FINALLY Finished! (almost)

We finally have some normalcy back in our lives. It's about time! I've managed to finish getting the last room together...my craft room. I do have a few walls I need to finish adding stuff to and I have a curio cabinet to complete yet in the dining area. I'm not overly thrilled with the prospect of unwrapping a ton snowbabies. My husband has been driving me crazy to get this done. It will happen...on my schedule not his.

I've set my tables up in a u-shape this time.

It goes from this table around to this table with my sewing machine, embellishments and paper crates.

I've also tried to keep "like" items together a little better. It will make it easier when I'm crafting. I have all my buttons within reach. I've decided I want to stain or paint my ribbon holder, so that's on my "to do" list.

I'm using a utility cart to hold my printer, all my clear stamps (wooden ones are tucked away in a cabinet), trimmers, crop-a-dile and other items.

I'm going to use this chest to hold supplies, once I've cleared out all the drawers. That's a project for another day! Once again I have my punches hanging on the door.

Extra ribbons hang on the door. I also have a nice cabinet for holding extra items. You can't see it very well, but it's on the right.

All my extra paper is stored in paper trays.

There was a great shelving area in the closet, so I'm using it to store my cookbook magazines, craft magazines, craft books and sizzix dies.

Now maybe I can get back to enjoying this hobby of mine!

Lookin' FANTASTIC. Way to go, what an accomplishment. I am in the middle of a art studio make-over. Hope to be finished soon. Love your blog side panels. Where did you get them? Thanks!

Hi, Patty! Congratulations on your new crafty room! Hope this means you can relax a bit and then get back to crafting! :-)

Thanks Anne! I'm definitely getting back in the swing of things! I'm working on a project I hope to blog about either later today or tomorrow. I'm hoping to participate in some challenges too. Can't wait to see what your September challenge is. Thanks for stopping by:)
