Ta Daaaaa!

I'm finally sharing pictures of my new craft space/studio, or better known in my family as the MOM CAVE! I've been in my new space for about a month now, but I've been waiting on posting pictures so that my brother Jeff could finish a few more things that needed to be done, so it would look all nice and pretty. The picture up top is my favorite part of the room and the first thing you see when you walk in, I love all of the open shelves and how everything is right at my fingertips. The room is painted a soft color yellow, I wanted a warm color because I'm in the basement, the cabinets are white (I'm still waiting on the toe kick) and offer lots of storage for all of my stuff. The carpet is a warm cocoa color with a pin dot pattern and makes the room feel very cozy.

Its great to have a long counter top to be able to have room to spread out when I'm working. When I am working on something this room looks like a tornado hit.





To the left are shots of a couple of my drawers.....I don't just show my drawers to just anyone ya
know so consider yourself lucky, LOL.











Below is a picture of the opposite side of the room, you would see this if you walked into the room and looked to your right. I only have one chair because the room is pretty small and all I have to do is wheel from one side or the other.


The picture on the right is of my closet, were I store all of my stamps (other than my background stamps which are stored on the shelves above my counter) and any other stuff I don't know what to do with. I need to organize the bottom half of the closet (to make room for more stamps right?).






I just love my new space, its a dream come true and its all thanks to my sweet husband and my brothers for all of their hard work!

I love seeing other gals craft spaces! I currently "share" my space with my husband, so it isn't as girly as I would like it to be. When our girls were little and space and time were very limited, my sweet husband set up a table in the corner of our bedroom so I could stamp and scrap in peace- I lived for nap time! He says it was the best thing he ever did for our marriage! :)
