Craftroom Transformation: Kitty Stamp Storage, foam stamping, coloured pencil

As part of my Craftroom transformation, I decided I wanted to have decorated boxes for my stamps and other things. For my first decorated box, I painted a small Tjena box from Ikea and added a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp coloured with pencil. Rather fitting for a box with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

Craftroom Transformation: Phase I - Painting

I've been thinking about paint colours for months and months and months. I finally decided on shades of green

This is the second post in my series about my craftroom. The Introduction post shows the rooms I am working in how I made the decision to transform my craftspace from one small room into a much larger room.

Craftroom Transformation: Introduction - The Tale of Two Rooms

My crafting space was cramped and messy and impossible to add anything more. I decided, as a birthday gift for myself, to make a change.

To keep the post size manageable, this is going to take a few posts to go through the tale of how I go from this above to the new craftspace (that I am still working on as I write this *laugh*)
