Hammer, I wish I could say it's always this organized and neat. It's not. The shelves and closet stay organized (not because of any effort on my part, lol). The table tops are almost always covered with odds & ends and piles of papers. I usually have to clear a space when I start working. Plus, the kids bring toys in here throughout the day.

I'll try to post a couple cards and pages later today. Thanks.

Final card. It doesn't show in the pics, but the top of this card is cut on an angle so that it has a layered-look when it is folded.

Oh, btw, most or all of the stamped images and ink on these cards are from Stampin' Up. Not that it matters. I don't sell their products, but I'm not sure if they have some kind of a copyright policy.

These are a few of the scrapbook pages I've completed. I covered the faces in the pics.

Wow Looks Great... Good use of space. Looks fantastic! I love the look of crownmoulding but definately hate cutting it. Not bad if you only had to go and replace 1 miscut piece.

Thanks!

That's the nice thing about using the corner pieces. It's just a matter of cutting straight lines. I also used one in the center of each of the two longer walls.

im so envious! Fantastic work!
Im working on a craft room right now..and like you said in a much earlier post..the cost of shelving-yikes! Im trying to keep an eye out for used shelving but my car isnt big enough to haul something away I want on craigslist..I have no idea what to do with that darn room but now that I have four additional people in the house I need this space of my own more than ever.

I love to work on crafts, moreso jewelry..but right now its all in a big pile on the floor ..waiting for its owner to come up with something
Im sure you've been there..wish me luck. (and again-great job!)

That is so true. It's good to have a place to go for some peace and quiet. Having a spot for all of your stuff is nice too. When you need something, you know right where to go to get it.

Yes, the price of shelving is outrageous. If you come up with a design for your stuff, Lowe's (and maybe Home Depot?) will cut 4'x8' sheets of wood down for you. You might be able to take it home in your car that way.

My problem wasn't getting it home, but I didn't have a place to build the shelves. No garage. So I had to build them in the living room. Hopefully I'll never have to do that again.

If you find something that would work for you on Craig's List, offer the person who has it some money to deliver it. It might or might not work, but it's worth a try.

I do wish you good luck with it. You'll be happy once it's all set up.

If you live anywhere near an IKEA, they seem to have a lot of different kinds of storage stuff. They finally built one in Michigan, but it's on the other side of the state.

Have you gone on www.craftforum.com yet? It's just getting started, but it's really nice. There is a forum on there just for beading and jewelry.

Thanks for the compliment and again, good luck!

I live about an hour from ikea..I tried to have something delivered once and the delivery fee was outragous..it was a big item but wow..it was more than the item

I did sign up in the craft forum..I just havent been crafting since this room is literally torn up. I really want to get some stuff together for halloween-its my favorite time ofyear.


If my room comes out half as good as yours I will be happy

My scrapbooking room


The desk I was using for the computer was too small and it wasn't very sturdy. You can't tell in the picture, but there were 4 legs on it.

I put 3 metal brackets on the wall to support the back of the counter top. Those aren't pencil marks on the wall, they're marks from the other desk.

Out of curiosity, is there a stud finder on the market that works? I tried mine and it was finding studs all over the place - but never in the same place twice . I ended up tapping a hammer on the wall, listening for the spots that sounded the least hollow. Even with that, I ended up having to drill a few small holes side by side until I found the studs .

I used the legs from the other table to support the front of this one.

Here it is put back together. You can't see the front legs from this angle. One is on the other side of the chair and the other is hidden by the iris cart.

My scrapbooking room-sb-room-5-re-sized.jpg


With the previous table, the wires were laying on the floor and the surge protector was buried under them. I didn't like that, so I tied them all up together to keep them off the floor. I hung the surge protector on the back of the leg. This makes it easy to turn the power off at night and.... this is the best part, the kids can't find it.

When it was on the floor, one of them would sneak under there once in a while to touch that bright red button.

One other thing I like about this is the hole with a grommet in it to feed the wires through.

My scrapbooking room-sb-room-6-re-sized.jpg


It's all done now. I took the chair out of the way for the picture.

Before I put the brackets up, I measured the height of the two carts and put the brackets high enough so the carts would slide under the counter top.

One sits forward a little bit because the computer is behind it. This is nice because now the kids don't press on the 'pretty green button' on the front of it - because they can't see it.

The cart on the left fit nicely behind the wooden leg, but the bracket under the table blocked it from fitting all the way under. That ended up being a good thing because the kids can't pull the drawers open with the leg in the way.

The cart on the right has Christmas stickers in the top two drawers. The next three drawers down have alphabet stickers, and the bottom drawer has pictures in it.

The cart on the left has odds & ends in it - extra wooden blocks for rubber stamps, cellophane bags, foam stamps, raffia, fat ribbon.

The two smaller stacks of plastic bins on the left side of the counter top hold ink pens and markers, except for one drawer that has small ink pads in it and one drawer that holds small alphabet stickers.

How is it that all the gals can keep everything so neat and tidy, and my place always looks like a bomb exploded two minutes ago!
