Crafting Spaces in 2013

Tara over at the Craftin Desert Diva's is having a craft it up and link it up party where those who wish to are sharing their craft rooms.  I initially shared mine last year, but now a lot has changed.  One of my children moved home for a bit and so I have moved in to a smaller room for the time being.  And it's a room that we had added on to the house but had not yet quite finished with all the needed trim and other finishes.  You know what they say......never live where you remodel because it will never be done......well that's my situation here primarily because we are doing all of the work ourselves.  Enough of that though, let's get on to my new space.
 
First we'll start with the sewing cabinet that I love and can't wait to be able to use to it's full potential again.  Right now it butts up to my table and does not allow the door to fully open for use so I have to drag my machines to the dining room table when I want to sew.
 
On the bottom of this cabinet is a great space with a shelf for stashing my fabric.  Thank goodness I don't sew any more than I do because as you can tell I'm full up on top and bottom.  Oh, and the bottom is stacked two rows deep.
 
 
Like I had mentioned, my table where I do all my papercrafting is next to the sewing cabinet.  Pretty simple spot right here.  And those funny looking things hanging on the side of my sewing cabinet - those are my knitting looms.  I can't needle knit to save my life but I can make a mean scarf on those looms.  LOL
 
 
Over in the corner is where I store my cartridges.  I haven't bought any in a while but that's okay because I've got plenty sitting here to keep me busy. 
 
 
Here you see my older machine and printer along with a toilet tissue cover I recently finished on one of my knitting looms.  The containers under my table are just a few of those I have floating around that store my wares in as I wait for upcoming craft shows.
 
 
And now you can see where I store my papers, yarns and other wares.  I love these cubicles and while they can be pricey I have yet to buy one at "full" price.  I always do the 40 or 50 percent off thing.
 
 
These are my serger and embroidery machines.  I got in to making upcycled scarves last year so for my birthday and Christmas these were gifts that my wonderful husband purchased for me.  I've had a lot of fun cutting up sweaters and patching them in to scarves.
 
 
And this is my prize.  My youngest son painted this chair for me as  an art project for school.  Isn't it awesome?
 
 
Finally, my bookshelf where I store even more of my "junk" as I call it.  And there you have a walk though my recently condensed crafting space.  If you'd like to see what my old one was like you can view it here.
