|View when you first walk in my craft room|
Craftin' Desert Divas challenge is "Show me your craft room". Admittedly, only 3 or 4 people have ever seen my space in five years. I always keep the door shut and I give excuses why people cannot go in! I love my little room but I do not want people to think I am disorganized or that I have too much stuff or some other silly reason. So, this was actually a tough challenge for me: do I finally show people the room or continue to have the room hidden? Well, you all know what I decided.
First of all, the room is actually a baby's room. (It is small and in the corners of the room on the hardwood floor are painted stencils of rocking horses.) Since December my husband and I have been doing small improvements to better utilize the space. The view above is the view of the room when you first walk in.
The desk is quite thin and I have had it since college. A nice memory/working piece for me! To the left of the desk is a paper sorter unit I picked up for $20. Super sweet. It holds all my letter size card stock and is sorted by color. To the right of my desk is the bottom half of a china cabinet I bought at an auction for $30! The top half is used as storage in our basement. Well spent $30! On the wall is a peg board my hubby installed in January. My friend gave me the peg board (score!).

Near the china cabinet base is this little area. Above the iris boxes is a wall unit that displays my Peanuts stamps! What a happy couple of shelves. :) To the left of the unit is an almost bare wall area. My husband is going to install another peg board in that area for me. Yay! On top of the iris boxes you can also see my two white boxes of scrap paper...boy, I need to find more uses for that paper!

The photo below shows the wall to the left of my desk. This is my Cuttlebug machine working area. More stamps and goodies on the wall.
Facing back to the door is the special storage area many of you may have seen already. A great use of space and so easy to find ribbon or stamps.

So, that is my craft room. It is small with a lot of stuff...and I love it! I try to keep it tidy and when I finish a card I clean up so that I start with a clean slate...well...sometimes that does not happen but I try to do it! When the peg board and other improvements are completed, my room will be much more organized and cleanup will be even quicker.
What do you all think?
Looking forward to seeing every else's room/area! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
