Welcome to the HIMCR Crafty Spaces Blog Hop! Did you have a fun time seeing Laurie's space? I know I did! Thanks for hopping along to my blog to see my craft room that I hide in. Well sometimes I get to hide, but not often as you will see in the pictures I took last night!
I recently moved my craft room to the basement. I am going to try holding my monthly crop in my basement and decided that it would be better to have EVERYTHING at my finger tips when I have that event than to have to carry it down from the attic bedroom.
Besides that...the attic bedroom is H-O-T in the summer months! So the basement is just the right temperature to craft the nights away!
SO...I don't have everything moved or organized yet. And I decided to show you all what my room really looks like, rather than clean it up...I'm being real here!
Here is my little craft corner. I have a 5ft. table for myself. Inks close by as well as a Diet Dr. Pepper! You will get to see all of the things behind my desk up close. So here we go!
In my new craft space, Brooke (my 4.5 year old daughter) can have her own space to create what she wants. And usually she holds on tight to my washi tape collection! I let her use it...when am I EVER going to use it ALL!
This group of shelves behind my chair is home to some embellishments, some cardstock, some designer papers, adhesives and some tools...basically things I use often but don't want to have them cluttering my desk!
Here is a close up of my messy table! You know it's a good craft session when you have a little mess to share with the world!
Next you get to peek inside that cabinet that is behind me. This is where all of my stamps are kept! You will also see my tote that I use for all of my tools at crops and Stampin' Up! events. On the middle shelf you will find my retired stamp sets that I just can't part with!
And the top shelf is all of the current Stampin' Up! stamp sets! Can you believe I have so many...YIKES!!! But I do earn a lot of them for free, being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!
Over to my left you will find my scrap drawers. I really try to use them up! AND you will see my NEW envelope punch board on that shelf underneath my scraps! I love that thing!
If you were to sit in my chair, this is what you would see. It's not a pretty space...it's an un-finished basement that is also a storage facility, laundry room, gym and playroom! But it works for me!
One of the best things about my new set up is that I can craft while my two year old plays just a few feet away! I LOVE IT!
I hope that you will continue on our hop and click here to see Jennie's Crafty Space! So glad that you all stopped by! Come back Saturday to see more HIMCR goodness!
