I am blessed to have two rooms to do all things crochet, craft, knitting, sewing, card making and office work...It's taken me over 4 years to get both areas set up to where they are easy to work in.  At one point I had to literally both rooms apart, flip their use and focus and start over.  This is what I have to show for it:

Looks fantastic! :)

I wish mine was as organised but I'm hoping it will be soon (moving house and have a 3rd bedroom I can conquer). :lol

 

But don't tell Mr Skoggy :P :devil

This is the 3rd time I've tried to write this post and I keep losing the post...the top 3 pics are of the craft area...there is a computer in the computer cupboard by the window for design purposes, the cutting table is awesome as it can fold up as in the picture or extend to three times it's size and has space to store stuff.  I have my crochet, craft, knitting, sewing and writing library on the corner shelves; children's books from my youth on the shelves under the window and extra shelves to storage odds and ends.  Still a work in progress.  The yarn and project storage in the next two pictures is definitely a work in progress as what's showing is not all that I have...the last pictures are of my Tree House office and sewing room.  The curtain with the heart is from my wedding in 2001.  Behind it is fabric and craft stuff...the dresser holds craft stuff and the bookshelves hold my small Barbie collection and trinkets and still needs to be reorganized.  This is a very small room, about 7 feet by 13 feet.  But as it's set up now, I can actually get real paper work and sewing done.  This has taken over 4 years to get to this point...

Wow  you are an inspiration for me to complete mine.   I have to push hard to open the door to get into my craft room as I have bins down and open everywhere.  I have a wall unit that I was cleaning out and organizing and never finished.   good work that you have done in your room

I want a craft room.  Right now only have containers in corners around the house.  I am jealous.

Man I hear ya about the containers...some of mine are in the attic temporarily and out on the cover porch...and it's been like working a puzzle to get things just so because there truly is only so much room.

SWEET!!! How cool is that!

Thanks...
