My FINISHED Craft Room :0)

I am so excited! I showed a few photos a week or so ago.. but now I can show off the FINISHED Craft Room!  I love it! It is off of my bedroom - we use to have four windows on one side of our bedroom - we took them out  - three became openings into the room and one became a doorway that you step down into my room.

This is the view coming into the room -

While looking to the left - you see one of my favorite pieces - Hubby painted this cabinet a few years back as a anniversary gift. It use to be our computer cabinet. Now it is storage and a place for Hubby to work on his fly tying. I love it and how well it went into the room. You also see the "pet" corner... Gato the Cat's Window bed... cat scratcher, and Libbie's bed :0) Everyone has a place in this craft room!

I wanted to point on one of my new things I just love!! I found these tiered baskets recently at an antique store. It is really an old one - has a few little issues.. but nothing I can't make work. It is now holds all... scratch that... some of my flowers - and best yet.. I only paid $10.00 for it! Love it!

If you turn to the left you see the stamp wall I showed last time... the new 6 drawer cabinet Hubby got me and you can better see my storage closet - much needed. On the door of the closet I have my some of my punches - this is a new system for me.. not sure if I am liking this or not but we will see - to the right of the door is the paper cabinet I showed last time.

And this is my desk!! I am so happy! This is a desk my father made years ago - he was a graphic designer, and he made this drafting table to work on and the small rolling cabinet next to it. He used it forever - Funny thing is that as a kid I remember this desk being HUGE.. and now it just doesn't seem that big.. LOL But Hubby has cleaned up for me, and added a glass top to it, and it is perfect and makes me really happy to be using it! I just wish my Dad knew how much I loved it and that I am using it...

the top of my desk is full... :0)   I like to have my most used items close! Sewing machine, Copics, punches, the list goes on and on... But I still have lots of creative space - this is something I have never had before - my little desk before was not very big and I had a lot on it - so I had a 8 x 8 working space... good things my cards usually are 6x6...LOL  Now I can work on anything!

Above my desk is shelves Hubby put up for me.. one for some of my 3-d projects I have made recently - and the top one one of my favorite shorebirds his father carved. (Hubby and his Dad were both bird carvers for years.. their stuff really is amazing.  If only Hubby didn't have so many house - barn - fence - donkey - goat - dog projects he might do more of it! LOL)

I forgot to take a photo of our computer desk.. it sits just to the right of my craft desk on the other side of the doorway. Not missing to much, it is just a desk with a computer on it -

I found it not easy to photo the room... I may try and do some better ones as I get things more organized on the shelves and such, but at least now you can see how wonderful it turned out. I am so proud of it and really hate to mess it up... I use to never clean up after myself well.. now as soon as I use something it goes right back into place - hope I keep that up! Thanks for all the patience and waiting for me to get my act together while finishing it -

Have a wonderful Sunday... me I am in my craft room :0)
HUGS and-
