My craft room!

I gladly present to you, my office! I am in love with this room. I was able, between yesterday and today, to get it in pretty decent shape! I doubt it will look this clean until we have a party or something like that here! LOL!

The door to the office!

The corner ... (you can see the hinges to the door on the left edge there).

My ribbon holder ... dh made it for me. I have to say, I do love it. Mostly because he made it and I think that is sweet. There is also under cabinet lighting there that he put in for me =)

moving down the counter ...

close-up of the fabric stash ... they should all be ironed and refolded, but well, I'm a bit lazy!

Embroidery corner!
The machine fits perfectly in this space and the thread for it hangs right behind it!

The other sewing machine. Not nearly as great of a spot, but a workable spot. Some more thread hanging on the wall (again, dh did that for me). And you can't see the cabinets above this counter, but he also put under-cabinet lighting on these as well. It really made a huge difference in the room truthfully. It was on the dark side before he did it all.

Another corner. The little tv is actually sitting in a corner designed for a computer, but I like my little tv there. I watch a lot of hgtv down there, but I also watch mtv and other shows I wouldn't watch with the kids around LOL!
Also, the cabinets/lights show up in this picture that I was talking about before ...

The other wall .... I think the picture makes it look cluttered, but when I am in the room, it doesn't feel cluttered to me. There is the one window in the room. It does let in some light, but not much as it's a window well.
That's the only bummer about being in the basement - lack of sunlight, but I am so excited to have my own space and get it all organized, that I'm not complaining just yet lol!

Secret knitting hide-out! LOL!
This is just a small sample of knitting yarns ... mostly the yarn is stuff I have projects in progress on. Most of my yarn is in 3 containers in the laundry room. But I did want some of it to be a bit more easy access, so hence this idea.


  1. That is incredibly impressive. I don't sew, but I think I would gladly learn in a room like that! Actually, I have always wanted to make a quilt. I don't know if I ever will! I do have a small crafty side--I like to make cards.
    Thanks for stopping by to visit. I enjoyed your site.

  2. Wow! That is impressive!! I am so jealous!!

  3. ooooh...I'm simply green with envy! :) LOVE love love your craft room!

  4. Your craft room looks great! I have been trying to do something like that with our den, but my husband likes the room to much to take it over!

  5. Oh my gosh, that is FABULOUS! I am so jealous! My crafty (knitting) stuff is just spread out all over the living room sofas right now. LOL.


Seeing your comments makes me smile! Thank you so much =)
