My Craft Room!

As most of you know that I just moved in with my mother in law and we live in the basement.  I know what you are thinking, a dark, dingy, basement.  That is not that case at all.  It is a great space.  Most of all, a closet, because the closet space is lacking.  Well we don't need alot of closet space so my wonderful hubbie has given me the ok to finally have a craft area.  Hurray!

I will have somewhere to have my Cricut, sewing machine and scrapbooking stuff where I can actually use it. I know I am jumping for joy.  Now this is the last place that I have unpacked because I knew once that was done I would not do anything else.  So I have made myself do that first and now that it is so close to being done I can start to think about how I want to organize and decorate it.  I am so excited!

I went and visited good old Martha's website and this is what I found:

I like the clip boards, but I don't know if this is really what I want.  I think it is kinda modern.

I love this idea!  But I actually have a room, so no go.  But if you have a small space, why a great idea.  Or if you work at home and have toddlers, great option!
I LOVE these shelves.  I think that I will be able to use these somehow.  I am not sure where, but I will find a why.  I think that my colors will be a little brighter.  

This is another thing that I LOVE! I want to do these for my craft room and also my kitchen.  I don't have one right now.  But when I get a kitchen I will have these! I have one already that I use for my scrap ribbon.  
 
I will have these.  I was at the Di a while back and they had all of  their large frames on sale for half off.  I found one without glass, which is what I wanted.  I am going to get a piece of scarp metal and put a fabric over top of it and then I want to get these containers and use them for buttons and metal embellishments for scrapbooking.  I am so excited!   Do any of you have any idea where I can buy them that I would have to sell my child to buy more the one?

I can't wait to show you my before and after.  I hope to start working on this next week!  Thanks for stopping by!

How fun! I love the clipboard idea to clip up inspiration or fabric swatches or ribbon pieces.

oh, i love your ideas! you could use little "stage 1" glass baby food jars and hot glue some heavy duty magnets to either the metal lids or the glass bottoms and make something cute on your magnetic board that way!

Do you have IKEA over there? They stock those round metal clear-lidded tins in sets of three. They have a magnet on the back.
I use them for my scrapbooking stuff too :-)
