My Craft Room

I thought I would share my craft room with everyone.  Greg made this room for me in 2001 long before I became a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  Everyone that comes over loves my room so I thought I would share it with everyone else who can’t come by to see it in person.  I have a few pictures – but I’ll add more when I get them.

craft-room-class-setup My room is up stairs in the bonus room over the garage.  Greg built a big table for me and it has two large shelves underneath for storage and has electricity wired in through two of the legs.  Along the back wall are shelves – three and I have the clear shoe boxes on some of them.  Books and magazines on some, stamps and other supplies on others.  Just recently I cleared one section off to be my Big Shot shelf.  There is enough room for 6 stools – 2 on each side and 1 on each end.

craft-room-stools I just bought four new stools for the craft room – they are from IKEA – and have backs and a foot rest.  I decided to add a Decor Elements flower to the back of each stool.   Back in the corner of the picture is my card stock.  I have a file cabinet on the bottom which has all my 8-1/2 x 11 card stock.  I have a folder for each color.  On top is a 12×12 organizer and I have those seperated by color families.  On top of that is my ink organizer.  Greg bought it for me one year for Christmas (on the advice of my sister-in-law).  The link for where he got it from is in my sidebar.  It holds the ink pad, the refill bottle and the marker.  I have one color family on each side and then there are 3 more spots on each side that are filled with the current In-Colors and Neutrals.  On the top I have my Stampin’ Around cartridges and some misc. stuff.  There are also pegs for wheels so most of my standard wheels are on there too.  It is on a turntable so I just turn it to what I need.

I have tons of punches and have two different storage areas for those.  I don’t have a picture of both.  But here is the latest – the bars from Ikea – I have two on this wall and two more on another wall and also some hanging storage that I found atpunch-storage Tuesday Morning one day.  I’ll add a picture later.

The little shelves in this picture I found at Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago.  There are actually three of them.  And each one has a drawer.  The small embossing powder containers, stampin’ spots and my extra markers all fit in the drawers.  My background stamps sit nicely on two of the shelves and I have a set of jars that are filled with ribbon scraps.  The elephant stamp on the shelf is my first stamp and I hand carved it in school on year.  Who knew that all these years later I would be stamping?  The picture is my mom in the 1960s.   I’m planning to put that one on a scrapbook page but I think I want to get a larger copy made.

That is what I have to show so far.  I’ll add more later.

Happy Stamping!

  1. Monica,
    Could you tell me where you found the test tubes and do you mind if I use this for my open house. It is so cute, and way easier than measuring.
    Thanks,
    Donna

  2. What a wonderful and inviting craft room. No wonder everyone wants to come to your house.

    It’s nice you have your first stamp. Mine was carved out of a potato. We used tempera paint and stamped all over the paper. Then we stamped on each other. :) I don’t think the teacher ever did that again.

    Thanks for letting us visit your craft room.

  3. Looks like a wonderfully fun place to create. And being up from the ground I bet the birds peek in to see what “your” nest looks like.

    Hugs and blessings – Jean
