craft studio envy: froekus

I’m happy to welcome Froekus to the blog today, to show you her craft space!

“Two and a half years ago me and my family were on vacation. My husband and I talked about my job, how I wasn’t happy with it anymore, and what I could do to remedy it. He reminded me of my love for making things. When my kids were little I used to craft all the time and make clothes for them. This time around, I wanted to make something new from something old. There’s enough new stuff in the world already; I saw it as a challenge to turn used things into new things!”

“And now I have my own craft space. My son gave up the attic so me and my husband could use it as our bedroom, and we turned our master bedroom into a studio. I go thrifting a lot, looking for fabric I can re-use. People even bring it to me now! I hope to officially open my studio in January, so I can give workshops. Everyone who likes it can come over and craft, and I have since given my first crochet lesson!”

  2. This is great!! Looks wonderful. I love it! You made it look so nice yet very functional. Great job!

  3. Wow, I’d move in there in a heartbeat. I’ve being trying to make my small room into a craft room, but I’ve got too much (non crafty) stuff. Trying to sell and give away some, but not quick enough ;-) On the other hand, I do not see myself crocheting sitting at a des instead of hanging on the couch.
    We will see. But this surely works motivating! Really cool, inspiring an calm space.

  4. Wow! What a fantastic space. What I would give for that, but I am happy for her that SHE has it. How wonderful! And it looks as though she has been doing some great crafting! xxoo JO
