Make your craft space an oasis! These ideas range from organization, to decor, and useful crafting tools...

Hey y’all! Notice any positive changes to the blog lately? I’ve been working extra hard ‘behind the scenes’ prettying this website up! Hope you like it! I was thinking about craft rooms today, and with a space dedicated to creativity there are A LOT of accessories you can add easily and cost effectively.

Even if you don’t have a craft room you can still add certain objects of interest, and organization accessories which will easily help create the space you want. Hopefully this is a good shopping list for you to consider! When shopping for specific craft ideas I keep in mind the reviews and quality of our purchases. Also ask yourself, ‘Is each item worth it for my passion?’

1. | Wall Mount craft storage rack, and it actually comes with baskets!

Ok, when I found this I was seriously so excited! I personally have one wall in mind that this would look absolutely amazing on. It’s PERFECT if you have a smaller space to work with. Ribbons, jars, fabric, sizzors, needlework accessories, yarn, paper craft items… really you can store just about any accessory on this nifty wall mount!

2. | Over the door basket storage.

Hey knitters and crafters! Look what I found! Is this idea gorgous or what? I REALLY like that it hangs beautifully on the door. Oh and you could also think of using this for your fabrics collection too.

3. | Folding sewing-table with wheels. 

Can we talk about how awesome this sewing table is for a minute?! If you have a small space to work this would be a great addition. When you’re done, just fold it up, and put the table in your closet. Side note, this was the best photo I could find of it. There’s a ton of awesome 5 star reviews for this also!

4. | Joey sewing kangaroo kabinet.”

Is this cozy looking or what? A basket for your fabrics, drawers for organizing, a silhouette, flowers, a quilted wallhanging, and an organizer for threads. I adore the way this corner is laid out for some personal display inspiration. This is something I would like to do! Perfect and simple for even the tiniest of spaces dedicated to making crafts.

5. | Sewing chair with seat storage.

Take a look at this, how nifty! I was thinking not only would this chair be great for extra sewing storage – but what about your crochet and paper craft accessory storage as well?! So neat, especially for small spaces!

6. | 6-Shelf Craft Organizer.

It’s the best photo I could find. It actually reminds me of those hanging shoe organizers. If you already have one in your closet why not use that to copy this idea for your space? Instead of using it for your shoes, put your yarn, sewing, and craft accessories in it. Then you can and hang it up around your crafting oasis. For this one though if you look on the sides it will also hold papers and other items too! Best part is this is under 10$ with great reviews too.

7. | Easel/wall mount craft storage rack.

I found this paper mount and had to share how awesome it looks. It’s also decent with the functions it has. Of course it also depends on what type of crafts you like to do in your spare time. This easel also converts to a wall mount storage unit too. Great for those of us that love working paper crafts!

8. | Photo and Craft Keeper.

This is awesome if you enjoy paper craft organization as much as I do! It’s helpful for loose paper storage and useful for simple organization, but I’m also thinking this would be GREAT for sorting small items like needles, buttons, specialty craft pens etc. if you have a small desk like I do this doesn’t take up a lot of room either.

9. | 10-Drawer Rolling Cart.

As crafters we tend to accumulate a lot of small accessories. Rolling carts with a lot of drawers work GREAT in super small spaces or corners. If you have just a desk to work with this will save you a ton of time trying to think of ways to organize all of your random craft accessories easily.

10. | Stackable Caddy Organizer.

Now this is excellent for our ribbons, glitters, glues, needles, and smaller objects. I think caddies are great for those of us who love to just chill on the couch or on our comfy bed and knit, sew, make jewelry or just something random. Simply take your caddy with you, and you’ll have everything you need. This would also be perfect for those long road trips you will take every now and then, and if you’re the passenger keep yourself entertained using this caddy with organized smaller crafts!

20 Ideas For The Perfect Patriotic Party | Budget Friendly Decorating

Hi y’all! It’s Summer time! With patriotic celebrations like Independence Day and Memorial Day around the corner you’re probably thinking, you just don’t have the time or finances to celebrate with some fun patriotic nick nacks and decor this year. Don’t miss out! I have some festive ideas you can put together last minute!

Fun fact! Most of our families Independence Day and Memorial Day festivities end up being outside. Outdoor patriotic parties are super fun however planning them can be a bit of a stressful scenario. You may have kids at your party that love to get things dirty or those kiddos will just tear random things up, because well they’re kids 😉 . Your party might be outside exposing you and your guests to all sorts of instant weather changes, you may also have a super tight budget. Here’s a couple of very real scenarios for you…

So you spend your hard earn income on expensive table top decor, and fun nick nacks to take photos with, creating fun memories for you and yours. What if you spent ALL that time, effort, and hard-earned finances for your friends and family to enjoy themselves only for the weather to turn on the event? Everything then is just ruined. All your decor, the food… everything. Not fun!



Or you want to have festive patriotic get togethers indoors. You’ve invited all your guests, the food is great but the party decor is just a bit blan, because you planned with a very tight budget… Your stressing about food, drinks, and don’t have the time or finances to care about decor and fun nic nacks for your guests. However when the time comes the party kind of ended up falling flat. Your friends came, took a few photos, ate some food, but there wasn’t really a fun “wow” factor you could have put together easily and even with the smallest of budgets.

I’ve seen these scenarios happen before, and it’s a huge bummer! Well here’s where I come in! I love helping others decorate on a practical budget, and if these decor items get ruined either by fun loving kids, bad weather, or wear and tare… it’s alright you will save a TON here with these durable and fun patriotic nick nacks for less!

Y’all know I constantly RAVE about Dollar Tree on this blog (Check out the “You May Also Like” section at the end of this blog post for more Dollar Tree decor ideas!) . Ah yes I’ve mentioned using Dollar Tree decor several times before on this blog, and I will continue to mention how much I enjoy the festive decor for just 1$ and in bulk! Of course if you order online you will have to spend about 5$ on shipping but you’re saving so much! To keep on budget for me that’s a steal for all of the super cute decor and crafty items I’m getting! I hope these ideas will help you plan the perfect patriotic summer party creating wonderful memories and fun photos for you and yours. Let’s get started!

Fall Fireplace Tour |

Hi everyone! Welcome and happy almost Thanksgiving! I know we’re all excited for Christmas, but at the same time it’s a bit hard saying “goodbye” to Fall for me. So today I’m continuing part 2 of my Thanksgiving prep decor ideas. I decided to share a few simple REALLY last minute decorating ideas using mainly dollar tree pumpkins, harvest themed decor, and florals.

Hi internet friends! Let's hang out, and take a tour of my DIY Fall harvest fireplace today!

 

I wanted the feel of the decor to be super family friendly, and an easy transition into winter themed decorating. Not only that but most of the harvest themed decor are from Dollar Tree! Let’s grab a cup of coffee, and let’s get into the Fall Harvest Thanksgiving fireplace decor tour!

I love decorating with lanterns, those gold pair on the mantle are only 9$ at World Market at the moment. I spread out some Spanish Moss from Dollar Tree along with some leaves. The Autumn Greetings sign is also from Dollar Tree as well!

I just adore little harvest people so I spread them along with twinkle lights and lanterns on the floor of the fireplace. I found a bucket at GoodWill for 3$ and placed DollarTree seasonal foliage with some cute Harvest people heads, and twinkle lights. I just had fun with it! Dollar Tree has some super cute seasonal signs as well, highly recommend you check those out. The fun designs and style are a big competitor with those that I have seen in department stores.

My love for lanterns of all kinds really shows in these photos! Both of those lanterns on the floor are from Walmart for under 10$ as well! I hope these photos and ideas give you some good inexpensive and free ideas to decorate this season. You don’t have to break bank to have a cozy seasonal decorated home.

This week is Thanksgiving and I know we are all scrambling for ideas, and freebies. No worries friends, I got your back! I hope you all have wonderful day! Happy decorating everyone! Please let me know if you enjoyed this post, and would like more! Happy decorating friends!

6 Free Vintage Inspired Botanical Printables |

Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well! Normally in past August’s in Texas by now it’s triple digits where I am. Boiling hot like the fires of Mount Doom in the land of Mordor, but at the moment we have been having some very nice rain lately. I love it!

Chatty Crafting DIY Summer free-vintage-botanical-wall-art-prints-pinterest-six printables prints

Rainy Fridays only encourage me to get cozy, chill with some coffee, and indulge in my Pinterest pinning habit. If you’re a friend of mine on Pinterest you know I adore wall galleries. I have come across a lot of vintage/antique inspired ideas, and thought why not make some myself! Then a few other thoughts rolled in my noggin… ‘Why not make a new blog series where I just design whatever the heck I want, and share it?!’ Thus the birth of Freebie Fridays has begun!

Another pointless fact about me, my favorite color is green. So I would like to dedicate the first Freebie Friday to some greenery. I decided to create a set of six free vintage-inspired botanical patterned prints.

When you click on the images you want down below; you will then be lead to your instant digital downloads. These are all high resolution, 8×10, with a white matte border, and ready for framing. You can also zoom in or out your file, instantly save your image, or automatically print your downloads. Feel free to reblog, share, pin anything you would like! Enjoy!

Dollar Store Decor | Spa Bathroom On A Budget | Updated 2017


(Disclaimer: Hey everyone, heads up! This post contains affiliate links. If you purchase anything with the links I’ve shared I may receive a small commission. Happy decorating!)  

chatty crafting affordable-spa-nautical-bathroom-decor-dollar-store-diy-craft-pinterest.

Hello and welcome back everyone! Let’s dive right in today. I’m going to share with you how I created my own budget friendly coastal spa-like bathroom display!

Simple and affordable coastal spa-like bathroom decor ideas from Dollar Tree!

 

WHAT YOU NEED:

 


Dollar store vases and #floral arrangement #ideas |

Arrange Your Decor 

Declutter your counter space and stage your decor! When in doubt work with the “Staging Rules of Three“. While I am not a professional decorator I enjoy reading up on tips and tricks from the pros; especially when on a tight budget you still want your decor to be arranged nicely and pleasant to look at. Please also note that these items are seasonal at Dollar Tree. 

Floral Placement 

Try to make your floral arrangement lengths match your vase lengths for this look. One towering floral, and one smaller floral arrangement is what I decided to go with.

Vase Fillers

Fill your hurricane vases with sea shells, and your floral vases with stones. For this display I used some shoreline treasures I have collected over the years as well. Have fun with your vase filler options!

Here it is, the outcome! This dollar store display looks SO much more expensive than it actually is.

A beach themed bathroom idea on a tight budget. I think this would be great as apartment/small bathroom decor if you're not into nautical themes, but if your more of a coastal decorator like me. I like this spa-like vibe. Dollar tree silver tray, seashell vase fillers, river rocks... #dollartree #decor

Affordable #dollar #store #coastal #bathroom idea!

Here is also another option and updated picture! I got this new glass candle holder from World Market, and I thought it added some nice detail for just 5$. I will post more updates along my decorating ventures as well. 🙂

Please feel free to repin, share, and comment. I would love to know what you think! Thanks for stopping by, and happy decorating!

Why I Started A Blog |


 

Sometimes my projects come out super disorganized and really honestly just plain tacky. Other times my projects turn out even better than what I had envisioned, and I am confident of the outcome.

Hello and welcome to Chatty Crafting!

I’m a graphic designer, DIYer, antiquing, decor lover, coffee drinker, and crafting enthusiast. I am always inspired to try something different. Most of my life I have been somewhat of an odd ball. In my early 20’s I decided to accept these unique traits of mine. Better late than never I suppose. So I encourage anyone reading this to realise how uniquely beautiful and loved you are!

My husband actually encouraged me in my life’s quest to constantly live in a creative inspired mindset. He was the one who recently pointed out, “You are happiest when you’re doing a craft.” Now while I do enjoy graphic design, every now and then I would go out on a whim and just get my hands dirty. Some of those projects are still in our home, and even get complimented on by visitors. Some are just to get my hands dirty, and thinking outside of the box.

Let’s face it we ALL love compliments. And those compliments really encouraged me to keep getting my hands dirty, make a mess, and just create something from nothing, or restore something to new beauty. Even just try out other creative thinkers inspired ideas, with my own twist.

I’m going to be real here with these two confessions. ‘Pinaholic’ and or ‘coffee addict’ are words that perfectly describe me. On a daily basis you can find me on my computer with a cup of coffee in hand, and pinning away! Recently I have been clicking on pins that caught my attention, and they did their jobs well! I truly enjoy reading about those who have followed their passion, and who help others think creatively. I hope you find my future public victories, and epic fails entertaining as I step out into the world of blogging.

On the occasion I will talk about other things, as a part of this blog is ‘Chatty‘ Crafting. Feel free to join in on the conversation. I hope to make this a fun place! Thank you for reading, it truly means a lot!
