Temporary Craft Room Set Up and Supplies

Well, HELLO, Everyone!!

Did you miss me??  Life has been sooooo crazy over the past month and a half.  We moved out of our home the first week of January and have already been in two rental homes!  The first rental didn't work out (plumbing issues) so we had to move again this past Saturday.  We will be in this rental for the next 4 months until we move to Utah.

I had packed up all my craft room supplies and put them in storage, thinking that I wouldn't need them until we moved into our new build the first week of September.  I decided yesterday that I couldn't wait that long!  I had my husband go with me to the storage unit where we pulled out my Cricut and a couple other boxes of supplies.  I have now set up a temporary craft room in my master bedroom.  No more late night crafting but at least I have a place to release my creative expression!  I have missed it so much.  I took some pictures for you of my new set up.  

This is pretty much all I will need for the next 4 months.  Of course, I might need to head over to the storage unit and pick up a few more things.  ;)

I had to go and get new Cricut cutting mats since I'm not sure which box mine are in.  Plus I needed some new adhesive.  

I had some of my 12x12 paper in my scrapbooking tote and got this little stack at Hobby Lobby.

Gotta have my favorite Cricut carts available!!

Some embellies and tools!  I just need to find the box with My Pink Stamper Stamps in it!

A little Hobby Lobby ribbon!

So happy that I had some supplies still in my scrapbook tote!

My little craft area!  I feel very blessed!

I hope you are all doing well!  I will try to do better to update this blog.  We start the building process March 1st and then move to Utah at the end of May.  Wow!  Time is flying by so fast!



  1. hey Robyn, great to see that you are able to craft. Isn't it funny how we have sooo much stuff and always want more. But if we have nothing we are without we would be happy with 1/100th of what we own. LOL.
    Looking forward to seeing more of you.
    ps what do you think of the new Cricut?

  2. much is going on in your life, moving, I would really need to have a little spot for me to have fun. Can't wait to see some creations!! Lee-Ann :)

  3. Great to see you Robyn! Looks like you've got yourself a great little set up there. Looking forward to seeing what you create in your new space....enjoy the building process and your last few months in Oklahoma!!

  4. Hope all is well & many prayers for you & your family with you move =-)

  5. Good luck. Hope all goes well from now on.

  6. Robin,
    Where didi you get the cover for your cricut? If you can, please email me at

  7. Opps I mean

  8. Hey Robyn, great to see that you have a place to create! Yeah! Can't wait to see what you create!
    It sounds like you have your hands full for a while but how exciting! It will all come together soon..take care and prayers for a smooth transition!

  9. Hello Robin, so happy to hear about you, thanks for sharing your place for creations, looking forward to see your new creations!!
    Crafty hugs for you!

  10. With all that stress in your life I can see why you needed to have a place to release tension. So glad you found your Cricut and some supplies. Through all your posts I've never read how your husband can just up and move his practice to another state. He has to be dealing with a whole lot of stress also. May God bless you all and be with you through this change in your lives. I've missed you.

  11. So happy for you guys! We lived in a temporary place while we were building a few years ago. I have very fond memories of it. In fact, it is where I began my love for using my Cricut and following blogs...especially yours!

  12. Living in temporary space sounds stressful! Glad you were able to get yourself a mini crafty space, pretty sure I could not go that long with out crafting either!

  13. Glad you at least have some of your supplies to play with. I can't imagine trying to go for months without crafting. So excited for you and your family as you start your new adventure. It will be stressful but in the end you will have your dream house and the best part is you will be living near your family!

    Happy crafting!


  14. Hi! I am a big fan of yours! I'm so glad that you can make things again. I really love the things you make, they give me such great inspiration.

    Take care!

    P.S. What do you think about the new Cricut Explore?

  15. YAY! I was thinking about you yesterday and actually went on to your blog and didn't see any updates. So glad to see you back. Good luck with the building of your new home. It's an exciting thing but could be very stressful as well. Happy to see you and can't wait to see your creations again. :)

  16. Hi Robyn see you are really busy. Sure miss us some Robyn crafts and thoughts. I'm so confused about the Cricut Explore, was wondering if you had got to see it and what you think about it. Do you have a Silhouette and if so your thoughts on that. If you can't answer I sure understand. God Bless you and your family. I always came to your site for help, you where like my craft doctor. Thank you so much. Sure do miss your craziness!

  19. Hope you get settled soon~ Really miss your videos !

  20. Happy to see that you have a little space to get crafty in. :)

  21. How exciting building a new home. Your little craft table is so cute. I hope you can get back into enjoying a little crafting in transitioning into your new home. Post some photos of your projects!

  22. Great seeing you. I check everyday to see what you are up to. Happy scrapping and can't wait to see what you come up with. Hugs.

  23. Great to hear from you Robyn, thanks for the update. Miss hearing from you.

  24. Robyn, where did you get the cover for your cricut? Email me at

  25. So happy to see you back to crafting again and that you are all settled in your new place! XOXO, Julie. :0)

  26. Yes, I have been wondering about and check your blog to see if you have posted. I think this is good that you set up a craft area. Sept. is a long time to wait to craft. Time wil pass quickly and you will be moved into your new home.

  27. WHOA!!! I have not given up on you, Robyn....I literally check certain websites every night before bed & you are the 1st one I check. I was so pleasantly surprised when I saw something besides the boxes. Just an update knowing you & your family are doing ok. I know that sounds so weird because we do not even know each other, but I know you so well because of your website, & your family. I am wandering how you family feels about this move, especially the girls. I can only imagine. All I know is that you all are a great big family & have each other who are going through the same things. I pray everything transitions smoothly! Thanks for the "I'm doing ok", note!

  28. Hi i am Helene Maillet...from Canada..i would love to see more of your beautiful creative videos..i just enjoy them..

  29. What are the names of the cricut cartridges you keep close by for times like these? I'm always curious when we have so many - what are the stand by favorites. I hope your transition goes smoothly and you all find yourselves in your new home soon.

  30. Love your craft room! New Follower!

  31. Good to see a post from you again. So sorry you had to move twice--what a lot of work.

    Won't be long and you will be 'home'. That is where I live too, only over point of the mtn. to the north.
    Would be nice to meet you in person some day. Come to our thursday cricut club!

    I too wondered what you thought of the Explore. Does PC send you product to try anymore.
    Did you order it last week? I did and then cancelled it the next morning. I have the E2 and the Silhouette Cameo.
    I love my cameo and decided that it does the same things and a few more than the Explore does. The only thing that Explore did
    that Cameo doesn't do is have the two holders to write and cut without changing them out. (At least thats all I could figure out).
    maybe you know a lot more about it as the demonstrations didn't tell a lot about how the program really works.

  32. I can totally relate to needing a temporary craft space. We moved here a 1 1/2 years ago and will be in this rental until our house sells. I put most of my stuff in storage, but find myself digging through the storage unit for supplies I thought I could live without! I wish you all the best with your move!!

  33. Robyn we love you and miss you so much your children are very cute and handsome. congrats on your new home hope your craft room is huge.

  34. Online gaming sites are really great place for game lovers to get all kind of games which they would like to play. Spider Solitaire, Candy Crush Saga, Lego, Poker, PogOne, v.vv... also a one very famous game on internet to download and play with getting a fun.

  35. Robyn,
    I have been watching your videos for years. I have not watched any in almost a year. I became a teacher and my new career has taken all my time. However, I am back to watching and reading my favorite blogs (your my #1!!!) I have a cricut expression and I love it. However, I have very little space in my apartment and classroom for crafting....soooooo I went out and got the Craftwell ecraft. I was wanting to know if you have ever used this machine and if you have what did you think of it.

    Thank you in advanced for replying to my question. I truly hope your family is blessed and I will be praying that your move to Utah happens smoothly. Gob bless!
