I spent the whole morning today in the craft room, but I did not craft! After seeing the awesome craft rooms on Craftin Desert Diva's Craft it Up & Link it Up for this week, I thought it was about time I had another move around and sort out.
Grab a coffee and then settle down for a peak into my little world :-)
So here are a couple of before photos - bit messy.
My room is in a corner of the basement and those two windows are the only natural light source.
And now for the makeover.
Now for a little closer look at each section. Working our way around the craft area, from left to right. This first section below, the rolling trolley on the left contains all my scrap papers, and scraps of solid colours. The white shelving unit - top shelf, 8.5" by 11 solid colours are in those magazine holders. My little X-Cut paper trimmer and my Martha Stewart trimmer. The iris cases on the second shelf, hold wooden stamps, adhesives and special papers. My Martha Stewart score board sits on top. The two photo boxes, one holds floral embellishments and the other my glue guns. The bottom shelf holds Chirstmas papers, Christmas wooden stamps, heat embossing glitters and heat gun.
On the side of that white unit I have put some magnetic sheet to hang up the only Spellbinders dies I have - sad in it :-)
Onto my desk, this is the little area I work in, I have my Spectrum Noir pens and some little bits and pieces. Over to the right there is where you can see my Silhouette Cameo.
Next the other side of my desk. On the wall unit, some wooden stamps up top, working down, my little containers of brads, then some inks and art glitter. Next some glossy accents, embellishments and the more glitter and flocking. On the shelf of my desk, the first little unit on the right is where I keep scissors, craft knives, some inkers and misters, pop dots and foam tape, and my brayer. The next two are full of bling, pearl dots, embellishments. The next two containers hold the small amount of acrylic stamps and some wooden stamps.
Next stop is another spot for paper stacks, 12" by 12" solid colours and my ink pads. Also my little calender and notice board to keep track of my DT commitments.
The photo boxes hold pre-folded cards and envelopes. See there, that is how big my new little sewing machine is - isn't she cute. My big one sits nicely under the desk, the little one fits nicely over to the left when not in use. The pencil holder unit, and the drawer holds my scraps of ribbon.
This is my home made photo box. It is sitting on my ribbon storage (the four drawers), general ribbon, then xmas ribbon underneath, then themed ribbon, and then twine and stuff. Next to it you can see my rolls of vinyl and in the drawer are lots of bits and bobs, from packed buttons, to embellishments, stickers etc. The fancy box to the right holds a lot of the cards that I have made.
My Cuttlebug and it's folders sit on my kids craft drawers. I have turned it so that they can still get into the drawers for their things, in the mean time, the top is great for me to use my Cuttlebug.
And there you have it - my nice little cosy area - all nice and tidy and ready to get back in there and craft.
I hope you have enjoyed taking a look around my craft room. Now you have to head on over to Craftin Desert Diva's and show us all your craft space.
Thanks for stopping by today.
