the new craft room + {contest}!!

i have been dreaming about a real workspace for years.
maybe when the kids move out i always thought.
it isn't really nice to be in a hurry for your 
ten year old to grow up and move out!

i decided to re-organize our storage/guest room/garage
and create my very own studio!

i have been ever so slowly adding goodies to my craft room.

now your job is to name it!!
i scrapbook, but mostly i create my {lollipops} cards.
i'm definitely a paper junky.
my 10 & 11 yo daughters will also be crafting with me!
Francesca likes beading and Soleil loves to draw.

maybe it will just be called the craft room?
or the studio?
or our workspace?
but i think you guys are more creative in this department
and can come up with a really fun name for us.

my girls and i will pick our favorite
and that lucky namer will win a set of
lovely lollipops {i heart you cards}!

love notes in a tin!
high quality card stock
6 cards 3 red 3 white
cards measure 2.20 X 4.12
"i heart you" printed on front, blank inside
front has heart punched corners
includes envelopes
comes in a sweet tin!

we really need your help!
leave your ideas in the comments.
enter as many times as you like!
the new name will be chosen and announced friday january 7th!
thank you!

updated:1/4 - the winner will also receive Scrapbooking Everyday Memories and

leave your idea for a craft room name and the lucky winner wins all of the above!!!

  1. The Ala Boutique. (Or Idea Room/Studio/Space/Cove/Corner)

    Ala= the last 3 letters of the girls in your family.

    I'm AWFUL with naming things...but I wanted a shot at winning those super yummy cards. :)

  2. Hi
    I thought I left a comment, but it didn't show up. I'll try again and hope it's not a duplicate.
    I think you should name the craft room- "The Factory"

    I think of a lollipop/candy factory- A Fantastic Factory of Drawing and Beading.

    Creative, beautiful things will flow from your Factory.
    There's my two cents- can't wait to see you and the girls next week.

  3. I left a comment already, but maybe it got lost with the switcheroo.

    I like using the name Lollipop somehow.


    Lollipop Factory
    Lollipop Shop
    Lollipop Fun
    Lollipop Creations
    Lollipop Dreams

    It's cute, catchy and describes each of the 3 of you in some way.

  4. I thought of another one!

    Lollipop Wishes

  5. I would love to have a room for my hobbies (job).. Suggestion for a name
    "Lollipop~Made with Love"
    Just makes me feel good to think about all the love shared in a room between mother and daughters working on projects.. you see I have two girls and I can relate..

  6. How about the Candy Box?

    I just discovered your blog, and I love it! *follow* Congrats on your new craft room for you and your family.

  7. The good ship lollipop!

  8. The Lollipop Kitchen

  9. I just renovate my craft's so fun isn't it!

    My suggestion is Lollipop Lounge!

  10. thanks everyone for the "lollipops" ideas. i am also looking for non-lollipops ideas if you have 'em ;) THANK YOU!!!!

  11. The Sunshine Room

  12. Magical Mystery Room
    Creative Cottage
    Imagination Nook

    Just off the top of my head. If I think of anymore I'll post another comment. Sorry if this is a repeat, but I don't think my earlier comment came up.

  13. I was thinking "Craft Attack!" or "Oz". I have a room in my house called Oz that is my sanctuary, it's where I can get away and escape and feel like I'm in a different place sometimes. :)

  14. "In my Own Little Corner" like from Cinderella where YOU and the girls can create and maybe sing the fabulous song .....see lyrics below

    But I know of a spot in my house
    where no one can stand in my way.
    In my own little corner in my own little chair
    I can be whatever I want to be.
    On the wings of my fancy I can fly anywhere
    and the world will open its arms to me.
    I'm a young Norwegian princess or a milkmaid
    I'm the greatest prima donna in Milan
    I'm an heiress who has always had her silk made
    By her own flock of silkworms in Japan
    I'm a girl men go mad for love's a game I can play with
    cool and confident kind of air.
    Just as long as I stay in my own little corner
    All alone in my own little chair.
    I can be whatever I want to be.
    I'm a slave from Calcutta I'm a queen in Peru.
    I'm a mermaid dancing upon the sea
    I'm a huntress on an African safari.. it's a dangerous type of sport and yet it's fun
    In the night I sally forth to seek my quarry
    And I find I forgot to bring my gun.
    I am lost in the jungle all alone and unarmed when I meet a lioness in her lair
    Then I'm glad to be back in my own little corner,
    All alone in my own little chair.

  15. We call lollipop's "Suckers"...
    How about...

    "Suckers and Scraps!"



  16. How about:
    Lollipop Cottage
    Lollipop Lovelies
    Lovely Creations
    Lovely Cottage
    or even just Lovelies.

    Once again it describes both the crafts and the lovely mother and daughter working there!

  17. Creative Corner
    Blessed Nest
    Sweet Inspiration..saw that on your blog but it could work
    Design Closet
    Princess Lair
    Sweet Shop

  18. Krystina's Kreations
    Krystina's Kraft Room
    Krystina's Kreation Room

    (Yes, I love spelling creation with a "k", lol!) :)

    Krystina's Kraft Nook

    The Lollipop Design Studio

    Kristina's Kreation Cove

  19. I am hoping to open a scrapbook store in a few years and will definitely be turning to all of you ladies for suggestions! How will you ever choose just one name?!? Anyway, my suggestion for your craft room is........Sweet Serendipity. Good luck on getting your room finished!

  20. The Rainbow Room. Where bright ideas and dreams come alive, inspiration flows and colourful memories are made.
    Happy Creating!

  21. The Memory Maker! Sounds nice I think. Thanks for the giveaway.

  22. Per my 6 year-old daughter's request to chime in: "The Club". Why? I ask. "Because clubs are secret. They make you feel special. And with a club, you share the same likes and ideas with the other people in your club. If her and her kids all go to The Club, they will always have a special place just for them." It was too cute of an answer not to share...even if it's not chosen. :) Thanks again for the opportunity!

  23. Such a fun idea... What about...
    Paper, Glue, Etc.
    Paper from A to Z
    A to Z Creativity
    Beads, Paper, Scissors
    Like Mother, Like Daughter Crafts

  24. Craftastic Creation Chamber (or Center)

  25. Confections, Cards & Crafts

  26. How about crafty corner? Not very good at room is still "unnamed". Good luck naming yours!

  27. The Ink Well?
    Inky Corners?
    Peace of Paper Room?

    Just some ideas : )

  28. meg wrote this under the January 7th craft room post so I am putting it here so the names are all together :) thanks all!!!


    Meg said...
    I think that it would be cool if you called it Bonus. Not "the bonus room," just bonus. Or The Arcade. Or name it after a favorite pet or family member. My dad works at a school where they named a new addition The Ben" after a girl whose last name was Ben and had passed away the year before. I thought that was such a cool thing!
