*~*My Crafty Space*~* Part 1

New house = New crafty space!!!!

And this space needs a name..... Jen's Studio?  Jen's Crafty Place?  Jen's Creative Space?  Jen's Getaway?  HELP!
(leave me a comment/suggestion!  If I end up using your suggestion I'll send ya a little somethin'!)

Anyways.... This room is about 10.5 x 14 with a nice large walk-in closet.  It's located at the end of our bedroom hall, facing the front of the house/street.  I can just see myself crafting away while the kids play outside (someday....).

Before moving in, the walls were blue with a sports border---- had to go!  My painters painted them white and I came in and painted the bottom half Hollyhock Pink (yes, I took Hollyhock cardstock to Home Depot and matched it).  Then I found these AWESOME black damask wall stickers on CLEARANCE at Kohl's a couple weeks ago and put them up as a border.

My first "arrangement" of my computer desk/ cubes / scrap table was not working for me at all, so I rearranged a couple weeks ago and its fabulous!

When I walk in the room and turn right, this is my wall of stuff!  My table sits in front of it, so I turn around to get my supplies :)  My computer desk is on the left, right in front of the window. 

Left side:  I found those magnetic boards at Home Goods, they hold ideas I've printed out, a sketch/photo that I will work on next.  See my cool border?
On the far left are my "least used supplies", then my cricut stuff, then some flowers and other things. 

Starting with the 1st stack of 3 cubes is my stickles, bling, finished layouts (in a drawer), adhesives, punches and paper packs I'm working with.  Then next stack is all CTMH stuff.  The next stack is all paper:  misc. companies then cardstocks, then stacks from other co.  Next to that is some plastic drawer things- those have my scraps, embossing stuff and some other random things that I have yet to organize.

I just love that little display thing that I found at Hobby Lobby.  I have some of my more recent *loved* projects on it!  My ink tower sits next to it!

The wall to the right, which sits right next to my chair has 2 tall plastic storage things.  One holds all my alpha stickers/ Thickers and some misc stuff.  The other is FULLLLLLLLLL of CTMH stamps!  5 drawers with up to 35 stamp sets in each, plus a full box on top!  YIKES!

Right now I'm using a 4' table from costco to scrap on, BUUUUTTTTT, this baby from IKEA is on its way!  My mom picked it up for me and is bringing it up to me this weekend :)

Oh, and here's a glimpse of the amazing walk-in closet that I was blessed with!  It is in no-way-shape-or-form organized, but it sure does hold a TON of crap!!!!

When we were deciding who got which bedroom, my husband said "this room already has a sports border, so this will be Tyler's room right?"  Hahahahaha, silly man!  I said "no!  It will be my office.... There's no way I'm giving up this closet to a BOY!"  Plus, I didn't want my kids to have rooms facing the front of the house.  Poor child has the smallest room.... but mama's happy ;)

Stay tuned for more (as it gets organized!)
