Craft Room Reveal Day!

Morning friends! Well, today is the day! I have some photos of my crafting room! Woohoo! I have a couple of finishing things to do (I'm going to either make or have someone make for me curtains to cover from the bottom of the counter area to the floor to cover my little storage area). That and I have a couple of more decor elements and the magnetic whiteboard to put up. Overall...I'm finished! This room is exactly what I was hoping it would be and just such a wonderful place to be in that I don't like to leave. Thank you so much Todd for making my dream room come true!
Okay, above is what you'll see coming down the hall to the room. I'm calling it my cutting center and there is a better picture below.Above is what I call my ribbon wall and is the wall on the right hand side as you come in the room. The ribbon holders are from Clip it Up (but I paid much less than retail price for them) and my Nesties hang below the bottom holder. I won a wonderful piece of vinyl art from EAD Designs that says "create" and it will center over the top of the ribbon holders and punch rail on that wall. So excited to get it!
Again, above is the window area of my room. Yep, that is my new window covering, a top down, bottom up double cell blind and it is gorgeous! We got one for the living room too! I use the counter area under the window to place my Fiskars Cutter and Scoring board when I use it. Right now the swaps for stamp club are laid out so I can distribute them when the orders come in. Oh, see...the bouquet of flowers in the vase on the window sill? Well, that is the bouquet of flowers Todd had for me when we he proposed to me. Lily of the Valley are my absolutely most favorite flowers and we don't have them around here so he had a bouquet of silk LOTV along with lilacs made for me!Above is my main crafting area. You can see my computer with printer underneath the table...love that! What I didn't get in the picture, darn it, is my Mother's Day present. I'll have to take a photo of that later and show you! Underneath the table and to the left of the printer you'll see a tote with stuff on top. The tote has stamp sets in it and on top I keep my cutter, scor-pal, and a smaller tote with stuff that I use often when I craft..adhesive, stamp cleaner, glue dots, sponges...you get the idea. I like this because it is all together yet put away when I'm not using it.
Yep, that is my cutting center. You can see my punches, Nesties, Big Shot, and the supplies for the Big Shot are in the container on the storage unit...the plates are in the top drawer of the unit.
Something I'm excited about is my paper center. I have SU!, Gina K, and PaperTrey Ink paper within the magazine holders, about 4-5 different colors per magazine holder. I'm going to get some 8 1/2 x 11 cello bags to put my scraps eventually...when I can find them.
And finally...my other storage. The white paper holders are big enough for my 12x12 papers and they are organized by bright, light, earth, winter/Christmas, baby/misc. holiday, Valentine's/love, and I have a chipboard box as well. There are stamp sets on the top shelf, stamps, paper, re-inkers on the 2nd shelf, paper on the 3rd shelf, the 4th shelf is embellishments, and the bottom shelf is Dove Chocolate Discoveries stuff and that is also what is in the corner.

Well, I think that is it? Was it worth the wait? It was for me for sure! Please...give me your feedback, let me know what you think. Do you have anymore ideas for me? I'd love to hear them!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend everyone! "See" ya all soon!

What a great room! I love the color and your window! I love your corner table. Like how you hung your nesties. I thought I'd see a whole wall of SU stamps and more ribbon though. Great organization and a great space will make you create with relaxation. Thanks for sharing...If you up for another challenge, I'd pay for air fare! *wink*
