My Craft Room

Hello bloggers, if your like me I like to see what every ones craft rooms or craft spots look like. I thought I would show you mine. I have 2 different areas right now that I have craft stuff in.
When I first got my Cricut my husband built me this craft cart, which is very handy. I love it. Then I bought the cart to the right at Bed Bath and Beyond for $20.00 (good deal).

Both sides of the cart flip up to make extra room to work. Great for mats and sitting my Gypsy on when using it. I then bought the milk crates at WalMart for $3 each and hung file folders in them to sort my papers. My Cuttlebug folders are in the very bottom right plastic container. My Cuttlebug is in the next shelf with some Tim Holtz die cuts. Then next my created cards in the Rubber Maid container. On the top shelf I have my paper cutters and Martha Stewart Score Board. The drawer holds miscellaneous items like my Cricut tools, extra blades, tape for my ATG gun and I keep my Gypsy there when not in use.
The little cart that is to the right holds my scraps and my Cricut cartridges. I only have 18 carts so far so it works for now. I suppose in the future I may out grow this drawer and have to move them. These carts sit in my dinning room which we never use since my sons have grown and moved out. My husband also uses the Cricut to cut his vinyl so I think the Expression is going to stay in this location for a while. Next stop my craft room.

Here is what my craft room looks like from the door. It's not very big I think my husband said it was 10' x 9". But it's mine and I love it.

To the left is my sewing machine that sits on my husbands grandmothers old sewing cabinet. My great grandmothers hand sewn quilt is hung on the wall. The plastic stacked drawers hold some of my yarn. The plastic drawers will soon be replaced by wire drawers from Ikea.
To the right of that under my window is my table where I cut my fabric. You can see the purse I knit and felted this week. I just need to attach my handle and it will be done. See my cute Yorkie stuffed animal. I have 2 Yorkies and when I saw this stuffed one I just had to have it.
Turning right again you can see the wonderful Ikea draws my husband bought me for my yarn. Love all my yarn! Next to that is my little antique desk and chair that belonged to my husbands family. I do card crafting there and take my card pictures there. I made the board above my desk with a foan board covered with fabric and ribbon. Above that I have a runner light (bought from Ikea) that puts out a ton of light for crafting.

To the right of my crafting desk you can see the new Jetmax Cubes I purchased last weekend at a Craft Warehouse sale. I got 6 of them and I put them all together by myself. I did have my husband hang the Ribbon organizers because I was afraid if I put them up they would fall down. Above you can see a shelf we bought at Ikea (my husband hung it) that hold knitting books and stuff.
I got all my stuff on them and love the way they look. I can't believe how much crafting stuff these little babies will hold.
This is actually 4 Jetmax cubes. Each cube came with only 1 drawer so I put all the drawers on the bottom and bought some plastic containers at the Dollar Tree to put in the top spaces. The first two drawers to the left hold all my brads, stickers, gems and embellishment items. The third drawer holds my punches (Martha Stewart punches are up on my ribbon shelf). The last drawer on the right holds my embossing heat gun and hot glue gun. Can you see my cute little Cricut Create. I use this when I do not need to use the Expression. Next to my Create is my Cinch binding tool which I also love. We'll that about wraps it up. I hope you enjoyed the tour of my craft areas.

God Bless you all,
