UPDATE OF MY SCRAPROOM.. NEW PICTURES AND A VIDEO TOUR...

HELLO MY CRAFTY FRIENDS... 
HAPPY SUNDAY!!
I will go tonight to pick my DH from the airport .. coming back from a week at Dominican Replubic like me he has a hobby ... and this past week he when to a event to enjoy some time at what he likes and meet with friends and family.
I was ask by this blog CRAFTY STORAGE if they could post my room... and sure that is awesome. Check the blog.. if you like to check craft rooms you will love this blog.
I just did some changes in my room, got rid of my magazines.. donated them., to make some more space. 
MY ROOM IS A SHED 10'x16' OUTSIDE MY FLORIDA HOME...
For details see post HERE (MARCH 2009)
Here are pictures and a mini YouTube video; I did with my Iphone.



View to the room from entrance...

Right side of the wall, ribbon station, flowers in containers hold by magnet. That small book shelve holds some of my cricut cartridges, if you could see that little bag at the edge of my table on the cup holder, that was made for me by Kathy from Kathy Cozies, to match my Expression, Imagine and Gypsy cozies she made also for me.. 

this is a older picture but you could see the flower containers and ribbon holders...

Most of my clear stamps are stored in CD cases, and this is my display.

Here is a view of my table.. love my work space.. on the right there you could see my new add to the room the shoe holder that now holds my embossing folders, tools, adhesives, ATG gun, my Gypsy, heat gun, wipes and more...

A better view of the shoe holder and here is the rest of my cricut cartridges, got this CD holder at a garage sale for $2. missing a shelve, not bad. Also here is a Making Memories ribbon station with draws in top are MM storages for brats, buttons and eyelets.

better look at the MM storage solutions...


 This is the right corner of the room where I have my cutting area, my beloved Purple cow trimmer. Here are all my partern papers, on the shelves there is my Pazzle, My MM slice (dont use) My Dream kutz (love that tool), copic makers and the rest of my smaller size PP. Under the table I have a Iris container holding tons of stuff.. in the wood one are all my Closed to My Heart paper kits.

Behind my cutting area is my Cricut Expression on as small computer desk I found in someones trash.. now my treasure, yes that is a cozie also may by Kathy.. you like it, check her work HERE, look you also could see here my ink pad holder caddy from Close To My Heart. Under the table is my MS scoring board, in those containers I have my punches, my gypsy stuff, my story things. 

Here is my Cricut Imagine with her cover, there are tons of stuff in this area, here used to be my Mac Computer now is in my husband computer room, that way when I'm posting, I spend time with him there, I could use the laptop here if I need a computer. Up in the top right is memorabilia from online friends, left side my unfinished albums, baskets with all kinds of adhesives. I have all my envelopes for cards here. That white storage holds my 12x12 white CS for the Imagine and my markers and pens, If you click the picture you will see this metal holders racks, those are the ones that go in your pantry to make space, great to add space under this shelves.. 

View of my other working table... those bskets hold more clear stamps, my Close to My Heart, and other companies that I'm not able to transfer to CD cases. Those mini white containers hold all my scraps by colors (will see on the video) under table are more Iris containers that are holding more organize by theme stuff, they are label. Can you see there in the left corner my Making Memories carousel, that my second one. Also there is my Cuttlebug.. and yes again with a Kathy Cozie.

left side of the room... plenty of storage. Here are all my solid color cardstock, the black and beige storage which are discontinue hold flowers, glitter, mini stamps, and so much more.. those green baskets are from the dollar store, holds stuff that needs to be put away at some point, below is other containers holding my mat size books. The white containers are holding CD cases with more stamps, and my Spellbinders Nestabilities (will see in video), bottom draws hold 8.5x11 papers perfect. 

View from the other end of the room.
