My Crafty Space

Hello! Happy Monday! Today over at BBTB2 we are having a different type of a challenge - but it's not really a challenge at all - we want to see where your creativity happens!  We all have some sort of crafty space and we would love to see yours! We, the DT, have all posted pics of our spaces so make sure you check out all of our blogs - some of them are AMAZING!!! 

So without further ado, I will walk you through my crafty space...

This is Command Central! 
I LOVE having pretty much everything at my fingertips!
We just converted a regular corner computer desk into my craft desk.

This is where I keep/organize my cardstock and mats.

 My cartridges, cutters, stamps, and finished cards are on this side of the desk.
Oh, and I rarely am in my craft room without a Diet Coke (today it was featured in my NFL tumbler). 
The best time I find to craft is when my baby is down for a nap (notice the baby monitor on the shelf).

All of my embellishments, i.e. buttons, brads, flowers, and bling, as well, as my adhesives, ink pads, and smaller stamps are kept in the AWESOME white plastic trays I get at Wal-Mart for .50 cents a piece! 
The cubby shelves are the perfect size for these trays.

The desk drawer is perfect for my tool kit, scissors, blades, and punches.

 Next to the desk is where I keep my ribbons, twine, tulle, and jute - it's a mess :)
My husband is still figuring out the best way to go about making me a ribbon holder, but this one works for the time being.

 The other half of the ribbon table is my where I do my embossing, binding, and laminating. 
My embossing folders and Spellbinders are kept in the wicker basket. 

Then there is the Changing Table turned Crafting Shelves.
All my pattern paper and packs are kept here.  
My acrylic paints, stickers, vinyl and various other crafting materials are here as well.

 Close up of the paper -
 and I don't have near enough of it :)

So that's pretty much it! It's not much, it tends to be a mess, but it's my space and I LOVE it!

Hopefully, you will join us in this week and share your space with us!

  11. I love your space Emily!!! I've always wondered what your desk looked like from seeing your videos. I think using a corner computer desk is a fabulous idea!!! Love all of your containers, too. :)

  12. Genius makeover of the changing table! Love "Command Central"-looks so organized and ready for crafty action! (By the way, Orlando was WARM and fabulous ;), especially the warm part was extremely nice after all the cold and snow)!

  13. Emily, you are an efficient girl after my own heart! I'm impressed by how organized you have everything in your little corner of the world! And I see open wall space above your desk for shelves or maybe a rod for ribbon spools ... and the best thing of all was how you changed that changing table (hahaha, I just realized what a pun that is!) into a crafting paper station! Well done!!

    And thank you for coming by to visit me and leaving some love. I appreciate it and I'm happy to meet you! Hugs, Darnell
