We head to Winter Park, Florida and go behind the scenes at Sarah Hearts to see how Sarah organizes her craft supplies.
My favorite thing about the space is that it’s filled with all my favorite things: bold florals, inspiring quotes, horse decor, and of course all my supplies!
Tell us about your space
My craft room is the first bedroom you see when walking down the hallway in our home. It’s about 10’ x 10’ and is the smallest room in the house. I’m a bit spoiled and don’t have to share the room with my husband and I’ve been able to use it for work, although my projects usually spill out into the rest of the house. This room functions as both my office and my studio. So I’m constantly juggling craft project clutter and clean desk space. One side of my L-shaped desk, which I built into the wall, houses my iMac and the other, longer side is used for creating. I most often am creating projects for my blog here but I also used the desk space for sewing, which is one of my favorite hobbies.
What have you done to make your space cosy, beautiful or inspiring?
The walls are painted in Glidden’s Soothing Green Tea, which ironically enough is pretty soothing! I’ve try my best to fill the space with colorful things and cute details that I love without making it feel too busy or cluttered.
How do you keep organized?
This is tricky when I’m constantly working on multiple projects at once. I try to keep most of my supplies in the closet, which I added shelving too. Creating a space for everything and labeling it has been really helpful too.
Any tips & tricks for organising supplies?
I love the stackable containers from The Container Store. They are modular and all stack. I’ve also gotten in the habit of cleaning up my supplies every time I complete a project.
Which are your favourite possessions and are there any of your own creations on display?
I love my framed print by Emily McDowell. It’s a funny quote that’s a great daily reminder for myself. Most of my own creations are displayed throughout the rest of the house so there aren’t really any of my own creations on display in my studio.
How do you organise your inspiration and ideas?
I have a small cork board above my desk that I constantly update. I use it as my tangible Pinterest board and often display inspiring quotes on it and favorite photos (like the one of my husband with our horse and dog).
Where do you look for inspiration?
I get a lot of inspiration by traveling and seeing new places. I’m also inspired by our 1960’s Florida home. It’s pretty much been a blank canvas in which I’ve been able to shape and create just the way I want!
If you had three wishes, what would you do to make it the dream space?
- I’d love to have a space that had at least 3, large windows!
- I’d love to have a large space that has lots of desk space and a large worktable (large enough to cut large pieces of fabric on)
- I’d love to have a space large enough to host workshops and events in! Maybe one day!
