I still have more to 'organize' but for now, I wanted to share pics of my "Craft Area" in our basement and see if anyone had tips or idea's for me.

This is an overall view of my table space...pardon the full garbage under the table and my bags, etc under there as well!




I still have to go through the drawers in the green unit. I have sooo much junk! I'd love to get another of the white unit ($29 at Target) which has the cases for drawers....but I'd rather spend the $30 on a Cricut Cartridge right now! OH! THe red lid container that's on top of the white unit I found at Target this weekend for just $1.99!!!! It's a leftover from Christmas but it's made to store ribbon! WhooHoo! The little green table is Kaylee's area...although I tend to pile my stuff over on it! Shhh! Don't tell her!





And then this was a mini album I made for my DH's Nana. She was 85 a few weeks ago. I got the album at ACMoore for $1.99! I actually picked up a few and plan on making them for the grandparents for Valentine's Day. Gotta get going on that one!

Anyhow...here are the pages that were in it. I snapped them before leaving my IL's that day! Don't ya just love my MIL's slipcover on her sofa!?! (The flash killed the one of the poem that was inside the cover...I found it on the net...it's not an original :blush) Also...I though it was cute to add in pics the kids had drawn. Kaylee's 'cake' was made into a sticker...she's loving that machine as much as I am!








Thanks for looking!

Oh I envy you ladies so much that can have your own space

Great job with your scrapping area!!! I really need to reorganize my area - it's a mess and I haven't touched it in weeks. It's so sweet that Kaylee has her own space to.

And I love the mini album. I also picked up a couple of those albums when I was at AC Moore a few months ago, but haven't done anything with them yet.

Your space looks awesome! So organized. No suggestions here except go out and buy that cartridge...you deserve it!

That album is so cute. Great job!

Thanks girls!

I bought simple little hooks from target that I was thinking of putting on the wall in front of my tabel to hang scissors and such on bunt...since I don't use my fancy/shape scissors all that often...I'm holding off on doing it.

I did start the V-Day albums this mrongin after I posted this though. I'm on a roll but forced myself ot take a break for lunch and to sit and watch a show with Vanessa. (and this is how I watch Nick Jr. with her! )

You did a great job with your space! I'm jealous, it's bigger than mine! I work at a little round table in our bedroom! I shouldn't complain though, it's still better than the kitchen table!

Love the mini album, she will too!

Great space. If I keep up with this, I'll have to take over my own space too.

Love the mini album, great job!

The desk was given to me 6 years ago from my Aunt who got it in Target. It's a Crayola Brand desk, not sure if they sell it anymore.

But...that being said...I did see drawers that are colored like the desk is and I'm actually toying with buying 2 drawer sets and then attaching a shelving board across the top to make another area for my other daughter!


Thanks for all the nice comments about my space. I was just emailing a friend and said how it feels so good to have my own little space in my house. It serioulsy is little... but it makes me feel relaxed when I sit there and scrap, knowing it's my space. As a SAHM, you tend to get lost in your kids lives...now I have a space when I make time for me.

Oh geez! I'm not even close to being as organized as I'd like to be!

But my budget holds me back. I want at least 2 more of those white organizer drawers...plus some sort of 'track' that I can clip pics up on without needing tacks, just clips...kind of like clothesline style...but a track? Not sure if they even make that?

Actually, I think I just gave myself an idea!
