Over the last year, I have been inspired by many of your craft rooms and the craft spots I've seen on some peoples blogs. So today, I will post photos of my craft spot. Warning - this is a long post!
Okay, second, on to the storage system. I originally had all my stampin up sets tucked away inside an Ikea desk, nestled in target CD storage baskets. That worked fine, until I started by A*Muse stamps and other single stamps. So below you see the SU sets in the desk and then you see the printer desk turned on it's side and hung on the wall with the A*muse
Next is tools. We are no longer interested in pretty. This becomes purely functional. The metal shelf here is tucked away in a corner and it holds many of my tools including the embossing heat element, the flowersoft, the smooch, etc.
As for my cutting and scoring, I took over the pub table and am always fighting for table space here. My family uses this workstation a lot, so when I'm in the middle of crafting, I put my paper cutter and scorer there, but often move it off, when not in use. I love using the pub table because it's high and it's very comfortable for cutting since I don't have to bend down.
A lot of my other tools wind up in the plastic drawers next to the desk or on top of the desk. I struggle to keep the desk neat enough to work!
And lastly, I'd like to point out one final feature of the craft room and that is Eric's corner. Eric is almost 17 so he spends some of his free time playing video games. He has a separate T.V. for this and his corner is right next to my craft spot. I like it because we are often both down there together. It's not quality time, but I like it better than being alone.
