My new Craft Area
















OK, so I know it is small but that is alright....I am so excited to share pictures with all of you, my friends. I love my new craft "studio". It has everything right where I want it. I just don't know why I didn't think to do this sooner. I work for a company that manufactures slatwall. I got two pieces and some shelves from work and came home and went to work. I was so excited with how it started to come together. It is funny....I have joked and joked for months now that I have more paper than Michaels. After sorting through all my paper I realized that I truly do have more paper than Michaels. I have realized that I have a huge paper addiction. "hello, my name is Vicki and I am addicted to paper". The plastic containers underneath my tables, wow, what a bargin they were. I was in Wal-mart and went down their clearance isle and found these on clearance for $7. I got both of them, too bad they didn't have more. I guess they were on clearance because they were green. The black cabinets that you see that I have all my brads and buttons and other embellishments, these are in the hardware dept at Wal-mart. They are supposed to be used for screws and bolts and things but they work perfect for your embellishments. The one thing I will have to do tomorrow at work is see if I can get another piece of MDF board to put over top of my little table. This was a steal that I found at CVS, the table top is a little thin and I guess during moving everything around I put too much weight on it because it is now warped, so I am going to get a piece of MDF board tomorrow and put on top of the table. I am actually going to get a piece that is a little bigger than the table is so I can have more room....There is still so much more that I want to do. I have two more walls in my little room and I can see shelves going up on them already. Anyway, thanks for taking a peak at my little room away from everything. Please let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions please let me know. Thank you all!

  5. Vicki, this sweet craft space you have now is just awesome. It has everything you need right where you can see it. That makes creating so much easier when you don't have to dig through several spots to find just what you need. I have an entire room and it is full, jammed to the hilt with 3 Cricuts, tools, papers in 10 different tubs and shelves, drawers of embellishments, shelves of rubber stamps and beads... It appears to be a big mess but can you believe I know where everything is. Amazing. Love your space, girl... some really wonderful creations are going to come out of there.
    Hugs
