Houston we have a craft room

So here is the craft room! I am so happy to have it all done and everything unpacked. Now I just need to find some time to create in it. The cubes are great way to display some of my favorite yarn. The bookshelf holds all my craft books and scrapbook albums. And boy do I have a lot of paper. I really need to do some scrapbooking and use some of it. Here is my work area. Thank you so much to my BIL Ron for coming over last Fri to put my shelves up for me. I hope the lasagna payment was sufficient, although I benefited from that too. Well my ass may disagree. I fell in love with the red chair the moment I saw it and knew I had to have it to match the red decor. It is comfy as well.
This dresser holds a mish mash of things: fabric, paints, art supplies. Hanging from the shelf is some of my handspun yarn, such a great way to display it. The Ragedy Ann doll (made for me by a dear friend when I was a child) sits upon my basket of sock yarn.
This is inside the cabinet doors. The lower shelves are mostly the beads I use for making stitch markers and some for jewelry.
This is the closet, where the rest of my yarn can be found, along with everything else that didn't look pretty when in view. And of course Nietzche. The cats always find a way of getting in a shot or two.
The top shelves in the closet hold my fiber for spinning, knitting bags and stamping supplies.
Some up close shots of my favorite elements. That cute little sheep was found at Bath and Body works. He is very soft and smells delightful.
I had some messy fun decoupaging these letters. I think it took me a good 15 min. to get all the glue off my fingers.
This is the awesome desk calender dh bought me as one of my anniversary presents. Everyday is a picture of a different purse. (Yep, I have a thing for purses too).

Mmm. look at the pretty Touch Me Due on the bottom basket. I am a perv and fondle it often.
An altered canvas homage to my bff. I made her a matching one. Look I had blond hair!
Shelton the sheep, who I adopted at Serendipity in Buena Vista, sits a top my little cubbies that hold all sorts of crafty bits.

So there it is. My new dream space. I am so thrilled to have such a wonderful area to create in. I can't wait to get started.

You are one lucky girl! An entire room for you and your creativity. Hope to see it in person sometime in 2008. Just opened your lovely box, and will take pics of Charlie in his supercool sweater. Thank you so much, what a special present. Suzanne

What a fabulous room. I love the red decor, especially the checkerboard cubes. Wow. It should be very inspiring to hang out there.
