Craft Room Tour: Gayatri Murali

Hi, Jessica here!  I’m super excited for today’s craft room tour!

I have long been an admirer of Gayatri Murali and I remember her sharing a sneak of her craft room creation last spring on her blog.  As I’ve been getting to know her better through “A Blog Named Hero” I decided to ask if she’d be willing to share more of her craft room.  Gayatri is an amazing paper-crafter and her design team resume and challenge wins certainly reflect that!  She designs for Penny Black, Pretty Pink Posh, Winnie & Walter, A Blog Named Hero, Curtain Call Challenge blog, Runway-Inspired Challenge blog, Tag You’re It Challenge blog, and is often a guest designer for many companies and challenges!  And now you can see where her magic happens!

Her craft room was a birthday present from her husband and it’s the stuff of Pinterest dreams! 🙂  She went from this (which is a gorgeous foyer…the home DIYer in me LOVES the striped wall):

She packs quite a punch in that space!  I love that everything is easily within reach when she’s working and it’s all organized!

Here are a few closer looks of her desk area!

And a couple photos of her supplies organized by categories and various shelves:

All stamp sets and embellishments in boxes

I also like the window full of cards!  Great inspiration to see everyday!

Thanks for visiting today and make sure you take some time to visit Gayatri!  Her designs are sure to inspire you!
