So as you know, when I attended the quilt festival, they had foam tiles throughout the booths. I had to have some in my crafty room! So I went to foamtiles.com and ordered nice light wood foam tiles.
Each tile is 2 feet squared and come with two removable edges for corners and sides.
I took everything off the floor in my crafty room and got ready to “install” my tiles!
Mr.X (the boyfriend) was so busy snapping pictures for my blog, that I placed all the tiles myself. Lol but it is so easy, honestly, even a ten year old can get foam tiles on the floor! 🙂
Raymond and Jeanie had quite the day supervising!
My crafty room wasn’t exactly squared to fit all the tiles, two sides of my room’s tiles had excess foam. But it was NOTHING my amazing contractor couldn’t handle!! 🙂
He measured and cut my tiles to size, and VIOLA!! 🙂
And I’m set! 🙂
Cutting fabric can be quite time consuming and painful on my feet from standing, but these foam tiles really help!
They’re affordable and come in different sizes, thickness, colors and patterns! 🙂
Do you have any foam tiles or mats that make it easier on your feet when you craft?
I will, next, talk about my new quilters designs table… It took me three days to complete it.. Lol
It was such a setback and kept me from what I planned on doing last weekend, but I’m catching up!
Stay tuned for that and more!
Thanks for reading!
Toodles for now,
Diana, Jeanie and Ray<3

Those tiles are awesome -I didn’t know they came in wood grain.
Thank you! 🙂
I discovered them at the quilt festival, they had them under all the booths! It was so nice and plush, that I asked one of the ladies at a booth, and she said they got them at foamtiles.com 🙂
Surely enough, they have different patterns of tiles and thicknesses, and really are a nice edition to my crafty room!!! Lol I even sit on my floor every now and then when I’m tired of sitting. 😛
Hi Diana, I think you’ll love those! My studio is in my basement, with padding and carpet on concrete. Of course the carpet helps, and I always wear shoes with good support when I’m working. But when I’m cutting, pressing, or quilting (long-arm), I also stand on chef’s gel mats. They’re usually pretty pricy. I have 3 and I bought them at an odd discount store for $20 each. Now that I have them, I wouldn’t give them up.
Oh I love them already!! 🙂 and yes, carpet helps, but gel and foam mats and tiles work best! 😉
I have a couple of gel mats in my kitchen, which I also love! 🙂
