My favorite crafting area....

I wanted to take a picture of my favorite space in my crafting area. I technically don't have a craft room right now. I used to and then had to transform that room into my daughter's room so I've been hoarding all of my crafting stuff in my bedroom.  I usually use the dresser as a make shift table and have all of my  Christmas paper and each child's scrapbook and associated papers in one of those large reusable cloth bags.  We are moving in the next few months (July as of now) so I have been packing up things I don't use right now and storing them in the closet of my now very small mini home.
My favorite scrapping space is my make shift Cricut station that holds all of my basic crafting needs. I rearranged my kitchen before my daughter was born just to have this to keep my Cricut supplies,cardstocks and paper pads on.  I also invested in one of those drawer thingy's to keep all of my extra's in.
So here is my space. God bless great husbands who appreciate me taking up this corner of our bedroom until the house is built!

 The blue binder holds all of my larger and those little stamps sets such as my Peachy Keen stamps, and the small size that you usually find in the dollar bins at Michaels. It also holds all of my letter stickers.  The small green binder is print offs of sketches that I love. This shelf also holds all of my 8 1/2" x 11 cardstock assorted by pack (all Recollections), my Cuttlebug and my other clear stamps sets (My Pink Stamper, Hero Arts, Tim Holtz, etc). Up top 2 rows deep and then another stack is my Cricut Cartridges.
 Down below I have my extra ATGgun, Xyron, my 12 x 12 cardstock, paper pads, scrapbooking books and magazines. The photo box is where I store my finished cards
Here is my little cart.  Top drawer is extra adhesives and my Crop a dile. Second drawer is bling, brads,eyelets,etc;, 3rd drawer is my embossing powers and Stickles, fourth drawer is Stampin' Up sets and my inks and other stamps, 5th drawer is my flower embellies and other embellies and last drawer is my ribbon and twines.
On top of the drawers in the front basket is my markers, scissors, and scrap stuff assorted by theme (Halloween, baby, Easter, etc). Behind this is a file system that holds all of my scrap cardstock and papers by colors.
