Craftroom

Carri over at
is having a
show us your craftroom challenge
she is so very talented and if you don't have any
of her skittles boy are you missing out on the
most fabulous colors always the perfect
finishing touch to any card, scrapbook page
or crafting project....
I will apologize here for the length of this post
but I wanted to share pictures of my craftroom
for a long time and luckily I had just cleaned it so
perfect time to take photos
this room was one of my daughter bed rooms she
had painted the squares to match a quilt my mom
had made her I love the colors so I left them
on one wall
and the fabulous cranberry chair was my
other daughter college chair she left behind
to the left when you walk in my door a small dresser I got
at Walmart this was just going to be temporary but it really works
so until I find something I like better it will stay
both my cutting machines fit perfectly on it
was so happy to find the plastic three drawer bins
at Target the fit perfectly between the shelf and the wall
boy do they hold and organize a ton of stuff
 

 
My Husband made the shelf over the window
the black fabric baskets hold cards, ribbon, tags and other materials
got these at Target I really like them

 
I have my sizzix Texture Boutique for embossing
and below on the self in one of the cubes I keep my
embossing folders got this fabric basket at Michaels
I the bin on the shelf  I keep small pieces of solid card stock
shorted in roy g biv order
this works great for when I need to die cut
don't have to rummage for paper or waste a full sheet
In the cubes on the right side of my desk on the top shelf  on the right
I store my twine in the bin on the left I keep my pearls, gems and sequins 
have my stamps in the other basket in Avery Elle Pockets
 


I keep the magnet platform on my bigkick
I find this to be big time saver
have my dies in a bin in cd holders and Avery Elle pockets
 
the rolling stand under my desk is one of the
first big purchase I made when I started
papercrafting was perfect before I had
 a room and so many supplies kept everything
on it could easily wheel in in and out of
a closet when I wanted to craft
 I  got it at scrapbook.com
I did check add don't thini it's available any longer
they do have the stackable trays 

they don't have the drawers any longer either
so wish I had gotten more of these they came
with dividers and so awesome for organizing



if you see anything and want to know more about it
just leave a comment and I will get back to you
 
Have a happy and safe 4th
