Finally Finished.....

Hey there everyone! Just popping in today to show you my progress on my crafting room. I am finally finished rearranging and decluttering. It feels soooo good. I sorted through years of stash and am getting ready for a garage sale in August. I am also donating some of my gently used items to our cancer center for their patients to stamp and scrap with. I thought I would share a few pictures of my finished space.


This is what you see first when you enter my room. It looks like there is a long white mark on my floor but I think it is just a reflection from the window. I ended up just putting cubes together that I purchased at Michaels to make my desk. There is a ton of storage! Just about everything I need is at an arms length. Love that. :)

The shelf that my husband Tom made is where I have all of my wood mounted stamps. All of my clear mounted stamps are in the white cube underneath the little red lamp thats shade is crooked. Oops! I used more cubes to house all of my paper. I really like storing my paper vertically. The clipboard to the left of the shelf is where I keep track of design deadlines. Its my daily reminder since I have been having quite a few senior moments lately. :)

This is storage area is behind my desk for easy access to my ink pads, Copics and other embellishments. Oh.... and Tootsie Pops! Can't have a craft room without a little sugar, thats what makes it sweeeeet! I also keep all of my photos that are waiting to be scrapped in 3-up photo albums.

The embellishment station from Making Memories is where I keep my buttons, paint, ribbon. I also store lots of little embellies in Tilt Bins, they work great for small things. Underneath the desktop is where all of the rest of my photos and slides are housed. I love having everything all in one spot.

And last but not least, is my closet. I bought the organizer with the colored bins at Target. I store all of my additional project supplies in them. The white rectangular boxes I use for memorabilia for my whole family. All of my scrapbooks fit nicely on the shelf above.

If you are working on creating a craft space of your own I would love to see and hear your ideas. Well thats about it. I am so relieved to have this project completed.  Hope you are all having a great weekend.

Blessings to you,

Laurie :)


  1. I LOVE IT!!! Wonderful job!! Can you come to my house and help me work on my room...LOL! I bet it feels good to have that done =) You even have OCD like I do....the lamp shade is are so cute. Tell your hubby I love the shelf he made for you wood stamps!

  2. Laurie~~Your room is awesome--just like your cards. I especially like your use of the M's cubes for a majority of your storage. These photos of your space would be a good advertisement for the cube manufacturer and Michael's! Makes me think I should go down and clean up my space.

  3. Wow Laurie! This looks awesome!
    I'm so jealous! I've been thinking of posting some pics of my craft area, but unfortunately I don't have my own room dedicated to crafts.

  5. Laurie...this room is made for creating! It's just simply beautiful! Love all the storage and the bright clean feel to the room. I finally got a craft room last year but it's still not exactly the way I want it. Maybe your completed space will give me a push to finish it.
