Inside My Space

We recently finished my new craft room (which is doing double-duty as my boys' playroom) and today I want to share some photos of my new space.  My goal was to post late last week, but we had some unexpected family "stuff" come up so I'm a few days late.  

I also want to let you know that I'm extending the deadline for my Amy Tangerine giveaway to next Sunday, June 29!


But back to my craft space...


The photo above is the view when you walk into the room.  As you can see, I need curtains for the windows (I'm still looking) and I need to hang some wall art (my boys are deciding between a few prints).

Just past the television is a wrought iron stand that holds all my wood-mounted stamps:


Skipping past the closet door for a moment, you then come to my paper storage.  I've had these Cropper Hopper paper holders for years.  I keep all my patterned paper sorted by manufacturer, save holiday prints, which are separated by holiday.


Next up is my desk and Expedit storage system.  I've got extra Snap binders, magazines, unmounted rubber stamps, card stock, 6x6 paper pads, Project Life cards, kits, paper trimmers, and a few other odds and ends in that storage unit. I love that thing!

On my desk, I have adhesive, journaling pens and markers, and my scissors.  I have a basket on the right side of the desk with a few random embellishments that I'm hoping to use soon.


Now, I'll go back to the closet, which is behind the desk.  In the closet I put three more storage pieces.  The brown piece on the right stores everything from stickers to washi tape to journaling cards to glitter.  Once I'm sure I like the order, I'll label all the drawers.

The red piece has four drawers and it holds my die-cutting accessories as well as some punches and embossing supplies.

The small red piece holds tiny embellishments, like sequins and wood veneer pieces.

The closet shelf holds some unfinished wood pieces and chipboard albums, as well as a couple home decor pieces that are in-progress.

Here's a peek inside one of the drawers in the brown piece.  


Leaving the closet, I have this dresser on the opposite side of my desk.  I want to refinish this, but I'm still debating if I want to keep it stained or paint it.  Anyone have a suggestion for me?


Inside the dresser, I have my fabric, stamp pads, mists, and some random embellishments + extra adhesive.  

Continuing the circle (of sorts), next to my desk I have this small bookcase from Target.  In real life, it's yellow, and not this weird neon-yellow/green color.  It holds some other in-progress projects.  As I moved rooms, I found several of these projects that I'd forgotten about...it's now my mission to get them completed!


On the other side of the room (next to my boys' storage), I have one last piece.  This holds my embellishments by manufacturer, my clear stamps, photos, some seasonal embellishments, and my Simons Says Stamp kits that I haven't un-kitted yet.  The magazine holders house my boys' Lego instruction booklets.


And that is my new space.  It's got great light, and I'm excited to get crafting in there!

Before I leave, I wanted to share my little crafting buddy:


I grabbed this pet bed on clearance at Target, and my cats (we have three) take turns napping in there.  This is Gracie, and she likes to "supervise" while I'm creating.  :)

Well, that's it for today.  I'll be back next week with the winner of my giveaway!
