Blogging Friends Blog Hop- Carft Space Special!

 Welcome to the March 2016 edition of the Blogging Friends Blog Hop!  The theme foe this month is our craft space.  My studio, The Power House, is in my basement.  I recently added a powder room and had the room repainted so I have yet to hand pictures or decorations as I'm too chicken to take a hammer to my pristine walls.  Who knows maybe this weekend.   I live on the East Coast so basements are quite common for extending your living space.  The only drawback is no handicapped access so sometimes we have to have class upstairs.

This is my desk/classroom seating.  I can seat 8 here.

This area is storage and my e-cutters
Here is a sketch class ready to go.  each project in a bucket.

This side of the room is where my family hangs out and keeps me company while I do my thing.

This is where my 8 1/2 x 11 card stock lives and my books.  Below is pictures waiting to be scrapbooked and storage.

These bins store old style wood mount stamps and other supplies.

This is my Big Shot area.

Cutting and scoring happen here.

Above I store my current stamps, they are marked with the orange dots.

The magnetic strip allows me to secure dies that are in use and prevent loss. 

This is my light box for taking pictures.

I store my reinkers and such in these trays.

Washi Tape

Embossing powder and glitter

My creative space, cup warmer mandatory!

Storage for my 6 x6 paper packs.

I store my paper scraps by family here.

Ribbon is stored in the trays.

scrap cubby

The dogs ball and my card storage.

My sweet little powder room and my only natural light!

Great space -- so big and roomy! I like that you can have your classes in your space. That's on my wish list!

Crystal Komara said...

OMG, Anne, what a fabulous space! I love that your room is multipurpose for you and the family! Your stamp storage is so organized and I store my washi tapes the exact same way as you! xo Crystal

Terrific large space for you, Anne. It's nice when the family can be close by, too.

Wow you are one organized Lady! And I love how you carved a little piece of heaven out of the family room!

I love your craft room! It is spacious - something I wish I had a lot more of. That furniture is so beautiful, and perfect for all the storage you need.

Anne that is a lot of space. How nice you can have your family in the same area as you craft! I really like how you have a magnetic strip above your Big Shot station for the current framelits in use. Great tip. :)
