Hello and welcome to our fun blog hop to introduce the amazing new publication- Creative Spaces Volume 3!  I find the creative spaces issues to be so inspiring (not just for my own space, but for design as well)!  It’s amazing to see what talented crafters, throughout the world, do with their spaces and I’m honored to be a part of it!  Not only do I have the fortunate opportunity to share our company space with you in this publication, but I’ll also be sharing a portion of my personal space, too (that will be over on my personal blog :))). Cool, right?

Here at Fancy Pants Designs, we have a very unique little space…it’s actually “planted” right in our warehouse… the walls and area are made from one of our trade show booths (some of you just may recognize it)!  When we relocated our offices 9 months ago, we didn’t end up with a lot of extra office-type space for a creative area…so, we came up with this fabulous idea to just build our own walls.  We’ve had a lot of fun in this space…craft days, visits from the PaperCraft Go-To Gals, designer visits and more!

So, here’s a peak at the issue (cover space is gorgeous, isn’t it?) and a few behind the scenes shots from our space are below as well!

I just love all of the fun ideas in the issue—here’s a few:Pinnable-panel_CSv3

Eeek!  Jared and Dawson getting a counter down for me when we were putting our craft space together–and making me very nervous being so high up on the crates!

And, our little guy, Holden, helping out in the office area portion of the photo shoot! {Not pretty enough yet!}
