My Craft Room Photos! Scoll to bottom of post to view VIDEO!

Here is my Revised, revised, revised, revised Craftroom. I have to admit my slide show on the right is much neater version, but that was when I had less stuff!
We closed off our living and dining room with French Glass doors and separated the two rooms, four years ago.  This was the kid's craft room/playroom before I took over two years ago. After buying all of my "Bugs", I kind of took over the room,  but they have access to all my craft things.

Photos start and go around in a circle. It was buying the rods to store my Stampin' Up punches that got me to redo a few things! Enjoy!

You are now entering my Craftroom from the Kitchen. This is my "pull out area" I had the file cabinet for about 25 years and added the  narrow "desktop" so I could use this for a cutting area. I also threw in another set of plastic drawers and keep my stamp sets in there too. Stamps everywhere!

My main work desk.  This is my stamping desk where I make my Stampin' Up Cards.
I got this desk about 25 years ago. Underneath, I have red and navy bins on wheels with chalkboards on the front. I store more paper and cardstock in the bins in files. I like to be organized!  I keep my Stampin' Up Inkspots, Crayons, Pencils, Adhesives in the set of black plastic drawers. I keep stamp sets and ribbon packages in the Jetmax cubes to the right.

My Ink Center. My little girl decorated this and the Embellishment Center.

Embellishment Center, ribbon, buttons, bows!

Close up of Desktop

Punch Storage on Bygel Rods. I am so happy with these!! This is what got me in the mood to change things around!

Back of room, looks into Living room.  Stampin' Up Cardstock Storage

Left Shelves

This was the kid's Art Table,  that my hubby built for them, but I took it over for my "bugs".
I stand when I use the machines. It is a really deep space.
I moved their art work to this side because the wall was soooo busy with the Embellishment Center here. It drives me crazy with how busy this wall was and still is!

 I just found these little white CD cases and put them in the openings of the Jetmax Cubes. I used to have little ladybug boxes there and kept my overlays and and booklets filed in them. Now I put those back in their boxes and use these new CD cases to store my new plastic cases from SU. I redid a bunch of my stamps and store them in there now. The drawers also house stamps.
The little plastic bins in the middle store more cardstock and envelopes.

 Right Shelf space

Right Shelf space. More Artwork from Preschool

This is where I live- at my Computer and work my business! I love this Tressle Desk. I love being able to look out my backyard through the bay window. The kitchen is to my right.

Ok, we made a full circle now of my little dining room, turned playroom, turned Craftroom/Office! This is another entry into the room and to the right of my desk and the bay windows.  These  cubes  house embellishments and books.

I hope you enjoyed my tour. Would love to hear your comments!
