New home update

We moved into our new home about a month ago and we finally feel like we are home.  I bet we unboxed one hundred boxes!  It sure felt that way.  We moved from a fairly large home to a much smaller one!  I can see a yard sale in our future!
I wanted to show you an update to my craft room.  My sisters came over and help me set up the room.  It was really a challenge since I had a much larger room in our previous home.  But I do love how it turned out!  

We  had an electrician come and install lights right over my desk!  What a difference!  I can really see the project that I am working on now!  Just love it!  I still use a peg board to store my Spellbinder dies. 

We kept many of the same storage furniture that I had before.  These cabinets still work for my Sizzix machine and score board.  I also have a heavy duty cutter for chipboard that works here too.  My Stampin Up stamps and dies fit on the shelves too!

Years ago, my hubby, made these cubbies for storage for my paper.  They fit beautifully in the space!  I did have to buy some storage racks that hang over the doors.  The one above hold my ribbons!  

The table above was in my old craft room - but now I use it for my Cricut machine and my laptop.  It is very convenient and that space has a lot of natural sunlight from the window!

Here is the other over the door storage rack I bought.  It holds my punches.  Who knew how many
punches I had!  Those suckers are heavy too-I am thankful that this rack can handle it!

Here is another shot of my paper storage area.  The drawers above the cubbies hold scraps of paper by color.  I hate throwing away any piece of paper I may be able to use!

Here is another shot of my desktop.  I purchased an organizer for my Tim Holtz inks.  I also bought Tim Holtz glass mat.  I love using that when I stamp or water color.  It makes for a much faster clean up!

These shelves were in my old craft room too!  I keep my dies ( that don't have stamps that go with them) on magnetic sheets from Stamp N Storage.  I keep them files in clear acrylic bins that are organized according to their use, ex.  Holidays, Flowers and/or nautical dies, etc.  

One more look at my desktop.  I  have been working on making Slim Line Cards.  My new favorite thing.  Also, Rochelle showed us how to  make the cute bouquet of flowers with the vase at our last craft day at her house!

Sorry, for the long post but I thought I would show you my craft room!  I am really feeling motivated to work in this lovely space!

We will be headed to Florida in the next couple of weeks. I will keep you updated!  I can't believe how fast the summer went!  Halloween is almost here.  I wish you all a safe and fun Halloween!
