My New Craft Space! :)

Hello everone! Here's my new craft space. I found this computer armoire on craigslist for $70! Such a great deal! I watched for one for about a month now. I love how it closes up and you can hid your stuff, makes my bedroom look so much cleaner and less cluttered.

Here's some pictures before I put my stuff in it...



I just LOVE how it swings open so I have more work space!!!! I could live in here..


Here's it all filled up..




In the large wicker basket I have all my punches, in the smaller wicker basket I have all my ribbons, I need one of those ribbon purses.. Under the ribbon basket is my little container for brads and eyelets, charms ect. In the photo boxes there are my Wild Orchid Craft Flowers in 3 of the boxes 2 have cards, and one box is full of Magnolias! In the 3 drawer cube, first drawer is stamped images and rub ons and cut outs, second drawer is more ribbon.. on rolls, 3 drawer is all my other unmounted stamps. The little pull out shelf, where you'd put the keyboard has a basket of pens, aqua painters, and paper cutters ect. On the side of the 3 drawers I have my scraps and large pads of papers.


I love my light!


I am putting all my spellbiders and other thin dies in cd holders to place in the holder on the side, I put 6x6 pads on the other side, the peg board holds all my packaged goodies, I have my copic bucket, jars of buttons, and in the little black plastck drawers I have glitter and sparkly fluff, dew drops.. all small jar thingys. On the side of that I have templates, bow easy stamping blocks.


My neglected scrap books.. the basket has SU sets and some containers of flowers. On the second shelf I have ink pads, a smaller basket which holds bottled stuff, sprays, mists, re-inkers, glue ect.


Cardstock and below that is all my patterned 12x12 paper..


In the door that swings out I have more dies, my Magnolia Inks, Cricut stuff, scor-buddy, embossing tray,  Circle cutter, chipboard and envelopes.


I hope you enjoyed the tour of my space, and hopefully got some ideas from me!

Have a wonderful rest of the week see you Friday!

Just so you are aware I have updated my etsy store and if you buy a card from me you will get one free, buy 2 and get 2 free. The free ones are not posted in my shop.

What A Brilliant Buy, It is Gorgeous. I have a large TV Cabinet which I can shut mine away in and I know how useful it can prove.

Wow Mindy! What an amazing find. That is such a great way to have your space... I craft in my bedroom too and it would be great to have everything hidden away and then have that swing out workspace. Kudos to you for such a great purchase!

Tanya said...

Mindy what a beautiful card!! I love circus tilda and almost purchased her the other day. I still plan to. I just never figured out why she's 'circus' tilda!!! And that armoire is great! I bought that exact same one several (and I mean SEVERAL) years ago. When I moved to a smaller house, no room so gave it to my son. He loves it. I wish I had it back as I've moved again and now have room!! Oh well... I'll find something else! Thanks for your inspiration!

KER said...
