My Playroom

Wow! I can't believe I haven't posted on my blog in over two years!  I thought my "first" post should be about where I spend so much time - my  craft room.  My daughter, who was two when we developed our basement and created this room, always called it Mommy's playroom.  Now, that is what the entire family calls it.  I even have it on my door in vinyl.

This is the view as I enter my playroom.  You can see my Expression, Expression 2, my Imagine, and my double packed bookshelf of Cricut cartridges.   I have no idea how many cartridges I have.  I'm afraid to count them!  The shelf that my Cricut machines are on hold scrapbooking kits from various companies.

The right side of my playroom has my Recollections cubes that I spent about a week putting together.  This is where I keep some of my paper, chipboard, card kits, embellishments, and vinyl.  The wire racks on the top hold my Stampin`Up paper.

 The left side of my room holds my work table, old-style Stampin`Up punches, and my Stampin`Up ribbon.

 My punches are on Bygel rails I got at Ikea.  It`s such an easy organizational method for punches.

 My cat, Elsa, follows me everywhere I go, so I bought a bed for her while she`s in my room.  It is usually on my work table because otherwise she`s in my face and walking on my projects!

I occasionally make  paper chains for my daughter to use as a countdown for something she`s looking forward to, like the first day of school.  This paper chain is for a half marathon I`m planning to do in August of 2013.  I thought my playroom was an appropriate place for it since I spend so much time in here.

I got the wire racks for my 12x12 Stampin`Up cardstock at a LSS that was closing.   The organizer on the back of my door holds more of my punches.  I think I may have a little punch obsession!

I think I may have a little stamp obsession too!  There are even more in the closet.

My closet is bit of a mess right now.  It holds a mish mash of items that don`t really have a place anywhere else in the room.

I hope you enjoyed the tour of my organized chaos!
