My new crafty space

Today is a post with a difference. I am not showing what I have made, but rather where I make. A few months ago, hubby and I decided to take the plunge, sell our house and go full-time RV’ing. We found a fifth wheel that worked really well for us. It is a Teton Freedom Experience and is definitely designed for full-time living. We have plenty of space inside and plenty of cabinets for all our personal items and my also my crafting supplies. It is insulated enough to keep us cool, even in the Florida summer, and warm in the winter – though it is not likely that we will venture into colder climes during the colder time of the year.

Currently we are still in Florida and here you can see our rig being set up on our spot.

Another view now with all the slides out. It is amazing how much extra space that gives. Our unit is 39 feet long and 15 feet wide when the slides are out – not too different to a small apartment.

Prior to moving in, it was decided that the recliner was to go into the corner of the back section and that freed up a space big enough for my crafting/PC table. This was the same little table that I had used in our home.
Here you can see my table in place. Perfect placement for the computer, my glass mat and my wooden pencil case. Since my passion is coloring with my pencils and I mostly use digis, you already see the storage for my images right here.

Here is just a different angle, showing the armrest of the recliner and the placement of the printer. Spending evenings coloring and hubby in his chair is so cozy. I love the small living space!!

Obviously a girl has to have a few more crafting supplies than just digis on her computer and that has been accommodated in the bedroom. We have a full wall dresser and the top has these three cabinets that have been designated as my supply storage. I have not yet sorted it and I definitely can do a better job of organizing it, but that will still happen.

Here is a glimpse of the contents – still in a jumble. I need to decide exactly what I want in here as I do also have some items in a storage unit that still needs to be sorted too. 

I will probably try to show you how I make progress on the organization and if I make any changes. Once we get on the road, some things may change again to be sure everything goes down the road in good shape and those are also photos I can show you with regards crafting while full-time RV’ing.

  1. Wow! So glad to see y'all are making your dreams come true. It does look nice and cozy. A great place to craft and be with your spouse plus the bonus of traveling the country to many destinations. You'll get all your craft stuff sorted out and organized in time. I think most of us would be surprised at what we can live without. It's going to be a fun time in your life. [Bunny]

  2. How wonderful, Monica! thank you for sharing your new home with us, and your crafting area, too! It goes to show that we really CAN make gorgeous creations without a lot of fluff and clutter. Your cards are always so incredibly unique and pretty – thanks for the inspiration to do some more downsizing! I'm especially happy to learn that you are able to travel in such comfort and style! SO HAPPY FOR YOU! Thanks again for sharing, and I look forward to seeing some photos of places you visit, too! hugs, de

  3. How did I miss out on the fact that you folks went to an RVing lifestyle? I think your use of the space is incredible, Monica, and I envy you the simplicity! Now I'm more impressed than ever with your fabulous creations. 😀

  4. It is a very bold decision to sell the house and live in a trailer. But it's also a very interesting life. I admire you for this decision. Your new craftroom looks great, it feels as big as my cluttered room. Only you have perfect order and I can no longer move freely in my room. Is it time to sell the apartment …?
