Where Bloggers Create - my attic craft room

Karen @ My Desert Cottage is holding her annual "Where Bloggers Create" party tomorrow and foolishly I have decided to add my attic craft room to the show and tell list.

So, this is where the magic happens.........................

love my pretty pink Dell

love collecting pretty tins and boxes to store my stash

the shelves hold my stash of cardstock and pp's
storage boxes beneath hold most everything else!

I bought the plaid 9 star wall hanging from an Amish lady in Lancaster PA.
She took it down off her wall so that I could hang it on mine.
I keep all my paints and ink supplies on this little set of shelves

the wire Eiffel Tower was a gift from the Quimper Club.
It holds my ever increasing collection of altered tags from the Trendy Tag Swap on UKS.

looking up to the gallery above my table
the Attic Babies are from Marty Maschino,
 the iconic "Keep Calm" sign was another gift from the Quimper Club.
Cath Kidston bunting makes me smile!

This poster from the Dallas Museum of Art,
"Dorothy" by John Singer Sargent,
inspires me.
Mr Ben, my constant companion and muse is always up in the attic with me

It's been fun showing you around my play room - I hope you enjoyed the tour
 and will come back and visit me again, soon.
If you have the time why not pop over to Karen's 
for more peeks into


  1. Wow Maggie - what a lovely big room and loads of lovely goodies in there. Did you do the Wedding Ring quilt on the wall? Love the Amish one.

  2. OMG, I love your space! So full of personality! And you have so much stash!!!

  3. I want your space and failing that, I want you to come and make my craft space look nicer. No wonder you get so inspired in there x

  4. what a lovely craft space....i wish i had something a fraction of the size! I have one little cupboard in the dining room and have to use the dining table! I love how you have decorated the room.

  5. It is a super space - I love the quilts that you have hanging too. I also love your profile picture with your cup of tea/coffee - that is how I like to craft - but have learnt to keep my tea away from my projects :D

  6. Love it Maggie especially the quilt, bunting and Eiffel tower. You lucky lady!

  7. I'm so jealous of your attic.You have a wonderfully inspired crafting space.I love the Eiffel Tower display and bunting.But the best thing for me is Mr Ben-what a fabulous dog!

  14. Maggie--- I cannot believe your scrapping passion!! You are amazing. This room is filled with so much stuff --- it really is an obsession isn't it!! For me -- its really special to see where you sit when you write your beautiful blog -- it helps me to connect with you.

    The star quilt is exquisite and I love the story about how it arrived in your possession. The Eiffle tower is perfect for your tags -- (I see my little nest tag hanging there too!)

    I think I am coveting that magnificent painting table -- it is amazing!!! And your sweet Mr. Ben is indeed a precious companion while you work your magic.
