My New Crafty Corner...

Here it is! My own lil crafty spot... it's not much, but it's all mine ;) The desk is a computer desk - it has that annoying keyboard shelf underneath... I was going to take it off, but I've gotten used to it now and it's a great spot for storing my unfinished cards and coloring!
To the right of my desk, I have my beloved Making Memories carousel! It mainly hold my Copics, SU markers, scissors, adhesive, Crop-a-dile, etc. All those lil tools that you want to keep handy ;)
Underneath that, I have my lil green basket of Greeting Farm stamps! They're all hiding in there! Behind them, hides my lonely Making Memories Slice :) She's been a bit neglected, but I have big plans for her soon! hee, hee!
Here is my side table!
On top, I have placed my Epic Six Tool, a box holding a few embellies and stickers. The green basket is holding all of my ribbon... and you can see the clear tins holding my Primas and Papertrey Ink Buttons ;) Underneath the green basket is a small plastic bin holding my inks...
In the bottom portion of the table, I have my punches in the clear basket, the blue basket is holding some unmounted stamps and the green lidded bins are holding embellies and my 2 sets of Nesties :)
Here is my old desk - it's in a corner in the other side of the room holding storage stuffs. My printer is on there and a few things for knitting ;)

... Oh, and ya can't forget the crafty magazines!!!

I have a bit of space in my walk-in closet too!
On the shelf, I have my finished layouts laying flat on shelves, my SU, Unity and Heidi Swapp stamps...
Underneath, I have my "special shelves" that hold my precious much saved and horded DP ;)
I also have a bin that is 1/4 full of Michael's dollar stamps and some more stickers. And yes, that's my never been used Bind-It-All... sigh... I must get to her soon too! ;)

And last, but certainly not least!!!
Here is my boys crafty stuff ;)
I was able to get them their own CuttleKids for around $12!!!
They have a few dinosaur and Disney stamps that we were able to scrounge up out of the Michael's clearance racks and they even have their firs set of dies! LOL!
... and if you look closely, it seems that they went thru my stash and 'borrowed' my CTMH stamp set and Cosmo rub-ons and stickers! lol!

So there it is! My lil corner! All mine! I took a pic after I cleaned up last night 'cause that is sooooo NOT the way it looks like when I'm creating!!! LOL! I manage to take everything out at the same time and end up with half the stuff all over the floor!!! Hubs was complaining of tripping hazards!!! LOL! oh well!, just sue me ;)
OH! and dear ol' Hubs was the one to point out to me that I've themed my area with Making Memories colors - green, white and black! LOL! ;)
Hope to see y'all later with a few challenges :)

Wow, I don't think my DH would even know who making memories are, pat yours on the back from me :-)
Isn't a place of your own great, no matter how big or small just the fact that you can start something and not have to pack it away is wonderful.

Wow love your craft room. It's so well organize. TFS.
