My Play Room

When we moved into our current home in November of 2015, I was "tickled pink" to have a wonderful room to call my own. Not only that, it is the largest room in the house.

I have two large desks in the center of the room and most of the wall space is filled with shelving units and drawer units. The accent color I used is bright pink. 

I. love. my. room.

I named it my Working Studio, in an attempt to capture the room's purpose. It's my cre8tive space (hence the word Studio) but it's also where I "work" preparing conferences, working on writing assignments, etc. (hence the word Working).

The name never really stuck. Our autistic son Brock refers to it as "Mom's Office" while my husband just calls it "Your Room." More times than not, I referred to it as my "Happy Place."

Then, mid-year of 2019, I did some reworking of my blog. I'd always had the name Cre8tive Play, but I actually purchased the domain so I could use At the same time, I wanted to rebrand my room - so I renamed it. It is now simply called my Play Room

I. love. my. Play. Room.

I thought I'd add some pictures (periodically) so you can see some of what I love here in my Play Room.

These four drawer units were purchased second-hand. The two on the left came from an auction and cost me a total of $3. I found the two on the right a few years later (and a 300+ mile move south) - at a thrift store in our little town. They cost me $20. The drawers are interchangeable. The thin drawers are the perfect height for wood-mounted stamps. All of the drawers are big for 8 1/2 X 11" paper. I store a variety of items in these drawers - such as wood-mounted stamps, Stampin' UP! punches (even the whale kind), embossing powders, ink pads, and lots more. These units sit directly behind my stamping desk, so they are within easy reach.

This is the view as I sit at my stamping desk in my Play Room...

There is so much that I love showing in this photo.

Copics - Although not every color they make, I have a nice collection!

Ink Pads - After researching options, I chose (and purchased) Taylored Expressions ink pads when they were on sale. 

Cell Phone Holder - It was handmade by my brother-in-law.

Stamping Tool (to use with Misti) - It's a glass doorknob my grandmother gave me when I was a child after I found it in her closet and fell in love with it. My uncle took my idea and mounted it on wood for me. I love it!

Globe Tape Holder - It was given to me by my sweet daughter who knows I love globes.

Teddy Bear - It was my grandmother's.

Tools - These were my dad's. When we moved him to assisted living and emptied his home, I chose a couple of his tools to keep.

To the right of the picture I have a perfect view of my son Brock's rocking recliner where he is often seen sitting, rocking, and watching videos.
