My Crafty Room!

Have I ever showed you my craft space? No? Then, good, because it has moved three times in the last year! I used to have one of the large bedrooms upstairs, but then my son moved home from college and took over, so I moved into a smaller bedroom. Now we are getting a renter (one of my son's friends) while he is going to the U of G so he is taking over the basement. Thus, my middle son had to move back upstairs to the smaller bedroom. I have now moved most of my stuff to the main floor front room. That is where I hold my classes anyway, but now all my treasures are there with us, making for a cramped space if more than 8 people come to stamp!

Here are pictures of my space:

 This is an overall picture. A shelf that holds a bit of everything, a table, drawers, etc
 These white drawers hold my scrap pieces of cardstock and designer papers. It also holds chipboard, rub ons and retired cardstock and retired designer paper. The black drawers hold my adhesive, tools such as scrubs, stampin mist, cutters, paper piercer and doo dads that need a home. My paper cutter is to the left of the white drawers. It just sits there until I need it, then I pull it off that table and put it on a bigger table.
 This is my stamp pad holder and 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock holder that my father-in-law made for me one year. On top I have two ribbon holders and my ladybug boots! lol
 This is my 12x12 designer paper holder. I used to have a smaller one (thanks Priscilla) but it was too small. So my daughter is using that one and I bought this one from a friend who had a scrapping retreat place but was downsizing. I scored a good deal...thanks Claudia!
 This is my desk. I decided to make one rather than try to fit another piece of furniture in here. I bought the piece of wood from a big box store and set it on top of two drawer cabinets that were the same height. The drawers on the left hold my big shot stuff, bags, miscellaneous stamps, fabric and other contraband stuff. The drawers on the right hold my order forms, labels, receipts, table cloths, etc. The spaceship looking thing is my garbage can!
This shelf holds a bit of everything. The top shelf and the third one down holds my stamp sets. Yes, that is all I have...that are current anyway! The second shelf holds my retired keeper sets, embellishments and embossing powder. In the white drawer thingy are my punches. I had them on the towel racks in the BIG bedroom, but now they are confined to a small little drawer. It's full so I will need another one...or a bigger drawer thing! You can see my reinkers to the left of the punches and my envelopes are in the box below that. On the bottom shelf is my paper recycle box. And beside the shelf is another shelf patiently waiting to be cut and put up for use.
 This is my chair. I put it together myself! It is a bit high for the table but that is ok. My Stampin Up apron (that I earned for free) is on the back of it.
This is my whiteboard that displays what classes I have. As you can see, Tuesdays are class night here in my pad. It's a day that works best for almost everyone. I also have samples of the different colours we offer. I just need to add the in colours.
And then the tables where the creating stampers sit! This was a picture from when I had my new catty party. There is a mini fridge in the back right corner but it is no longer there. It will be going in the basement for the renter.

So that is my space. Cramped yet full of love and fun! Join me some time, won't you?

Until next time, happy stamping!
