returning the favor by featuring my Craft Headquarters and Travel Studio on their special feature, Craft Room Tours.
I have to be honest, when Cat, CO+K’s founder, first approached me to participate in this feature, I thought “Why in the world would anyone want to see my “craft space?”
I’m sure you too have seen those glowing photos of pristine craft rooms with sparkling white cabinetry, appliances, and lighting. They are usually decorated with functional and fashionable decor that any crafter would envy. I swoon over those pictures… and then look over at my messy apartment bedroom/craft space in dismay.
Lucky for me this experience has changed my attitude. The best part about participating in this interview is that it helped me to rethink what a craft space is and what one really needs to practice their craft. It made me question whether a studio has to be confined to any one place. Why can’t my craft space be anywhere and everywhere I take my crochet? But most importantly it inspired me to be grateful for what I have.
So head on over to my interview to see more photos, learn what I keep in my travel studio and where I go for inspiration, read my tips on how to organize your supplies, and see where Hodge and Podge live when they’re not on the road with me. I hope you enjoy this little sneak peak into the world behind the picnic.

Thanks, Tajana! I painted the chairs during a vacation at home nearly ten years ago. It’s one of my prized treasures. 🙂

You can’t because if you do so it means you are crafting anything!!! Oh, I’ve promised myself that I will keep my den always tidy but it is impossible when you are having the creative moment!!

So true! The messier I am, the more creative. 🙂

I am off to see it now! Like you I have a little travel kit which goes ever where with me. When I go on an actual holiday I have trouble finding room for clothes because of the books and craftables. 🐨
